In 2011 Azure Mortal started as a one-man project. Dirk Swartenbroekx used this project to create avant-garde electronic audio-experiments for art installations, expos, films and choreography. By now Azure Mortal has evolved into a five man band. Dark ambient is probably the best way to describe their unique sound.
Nurse With Wound, Throbbing Gristle, Ornette Coleman, Steve Reich and Five or Six are a huge inspiration. The first cd of Azure Mortal is released in march 2014 on the label of Radical Slave/Prova. The mini-album is titled The End of Society. Azure Mortal made this cd as a soundtrack for the work of Artist Rudi Eurlings.
In may 2014, a new Azure Mortal vinyl single was released on Record Store Day 2014 by Wally’s Groove World Record shop in Antwerp. In may 2015 they released the new mini-album Deadweight.
In April 2016 the full-length album Duivels was released.
