NOR016: Machinefabriek – Sprank

NOR016-Sprank-BandcampSprank marks the glorious return of Dutch maestro Machinefabriek to Norwegianism Records. The album is a collage made with recordings of circuit bent effects pedals and can be seen as the equivalent of a huge abstract yet detailed paiting, made with with a very tiny brush. A truly mesmerizing record.

Kluwen-Bandcamp1Dutch ambient / drone legend Machinefabriek experimented with various equipment in the studio resulting in 23 minutes of pure abstraction. As if an android made a solo drum album. Really awesome!
