Prolific collaborator Rutger Zuydervelt (Machinefabriek) marks another notch on his laptop in this improvised live recording with One Man Nation aka Marc Chia. Their fifteen minute performance was captured at the Bimhuis, Amsterdam, December 8, 2011, for ethnomusically-minded gathering, The Future Sounds of Folk, and manifests a minimal sound sculpture of clicks and pops ballasted by quaking bass and free-roaming electro-acoustic diffusions. Machinefabriek's own remix, done after the moment, reduces the piece to six minutes of glowing micro-tonal harmonies and skeletal metallic whirrs embedded in a sumptuous subbass ooze, whereas One Man Nation's remix is more kinetic, fizzing with boiling sonorities and under attack from detached chunks of rhythm and noise.
Track one is a live improvisation at the Bimhuis, Amsterdam, December 8 2011, for The Future Sounds of Folk.
