Monolith

Real Name:
Eric van Wonterghem
Profile:
Monolith started as a soloproject in 1997, formed by the Belgian electronic music veteran and producer Eric Van Wonterghem (ex-Klinik and member of Sonar and Insekt). After the first release "Compressed form", an ambient_industrial soundscape, the next albums "Tribal globe” and “Labyrinth" are well recieved in the (independent)music magazines and Monolith starts performing live all over Europe, Canada and the USA, the result is the "Disco buddha" clubhit…
Monolith has just released its 5th album "15seconds" on Psycho Dynamics. On this release Monolith goes further with his experimental sound which is a mixture from industrial, ambient and ebm sounds created with the latest technologies and mixed with lots of outboard analog gear.
Repetitive loops, hypnotising electronic sequences and carrying rhythmics take you into a multi-coloured journey through electro and industrial landscapes while each time incorporating new exotic elements and using vocal samples and guest vocalists when relevant. Elaborated electronic music arrangements which speak to both body and mind! Between modern urban dance and cold minimal electro/industrial. The band also welcomes a new member aboard, namely Eric’s wife Hilde Ivens, yes the sister of Dirk Ivens, who adds live vocals as well as live video-mixing.
