Ever since debuting the scene with Re:Source in 2015, Bart Desmet of BARST has been on a constant quest to bring his vision come to life. In order to transmit the brutal, and the subtle, the dirty, and the clean, the fierceness, and the calm, the consonant and the dissonant, BARST has been experimenting with a myriad of effects, loopers, synths, guitars and whatnot. In translating this to the stage, he has called on the help of a great number of skilled musicians. Slowly but steadily, BARST became the band to see live, because it was always and will always be a unique experience. Having fanned out from just a one-man orchestra to an ever changing collective of musicians, 2019 marks the year Bart will process all the experiences of the last couple of years, and return back to source. Packed with tons of experience and an intricately crafted backline, BARST has rethought his entire operation and reinvented himself once more.
