Turntable/Saxophone duo live (London)

I’m playing turntable, dubplates and spring reverbs with Colin Webster on baritone saxophone, supporting Machinefabriek at I’klektik art lab, London on Thursday 16th June. We will play an improvised set, previewing the kind of material on the new tape Oval, out on Tombed Visions in a few weeks (pictured, artwork by Lewis Mclean).


Machinefabriek + Graham Dunning & Colin Webster – Thursday 16 June – 8pm – £10 online / £13 door

Machinefabriek is the alias of Rutger Zuydervelt. Rutger’s music combines elements of ambient, noise, minimalism, drone, field recordings and electro-acoustic experiments. His pieces can be heard as 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 itself upon closer listening. The devil is in the details. After a series of self released cd-rs, his official debut Marijn was issued in 2006, with great critical acclaim. Since then a solid stream of music was released on labels such as Type, Important, Home Normal, 12K, Entr’acte, Dekorder, Digitalis, Experimedia and Staalplaat. He performed all over the globe, from Canada to Israel and from Russia to Japan.

Rutger collaborated (on record and/or live) with numerous artists, such as Colin Webster, Jaap Blonk, Aaron Martin, Peter Broderick, Frans de Waard, Steve Roden, Michel Banabila, Dead Neanderthals and Gareth Davis, amongst many others.

The duo of Graham Dunning  and Colin Webster perform improvised music avoiding conventional playing of their respective instruments: Turntable and saxophone. Graham Dunning uses a single turntable with dubplates of field recordings, dentistry tools and other objects to create crackling textures, tones and disjointed noise. On saxophone, Colin Webster uses a range of techniques to bring a palette of percussive and textural sounds, drawn tones, and raw, searing blasts.

The duo have recorded 3 albums, with their 4th out in May on Tombed Visions, and have also recorded a collaboration with tubaist Sam Underwood.
