“A different art form through the instruments” … Surface was performed en recorded by Gin Devo between 1988 & 1989. The tracks on the album served as endless loops at the 1988 & 1989 Antwerp art and performance exhibitions “Fabrik 88” & “Metro 89”. Several artist used the Surface tracks to support there visual works at the old ice factory’s abandoned rooms, or in the concrete tunnels of Antwerp’s never used metro network. The music project intends to describe the feelings, status and frame of mind. Oppression, effort, boredom and dark mood are translated in a different art form through the instruments.
