Machinefabriek – Crumble
Machinefabriek’s new album, ‘Crumble’, is full of dramatic turns, immersive drones, glitchy electronics and intimate gestures. The long form piece was made by having violin player Anne Bakker and vocalist Edita Karkoschka improvise on an electronic track, and using these recordings (and added electronics and field recordings) to sculpt the 34 minute ‘Crumble’.
Rutger Zuydervelt started doing music as Machinefabriek in 2004, and has released a slew of albums since. Besides operating solo (from his homebase Rotterdam or live on stages worldwide), he’s a keen collaborator, working with (electronic, jazz or classical) musicians, film makers as well as choreographers. Rutger didn’t study music, but graduated as a graphic designer.
