Tearing The BlackBox

Tearing The BlackBox

TEARING THE BLACKBOX is a collaboration between Canadian musician/producer Kelly Cook (ex-Moev) and Dutch musician/producer Frank Weyzig (Born For Bliss, Vaselyne, ex-Clan of Xymox).

This is what Frank Weyzig has to say about this new project:

Mid 2020, I started a new project together with Kelly Cook, ex bass player with Moev, a band from Canada that you probably will remember if you were into wave music from the 80’s and early 90’s… I toured the USA with Xymox together with Moev during the summer of 1989. Me and Kelly then became friends but lost contact. Now, in the present time, we connected again and we have been working on some music ideas.

First it was just something we did for fun and we bounced our files and audio tracks over the internet, across the ocean and worked on different ideas. But all along the way, these ideas became songs and these songs became full grown mixes and now we are the point that we actually surprised ourselves with the sound output of this new music. We have already enough material for a complete full album and we are planning to release a first EP somewhere around spring 2021.


Our idea about the meaning of ‘Tearing The Blackbox’, is the overall concept of ‘exposing and revealing the truth’. Within this concept the Blackbox stands for the placeholder of the truth. A box, shrouded in mystery. Only by tearing this box apart and breaking it, we can reveal the truth and expose what is real.

We live in a time when we can no longer distinguish the truth from a lie on social media and on other different media channels. The internet has become a minefield of disinformation. You have to navigate it carefully. It’s like swimming with sharks.

So get ready to tear apart the (music)box that holds the truth and let the music speak for itself.
