Clear Tears / Troubled Waters


Tuxedomoon mainstays Steven Brown and Blaine Reininger have joined forces with Belgian musician/sound designer Maxime Bodson to create this fascinating soundtrack for a dance performance by Brussels-based choreographer Thierry Smits. Crammed's legendary Made to Measure "Composers' Series" is revived especially for the occasion.

In early 2013, chroreographer Thierry Smits invited Brown and Reininger to take part in his new work 'Clear Tears / Troubled Waters', which he conceived as a piece for seven dancers and three musicians. Blaine and Steven joined forces with Maxime Bodson, the young Brussels-based musician and sound artist, and created this captivating, powerful soundtrack, which they perform live onstage as part of the dance piece.

Brown and Reininger have previously written and released albums as a duet, but the music in 'Clear Tears / Troubled Waters' is a departure from their previous collaborations. It's a unique blend of electronic textures, instrumental composition and harmonic flavours which seems to draw from early 20th century Modernist music, with lots of unexpected turns and - at times - an almost band-like sound, reminiscent of some of Tuxedomoon's work.
