BRAM DE LOOZE
After visiting the Chris Maene museum in Ruiselede (BE), Bram was inspired to launch his first solo project with three historical pianofortes. Intrigued by the ancient pianos, and their temperaments and tones, De Looze approaches them via a contemporary musical idiom. Each piano has its own unique sound, which is of a great significance to this project. Always searching for challenges, De Looze effortlessly plays with time and space, and conjures up engaging atmospheres that lead to an idiosyncratic harmonic entity. When building his musical structures, which draw from jazz and contemporary styles, Bram infuses his playing style with the response, timbre, resonance, harmonics and dynamics of each instrument.
