On November 27, 2015 literary production company Wintertuin and record label Snowstar Records released broeder Dieleman's book and cd. This special edition is called Uut de bron. The book is a bundle of all broeder Dieleman's texts, including those that appear on the new, eponymous album. The album contains songs, field recordings and instrumental passages that follow up and complement each other. An hour of new music, conversations and soundscapes from broeder Dieleman's Zeelandic Flanderes.
Zeelandic Flanders is a region full of stories. They're present in the landscape and the faces of people. They wander around in pubs, at the dinner table and through the stove. That is why the protagonists on the new album of broeder Dieleman come across a soundscape of rustling poplars while having a conversation about the spring, the harvest or their calling as sculptor or priest.
Uut de bron was recorded in May 2015 by Pim van de Werken and the edition appears as a collaboration between Wintertuin and Snowstar Records on Black Friday; the day which independent recordstores celebrate by releasing special editions. It is a limited edition of 500 hand numbered copies.
He also released 'Kleinpolderplein' in 2016. 'Kleinpolderplein' is a limited, handmade, new broeder Dieleman release. The cover photo is made by broeder Dieleman himself, every release is unique!
Motel Mozaique Festival asked broeder Dieleman to create a landscape project about the Kleinpolderplein at their last edition; a public square which was once a polder, but is actually a busy traffic junction nowadays. The project (a collaboration between the Observatorium and CBK Rotterdam) covers a quest for what has past, what is now and yet to come at the public square in Rotterdam.
Kleinpolderplein is a music piece, accompanied by photographs and a poem. The edition is handnumbered and handmade by broeder Dieleman, and includes a photograh made by himself. Every single one is unique, and there is are just 100 of them.
