Oh dear! It's been so long since I posted something at one2zero. I've really been neglecting this blog; hadn't noticed that it's been almost 6 months (!!!) since my last update here. Most of my (very little) free time seems to be taken up by my other blogs; by Flickr, and Twitter. Anyhow, I'll soon be working on a complete overhaul of my various blogs (layouts etc.) and promise (don't hold your breath) to post more at one2zero in the future. It's not as if I haven't had any new records to blabber on about but I have been -due to lack of funds- buying a lot less than I used to. Which is no excuse because 'less is more' so to speak (of). Or write about.
Well, for today we have latest production from the very prolific Machinefabriek. Some more electronic wizardry from Rutger Zuydervelt made this time using "tuning forks, steel wool, contact mics, memo recorders, looped cassettes, an answering machine tape, a ring modulator and looper pedals" no less. Not the best thing (in my mind) that Rutger's done but altogether very pleasant drones and whatnot; well worth a few listens on the headphones (in the dark). Nice artwork but it would have been so much better had it been packaged otherwise than in a jewel case. japanese forms
