"Machinefabriek is the alias of Rutger Zuydervelt. Rutger's music combines elements of ambient, noise, minimalism, drone, field recordings and electro-acoustic experiments. His pieces can be heard as an attempt to create sonic environments for the listener to dwell in. Finding tension in texture, tone and timing, the result can be very minimalistic at first glance, but reveals itself upon closer listening. The devil is in the details.

Rutger was born in 1978 in Apeldoorn (The Netherlands) and now resides in Rotterdam. He started recording as Machinefabriek in 2004. After a series of self released cd-rs, his official debut Marijn was issued in 2006, with great critical acclaim. Since than, a solid stream of music was released on labels such as Type, Important, Home Normal, 12K, Entr'acte, Dekorder, Miasmah, Consouling Sounds, Experimedia and Staalplaat. He performed all over the globe, from Canada to Israel and from Russia to Japan.

Rutger collaborated (on record and/or live) with numerous artists, such as Steinbrüchel, Jaap Blonk, Aaron Martin, Peter Broderick, Frans de Waard, Mats Gustafsson, Steve Roden, Gareth Davis, Stephen Vitiello, Michel Banabila, Dirk Serries and Dead Neanderthals, amongst many others.

He frequently works with film makers, like Makino Takashi, Mike Hoolboom, John Price, Paul Clipson and Chris Teerink, for whom he composed a soundtrack for his documentary about Sol LeWitt. Rutger also recorded the music for the Canadian drama The Cold and the Quiet from 2014. Furthermore, his music was used in Edward Burtynsky's Watermark, the drama Stone (with Robert DeNiro and Edward Norton) and Josh Fox' influential Gasland and Gasland Part II documentaries. Besides films, Rutger also composes music for dance pieces, like Alix Eynaudi and Kris Verdonck's EXIT (premiéred at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin), Alexander Whitley's The Measures Taken (for the Royal Opera in London) and Beheld (for Candoco Dance Company), and multiple pieces by Spanish/Dutch choreographer Iván Pérez. Then there's Rutgers installation work, in which the dialogue with the environment plays an important role. He did projects for Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, NAi (Dutch Architecture Institute), the new Armando Museum MOA, Sounds Like Audio Art in Saskatoon (Canada), the Into the Great Wide Open Festival, Netwerk in Aalst (Belgium) and children's museum Villa Zebra in Rotterdam."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Prolific experimental music purveyor Machinefabriek and droning free jazz combo Dead Neanderthals team up for the second DNMF album entitled Smelter. Clocking in at nearly 40 minutes, Smelter is a highly dynamic amalgam of metal, drone and dark ambient and is hard to compare to anything else out there."-Moving Furniture



"Machinefabriek's Rutger Zuydervelt and the two lads from avant-everything experimentalists Dead Neanderthals have made a second record. Their first, eponymous release (also via the plucky underground label Moving Furniture) was a two-headed monster of drone and noise that can be blamed for most of the recent earthquakes in Groningen. The new one, Smelter, is an absolute teeth-rattler. It's a gimlet-eyed mix of romantic Froese-eque soundscapes, crashing percussion and what may as well be a recording of new motorways being constructed; T-Dream or Modest Mussorgsky as sludge metal.

Take heed: these soundscapes are simply enormous. The title is well chosen, too; as there is a physicality to this record that generates serious heat. It's as if the grind of the instruments stokes the glare of an imaginary blast furnace, melting all sonic components into an ambiguous glutinous whole. Not a record for small spaces."-Richard Foster, The Quietus



Dead Neanderthals incorporates elements of noise, free jazz, metal and minimal music in their sound and released albums on Utech Records, Gaffer Records, Relative Pitch Records and Grindcore Karaoke.

Dead Neanderthals did shows with Shining (No), Napalm Death, Staer, MoHa!, Gum Takes Tooth, Jucifer and Orthodox just to name a few, and played festivals like Incubate, Le Guess Who?, Roadburn, Solomacello, Gaffer Fest, Utech Records Music Festival and many more."-Dead Neanderthals website
