‘What Lies In The Sea’ is the fruit of a ten year
collaboration between singer Lynn Cassiers and
keyboardist Jozef Dumoulin, and is the first release
for their duo Lilly Joel. Both musicians are free
spirits and true, much-lauded innovators in their
a mix between Obscure Records and Birmingham sound
Belgian singer Lynn Cassiers is as much a singer as she can be called
a sound sculptor, using her voice, microphone, and electronics to create
Pianist Jozef Dumoulin (Belgium) redefined the Fender Rhodes
keyboard through a scope that is at the same time fully contemporary,
eclectic and highly personal.

This recording marks a milestone on their path as a band and crystalizes
a moment in a universe that was carefully shaped and daringly explored.
The music is straightforward, fresh and original – the focus never being
the attempt to be part of some distinct genre, but only to be honest
towards one’s own place in a ever changing world.
There are reminiscences of experimental music, jazz, rock, electro, pop,
traditional music and contemporary classical music, which is totally
normal considered who’s at work here. Anyhow, all those influences
are fully digested and serve as countless small bricks that are used
to make a new big image, that stands on it own and can be watched
Jozef Dumoulin is known for his open and luminous approach to
the piano and to music in general, always anchored in tradition without
being burdened by it. Besides the Fender Rhodes solo, his own projects
include The Red Hill Orchestra (a trio with Ellery Eskelin and Dan Weiss)
and a duo with Benoît Delbecq.
Highly-demanded as a sideman, Jozef Dumoulin has recorded and toured
with the finest of musicians in the domain of jazz, improvised music,
rock and traditional music. He currently lives in Paris.
Quoted to be ‘one of the most remarkable voices of our improvisation
scene’ (enola), Lynn Cassiers‘ universe is one that covers a wide
diversity of styles. Lynn is recognizable by her songlike approach in
contexts that can range from noise over ambient to free jazz. She’s
part of impro-rock band Tape Cuts Tape on the sides of ex-deus guitarist
Rudy Trouvé and improv-jazz drummer Eric Thielemans, and also
performs with her solo project ‘The Bird, the Fis and the Ball’. Besides
writing music for theatre and her various collaborations with great
artists and ensembles such as Marshall Allen, Octurn and The Brussels
Jazz Orchestra, she is a steady member in different bands on the actual
music scene of Western Europe.
