Lunascape - Reflecting Seyelence
发行日期：July 19, 2005
Lunascape sound mixes catchy rhythms, ethereal samples and loops and rock Guitar, blended carefully with smooth melodies and Kyoko's enchanting voice. At the core of Lunascape are musicians Kyoko Baertsoen and Walter Hilhorst.
The duo originally met in 1993 at the Television and Film Academy in Brussels, Belgium and began to fiddle around with covers and some original material. In 1997, Kyoko was offered the spot of lead singer for Hooverphonic and her work with Walter was put on the back burner. After touring Europe extensively with Hooverphonic, Kyoko left the band and returned to her work with Walter; Lunascape was born.
Lunascape landed a record deal in 1998 and singles began to trickle out over the next few years. But it wasn't until 2002 that Lunascape's debut album Reflecting Seyelence was released, showcasing the group's ethereal blend of trip-hop, moody pop, and electronic textures framed by Baertsoen's lush vocals.
While the band was releasing singles in Europe, their first North American exposure came in an unusual way. In 2001, Kyoko starred alongside Harry Shearer in the IMAX 3-D film "Haunted Castle". Kyoko plays the part of The Mother and sings the Lunascape song "Lane Navachi". Kyoko became an underground cult figure. Fans uncovered Lunascape's European catalog and import versions began to sell in the US.
In 2003 Lunascape's fortunes took another unusual turn. Sinead O'Connor teamed up with Delerium's Rhys Fulber for his new project, Conjure One. The first single was a cover of Lunascape's "Tears From The Moon" Kyoko and Walter had worked on the song with famed producer Rick Nowels (Madonna, Dido) in his LA studio. Sinead and Rhys' version went to number 3 on Billboard's Dance Chart and hovered in the Top 5 for several weeks becoming a hallmark of dance clubs throughout the world in the Summer of 2003.
2004 marked Lunascape's return to the studio with their second release Mindstalking, as well as the score for another 3-D-Imax movie, "SOS Planet".
That year, Noir Records released an American compilation of their first two albums in under the name Reminiscence. This disc included remixes of their single "Mindstalking" and several video tracks.
Lunascape's new release is Innerside, twelve stunning new tracks, due out February 26th (February 29th EU). Innerside is also available as a two-disc limited edition release featuring an additional 10 previously unreleased tracks, including several from the tv series Flikken.
Lunascape Innerside: the inside has come outside: haunting melodies, deeply atmospheric soundscapes and Kyoko's angelic voice.
