Talismann reveals new album in collaboration with music ensemble Slagwerk Den Haag & visual artist Heleen Blanken.



This is too much! i mean it. I just discover Slagmann, a new collaboration between producer Talismann and music ensemble Slagwerk Den Haag. Definitely I had to investigate them and then i ended up following them with no doubt. I'm really excited because I think it's a spectacular collaboration, creators of maximum quality sound, a work of pure art.

Slagmann basically can be resumed as an initiative that arose from a shared curiosity for innovative sounds. The outcome is an adventurous synthesis of hypnotizing rhythm patterns, organic soundscapes and captivating scenography – or, as the artists themselves like to call it, a “ritualistic experience.” All of this created by three musicians and their remarkable collection of percussive instruments the aim is to take the crowd along on a collective experience.


The good news is that Slagmann has announced the release of their new album KRYSALIS, the release date is due to April 29, 2019 in Digital version and Vinyl. Slagmann worked on this genre-crossing album. Talismann produced the album exploring the analog set of instruments from Slagwerk Den Haag as a soundbank. Everything fit itself and the result was outstanding, stay tuned.

Watch one minute of the magic live interpretation of their new album KRYSALIS,  where Slagmann join forces with visual artist Heleen Blanken. AMAZING!


Overview. Slagmann, a new collaboration between producer Talismann and music ensemble Slagwerk Den Haag. For this live interpretation of their new album KRYSALIS, they join forces with visual artist Heleen Blanken. The outcome is an adventurous synthesis of hypnotizing rhythm patterns, organic soundscapes and captivating scenography – or, as the artists themselves like to call it, a “ritualistic experience.”


Slagmann is an initiative that arose from a shared curiosity for innovative sounds. Slagmann worked on this genre-crossing album. Talismann produced the album exploring the analogue set of instruments from Slagwerk Den Haag as a soundbank. Sometimes dreamy and dark, euphoric and explosive at other times, this mesmerizing cross-pollination between ritualistic percussion and drum machines will lure you into the murkiest depths of electronica and classical minimal music. The album has fourteen phases and will be released on Talismann Records.

For the visual identity of KRYSALIS and the scenography of the live show, Slagmann works together with visual artist Heleen Blanken. Fascinated by the perfection of nature, she has created a show where the chrysalis (the pop in which a caterpillar turns into a butterfly) becomes a symbol for transformation.

Blanken not only uses video images for her rhythmical light show, she also makes use of a hanging sculpture and NAP framework software that was especially designed for KRYSALIS. Together with the three musicians and their remarkable collection of percussive instruments the aim is to take the crowd along on a collective experience.
