Rutger Zuydervelt / Machinefabriek Update

Various artists: Ambient Layers
Digital compilation on 7K!
Super happy that Michel Banabila and myself could contribute a track (Cassina) to this album. Other artists include Adam Wiltzie (Stars of the Lid), Midori Hirano, Robert Lippok, Pjusk, Lisa Morgenstern, Ryan Teague, and many more.

Elliot Sharp: Foliage
LP and DL on Moving Furniture Records
Interpretations of graphic scores from Elliott Sharp. My job for this album was to take the recordings from the instrumentalists (Dario Calderone, Gareth Davis, Pepe Garcia, Koen Kaptijn) and edit and re-work them into the pieces that are on this album. Besides this ‘post production’ thing, I also did the graphic design for the LP. It’s available on my Bandcamp page now.

Jean D.L. / Rutger Zuydervelt: Scramblings
CD and DL on Inexhaustible Editions
Released in October, but now on my own Bandcamp page as well: Scramblings, my album with Belgian guitarist and sound artist Jean D.L.. Eight rough-edged collages with (mostly) guitar and field recordings. Very happy that this one is released on the impacible Inexhaustible Editions label.

Museum Voorlinden
Music for Kunst in het Kort videos
Aldine Reinink and Sjors Swierstra directed a series of short videos for one of my favorite museums: Voorlinden. In each (2 minute) episode, director Suzanne Swarts highlights an artwork of the museum’s permanent collection. The music is a remake of a very old track by me: The Drummer (which appears on De Jonge Jaren).
The videos are Dutch-spoken but with English subtitles.
