Hi All

We had a great time last evening in 't Tejaterke.
Around 60/70 people found their way to this nice small venue.
This was John Kerr's final stage performance sadly.
Which is a great loss because we will not see this great showman
and musician preform live anymore!!
But yesterday was great to see him finding the energy to play over 2 hours!!
It was a moving evening with lots of laughter!
Here a small video Rob Enzlin made during the second part.

I want to thank all who came, Harold and John for the great music,
Bas Broekhuis for the light control and the technicians of 't Tejaterke
In September the new John Kerr will be released.
For those who want a peek of the music listen here!

======= Reviews ======
37757 BySenses - People

Paul Verkempinck 5e volledige beluistering van de dubbel-cd PEOPLE. En
even overtuigd als na de eerste beluistering. Een fantastisch 'magnum
opus". Mocht PEOPLE in de jaren 80 zijn uitgebracht, dan stond die
zeker hoog in de "charts". Soundscapes, chill-out, ambient, lounge,
Berlin School en zelfs elektronische pop/rock met véél zang. BySenses'
People is een ultra-gevarieerde en al bij al fantastische concept-cd
van méér dan 100 minuten met heel wat "oorwurmen" en obsederende
ritmes. Sterk en warm aanbevolen.

 65732 Jesper Sorensen - Zero Gravity

I have to say that it's pretty hard not to fall in love with this last
opus of Jesper Sorensen. The demolishing of our eardrums activated by
heavy, incisive and wild percussions is as much effective at the level
of the hearing pleasure as these synth solos which travel between
Jean-Michel Jarre's harmonies in the land of Michael Garisson. Heavy,
slow, lively and floating, the multiple patterns of rhythm in “Zero
Gravity” entail us in an electronic fable of more than 80 minutes of
which the incredible violence of the percussions redefined the genre.
"Dark Matter" opens in ambiences this 2nd opus of the Danish musician
who lives now in York, England. A shrill sound signal and waves of
white noises switch on these ambiences while a synth line spreads a
foggy shadow. A delicate movement of the sequencer frees a harmonious
line which pods its keys in a good circular hypnotic structure. Other
sequences join this musical rhythm. Their greasy ton es wrap them with
a crunchy wool which will make resound another rhythmic aspect of
“Zero Gravity” throughout its 10 titles, among which two in bonus. The
opening of "Ascending" follows the noisy curve of "Dark Matter". But
for the rest, it's another story. Heavy percussions knock out these
atmospheres, sculpting a rhythm of lead which bangs into us
charmingly. Sequences and percussions, as well as percussive effects,
reveal a rhythmic fauna which will amaze, by the violence, and will
charm, for the precision, throughout this album. The feeling to float
between the universes of Zoolook and Révolutions is insurmountable in
my mind. Set apart the percussions and the sequences, Jesper Sorensen
takes all the latitude to insert very good harmonious solos, that we
can whistle easily, and electronic effects very in the tone of an
album without gravity. "Navigating" proposes a waving rotary motion
which derives with a stroboscopic effect in the series of sequences.
The percussions hammer h e avy lead in this attractive structure of
sequences which waddle in a spheroidal way. They are incisive and
their strikes divide the rhythmic reach which pitches between a usual
electronic movement and a big jerky up-beat. The synth weaves good
areal solos while blowing nice melodious layers which grip onto our
eardrums. These melodies return with more swiftness into the furious
rhythm of "Finally Falling". Another strong title which is blasted by
monstrous percussions.
"Into Space" follows with a structure of rhythm, always clubbed well
by violent percussions, which goes adrift with these sequences of
which the tones full of juices and of gurglings charm our ears since
"Dark Matter". The synth multiplies good solos, abandoning any imprint
of melodies in this structure of floating beat. The percussions
collide again the movement of the sequencer languishingly circular of
"Breaking Through" and its floating and charming solos for the
eardrums. Divided between the rondnesses of seq uences starved for
good cosmic Groove and the bombardment of the percussions, the rhythm
evolves with its fluids variations while remaining constantly lively
in its cosmic envelope. An envelope fed by lines of celestial voices
which add a not too intrusive seraphic flavor, leaving an imprint
charming to this approach very Jean-Michel Jarre, in particular at the
level of harmonies in the synth solos. The title-track throws us in a
very extraterrestrial universe with an effect of gigantic loops
decorated with sound effects from another world. Certainly, the
flavors of cosmic rock in the best years of Jarre can be found here
and they soften a little this a bit unusual introduction. The step of
the sequencer resounds piercingly. Destabilizing the opening of "Zero
Gravity", it calls the percussions for help in order to forge another
ear-catchy cosmic rhythm as heavy than as slow. This rotary and
spasmodic movement of the sequencer is of use as bases to very good
cosmic solos on a struct u re which evolves with a form of contracted
velocity in its second half. The undulatory and parallel movements of
the sequencer which feeds the opening "Beyond Time" are sprayed by an
excessive heaviness fed by another load of the percussions and by very
round sequences which dab an ostinato coated with sound effects which
incite to the stridency. In this overloaded sound noise, Jesper
Sorensen managed to keep a harmonious control with other good catchy
solos. Phew … my ears are thirsty of peace after 65 minutes of
rhythmic storm. But there is more! Two bonus tracks come with the
download of “Zero Gravity”. "Dark Matter Breaking Through" are both
tracks in one, which is very logical, whereas "Ascending (Short
Edition)" says it all. But there is even more when you buy this title
on the site Bandcamp de Jesper Sorensen. The latter has edited 2 long
titles which melt all the music here in two long parts without
intermissions between them. An excellent initiative which gives to
those wh o buys this album more for their money. But whatever, this
album, without bonuses, is an inescapable for those who like a heavy
and very lively electronic cosmic rock. My ears ate it with delight
from beginning to end!
