Machinefabriek (Rutger Zuyderveldt from Arnhem, Holland) is amongst the finest experimental/electronic artists of recent years – his ultra-prolific back catalogue showcases his ability to perfect classical ambience, organic drone soundscapes, electronic minimalism and cathartic noise, and he has been hailed as one of the most interesting new experimental musicians by the Wire magazine.

Live, Rutger eschews the traditional route of hiding behind his laptop, and instead creates hypnotic pieces from live traditional instruments, found objects and signal processors.

Reviews:

“’Lawine’ showcases the singular talent of Rutger Zuydervelt, his ability to morph from near-absolute sonic stilness to noise jams with slow, barely descernible stealth.”        – The Wire

“Zuydervelt proves himself a master of atmospherics and control, creating Hitchcockian tension building suspense and pulling back… A truly remarkable work.”           – Indiecult

“QUITE POSSIBLY ONE OF THE FINEST ALBUMS OF THE YEAR… Rutger Zuydervelt has married the smart post rock sensibility of Mogwai with something far more experimental and the crunchy turntablism of Jeck with something far more accessible. The resulting sound is a deeply immersive collection of experiments, populist sounds with a noisy bent, or post rock without the rock.”       – Boomkat
