Glass Museum

Line up: Antoine Flipo (piano/synthesizers) – Martin Grégoire (drums)

Glass Museum is the ultimate marriage between pure traditional jazz, orchestral arrangements and the mathematics of electronic music. This Belgian duo embraces a sound which can be bombastic and subtle at the same time, building on elements of minimalism and techno. They resemble contemporary artists and groups like Tigran Hamasyan, GoGo Penguin and BadBadNotGood. Nevertheless, these guys have created their own unique sound which makes them one of the new frontrunners of the Belgian jazz nouvelle vague. In 2018 they released their debut album Deux and were one of the highlights at the prestigious Iceland Airwaves festival.
