That Jazz Standards thing. It isn't really, like, jazz standards, is it?

I haven't heard that one yet. I suspect they're fairly loose interpretations, but then Gareth Davis is a horn-blower, so you never know.

Rutger's sax mix over at the always brilliant Liminal is pretty cool.

Really? I think that's an example of one that's really hard for most people to enjoy - y'know, it's so slow and minimal, there's so much patience required for the payoff. Still, it restores my faith  to hear that I'm not the only madman who likes it.

^^^ Cool - reminds me of Oren Ambarchi

I posted about Machinefabriek's new releases in the 'Coming Out' thread, but should have put it here :

The one I've been enjoying is the 'Bridges' release, although it's not really a Machinefabriek release as such.

I had a dream the other day that I was listening to Machinefabriek and enjoying it. I was surprised because it was not so minimal as the Machinefabriek I'd listened to before; it was more like, say, Aphex Twin's ambient works or something. Maybe this is a sign it's time to listen to those Machinefabriek mixes of Nick's that I downloaded awhile ago!

Quick update, as 2012 is starting to shape up.

First of all, the euro folks here might be interested that Machinefabriek and Celer are touring Belgium and The Netherlands together in March (details at Machinefabriek's site, under 'agenda').

The two artists (with 165 releases between them, according to discogs) have also combined (via post at least) for a beautiful pair of tracks, sold out on vinyl but available for digital d/l at bandcamp. I think these tracks are 'Dauw'-level gorgeousness.


Machinefabriek & Celer - Maastunnel/Mt.Mitake

On the horizon, there's a CD accompaniment to an installation piece with sound artist Steve Roden, called 'Lichtung', out in April, and before that a CD called Colour Tones out on Fang Bomb which looks very promising, featuring lots of Rutger's old sidekicks (Aaron Martin, Gareth Davis etc.) and produced by Guiseppe Ielasi. There's also a new 7" out on a new Swedish label that has some short installation pieces from a Dutch street festival last year.


Machinefabriek - Colour Tones   / Ontrafelde Tonen

Finally, a fantastic set of looped sine tones called 15/15, just out and also mastered by Ielasi.


Machinefabriek - 15/15

March 15 - Studio Loos, The Hague

A little review of the first date here at Fluid Radio

I hadn't realised that Celer and Machinefabriek are actually performing together, not just touring together.

Latest stuff, lifted from the 'new music bought today' thread

I just sent Mr.Machinefabriek some more clams, in return for these (all digital, though the third comes with a set of postcards):


Celer & Machinefabriek - Numa/Penarie

This is the second 7-inch from Celer & Machinefabriek. The first (Maastunnel/Mt.Mitaake) was ridiculously good:

1.Numa 05:20
2.Penarie 04:40



Steve Roden & Machinefabriek - Lichtung

A collaboration with Roden, and also German visual artist, Sabine Bürger:

1.leaves 04:55
2.ice strings 03:38
3.birds plucks stones 03:58
4.wind 03:06
5.ice bow 07:11
6.snow bellsnow 07:39
7.floor radio 03:10
8.some things within 03:32
9.vayhinger 08:14



Celer & Machinefabriek - Greetings From Celer & Machinefabriek

This one is a collection of the live recordings from their recent little tour of the Netherlands and Belgium. 5 euros for 3 hours of music!:
   
1.
Den Haag 26:26
2.Brussels 26:26
3.Maastricht 21:29
4.Deventer 26:45
5.Utrecht 27:32
6.Leiden 30:30
7.Drachten 16:13


All avaialable through Machinefabriek's bandcamp page.

A couple of other things that are imminent are the Stroomtoon album on Nuun Records (experiments with loops made on an analogue tone generator), and a simple static drone piece called Elastiek.

edit: Having realised that I had inadvertently swindled Rutger out of the correct postage for those postcards, I also just bought this one, partly out of guilt:


One Man Nation & Machinefabriek

The Celer & Machinefabriek releases are starting to crawl around under my skin now, especially the live set in 'Greetings'. It's 7 consecutive, unedited 25-minute-or-so performances from that mini-tour, which while they are all different and separate, cross-reference each other and feature recurrent motifs and themes (e.g. tuning forks, a trumpet figure, birdsong, shrill whistle blasts, crunchy clouds of crackling static and a man talking about bull elk vocalisations). 3 hours of thrilling and dynamic ambient music, for a measly 5 euros.

One other new thing is a very interesting interview here at A Closer Listen, where he talks about why he releases so much stuff, his equipment and the live process, and how he started out as a doom metal fan, amongst other things.



edit: I also just bought Elastiek from Entropy Records, a 20-minute static drone piece, and apparently the most continuous and unchanging piece he's ever released.

Alright, I picked up the Greetings thing, partly because I haven't actually given Machinefabriek any money yet, which I should, and also partly for the postcards.

I ordered that the day before yesterday too, along with Colour Tones. Within an hour, Mr. Machinefabriek thanked me for my order and said he'd get the things ready to be sent out as quickly as possible, and a day later it was already here.

I think "mosaic" might be my new favourite colour.

Couple of new things to mention....a DVD/mp3 release called Pierdrie, based on recordings of the Waalharven harbour in Rotterdam. Later in the summer, theres Hei/Sou, a third 7-inch with Celer, and then a collaboration with Jaap Blonk, called Deep Fried.

Rutger Zuyderfeldt & Espen Reinertsen - Windtunnel

There's a free download available of Rutger Zuyderfeldt & Espen Reinertsen's Windtunnel available here, a stereo rendition of an art installation piece in The Netherlands earlier this month. Reinertsen plays saxophone, though I'm not sure I'd be able to detect that by listening to it. Still, it's a pleasingly gloopy concoction of droning high notes.

Also, a new CD on Important coming soon, called Secret Photographs.

I just bought Stroomtoon, but I haven't listened to it yet.

I'm checking it out on Bandcamp right now (yeah, I've had trouble keeping up lately), and six minutes in it's sounding quite interesting! What's your take on it?
