Jean D.L. / Rutger Zuydervelt “Scramblings” CD




Jean De Lacoste (1984) from Ghent, Belgium is simultaneously working as a musician and as a video artist, but the approach he has to organized sounds and organized images seems reversed: his music Рeither when he plays the guitar or when he uses field recordings Рis an imagetic and hazy soundscape, while his musically structured films try to provoke abstract emotions through the titillation of memories and fantasies. He has been working mainly in solo, but has also collaborated with artists such as Alan Courtis, Julia Kent, S̩bastien Biset or Sandrine Verstraete. /

Rotterdam-based composer and sound artist Rutger Zuydervelt (1978) started recording under the alias Machinefabriek in 2004. His music combines elements of electro-acoustic experiments, minimalism, field recordings, ambient, drone and noise. The music 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 its depth upon closer listening, because as he says: the devil is in the details. /
