Wander are Freek Kinkelaar and Frans de Waard, also known as Beequeen. Since changing Beequeen’s musical direction in the summer of 2000 (drones out and ‘popmusic’ in). However, since they both love drone music, they founded Wander in 2001. In Wander they explore drone music in it’s widest possible form, with each new release exploring a specific concept. Wander will release their music on various formats, but every format only once. Each release is called Wander, and there is a total absence of any information on the cover. The material was recorded in the analogue studio Geluidswerkplaats Extrapool in late 2004 and early 2005, using a wide variety of vintage synthesizers (Juno 60, Korg MS20, Roland SH 102 and Arp synthesizer) and a Philicordia organ. The four long pieces breath an atmospheric, pastoral sound of slow and deep evolving drones. The CD was mastered by Raymond Steeg of The Legendary Pink Dots’ fame. The images on the cover and the disc were made with the help of Elise de Waard. Released in a special cardboard package with varnished images. Strictly limited edition of 600 copies only.
