Singer and musician
Biography

Ozark Henry has left his mark on the Belgian music scene since the mid-‘90s as a singer, songwriter, composer and producer. His early, mostly avant-garde electronic work quickly earned him the support of artists like David Bowie, Trent Reznor, Jah Wobble and Zazie. He toured as the supporting act for Moby and Garbage and the acclaimed French music magazine Les Inrocks labelled him ‘le jeune Bowie Flamand’.

Since then, he has released seven platinum studio albums and three soundtracks, cutting out a unique musical path. Always looking for new ways to translate sensory, emotional experiences through to his music, he blends heritage with technology, craft with experiment, audio with visual.

In 2014, he toured Europe with The Journey Is Everything, a groundbreaking live setup placing his band within a series of projected visuals, using moving screens to create the illusion of a three dimensional universe.

In 2015, he has embarked on his most ambitious project to date: Paramount. Following an invitation by the National Orchestra of Belgium to pay tribute to his repertoire in a series of concerts, Henry decided to record an album with the 90 piece orchestra in stereo, 5.1 surround sound and 9.1 Auro 3D immersive sound, placing the audience in the creator’s place. This makes him one of the first artists in the world to embrace 3D audio technology. He was invited to present the project at the Audio Engineering Society of America’s yearly conference in New York and he was the first Belgian ever to give a 'Talk @ Google’, Google’s platform for groundbreaking ideas in art, science and technology. In their New York headquarters, Henry presented is vision on the artistic possibilities opening up with three dimensional sound production. 

On October 21st 2015, Ozark Henry was crowned as United Nations Goodwill Ambassador against human trafficking. Since then, he has been working together with the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) and local NGO’s to raise awareness about this modern day form of slavery and reach out to significant audiences both nationwide and abroad. His performances at the Morgan Library in New York and the concert with the National Orchestra of Belgium at the Lotto Arena were dedicated to the Blue Heart Campaign and the Trust Fund for Victims of Human Trafficking. Currently, he is working on a 3D sound installation for the United Nations.

Ozark Henry
Ozark Henry portrait

Since David Bowie praised Ozark Henry’s debut album as one of his favourites of 1996, the Belgian artist and United Nations Goodwill Ambassador has produced music ranging from avant-garde electronica to pop and, most recently, a symphonic album with the National Orchestra of Belgium. Henry’s universe is defined by a blending of craft with experiment, audio with visual and heritage with technology. TEDx and Google New York invited him to talk about his recent ground-breaking work in 3D sound. 

You & Krug Champagne?

La Maison Krug works towards excellence in taste for every bottle they release. They honour their heritage and value their customer, so each Krug experience is an emotional one. This is exactly how I approach my music. Each song, each album has to translate a story into a sensory experience. I feel connected to the Krug team. I identify with the way they start with a blank page for each cuvée and dare to reinvent champagne, sometimes making radical decisions and always raising the bar of what champagne can be, what it can mean in a person’s life. 

When is your ideal Krug moment?

Any moment that is worth sharing. I live close by the sea, so a lot of friends come over during summer. The best times are when when we get together at sunset, stay outside until late and just enjoy each other’s company. Nothing better to celebrate those moments than with a glass of Krug. 

Any favorite Krug Champagne?

My favourite is Krug Rosé, the most daring, non-conformist of Krug Champagnes. It was a complete surprise to me that a Rosé could ever equal the richness and complexity of a red wine. 

 

Can you explain the music pairing you have chosen for each Krug Champagne and why?

Krug Grande Cuvée,

Krug Grand Cuvée is La Maison's symphonic masterpiece. It offers the taste equivalent of a 120 piece orchestra. That’s why I chose to pair it with Tchaikovsky's 6th symphony in B Minor, which also uses the whole range of colours and nuances of the orchestra. 

Krug Rosé

Musically the Krug Rosé makes me think of Bella Bartok’s 2d violin concerto, a very demanding, virtuoso piece. Full and opulent, just like Krug Rosé. 

Krug 2002

The Krug 2002 is an ode to nature. Generous but elegant, rich but delicate. When Maison Krug asked me to pair it with on of my own songs, I chose the symphonic version of “This Is All I Have”, the opening track of my album ‘Paramount’, which was recorded with the National Orchestra of Belgium. All 90 musicians have their moment in the piece, but it’s still very understated. The instruments sound like flowers in spring, just about to bloom.  

Krug 2003

Krug 2003 has the same vivacity, tension and freshness that I hear in Saint-Saëns’s amazing piece "Danse Macabre". A great composition of different colors and layers, finding a unique balance. 

Krug Clos du Mesnil

For the Clos du Mesnil, I chose the Prelude of the Bach Suite: fresh and pure but loaded with history. A glass of this cuvée is perfect at noon, to add a spark to your day. 

Krug Clos d’Ambonnay

This is the rarest of Krug champagnes. There’s an exciting sense of expectation in its pallet. It’s the same feeling I experienced when recording “Love Is Free To Interfere” with the National Orchestra. There’s a longing for the magic just about to happen.
