Andries Boone has been a stalwart of many Belgian renowned artists for almost 20 years.
In 2001 he was co-founder of the cinematic experimental band ‘The Ballroomquartet’.
In 2011 he founded the mandolin quartet ‘MANdolinMAN'. Now, he finally releases his first soloalbum, called C.O.L.O.R.S.
March 2019 Andries released his solo debuut C.O.L.O.R.S; an instrumental record, built around the sound of the acoustic mandolin and inspired by contemporary big bands, music from the baroque era and movie scores by the likes of Henry Mancini and Lalo Schifrin. All track titles are inspired by the industrial poetry of Peter Van Eyck, an artist who hails from Louvain (Belgium). Peter links colors he sees to automobile brands and their
corresponding color name.
After C.O.L.O.R.S (2019), Andries Boone proudly announces his second solo album, called “T.I.M.E.L.A.P.S.E”. T.I.M.E.L.A.P.S.E was composed and recorded during the second Covid-lockdown in 2020. Each track corresponds to a specific moment in time, is linked with an emotion and reflects a filmic mood and state of mind.
Accordina, mandolin and piano form the basis of the sound. Electric bass and French horn flavour all tracks. A crossover sound between minimal piano music and jazzy film music, but always inspired by baroque music and traditional folk music, more specifically Caucasian ethnic music. The accordina plays an important role on this imaginary soundtrack. The accordina is a wind instrument of the 1930s. It sounds a bit similar like the chromatic harmonica and the instrument is mouth-blown aswell, but the instrument is played by buttons like a button accordion. The instrument is almost extinct.
