The Belgians Jonathan Vandenbroeck is probably better known by his stage name Milow. He has long become a synonym for a charismatic voice, irresistible melodies and imaginative arrangements. Hardly anyone is experiencing so often must on concert stages as Milow, a guarantee for gold and platinum awards. His shows are so intense that the audience even days later is under the spell of fascination.
Not by chance has Milow After two studio albums its first live album "Maybe Next Year" presented. With "From North To South Live" is now already the next recorded live panel at the start. FOr two live albums need other artist of 40 years. "I just like my songs to sing live," says Milow, "pure can not be, and the reactions of the audience not just the soul of the songs. That's why I love them to banish even live on CD."
This love to live in their own world is experiencing Milow to search. "My main plates in my closet are live albums," he recalls. "My Bands have discovered through them. Neil Young about or Bruce Springsteen. Which I have only really understood when I could hear his live albums."
These auditory experiences are there for Milow so strongly that he turns off his artistic work on it. No song has to be taken a chance on a plate, if it has not been subjected to line and thread a live test. "Hardly, I wrote a piece, it wants to get out to the stage, it wants the unique atmosphere, the impressions, feelings and emotions felt," he says. "You can do so much from the reaction of the audience to learn. Then I arrange it to the end and then take it on."
This type of writing is fOr Milow no pandering to the audience or a search for potential hit numbers. He wants to have a dialogue. A, which takes place simultaneously with the play and the audience. One who only breathes the songs of real life, which they grow leaves and gives them exactly what makes a piece of really big: soul depth.
So had Milow can record from October to December 2011 About 50 of these communicative events and then laid aside first. "I wanted to immediately deal with the material," can Milow announced. "I needed some distance and was then overpowered what I heard there. I had to select real trouble, my favorite tracks. The audience clapped, sang and raved of his lungs. They were almost like an additional musician."
And that's saying something; since its powerful long ribbon flowers at every passionate interplay on `s New formally. Thus, on the new album then logically also Milow, his band, but also clamoring to hear the audience. "I hate those live albums that are so clean and pure that the audience is not listening to even begin. For me the audience has the largest share of the concert and is therefore to listen carefully to this extent on the CD."
Who is so much on tour, who has to work on his pieces in this period. "Time for this is always, before the sound check, then, at the hotel, after the show," says Milow, "So much time has to be;.. Because a piece can knock at any time and at that magic moment, I have to be prepared That is why I always have my mobile phone at hand, the melody trÄllere in Zweifelsfallt into the phone and have them as safe."
After each Torunee drags Milow a well-stocked archive of text and melody scraps to take home. FOR further work on his songs, he has a very simple concept. "A song is always a story to tell, and must never be boring," says Milow. "It takes a strong, rousing introduction, a still-increasing middle part, and an element of surprise conclusion."
In the of Milow called magical moments, the muse has kissed him full, because for all his treasures song is that he does not look for the good ideas - he has taken only the best. He makes no compromises. Therefore, his pieces are not, somehow okay '. No, they have style. And they do not just class, they are a class apart. This has established a special background and is in the hybrid generation, Milow belongs.
"In the 1980s, was born and grew the 1990s I know both the fascination of classic album with its tension, such as Radiohead, OK Computer ', but also the Playlistifikation through online portals such as Napster and Kazaa, which isolated the single piece the focus moved "looks Milow far behind. "There belibt course not mean that I want to make albums that take account of both. I want to give people pieces for your playlists and simultaneously create a tension for an entire album."
So be of Milow poured fashioned and future in a song and brought strong images running. Poetic subtleties are exploring the path of the heart. A gifted entertainer and storyteller can only be the stage his home. Milows grandiose sound is already in itself convincing. But when he considered early in a bonus DVD enclosed documentation the images, can be a treasure trove of touching and moving images Opens. Personal as it gets. Plunging not.
The film shows that Milow never want to swim to the ground, he wants to do something special. create a new world. And to make it! Fundamental to this, his special ability, this is to ensure that the atmosphere around him is always contagious good. But just as successful concert highlights how Milow it delivers in series now since the early 2000s. And so the new plate "From North To South Live" A conclusive must!
The songs and the images of documentary evidence of a passion, a dream that becomes more and more a reality.
