Kaat Arnaert

<p> <u><strong>Who the f* is ...?</strong></u></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> 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. </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="_mg_0775_low-1415376713" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/135761/_MG_0775_low-1415376713.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> 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. </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <u><strong>The path</strong></u></p> <p>  </p> <p> I started singing  at the age of 14 with Sutrastore, a band combining triphop and pop. </p> <p>  </p> <p> <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="304" src="//cdn.embedly.com/widgets/media.html?src=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fembed%2Fd5K3Fmksqls%3Fwmode%3Dopaque%26feature%3Doembed&amp;wmode=opaque&amp;url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3Dd5K3Fmksqls&amp;image=http%3A%2F%2Fi.ytimg.com%2Fvi%2Fd5K3Fmksqls%2Fhqdefault.jpg&amp;key=ff2702755d9749cda571c6d6c2f3eb46&amp;type=text%2Fhtml&amp;schema=youtube" width="540"></iframe></p> <p>  </p> <p> 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. </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="304" src="//cdn.embedly.com/widgets/media.html?src=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fembed%2F9v0FhTh6NWA%3Fwmode%3Dopaque%26feature%3Doembed&amp;wmode=opaque&amp;url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3D9v0FhTh6NWA&amp;image=http%3A%2F%2Fi.ytimg.com%2Fvi%2F9v0FhTh6NWA%2Fhqdefault.jpg&amp;key=ff2702755d9749cda571c6d6c2f3eb46&amp;type=text%2Fhtml&amp;schema=youtube" width="540"></iframe></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> Two years ago I had the chance to sing with my sister, Geike Arnaert (formerly of Hooverphonic) and I learned a great deal ! </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="677725-1-1415371519" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/135699/677725-1-1415371519.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong><u>ARTIST IN RESIDENCE </u></strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Foto_1-1417609149" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/143486/foto_1-1417609149.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> 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.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="967824_10205025697705418_2115294838_n-1415371905" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/135704/967824_10205025697705418_2115294838_n-1415371905.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <u><strong>It'$ all about the $</strong></u></p> <p>  </p> <p> 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. </p> <p>  </p> <p> <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="304" src="//cdn.embedly.com/widgets/media.html?src=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fembed%2FiR8JwIS6E0o%3Fwmode%3Dopaque%26feature%3Doembed&amp;wmode=opaque&amp;url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DiR8JwIS6E0o&amp;image=http%3A%2F%2Fi.ytimg.com%2Fvi%2FiR8JwIS6E0o%2Fhqdefault.jpg&amp;key=ff2702755d9749cda571c6d6c2f3eb46&amp;type=text%2Fhtml&amp;schema=youtube" width="540"></iframe></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p>
