Coltan Mayor Harmonics

– Here is a picture from Escif‘s Magic Piano “Coltan Mayor Harmonics” @Mima, Brussels (an interactive installation for which I   composed the music).
– Opening+Live performance (every hour from 18h-22h), the 1st of february

 

New Album & Tour!

No news? Good news? More news? Real news? Jawohl!
Could all these obscure news stories actually mean that Herr von Louis has a new album on the way and that it will be released in May 2019 by Brussels’ finest: Igloo Records? I’m afraid it does, sir!

That also means a long, long tour following its release is currently being organised and that If you want more information or to book Manu Louis in your city/festival during the Cream Parade Tour (May-December 2019), just drop me a line – louis(at)louislouis.org

Music for Escif’s Installation

I have just composed new music for an interactive installation, the Magic Piano by the great Spanish artist Escif. The installation will be exhibited at MIMA, Brussels from February to April. On the 1st of February, I’ll perform with an augmented version of the Magic Piano during the opening. To give you a little taste of it, here is a video with another similar piece we just did together:
