Transtilla is Anne-Chris Bakker and Romke Kleefstra. Since 2008 they have been working together in the trio Kleefstra|Bakker|Kleefstra (KBK), that made eight releases so far. Both are also part of the group Tsjinlûd. Anne-Chris Bakker also made solo-albums and collaborates with ambient musician Andrew Heath. Romke Kleefstra is also part of groups like Piiptsjilling and The Alvaret Ensemble. With KBK they played throughout Europe and Japan. Live KBK sometimes turned noisy and harsh, a side of Bakker’s and Kleefstra’s music they both wanted to explore. This resulted in Transtilla, compared to KBK a bit more expressive and experimental, but still dark and with this constant underlying tension. With ‘Transtilla I’ Bakker and Kleefstra make their debut on Opa Loka Records.
