Coming up: DVD Release













Dion and the Magic Chords blessed the world with their second record, GESTALT.

The integral performance of the release of GESTALT will be released on DVD.

The DVD will feature a live performance of the album accompanied by visuals -a collage of found and self shot footage by Dion- and a video/light plan -designed and implemented by Nolan- in the sensory installation of KMEX.

For those who are not familiar with DATMC, the sound of Dion Woestenburg (keys) and Griffin Stuip (drums) takes you on a journey from your favorite 80s children's show theme song showing up in a fever dream - to Casio's 8-bit arpeggios rocking endlessly in space - from Jung’s wild fantasies - to a Kraftwerk-ish Super Mario Land.

GESTALT was born in the KMEX studio with all the gear DATMC could get their hands on. Many different analogue (toy) keyboards, hunted down and dug up from dusty basements or flea markets, newly discovered synths and drum filters made their way onto the record. They built a drum booth to make the drums pop up, and all possible microphone placements have been tried out. The result is a carefully orchestrated toy keyboard-drum fest.

Commusication KMEX
The release took place at KMEX, Het Grote Ketelmuziek Experiment.
