MARIS x Haerens x Lootens found each other in their shared love of experimental music, improvisation and jazz. They discovered common ground in their artistic work, in their thinking, in their love for art and literature, and started a conversation that has not ceased.

Anger’s Family Tree is an immersive and intimate listening experience that combines Astrid Haerens' poetry with new music by Mariske Broeckmeyer (MARIS) and Jasmijn Lootens.
