Dirk Serries’ Microphonics XXVI-XXX; Resolution Heart

tflp172xTopping an album that received applause from press and fans alike, and was considered a personal achievement by the artist isn’t easy. Nearly three years went by before Dirk Serries found himself back into the realm of his self created Microphonics. The intense involvement in free jazz and the improve scene (with his curated A New Wave Of Jazz label and artists like Yodok III and Kodian Trio) and the completely different way of working dragged him into the third studio album. Testing and trying the dynamics of inviting guest musicians, working his way through different themes and paths in a live setting where the steps needed to make that (final) chapter in the story that is Microphonics.
“Microphonics XXVI-XXX : Resolution Heart” is a breathtaking farewell to a remarkable series of releases (studio and live) for Tonefloat Records. An album that captures the essence of his music. Harmonic, emotionally charged, dynamic and minimal at the same time. A statement that once again explores the versatility of Dirk Serries as a composer and musician, and at the same time acts as an answer as to why he has been (for over three decades) yet still maintains a key factor in a genre that has been labelled and perceived incorrectly more than often. “Microphonics XXVI-XXX : Resolution Heart” has Serries’ signature all over and will in more than one way meet expectations.
“Microphonics XXVI-XXX : Resolution Heart” will be out 18 November 2016 on vinyl as a regular 180 grams audiophile LP, plus a limited edition of 50 numbered copies in a box with an exclusive t-shirt and concert poster. A digital edition will also become be available on the release date itself. The day after the release will see Dirk Serries officially present the album with a one-off release show at the beautiful De Singer, in Rijkevorsel. During that night the LP and the special edition box will be available at a (slightly) reduced price.
