Francis Alban Blake
Francis Alban Blake is the pseudonym of Dutch poet, philosopher, and musician Frans de Blaak, who has gone missing since 2018. After going through his diaries, poems, and notebooks, his family and friends discovered he willfully disappeared. In his own words: “I will become the overman. Well beyond this world’s reach”.
Early 2019, the Frans de Blaaks family gave Frank Bond (AlascA, King Forward Records, Space is the Place studio) permission to complete the recordings of the unfinished Francis Blake record Passages. In the process, Bond claims to have discovered a way to summon Francis Blake from whence he has gone.
