These past few months Heliophile have been working hard behind the scenes to transform our liveshow. The modular synthesizer, which has been playing a bigger and bigger role in our productions, will now play a leading part at our concerts. Backing tracks are a thing of the past and everything will be sequenced and played live. We can’t wait to present our new sound to you! Mark Sunday afternoon December 8th in your diaries, because then you can attend a try-out of this new setup at an intimate, yet to be announced, location somewhere in our home region of Twente.
Sadly, Bernard is saying goodbye to the band. As diverse as he has shown to be in his long-time involvement with Heliophile, he has come to the conclusion that the synthesizer will never really be a part of his musical DNA. On December 8th he will say goodbye to our audience with a guest vocal performance. Gijs and Maarten will continue as a duo. Fewer humans, more machines!
