Live Video Session : our second EP live

This fundraiser aims to highlight the second EP of our band van den Bear Somewhere the trains are on time released at the end of March 2020 by giving it a second life in the form of a filmed live session.

Between March and December 2019, van den Bear produced, thanks to a crowdfunding 200% succesfull, their second EP Somewhere the trains are on time. This was followed by a promotional campaign - including the release of a video clip, planned concerts, press reviews (Luminous Dash) - for a planned release, with distributor Freaksville Records, for March 26, 2020.

A week before the release of the EP, general lockdown was declared in Belgium.

Despite the participation in various events set up online by the cultural sector, the release of the EP was (like the entire cultural sector) dramatically impacted by the pandemic and went almost unnoticed.

Our goal now is to organize a live session, during which the band will play the entire EP, which will be recorded and filmed by a team of professionals (video technicians and sound engineers), in a private space transformed into a recording studio. In order to give a second chance to the songs released in March 2020, this session will be broadcast as a video performance and a "new" EP in its own right.

Acting as the closest thing to a concert in the current situation, the session will give a new flavour to the songs, by reinventing them in part. The release of a new EP containing the same titles as the one released during the confinement - this time increased by a video - would be planned one year later.

It will be a second chance for a missed opportunity.

The result will be a new object, but nevertheless a witness of what stopped in March 2020.

Finally, the objective is also to support actors of the cultural world in Belgium, both technicians and artists, by carrying out an ambitious project, with a budget that will allow the various participants to be remunerated at their fair value in a year in which they have all been struck by - at times - the total halt of the cultural sector.
