We long wanted to go beyond the piano and introduce synthesizers, choir and orchestra in Joeps music because we both come from a more electronic music background. It only happened ever so slightly in Impermanence on Prehension. In the closing chapter of of the trilogy that started with Solipsism and Prehension Joep wanted to go deeper.
The demos for Henosis were finished in 2017 and it took the most of 2018 to transcribe, record and mix all tracks.
It was a great project with great people. Recording and mixing more than 500 tracks (in different tunings) into 2. Creating a sonic journey of almost 2 hours of shapes and Joeps stories, blending acoustics and electronics, classical and the present moment.
“this rich amalgamation of electrical sounds and classical traditions are realized perfectly with history resolving itself into present moments. Henosis is a music searching for something lost. And now found.”
