Machinefabriek with Anne Bakker
Short Scenes

Walking electro-acoustic ambient factory Machinefabriek (Rutger Zuydervelt) converts sessions from another project with violinist-violist Anne Bakker into a suite of vignettes for Zoharum. They’re short. They’re scenes. They’re Short Scenes. If you’re familiar with the ‘briek, you’ll have an idea of what this is like, although Zuydervelt’s manipulations show great restraint overall; it’s mainly multi-tracked strings, rather than glittering, digital textures.

Machinefabriek with Anne Bakker

Machinefabriek seems to have been listening to some Iannis Xenakis (as should everyone)! This new mini-album finds him moving away from his usual style, commissioning violinist Anne Bakker to perform a series of single-string glissandi, multiple recordings of which are layered up (and bolstered by a sine tone) to produce a tonally intense piece. Self-released CD.
