We first crossed paths when we invited her to take part in our first residency at KAVIR. She arrived from Vienna with a synthesizer she could barely carry by herself. A few hours later we are in my parents’ kitchen in Ghent, joining forces to make the best lentil rice we possibly could. We combine our mothers’ recipes and before we know it, the gate to shamelessly telling our family secrets has been opened. During her five day stay, Rojin worked with Épong as they put together a live show, while Jonathan, Pieter-Jan, Dietger, and I prepared the visuals for the event. After long days of working we ate, drank, and went for walks together in Ghent.
