Two years after the release of their album “Reykjavik” – inspired by Iceland’s landscapes – Belgian Electronic Jazz duo Glass Museum comes back to the stage with a new single “Reflet”: an art piece inspired by another kind of travel, more personal and introspective.
In these troubled times, with the writing being guided by the two musicians’ interior travels, “Reflet” brings a new duality for the band, between reality, the wake of experiences and evasion through imagination.
That match between reality and dream is at the core of that dreamlike experience which witnesses a dialogue between the organic instrumentals and electronic beats. The piano brings forth Eastern sounds which progressively tell a languishing tale whilst electronic flows underline a sense of urgency, that of time passing by in a somewhat worrying way.
The video clip features the idea of "Reflection" through a scenography made of 2 transparent nets. These structures floating through space bring upon organic visuals which magnify the musicians' performance. These elements crafted by the OHME collective (a Brussels based organization for production and research in the field of Artscience) come from a polarized lights microscope and are used to question the relationship between the infinitely small and large. The collaboration with OHME collective will stretch forward around the visual elaboration of the album cover.
