Gegenschein - an audiovisual project


The project Gegenschein was created by William MacVaine and Henk Bril in 2013. After a short while Rob Hotje joined forces.

Gegenschein is based in Nieuwstadt, The Netherlands. HQ is 'The One Studio', owned by William.

Project Gegenschein will deliver music that without doubt will prove the creative qualities of William (composer), Rob (lead singer) and Henk (lyrics).

Henk also is responsible for the accompanying pictures.

Their videos can be found on Youtube and are a result of a joint effort of all three of them.


You can find us on facebook and our songs at reverbnation!


Our musical style? A mix of Pink Floyd, Rammstein, Eagles, Alan Parsons, Vaughan Williams, Electric Light Orchestra - and we'll forget quite a few.

But unmistakenly GEGENSCHEIN.


Gegenschein (German pronunciation: [ˈɡeːɡənʃaɪn] German for "countershine") is a faint brightening of the night sky in the region of the antisolar

point. [Source: Wikipedia.]

The beautiful picture shown above is based upon an original from ESO and was taken by Yuri Beletsky in October 2007.
