Surreal visuals, adventurous electronica & mysterious Wunderkammers

Geoffrey Burton & Sarah Yu Zeebroek

Guitarist Geoffrey Burton and artist Sarah Yu Zeebroek go way back. They have shared the stage countless times as members of the band Hong Kong Dong and have now made their vows to each other offstage. At the request of Voor?uit, they are now planning to perform together as a duo for the first time. 

With her surreal imagery, Zeebroek will accompany dancing guitar-dervish Burton as he loses himself in his playing. For this accompaniment she will utilise two old overhead projectors and a whole box of visual tricks and surprises. The musical compositions are from Burton's debut album ‘Me Ta Podia’, which was released in 2020 on the Gong Ear label. Although it sounds like an electronic composition, the record was made entirely on guitar and recorded as one performance. A wild gem of a show!

Kaboom Karavan

Kaboom Karavan is the alter ego of sound wizard Bram Bosteels. With a mix of homemade instruments, acoustic string instruments and electronics, he creates a unique world of sound. Kaboom Karavan has released four acclaimed albums on the Berlin label Miasmah, and played live performances at home and abroad (at the AB, BOZAR, Worm, ReNew Festival, HalfDie Fest and many more). Bosteels has also made soundtracks for theatre, dance and film productions.

The latest album from Kaboom Karavan, ‘The Log and the Leeway’ has received rave reviews in the national press. "It’s a delight to spend time in this mysterious Wunderkammer", wrote Dancing Bears (****). Humo: "The combination of found objects and traditional instruments results in folk music from an imaginary world. The journey is exciting and even surreal at times." Live, Bosteels is accompanied by Stefaan Smagghe (violin, sarangi) and Liesbeth Marit (live visuals, electronics). Marit orchestrates a live transformation of the artwork into a visual universe.
