Ozark Henry talks here about his personal music canvas
Ozark Henry has left his mark on the Belgian music scene since the mid-’90s as a singer, songwriter, composer and producer. His early, mostly avant-garde electronic work quickly earned him the support of artists like David Bowie, Trent Reznor, Jah Wobble and Zazie. He toured as the supporting act for Moby and Garbage and the acclaimed French music magazine Les Inrocks labelled him ‘le jeune Bowie Flamand’.
Since then, he has released seven platinum studio albums and three soundtracks, cutting out a unique musical path. Always looking for new ways to translate sensory, emotional experiences through to his music, he blends heritage with technology, craft with experiment, audio with visual.

Ironically, the audio of his TED talk was compressed.05/11/2015
Inspiring talk on how we as a culture can follow a path of 'progress' but then stop asking questions about what else is possible. In this case we have been excited about the idea of thousands of songs on an MP3 Player, but in the process have destroyed the immersive listening experience due to compression of music files. But with the explosion of broadband and music streaming, compression and the resulting deterioration of quality is no longer required. So why doesn't the industry give the artist their musical canvas back, and why as consumers do we not opt for quality - for tuna steak?16/06/2015
