David Poltrock aka Poltrock has been around for some years as a multi-faceted session player, producer, soundtrack composer and sound designer collaborating with premium Belgian bands such as Hooverphonic and Triggerfinger. His first solo release under the Poltrock moniker was the 2018 instrumental trilogy ‘Mutes, Moods & Machines’ in which he displays his affection for intimate piano sounds, menacing drones and pulsating electronica.
Poltrock’s music met with national and international critical acclaim, resulting in a Belgian Music Industry Award for best musician in 2019.
‘Stay/Leave’, the 2020 collaboration with Rotterdam based singer-songwriter Ravvel, adds a lo-fi yet precious melancholic dimension to the already intense mood of his work.
Vacuum is the title of his brand-new project for 2022: a sonic choreography with Adriaan de Roover. The music of Poltrock and de Roover creates a vacuum in which all awareness of spatiality and focus is lost. They are soundscapes that flirt with the smallest and biggest gesture. The sounds move from the most intimate, almost claustrophobic textures to almost monumental and inaccessible sound walls. Soon more info.
