- Dirk Serries – Electric guitar , sound processing, amps.
For more than 30 years the Belgian guitarist and composer Dirk Serries has developed a unique signature sound as the result of the deep exploration into genres such as drone, ambient, dark ambient, industrial, shoegaze, noise and recently free jazz.
From the 80’s he released several albums under the pseudonym Vidna Obmana until 2007, the year in which he decided to close that chapter to continue evolving his sound iwth numerous projects and collaborations.
His solo works are inspired by the process of introspection that reflects abstract sound compositions formed by sustained droning layers, walls of sound and texture saturation using electric guitar as the main source for eroding the sound waves by various analog electronic devices and types of amplification.
Serries creates almost cinematic ambient soundscapes that have the power to carry us to indomitable abstract planes.
Dirk Serries is the name behind projects such as Fears Falls Burning, Continuum and Microphonics. Along his career, Serries has worked with artists such as: Asmus Tietchens, Steve Roach, Justin K. Broadrik (Godflesh, Jesu), Aidan Baker, Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree), Steve Noble, John Dikeman, Collin Webster, among others and toured with bands such as My Bloody Valentine, Mono (Jap), Low, Jesu among others.
