A Singel edit from "When The City Sleeps", an extravaganza in nearly 3.15 minutes exploring outside the narrow margin,
is released this week as an iTunes download.
Taking off with a flamenco flavour, moving into a rap inspired section to conclude with a steaming Jazz-rock sax
solo by Paul van Laere.
When the city sleeps I have a bad, bad dream
that tears me down this dreadful scene,
anger, anguish, revolution, frozen faces, media polution,
fundamentalist terror, another religious error...

This Silence Within
Following the recent death of his father, Gerd Willekens composed the poignant "This Silence Within" as a tribute. The song played at
he funeral left a deep impression on many of the attendees. "This Silence Within" is now available
through iTunes, as part of the "Fight Against Cancer" campaign.
All proceeds from the iTunes sales will be fully transferred to the Flemish Cancer League. In this way Gerd hopes to
contribute with his musical project "Wallpaper Poets" to the research on the disease that killed his dad.
The official identification number of Wallpaper Poets as official participant in the campaign is 110-237-728.
