Sdban Records will reissue parts of the library serie ‘A Special Radio ~ TV Record’ released on the Belgian based Selection Records between 1976 and 1981 on vinyl. Sdban Records teams up with publisher Hans Kusters wo recently bought this catalog. Nonetheless, the first release will be a contemporary adaptation of the original concept by composer Reinhard Vanbergen (Das Pop, Rheinzand).
When Hans Kusters heard some music of Reinhard Vanbergen on the radio, he started dreaming of a new chapter. When asking Reinhard if he would be interested, Reinhard gladly accepted after finding out that one of the original composers from the Selection series, René Costy, had a very similar background, being a Belgian violinist and composer. It seemed like a perfect fit.
While respecting the concept of the past, Reinhard tried to give the record a modern touch, by simulating 10 geometric shapes, using immersive audio. With headphones on, you can detect the geometric shapes that move around your head in a little dance of their own. The mix of vintage and modern synths are an homage to the past while trying to give it something new and bring the concept into modern times. The new album, Selection 19 - Geometric Shapes opens the door to a new special radio and TV-records series, to continue in the same spirit from the past, but with an eye for the future.
Reinhard Vanbergen – Geometric Shapes (A Special Radio ~ TV Record – N°19) will be released on April 23rd.The vinyl version is now up for pre-order on our Bandcamp. There is a limited run of 100 magenta colored vinyl, Sdban Bandcamp exclusive!
