RUISBURO: Minus Pilots + Machinefabriek + Orphax
Sunday, October 8, 20:30, € 7
Three drone giants meet. This night has three sets: two solo performances by Minus Pilots and Machinefabriek and finally an improvised trio set by Orphax, Machinefabriek and Minus Pilots.
With only one electric bass and a volume controller each, a scattering of analogue delay/looping pedals and a broken four-track cassette tape recorder, Minus Pilots weaves together sparse textures, crumbling atmospheres and fractured drones with currents of gentle crackle. His music has been published by Champion Version, Dronarivm, Eat, Sleep, Repeat, Fake Jazz, Futurerecordings, Panic Arrest and Superior Standards.
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.
Orphax is the musical project of Sietse van Erve, with a focus on minimal ambient and drone music. In the music there is a development towards microtonal sounds, where time and spatiality are important factors. In this form of working the eventual result can be a static form of sound where development in the music becomes subordinate to the listener losing any sense of time.
