L/M/R/W. Drifts

Home Normal - homen009

Four amazing musicians spread over three collaborations on one release. 'Drifts' is an engaging and beautiful work. Three compositions / pieces of music / soundscapes / acoustic structures / audio landscapes are collected on the disc. Are they improvised? Are they composed? Are they structured? A combination of any possibility? Does it matter?


L stands for Leo Fabriek adding harmonium to Birthday and subtle piano touches to Tegendraads.


M stands for Mariska Baars who also composes solo as Soccer Committee but never is shy to engage in a collaboration. The only 'she' of the gang adds guitar and voice on Birthday and voice on Clay.


R stands for Rutger Zuydervelt (aka Machinefabriek) and is the only one featured on all three tracks adding guitar, sampler, effects and editing to Birthday and Tegendraads. On Clay he seems to control the controls.


W stands for Wouter van Weldhoven who also releases solo compositions. On Birthday and Tegendraads he contributes taperecorders and melodica.


The collaborators, the recordings and the title of the release fit perfectly together. Each track has a distinct and individual approach and voice of it's own. Track 1 Birthday has an almost static feel. Each sound seems to be frozen and locked in itself and layered over and over each other until new overtones shine through the thick fog of sound creating an almost orchestral density. Track 2 Clay has a more quiet beginning. The sense of a voice fades in and takes over the piece. While the voice changes in pitch the track opens up like wings spreading further in the stereo field. After a peak the sounds slowly seem to be crawling back and hiding in the speakers leaving the voice on it's own again. Track 3 Tegendraads has a calming effect which lets the listener lean back and breathe while the piano notes drop randomly through the track like raindrops falling from the sky at the end of a storm. A voice speaks to the listener which has a soothing effect. The sounds and tones seem to stay more in place not wanting to move forward or backward while circling around and holding each other by the hand.


A perfect ending to a superb release! Drifts drifts (1) and drifts (2) and drifts (3) and…
