Saxophonist Erik Bogaerts (banjax, Kvartett), guitarist Benjamin Sauzereau (Les Chroniques De L'Inutile) and drummer Jens Bouttery (Jens Maurits Orchestra) form the band 'Llop'. This Belgian based trio play mostly improvised song-like music, often inspired by traditional music. Jens plays drums and creates and manipulates sound by recording Benjamin and Erik live and then using those sounds through different electronic outputs to give the resulting whole an unpredictability. Llop like to challenge themselves with the musically unexpected.
The album 'Lampke' (el NEGOCITO Records) is the start of a musical process that Llop will take further on their Scandinavian tour in July 2015. They are playing concerts in Marieholm and Harlösa (Sweden) and are "in residence" for one week to play a session at the ancient church of Harlösa Kyrka. They will be joined by bassist Brice Soniano.
