BLACK LIGHT LIGHT ORCHESTRA presents NORTH PACIFIC (Belgian island music) North Pacific is the latest-aquatic-incarnation of the legendary Black Light (Light) Orchestra, polymorphic UFO of the Brussels underground scene.
Mr Diagonal (mini guitar, voice) and his shipmates Yannick Dupont (percussion, marimba, Moog) and Quentin Manfroy (bass, bass flute, contrabassoon) take us on trip to their fictional Pacific, of subjective geography, variable currents, and a thousand mystic shades of sunset and sunrise.
We share his nautical peregrinations, his storms and calms, his shipwrecks; the ups and downs of desert island life, his attempts at shipbuilding, his manioc intoxications.
On a decor of inflatable palm trees and polychrome slides, North Pacific is an ode to the blue planet, to the liquid element; a celebration of the inner journey and the treasures of loneliness.
North Pacific is a lean, playful, enigmatic pop with a unique density of invention and arrangement. A temperate tropicalia, joyfully depressed; a music of the Belgian islands of the imagination.
