Today we started recording the second CD of Bel Ayre at DaDa Studios in Brussels.
Entre-temps is a voyage through an imaginary town during the night. In the Dutch medieval poetry as well as the French, references to the dorveille can be found and Bel Ayre was inspired by that. An orgue de barbarie (a small, portable barrel organ) guides the nocturnal travelers past secret lovers, praying monks, the lonely writer, the mother that feeds her child, the broken hearted, dream readers, the sneaky charlatan and the trance of the jabbering drunk for whom the dorveille lasts all night.
Lieselot De Wilde: soprano and barrel organ
Lode Vercampt: cello
Jean-Philippe Poncin: clarinets
