The project

Who the f* is ...?

 

 

My name is Kaat Arnaert. I am a singer and an actress. I am currently an Artist in Residence at the Ancienne Belgique and the time is now absolutely right to record my first album.

Singing, playing and writing. These are all fabulous things which keep dreaming and fantasy alive. I used to hope that one day I'd be able to fly or do magic. My 'switch' is set  to infinity. I guess you can call me a dreamer in the clouds, a box of xx, or a pair of binoculars. I am like a sponge which absorbs every passing thing, making one oblivious to time and space. A traveler who slips into character, feelings and moments and pours them into words, images or sounds. This is what I want to share with you. 

 

 

 

The path

 

I started singing  at the age of 14 with Sutrastore, a band combining triphop and pop. 

 

 

After this, I toured Belgium and The Netherlands with Tomigun, supporting Balthazar and Amatorksi. Our record was released in Germany and Switzerland. We also toured as support act for Daniel Johnston. 

 

 

 

 

Two years ago I had the chance to sing with my sister, Geike Arnaert (formerly of Hooverphonic) and I learned a great deal !

ARTIST IN RESIDENCE

At the moment I'm working in my live performances and my first solo album. AB supports artists with financial advice, recording time and rehearsal space. These are all keys to a more professional way of working. I already performed as a support act for Sebastien Tellier and will be playing in a Brussels based club, The Botanique. Let's meet overthere.

It'$ all about the $

 

AB gives a professional structure and form to my work. However, I still need some money to record a 12-song album. With your support I would be able to pay musicians and a producer. I'm also looking for funds to master the album, for artwork and for 'pressing' the album. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Why fund it?

 

Studio Rent: normal cost is 10 days x 500 Euros = 5000 Euros. That is a lot of money. As i am Artist in residence at the ancienne Belgique, I can record in their studio for free.

BUT I need more than a studio to be able to Record my first Album and it all costs money.

 

3 musicians: 3 x 10 days x 100 = 3000 euro Producer(mixing and recording): 10 days x 300 euros = 3000 euros Mastering: 500 Graphic design: 500 Printing of CD: 450 euros Subtotal: 7450 euro Kiss kiss banking banking (8%): 596 euros   = 8046 euro

Dear people, The last mixes are as good as finished! Now a small group of close people ( muscians) are listening and than the album will go for the master. The Album will come out as NOMAN. That is now the name my Band is carrying now. Drums, percussion and soudscapes are created by Matthijs Vanderleen ( Tommigun, Marblesound) and Synths and piano By David Thomaere (Davidthomaere Trio, Billie). You can see some pictures in the studio on our facebook page NOMAN, take a look. It has been long journey but assure you it was worth it . We took a bit of time to find the right person ( Steven Van Gelder @ Great Oak studio) to record and mix our album. But now we are really very happy with the result and i hope you will be too. We hope to get out the first song by november and release the album in the beginning of 2017. But of course You will be the first one's to hear the songs. I do trully aplogize for the waiting!! I will reward your trust in me and my songs soon with the coming of the album and with that the concerts and artwork... Also I have to say that In between the rush of time i became a mother of twins Moon and Lio. Two lovely boy's who are two months now but being pregnant and being a mother took quiet a lot of my time. But now almost everything is set. Soon you will have a new update. All my love to You Warm Greetings Kaat
