1982, Belgium. Jean Hoyoux creates his album of ‘sound therapy’, e.g. a kosmische
odyssey scored for all sorts of synthesisers, delays and filters. Originally released

label cortizona presents this idiosyncratic music on two LPs, along with liner notes
from Edward Ka-Spel and John Olson.

Most of the October nights in 1987 you could find Gerry Vergult (Aroma Di Amore,
Fred A., Adult Fantasies) and Gerrit Valckenaers (Adult Fantasies, The Colorist
Orchestra) in a desolated top studio in Ghent. At that time and place they sneakily
crafted and shaped this Nasca record while they were supposed to finish a new Fred A.
record. They created an abstract universe where minimal post-punk basslines blend
together with radio sounds in "Nothing Toulouse", tropical tribal vibes oscillates
between futuristic nostalgia and hunted dreams in "Ketama" and "Ritz", a sampled
heartbeat slowly mutates in mesmerizing midnight jazz and a drugged-out dub groove
of "Kamayacha" transforms into the inner city blues of "Josaphat". All tracks
composed, arranged, and performed by Gerry Vergult and Gerrit Valckenaers.

Personnel:   Gerrit Valckenaers - pn., sax., clarinet, synths, samples, electronics
            Gerry Vergult - guitar, bass, synths, samples, electronics.
            Produced by Koen Van Regenmortel.
