Spiral Consort is an ensemble of musicians who use an unusual instrument- the conch shell. This work of nature is the original trumpet, used since 10,000 B.C.

Spiral Consort is a group of professional brass players from jazz, classical, brass band, baroque, disciplines using techniques of improvisation (of note are the color card and hand signal systems) as well as written compositions to make a new music.

The sound is particularly physical. A main objective of the group is to find interesting acoustic environments for their performances (of note are performances in Antwerp central train station, St. Michiels church in Leuven, Music Academy St. Truiden, Pedestrian tunnel under the river Schelde, a woods in rural Belgium).

They also work in live and studio environments with electronic influences and techniques (of note is collaboration with Andrew Claes, saxophone and electronics).

Having recorded one CD in 2008, Cosmic Sequence, there is now a second collection of new works, Codes. A limited edition release is available as of June, 2013.
