Here’s a throwback to an interview with NME Magazine.

Just released: ‘Moment Of Being’, the short music film for The Visual’s album title track. It was edited, directed and produced by lead vocalist Anna van Rij. Starring Renzo Popolizio of Nationale Opera & Ballet, and mime student at Academie voor Theater en Dans Kaja van Bruggen.
‘It’s an ode to the human touch. The physical and emotional experience of being touched. Sense is what makes us feel alive. To be touched, to be-loved and to be alive.’
‘Moments of Being’ the album is available on 12” vinyl, CD (in our webshop), and digitally.
Something different out on Mink today: a collection of tracks by classical musician and sound healing expert Eline van Esch (who is also a solo flute player in The Hague Philharmonic Orchestra), specifically created for meditation, relaxation, sound healing, yoga, sleep, being in stillness… anything that involves winding down.
The album is available on streaming services, and on CD in our webshop.
We are very happy to support this project and thank Doris Veldman for recording and mixing. Artwork by Michiel & Marieke.
