VENTILATEUR

A SOUNDTRACK FOR HAPPINESS

MENTAL-27

12 FEBRUARY 2021

In the summer of 2020, VENTILATEUR joined forces with theater-collective Camping Sunset. They wrote a live soundtrack to the theater play 'Happiness', based on the film of the same name by Todd Solonds from 1998. To create the music, the band worked closely with the collective to create a soundtrack that became an inherent part of the piece in the short time of two weeks. Immediately after this intense production period, 'Happiness' was performed for three consecutive weeks in De Wasserij in Ghent, musically supported by the trio.

In October 2020, the complete soundtrack was recorded at Het Entrepot in Bruges, resulting in 'A Soundtrack For Happiness'. The title refers to the variable nature of the music, as it was performed differently each night and, like the piece, grew through the performances.
