Antwerp, Belgium (2008 – present)

“…The aim of art is to represent not the outward
appearance of things, but their inward significance”, Aristotle.

Most people will typically associate the set-up of one man and his guitar with folk music. For Microphonics, however, Dirk Serries, the creative force from Antwerp, Belgium behind Vidna Obmana and Fear Falls Burning, has his mind set to different horizons since 2008. Equipped with nothing but a Gibson Les Paul, a few effect pedals and a tube amplifier, he turns clubs, art galleries, unusual performance sites and concert houses into intimate spaces of sonic echoes and shimmering overtones. Allowing for the music to grow from the moment, each performance is unique and makes full use of the ambiance and acoustic characteristics of a venue. You can see Serries capturing his own reflections and sending back replies, twisting and turning his guitar to shape the air around it. Ranging from tender, minimal pieces to disturbing cinematic , his tracks are based on slowly evolving themes which gradually combine into melodies and gracefully flowing harmonic patterns. Microphonics is all about drawing the full potential from a reduced instrumentation - evoking associations with , and alike.
