videoreleasetour pantomime


A normal album release tour was not possible in pandemic-year 2020, so grunge trio Black Monsoon decided to present the tracks from their new album PANTOMIME with a video tour of eleven special locations.


For example, a live show will take place in the empty hall of the BurgerHaven Pop-up stage, which is yet to be opened, of pop-venue Burgerweeshuis. “The contrast of the empty hall in this lockdown is typical of this year without performances. It sounds a bit dramatic, but actually that's just what it is.", says drummer Marjolijn Dokter.


The live shows have been arranged down to the last detail with the collaboration of sound engineer Alex Cailliau (working with Ernst Jansz and The Gathering), light artist Freek Ros (working with De Staat and Altin Gun) and recorded by filmmaker Eric Zwiers (working with Maaike Ouboter and Ajax). , the audio mix was provided by Sander Holmer (working at Hedon and Burgerweeshuis), the whole was supported by set assistant Tom Klein Beernink (working at Hip & Hanneke and The Freaks).


In the autumn of 2020 and sprind of 2021 Black Monsoon will release a new live registration of a track from their album every week. Singer/guitarist Jacky Kwast explains: “We want people to discover our music as it is intended, with a complete atmosphere in the right live setting. They can't go to a decent rock show of ours, so we just come home via the laptop.

Not too long, just a song of two or three minutes to continue working from home in good spirits.” The video release tour is made possible in part by the Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds.
