EVERT BRAK FILOSOFIE
6 years of hard work and also another year for the cover we finished
the first cd of
DE EVERT BRAK FILOSOFIE. (The Evert Brak Philosophy).
And we are proud of it. We started the distribution among family and
friends, and now we have to widen our horizon since we are stuck with
too many copies and that is a waste.
The cd is the result of the cooperation of a mime player and a soundengineer.
These two people are Jaap
Oostra and Fokke
van Saane. We experimented with covers from the Beatles and
the Stones, Madonna and Michael Jackson and found a point of view never
heard before on any other cd. And you haven't either. We used a lot
of toy-instruments, we used vacuum cleaners, we used pigs, and also
a real guitar. The Evert Brak philosophy is that we treat musicians
like actors, and not as performers. We tell eachother what role to play,
instead of what to play. We prefer the embarresment of loud singing
out of tune under the shower above a qualified singer in bath. The Evert
Brak Philosophy is theatre on cd. No music to dance on, no synths, you'll
hear real people as people are. Unforeseen changes from completely mad
stupidity to breathtaking touching.
We produced the cd all by ourselves, did the artwork ourselves, and
have not the slightest intension that we will ever equal the cost let
alone the time we've spend on it. But we do want you to buy it since
we think it is worthwhile for anyone who has an open mind for a differend
kind of music. Press on one of the cassettes on the bottom of this page
to hear an MP3 as preview. Here
you can see the cover art work.
You can order the cd by paying 9 euro plus shipping on this account;
