Bramlaan
Aloft In A Balloon
-
New (almost clean) vinyl rip, 320 kbbs
7 horses / 7h2001
Released in 1981.
-
In 1979 Bram Laan won the "vara's voorstelling", a new talent contest. Bram meets Don Willard who's got a recordingstudio (MusicFarm). Bram starts writing and recording with Don and the result is "Aloft In A Balloon".
-
Bram tells on his homepage that Jimi Hendrix is his main inspiration. He is also influenced by Peter Gabriel, Preisner, David Bowie, Prince, Sting and Deep Forest. The way Bram Laan sings resembles that of Peter Gabriel.
-
He uses strange soundeffects like thunder, rain, deformed vocals and walking on gravel. You might think that you get some weird psychedelic stuff but you don't. What you get is Electronic Acoustic Fantastic.
