After studying in Iceland and living in New York, MARIS is based back in Brussels where she engages in a brand-new collaboration with singer Silke Blankers. The live set introduces new compositions and is marked by the distinct sound of two voices balancing on ever evolving drones of electronic detail and delicate expressions.
On the album
On Gods and other Things is a debut album by MARIS, the solo project of Belgian singer Mariske Broeckmeyer. This album was created during her stay in Iceland.
My head tends to forrest itself with questions. Wonder derived from observations on this world. Intrigued by our timeless need for Gods and Things. Creating tiny universes In which their relationship shifts constantly. A Whisper-shout of little question songs, guided by a rille, that ́s only there by accident. Or is it not?
