“Boundaries are broken further by the Popul Vuh-like, Belgian outfit Illuminine whose hypnotic album #1 was mixed in Iceland by Birgir Jón Birgisson at Sigur Rós’s Sundlaugin studio. Sigur Rós fans, take note – especially of “Llyr”, the album’s second track, which
shares its impressionism with that of second-album Sigur Rós, who Birgisson has produced.”
- Kieron Tyler, The Guardian, Mojo
“The mood he sets is vulnerable and beautiful, so easy to get lost in.”
- Disco Naïveté
Illuminine is a musical project helmed by Flemish composer Kevin Imbrechts. He has released 3 studio albums, 3 rework albums and various singles.
Illuminine's music is a seamless blend of neo-classical music with post rock and ambient influences. “Every composition is linked to a specific moment in my life, often with major significance. But it’s not important that people know what inspired the music. Everyone can and should project their own ideas and feelings onto the music. Based on the reactions I get, I have the impression that’s successful. Instrumental music is more powerful than vocal music with clear lyrics; it’s much more telling.”
