Vincent Rooijers, known as DROELOE, unveils his avant-garde indie/electronic masterpiece, The Art of Change, marking his solo debut after parting ways with his artistic partner, Hein Hamers. This album embarks on a captivating journey through time and space, utilizing recorded voice memos as a profound ‘feedback loop,’ enabling DROELOE to engage in dialogues with his past and future selves. Snippets extracted from audio cassettes and journal entries serve as catalysts for personal growth, evoking emotions of resolution, motivation, gratitude, and fearlessness at different junctures in life. Accompanied by artist Funi’s stunning 360-degree animated ‘worlds,’ each track transforms into a place that both Rooijers and his devoted fans can revisit, making The Art of Change a mesmerizing sonic and visual experience.
This album is a collection of ideas that I find important within my own personal development. It is a journey to turn these ideas into songs and symbolic places, one that helps me to visit those ideas more often. I want to become a more active participant in my own growth, this album is a step in that direction.”
