Starblind = Earthbound 

Starblind is an electronic band from Antwerp, led by the visionary artist Nigel Grey Dubois. With a bold and daring approach to music, Starblind blends elements of jazz and pop with an electronic sound that is both fresh and exciting.

Starblind=Earthbound was formed in 2019 when Nigel sought out musical collaborators for his artistic projects as a photographer. Together with PHD-researcher (conservatorium Antwerpen) Umut R Eldem and multi-instrumentalist Miro Svetlik, they created music inspired by Nigel’s photo series “Tainted Monolith”.

The combination of visual art and music is deeply ingrained in the DNA of the band, and their music is a reflection of this unique creative perspective. Starblind is currently working on a portfolio in preparation for several festival dates in the summer of 2023.

Their first two releases, “Monolith” and “Sequence 9”, are the result of the “Monolith Sessions” – a series of jams between 2021-2022 that brought together the band’s diverse musical talents. With their signature sound and their commitment to exploring the intersection of art and music, Starblind is a band to watch out for. Get ready to be swept away by their mesmerizing and innovative music!

Get ready to be transported into the world of contemporary music theory and gear with Starblind’s latest track, MONOLITH. Drawing inspiration from the renowned Hungarian-Austrian composer György Ligeti, whose work LUX AETERNA was famously used in Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, Starblind pays homage to Ligeti’s micropolyphony in this groundbreaking composition. The track has been expertly mastered in London on a STUDER J37 tape machine, providing an unmatched organic quality that perfectly complements the intricate musical structure. Get ready to be blown away by the meticulous attention to detail and innovative use of gear in MONOLITH by Starblind.
EQUENCE9 draws inspiration from the Latin American myth of the jaguar, a powerful creature revered for its strength and agility. In this track, Starblind explores the idea of a failed scientific experiment gone wrong in the depths of the jungle. The relentless pursuit of the jaguar is symbolized by the constant pulsing rhythm that drives the music forward. With its dark and ominous soundscapes, SEQUENCE9 transports listeners to a world where science fiction meets ancient legend, reminiscent of films like Predator.

With “Tear Sheet,” Starblind gives a playful nod to the world of fashion. The track was written for a documentary that will be released to the public at the end of 2023. Guitarist Jorrit Mertens is featured on the track, which was mixed and mastered by Frederik Strobbe.

“Tear Sheet” is a dynamic and catchy song that perfectly captures the mood and energy of the fashion industry. With its pulsing beats and electrifying guitar riffs, the track is a testament to Starblind’s unique sound and style. This is music that is meant to be experienced, whether on the dance floor or in the front row of a fashion show. So put on your best outfit, turn up the volume, and get ready to be swept away by Starblind’s infectious energy!
