$39.00
Dutch label Ongehoord present 'Driftmachine Plays Marien van Oers', a parallel physical output to the concert 'Massive Trance: Interpreted byModular synth duo Driftmachine, which was performed during the 2019 Minimal Music Festival in Amsterdam.Both the concert performed at Muziek Gebouw aan 't IJ and the album take their cue from a cassette produced in 1983 by the Dutch experimental composer Marien van Oers (1955-2013). 

The original cassette states Van Oers' following intentions: "The basic idea of the 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." His percussion based pieces are all but industrial; the self-built instruments and repetitive chanting aim to achieve a physicality that is closer to tribal music.
