Boomkat Product Review:
There’s something up with stroom, we tell u, and we're not at all sure how to feel about it. A lot of the records on the label - not all of them - but a lot of them - sound like some forgotten pearl we were once really into and which we've since completely forgotten about, like a recurring dream that no longer registers in the mind as fantasy. This record is completely that. A foggy earworm. A relic, a memento. 2 perfectly weird and beautifully smudged pop memories that we’re not 100% sure actually exist, even now as we sit here listening to them.
"As a young woman Sacha Vingerhoeds was part of a vibrant creative community in Rotterdam that organized itself under the name of ARTS. There was a primitively created studio situated in the basement of the building where spontaneous recording sessions took place.
Since the house functioned as a communal space, sometimes travelers and unexpected visitors (both from Holland and abroad) passed by and contributed for a shorter or longer period to the creative output of the community. Within this context a highly intimate cassette was recorded by Sacha and friends that combined the elements of improvisation, a free creative spirit and inner spirituality. The title "Eeuwig Op Reis" is hard to translate perfectly but means something like "Endlessly In Transit" or "Perpetual Travel", in the sense of being on an endless journey or travel. No more than 10 copies of the cassette were made and given to loved ones and family in 1983."
