Live EP for Record Store Day from Bert Dockx' Ottla

Posted on 22 Apr 2022

No need to convince followers of this page of the versatility and prolificness of Bert Dockx. For Record Store Day 2022, we got the chance to do a onetime vinyl pressing of this musical theatre project he did with Josse De Pauw in 2021. Bert was asked to create a soundtrack for Josse’s monologue ‘Kroniek van het Vuur’, a translation of a work by Uruguayan writer Eduardo Galeano. Bert invited two friends from his jazz band Ottla (Thomas Jillings and Louis Evrard) and a fourth musician (bass player Axel Gilain). Together they played a series of scorching live shows. Two cuts from those live recordings are now on this exclusive 12” single, limited to 400 copies. One pressing only!
