2020 Shipwrecked Waltzhop, an electronic music release with Bert Jacobs

"AP and Bert are shipwrecked on a small deserted island, somewhere near Bermuda.
The only communication they have is via radio.
While being stranded they decide to make a pop-song while waiting in isolation.

The rescue boat doesn't seem to pass by any time soon."

2019 Heartbroken Uncle5, electronic music and performance with Bert Jacobs, Night Shift: from dusk till dawn, De Studio, Antwerp Belgium

After his nocturnal walk for last year's Night Shift in Brussels, sculptor and storyteller Bert Jacobs now joins forces with the Helsinki-based audio-visual artist Ari-Pekka Leinonen. With their brand-new performance, they wildly speculate on the quaint events that have led to The Beatles' break-up and hatred between the legendary song writing duo Lennon-McCartney. Heartbroken Uncles 5 Karaoke Band explores themes floating between toxic egoism, stardom, success and failure. Expect a not-so-average musical farce with harmonious looks and sabotaging intentions.
