Machinefabriek – Elastiek

Machinefabriek – Elastiek


Limited edition run of 100 copies in postcard packaging…

I had been thinking of making a long form static drone piece for quite some time, but I just wasn’t patient enough to actually do it. It takes some effort to let a sound be, and not being tempted to manipulate it. Though I won’t call my music very wild, the 20 minutes of ‘Elastiek’ are by far the most continuous I’ve done. And I think it’s best to listen to not as a musical piece, but more as an ongoing ‘state’. Obviously, there’s not much action in the composition, but it’s all in the details. The focus gradually shifts from one frequency to another, causing slow, barely perceptible movements. When I stretched out the piano tone used in this work, I noticed that I was listening to it like I would listen to a refrigerator, or some air vent… not looking for progress in the audio, but diving into the sound, and focusing on different beating frequencies, timbres and tones that are to be found when listening closely. Like dissecting it under a microscope.
