Codes was recorded in the Kievitsnest Kerk, Antwerp, and the basement of Villanella, Antwerp.
Both of these are highly resonant spaces and were a pleasure to experience. The church we know well (Cosmic Sequence was recorded there) but the basement was new. It was formerly the safe and storage area of a major bank in the city center, now empty, a beautiful rectangular cave.

We recorded live using loops and delays to create some complex textures to contrast with other more simple harmonies. We also used brass instruments, trumpets, cornetto, tuba and alto horn in some of the pieces. There is one loop of a toy and the sound of the tram passing.

many thanks go to Villanella for letting us work there and Afreux for helping with the cover.
also thanks to Jo Thielmans for engineering.

Codes is so far a limited edition of 100.
