Hero Wouters and Jessica Bartels clearly never met prior to their performance at Modulab Bell. What we experienced was an engaging dialogue between the seasoned musician and the inspired poet.
They kick off the second performance of Modulab Bells. For Jessica Bartels, all of life seems to be dissolved in a perpetual fairytale. An organic evolving piece of poetry. Our legend, Hero Wouters, supplements her every word with emerging layers of haunting sound from his Ultrakorg. And bells… lots of jazzy bells.
