Machinefabriek – Veldwerk CD

Cold Spring

With astute design and bold colors and text Veldwerk is presented. The artwork is curious especially coming from a label that specializes in the dark and gothic. But it appears here that Machinefabriek focuses on carefully composed musique concrete with other subtle elements added.

The compositions are quite effective using delicate sounds that ebb and flow. Peaks and valleys lead to moments of engaging sound effects, subtle haunting harmonies, and finally intense noise swells to form a well-rounded front. There are also elements of guitar which somehow even fitting surprisingly.

Some research into the project reveals that they have a rather large discography, so it’s strange I haven’t heard their work before. Although it might not stick out as incredibly memorable, it’s weird, wonderful and recommended listening. For fans of acts like Brume, Telepherique and other more electroacoustic-influenced work.
