Different Fountains began as a side project based in Brussels, where Michael Langeder (AT) and Bernardo Risquez (VEN) rented an abandoned industrial building which they use as a recording and performing cruise ship. They first met in Caracas, Venezuela in 2006 where they both studied at the Faculty for Architecture and Urban Design. Their mutual interest for architecture and sound is intertwined in their artistic practice. In 2010 they released their first EP as a limited CD-R edition and coined the terms ‘soulcore junkpop’ to describe their sound. Coherence in diversity – they made a point of having each piece sound as different as possible. For their live performances they often experiment with unconventional setups using body projections, dancers or nothing at all. “Almost everything” was the proclaimed title of their 2011 live shows featuring occasional dance appearances of Siet Raeymaekers as Madame May. “The Absolute End” is the second release on Different Fountains Editions followed by a 7″ single in early 2012. Their debut album ‘Shrimp That Sleeps’ was released in collaboration with the meakusma imprint in late 2014 preceded by a series of bespoke EP’s on their DFE label including remixes by Karen Gwyer, Madteo, Bepotel and Sagat.
