‘Illuminine’: The Emissary of Melancholy

We are thrilled to welcome a remarkable talent to our artist collective – Kevin Imbrechts, widely recognised as ‘Illuminine’. A figurehead of minimalist music in Belgium, Kevin embodies an extraordinary blend of calm and creativity amidst a world of chaos. His music, characterised by its introspective melancholy, resonates deeply with the ethos of Alba Amicorum.


In 2015, Illuminine made a profound impact with the debut of ‘#1’, crafted in collaboration with Birgir Jón Birgisson, Sigur Rós’ sound engineer. This partnership marked the beginning of a journey that transcended geographical boundaries and musical genres. Kevin's artistry is reflected in his ability to travel without a linear path and to find peace and connection in the subtlest of sounds.

Kevin's influence extends beyond the realm of music. His compositions have underscored significant moments in television, film, and even video games. With over 50 million streams on Spotify, his reach is a testament to the universal appeal of his music. His collaborations with luminaries such as Adam Bryanbaum Wiltzie, Alex Somers, and many others highlight his versatility and depth as an artist.
