I Bambini Di Basilisco

by Elko B.

  • EKS013 - 12 inch vinyl
    Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Introducing Elko B.’s debut on Ekster: “I Bambini Di Basilisco”. Twelve tracks pressed on 180g vinyl with pantone printed sleeves and silk screened (glow in the dark) plastic over-sleeve.

    Considering Elko Blijweert's been active in the Belgian music scene for about fifteen years now, it comes as quite a surprise that "I Bambini Di Basilisco"is only his first ever solo album. Known mainly for his virtuoso yet ever idiosyncratic guitar playing, Elko B. treats the listener to much more than just that. With the exception of the heavily guitar-driven western pastiche "Cochon Torrero", the emphasis here lies on dark Carpenteresque synthesizer sounds as well as jolly child-friendly melodies. The twelve pleasantly concise songs, mainly based on compositions Blijweert made as soundtrack material for contemporary dance theatre and children's puppet theatre, beautifully blend together into a whole as the listener is presented with a unique glimpse inside the wide-ranging imagery that is Elko B.'s ever-expanding musical world.

    A1: Une Fille Dansante
