Bio

NL

Instrumentale band opgericht door drummer/componist Jonathan Callens (o.a. Kiss The Anus Of A Black Cat, Humble Grumble) met Joshua Dellaert (Skordatura Punkjazz Ensemble) op bas en Jan Ghesquière (Sinister Sister performs Zappa) op gitaar.

Hun debuutalbum 'Glasstic Drops' werd in het najaar van 2014 op de wereld losgelaten en kreeg lovende recensies in oa. RifRaf magazine en op enola.be, snoozecontrol.be en demofarm.be. Een jaar later ligt de EP 'Nandrin Sessions' al in de rekken, met 4 tracks symbool voor de nieuwe, ruigere sound van Altertape.

Donkere soundscapes, filmische thema’s, beklijvende improvisaties over vette beats en verrassend in het oor kruipende melodieën: dat mag je van dit trio getalenteerde muzikanten verwachten. Door de mix van muzikale invloeden gaande van jazz en drum&bass, over post-rock en ambient, tot minimalisme en elektronica, creëert Altertape een heel apart geluid dat veel muziekliefhebbers kan bekoren: denk aan een kruising tussen Dans Dans, Stuff en Cinematic Orchestra.
