In my own studio, the Animal Kingdom, collaborating with a number of musical guests from great bands such as Alamo Race Track, Moss, Seesaw, the MAE and Kopna Kopna I recorded an album about the time when day turns to night and night into day. "What happens in a meadow at dusk?". The Grand Mystique was mixed by Frans Hagenaars.
The Unheard Film Festival, spin-off of Kriterion asked us to create a soundtrack for an old movie. We picked the forever brilliant The Birds by Alfred Hitchcock. This film suited the philosophy of Ghost Trucker that great mystery lies in the ordinary.

The video for our song Under The Stars, made by Marleen Heidweiller is a small masterpiece, going from the artwork for the album and taking this a lot further, thank you Marleen!
