After studies in Ghent and New York City, guitarist Kobe Van Cauwenberghe is currently based in Brussels and pursuing a PhD in the arts at the Conservatory of Antwerp with a focus on the music of Anthony Braxton. His research resulted in the acclaimed solo album “Ghost Trance Solos” (ATD10, 2020) and the double LP “Ghost Trance Septet” (eNR105, 2022).
In the past years Kobe has played concerts all over the world, both as a soloist as in chamber music formation and large ensemble. As a soloist he released his first solo-album in 2015 (“Give my Regards to 116th Street”, Carrier Records). In 2017 he created the solo project “No [more] Pussyfooting” with live arrangements of music by Brian Eno and Robert Fripp, which he toured extensively. He is a founding-member of the electric guitar-quartet Zwerm, a regular collaborator with Ictus and, until 2021, a member of the Nadar Ensemble. As a freelance guitarist he performed with several groups and ensembles in France, UK and the US.
