In 1980, Belgian-born multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Joel Vandroogenbroeck revived his early ‘70s avant-garde electronic act Brainticket alongside longtime member Willy Seefeldt, jazz musician Hans Deyssenroth, and Swiss jazz & electronic aficionado Bruno Spoerri.
Three years later the quartet would perform their very first show in a landmark performance at the “Computer und Musik” symposium in Zürich, Switzerland.
Though long a part of Brainticket lore, this concert has never before been released on a commercial format and now comes perfectly paired with an equally historic performance in 1984 at the Théatre de Beaulieu in Lausanne, Switzerland.
Inclusive also of Vandroogenbroek and Spoerri plus Peter Fürst, both of these full-length concert recordings contain improvisations and compositions not found anywhere else and, from start to finish and a pure musical joy to behold.
