Belgium label STROOM.tv are releasing a two-track limited edition 7 inch by Dutch artist Sacha Vingerhoeds.
In 1983 under the guise of Saskia she was involved in an experimental music collective in Holland named ‘Arts’. They self-released a home-taped cassette called Eeuwig Op Reis which featured twelve tracks of her dreamy musing soundtracked by delicate lo-fi ambient music, and experimental synth sounds.
The loose collective lived together in a communal house in Rotterdam, where they created a makeshift studio situated in the basement of the building where spontaneous recording sessions took place. The collective involved Saskia, Coen de Neef, Fred Flerst, John Zandijk, Andre de Vries, and Cora Emens as well as travellers and unexpected visitors (both from Holland and abroad) who passed by and contributed to the creative output of the community.
The title ‘Eeuwig Op Reis’ loosley translates to ‘Endlessly In Transit’ or ‘Perpetual Travel’, in the sense of being on an endless journey or travel.
Eeuwig Op Reis will follow the label’s release of a collection of works by Hessel Veldman, a key figure in the Dutch home-taping scene, titled Eigen Boezem later this month.
Head here to pre-order a copy in advance of Eeuwig Op Reis’ 22nd June release, check out the artwork and tracklisting below.
