Biography

Pierre Vervloesem is a Belgian avantgarde guitar player and producer.

After playing in a handful of experimental rock bands in the early nineties, Pierre Vervloesem joined avantgarde band X-Legged Sally at the invitation of Michel Mast. Since then, he has been a musical partner of Peter Vermeersch in many musical expeditions, both as a performer and as a producer, for example in A Group and the theatre production Weg (by Josse De Pauw]]. Together, Pierre Vervloesem and Peter Vermeersch produced the first cd by Antwerp rock group dEUS.

Pierre Vervloesem has also released several solo cd's where he experiments with unusual instruments (e.g. shaking a crate of empty beer bottles as percussion) and unfamiliar sounds to create what are essentially quite simple songs. One of Vervloessems main influences is revealed by a song on the 1994 release Home Made, consisting of one minute of silence in memory of Frank Zappa. But tellingly, the same album also contains a cover of John Barry's composition Ski chase, from the soundtrack of the James Bond film On her Majesty's Secret Service. In 2002, Vervloesem would release an entire album of John Barry covers.
