Driftmachine ‎– Driftmachine Plays Marien van Oers

$26.00

Honoring the late Marien Van Oers, or solo act, Het Zweet, Amsterdam label, Ongehoord, releases Driftmachine’s interpretation of Van Oers’ original cassette recordings of 1983 containing vibrant metalline zings and contagious sways of tribal percussion.

Native to Breda, Netherlands; Van Oers was known for his creative ways of constructing electric minimal music by usage of found sound materials like metal scraps, old boilers, and cardboard tubes, in order to create hypnotic 10 minute percussion trance pieces.

Van Oers explains “the basic idea of performance is experiencing a constant repetition of sound (=rhythm), which can result in the spectator taking action through movement or getting into a form of trance.” Driftmachine replicates Van ores' syncopations by using two racks of modular systems; performed in 2019 at Minimal Musi Festival in Amsterdam and Muziek Gebouw wan ’t lJ.
