A live performance at Ephemere, Studio Loos in The Netherlands from Rutger Zuydervelt, AKA Machinefabriek, in a set that mixes his sources with recordings from the room, creating a dynamic and vibrant recording that ranges from subtle near-silence to thick electronic excitement.


Machinefabriek: Loos (self-released)

Label: self-released    
Released in: Netherlands    

"Performing at Studio Loos is always a treat. The organisers are wonderful, their soundsystem is top notch and there's always a big crowd that's open mi3.50nded and quiet as mice. What a difference with my concerts in Russia, a few months earlier! In Moscow and St-Petersburg, it felt like I was battling the chatter of the audience, causing the gigs to be loud and crude. The energy of the room clearly reverberated in what blasted out of the speaker system. With the same setup, but with an (in comparison) almost holy atmosphere, the performance at Studio Loos was much more concentrated, leaving space for very quiet parts subtle gestures. I always had the idea that I wanted my music to be as minimal as possible, without loosing excitement and power. In that regard (and forgive me for my complacency) this performance was one of my best. The audio on the CD is a mix of the sound coming from my mixer and a recording in the room."-Rutger Zuydervelt

Note: this recording is very dynamic, with very soft and ultra-low parts... Play on a good sound system or on headphones for best results.
