Pianist, singer and post-doctoral researcher all in one – Ghent’s Annelies Monseré channels emotional intelligence. Her minimalist setup of instrument and voice causes her music to feel both intimate and desolate. Calm medieval melodies complement her phantasmal voice, recalling the sparser side of eighties ‘Ecto’ – a style best known through Julee Cruise or Cocteau Twins. Emerging from the Belgian experimental scene, her sounds are deservedly finding ears via the renowned STROOM label, amongst others. After a short spell in this city a decade ago, we are very honoured to welcome Annelies back to Utrecht.
