Virlyn aka Frédéric Vanderlynden is a sound artist from Belgium, whose music was ignited at an early age. As soon as he was able, he started recording his favourite tracks off the Belgian radio and making mix tapes using an old-time mixer he acquired for a small price.
In his early twenties he went to university and got a degree in history and in film and visual culture. This did not only keep him interested in cinema but also sparked his interest in atmospheric music and sound design; a genre and direction of music making he’s still exploring. Since then his music is evolving into an organic symbiosis of classical instruments and an electronic transformation of field recordings. He also got intrigued by the use and alteration of recorded vocals and spoken word.
The outcome is a highly conceptual music with detailed and sensitive ambient stories.
