GOOSE is forever pushing the boundaries of their own music. Ever since their formation they’ve incorporated aesthetics and design into various records, remixes and notorious live performances. The Guardian hailed the foursome as “an onstage powerhouse, successfully bridging the gap between electronic music and rock.” Anybody that’s been to a GOOSE live show knows that they’re rambunctious and raw experiences reminiscent of nightclub scenes. With GOOSE NONSTOP the band is now paying tribute to that rave culture.
GOOSE never shied away from a challenge. They collaborated with leading artists in different fields like Storm Thorgerson, Willy Vanderperre and Pierre Debusschere. They made a multimedia installation called DE/RECONSTRUCTION where GOOSE performed while being physically separated from each other. GOOSE also created its very own magazine. More recently they teamed up with Audi using the showpiece Audi R8 engine as a synthesizer during a live performance.
GOOSE is now putting their entire back catalogue to the test with their latest endeavour called GOOSE NONSTOP. GOOSE has always been a fine-tuned machine. Its gears meshing together with those of the audience at breakneck speed. Raf Simons calls GOOSE "new energy." GOOSE NONSTOP embraces that metaphor and distills the entirety of their career into a stage packed with synthesizers and drum computers, abandoning their trusted guitars and drum kits. Every song completely dismantled, reinvigorated and then patched together to form a continuous live set, resembling the narrative arc of a rave that lasts from dusk till dawn.
GOOSE NONSTOP is about combining the past and the future, and redefining the meaning of a live electronic band by remixing their own songs and riffs into an entire new reality, bringing back the rave to modern day clubs and festivals.
