Rutger Zuydervelt (Machinefabriek) gets all playful, finally venturing into video-game 'tracking on 'Astroneer'; summat we at NR didn't dare dream would happen. The game lets you reshape terrain like Play-Doh. Mmm. The music's bendy, squishy and spacey to match the theme. Self published CD, limited to just 200 and encased in matt-finished digipack which is already a design classic. Far out.
Self-released CD in matt finished digipak. Edition of 200 copies, includes a download for 10 extra tracks!.

In which Machinefabriek guy Rutger Zuydervelt lets loose in his sonic sandbox to soundtrack an American indie video game. The sounds are squishy and malleable to match the reshape-able terrain the lucky gamer gets to get their mitts on, in ‘Astroneer’.
The twinkly, playful cheekiness on these 16 tracks (with a further 10 available via download) document the flip side of the otherwise more moody seriousness of the Mchnfbrk. Rather lovely it all is too, squelchy synths dancing atop spacey atmospherics like intergalactic jaunts. Music for forming your own worlds to before setting them free or to orbit new stars, possibly in your mind. Only 200 of these beautifully designed and finished 4-panel digi-pack cds.
