Video: Wim Mertens, What You See Is What You Hear, Live in Antwerp, 2005

I heard that Wim Mertens had released a bunch of new videos on his YouTube channel today. I went to check them out; there’s some great stuff from a 2015 concert.

But I remembered the DVD he released some years ago, What You See Is What You Hear. This is a film of a 2005 concert. I prefer the arrangements of the music in that older show: there is an excellent group of six female singers, whereas the 2015 concert is just him and four musicians.

You can check out the concert here. And go to his official channel to see the new videos. This music is so uplifting, some of the most interesting minimalist music there is.
