tearing the blackbox
TEARING THE BLACKBOX is a collaboration between Canadian musician/producer Kelly Cook (ex-Moev) and Dutch musician/producer Frank Weyzig (Born For Bliss, Vaselyne, ex-Clan of Xymox).
Frank Weyzig and Kelly Cook first met when Clan of Xymox and Moev were touring the USA during the summer of 1989. Frank and Kelly then became friends but lost contact. Now, in the present time, they connected again and in the beginning of 2020 they started working on new music.
S ince Kelly is based in Vancouver / Canada and Frank lives in Amsterdam / The Netherlands, they had to bounce their audio files back and forth, over the internet, across the ocean. In the beginning it was just something they did for fun but all along the way, these first ideas became complete song structures and subsequently these songs became full grown mixes…
And then they reached the point that they actually surprised themselves with the sound output of this new music and decided to start a brand new music project. Frank and Kelly already produced enough material for a complete full album and have now released their first EP ‘Devil World’. A full album release is planned later this year.
T his is what Frank Weyzig has to say about this new project: “”Our idea about the meaning of ‘Tearing The Blackbox’, is the overall concept of ‘exposing and revealing the truth’. Within this concept the Blackbox stands for the placeholder of the truth. A box, shrouded in mystery. Only by tearing this box apart and breaking it, we can reveal the truth and expose what is real.
We live in a time when we can no longer distinguish the truth from a lie on social media and on other different media channels. The internet has become a minefield of disinformation. You have to navigate it carefully. It’s like swimming with sharks.
So get ready to tear apart the (music)box that holds the truth and let the music speak for itself”.
