Machinefabriek ‘Amalgaam CD

Amalgaam is a raw and unpolished album. Which doesn’t mean that it’s blunt or trite. The grainy, textural sounds on this record have a fleeting, cinematic quality to them, combining spaciousness with a sense of intimacy – at times interrupted by noisier outbursts. The album is based on a series of improvisations on a very hands-on hardware setup, with an old tone generator, effects pedals, dictaphones, contact mics, etc. This material was then mixed and edited into the pieces on this album, while retaining the liveliness of the source material. The only deviation is ‘Metallic (Edit)’, which is an older track that originally appeared on a Japanese compilation tape, but – especially in this newly edited form – seemed to fit between the Amalgaam pieces perfectly.
