Ranenast
For Stroomtoon (which can be translated as “the sound of electricity”) we find Rutger produce a totally electronic piece (as opposed to organic ambient), creating textured drones from an analog tone generator and loop pedals. Beginning with an auditory illusion of a descending Shepard glissando (a superposition of sine waves that appears to continuously pitch down ad infinitum), the 18-minute synthetic chant is superimposed with Machinefabriek‘s staple static, crackling sounds, and echoing field recordings (Mastered by Giuseppe Ielasi). Additional pulsating sequences are added beneath the high pitched piercing frequency (my dog ran away), to further explore the possibilities of sine waves and filtered harmonics. “The original idea was to use parts of these recordings in unedited form, but playing around with these soundfiles, the end result became much more layered and detailed, while still keeping the raw energy of the original material intact.” This is unlike the poised and moderate Machinefabriek you’re used to. At times the bass ramps up in volume and begins to vibrate the dust beneath the wooden frame of my house, until the hiding insects die from bursting little hearts (they do have hearts, don’t they?). This is indeed the sound of gigantic thermal power plants, dynamo electric generators, and high voltage power lines. For fans of buzzing minimalism and analog tones.
