Biography

Pierre Van Dormael (24 May 1952 - 3 September 2008) first made a name for himself as the guitarist with the famous James Baldwin Project (with Slide Hampton, David Linx, Deborah Brown, Diederik Wissels, Michel Hatzigeorgiou and Bob Stewart).

He co-founded the notorious Nasa Na Band, the precursor to Aka Moon and was a permanent member of the experimental jazz fusion band 'Octurn', with whom he recorded a few albums on our label. As a composer he famously composed soundtracks for his brother, the well-known film maker Jaco Van Dormael (Toto le Héros, Le Huitième Jour, Mr. Nobody).
