This little object serves as a memory for a lovely evening at Stuk, Leuven.
It is no big deal.
Thanks to stuk for the show and Sonic Youth for teaching me how to play guitar.
Wixel is the indietronica outfit of young Belgian Wim Maesschalck. His music can be described as a warm & organic mix of acoustic instruments and gentle electronic treatments with a lot of care for detail and subtle nuances. Comparisons have been made to bands ranging from Hood to Fennesz, from Manyfingers to Sigur Rós.
2006 saw the release of Wixel’s debut ‘Heart’. The album was well received and resulted in live shows throughout the Benelux and the UK.
Wixel is: Wim Maesschalck - electronica, guitars; Ulrike Dragon - bass; Nil Ramos - drums.
