Red BrutRed Brut (NL) is the moniker of Marijn Verbiesen, who is also part of Sweat Tongue and JSCA. As Red Brut, she is isolated, displaying a highly talented ear for day-to-day sounds, musique concréte composition and spontaneous sound collage. She recently presented her self-titled debut LP on Belgian label KRAAK. Red Brut”s music is highly personal, subtle, and displays an ever-curious mind. Although rooted in the sinister absurdism of early 2000s experimentalism, her music embraces and redefines the concept of “music of the universe”, coined by the likes of John Cage and Daphne Oram.
