‘Synchronicity has nothing to do with order, but everything with chaos.’

Life on a plate enacts scaled down human actions, emerging from a plate. Each person a living system on their own, like ‘le petit prince’ of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, but unable to reach over the border, confined to their own action and space. Ladderman stands up and looks over the edge. Another figure is pulling
a house from the earth. Is it a shelter for the person or a shelter for taking care of plants? Anyway, a spot is defined. Someone during a walk in the woods, is this person living in tune with his/her nature? Edgeman is approaching a hole, carefull not to trip over and maybe get lost in

space, or is there another world just beyond the border?

Kaleidonature is an ever growing series of individual photo-reflections turning my natural environment into itself, like sample cards
or condensed realities. The multiplications improve curiosity and thereby offer enhanced concentrated observation, as an act of wondering/wandering through the image and its depicted world.

Similar to the way I wondered and wandered through this nearby forest, I wish you’ll be
able to catch details, your view is grasped for
a prolonged time and your memory might be deepened. You can see these images as liveable parallel surrealities, ready to discover while trying to recollect where you lived them.

Lennert Baerts about SOLACE

I am very happy that you have found the way to my music. This little package is the result
of a very intensive creation process. In this period I was fortuned to surrounding myself with a whole team of incredibly talented and truly lovely people, who all have their hearts in the right place. The creation was a tough but heart-warming process that just started with the idea of writing a bundle of music. However, this naive impetus quickly gave way to an all-in project in which a complete creative community put their heart. So consider it a gift made and assembled with a lot of care and attention.

Solace is probably the most accurate description of my relationship with music. Because for me personally, everyday life is anything but easy. What goes without saying for many is rather confusing, complicated and, from time to time, problematic for me. Despite this, there has always been one constant. And that was making and creating music. In this I find refuge because it offers me a medium to put daily life, which is so challenging, in perspective.

I like to think that the music on both albums represents my evolution as a human being throughout the last years. By trying to create my own artistic world a lot of things have been cleared up and these albums have certainly contributed to it.

Listening to this music will probably give you an insight on how I see things. But just as there is no expectation to share my visions as an individual, I don’t expect you to try to understand nor agree with my story. That is why I invite you not to listen analytically. Don’t look for what everything might just mean. Listen and let your imagination run wild. This bundle is not about success in life, materialism or big achievements. It represents a spiritual process of growth and symbolizes day-by-day improve- ment. It gives me the comfort and energy to take another small step forward tomorrow and to stay hopeful for what the future might hold. Enjoy listening.

With gratitude and humbleness,

 

Lennert
