“Adventurous music mixing a variety of genres to create an impressive and surprising result. Dreamy and astral, or just trance-generating and kraut, these are the two facets of the fascinating trio Piloot.” Gonzo (circus) 2018
DEBUT ALBUM OUT MARCH 2017
The eponym debut album delivers 5 instant compositions, a Hypnotic Krautrock in search of a trance-like feeling through repetitive patterns, drones and ecstatic chaos. A leap into the void between impermanence and resurgence; a fine balance between the unexpected and the unforeseen.
PILOOT is being released on a limited edition of 300 vinyls and 50 cassettes. Recorded at « Les Ateliers Claus » (Brussels) by Reno Carton, mixed by Christine Verschorren and mastered by Nicolas David. Visual artist Chloé Schuiten designed the vinyl artwork and handcrafted each cassette sleeve individually.
