Text by Esc.rec .:

"'Struin'by Jeroen Diepenmaat is made entirely on a modular synthesizer with two self-built CV controlled turntables. The pulse from the oscillator drives the turntables and by varying the frequencies, the pitch and the intervals of both playing records change. One record player plays. a record with bird sounds, on the other you can hear frogs.

'Stop' by Wouter van Veldhoven is a somewhat minimalist piece consisting of a Risset rhythm of real and unreal metal sounds. Using the rhythmic structures by Jean Claude Risset, an illusion of continuously slowing down is perceived. These sounds were then run through an improvised. plate reverb and recorded on a rather tinny sounding wire recorder. In the second part, a rickety violin and Wouter van Veldhoven's own equally unstable vocals slowly take over, recorded on the worst piece of audio tape he could find.

Wouter van Veldhoven has been working with wonky tape recorders and related equipment (wire recorders, disc recorders, etc.) since 2005. He tries to get these machines working again with all sorts of trickery, or at the very least have them producing or processing sound in some way. Starting from a cabinet of self-built curiosities, he carefully builds detailed sound layers, like some sort of magician.

Jeroen Diepenmaat is a visual artist with a predilection for sound. In his work, consisting of drawings, sculptures, installations and performances, he explores the cutting edge between image and sound and the transition from one to the other. excursions into the world of modular synths have increased and spawn all sorts of related inventions.

Review by Frans de Waard (Vital Weekly):

"Here we have a split cassette by two Dutch sound artists whose work I appreciate quite a bit. I know Van Veldhoven a bit longer than Diepenmaat, but by now both of them have released an impressive amount of work. Both artists can be seen as an inventor, tinkering with machines. First, we have Van Diepenmaat with'Struin', a work for modular synthesizer and two CV controlled turntables, that Diepenmaat made in conjunction with the field kit, a creation from Koma Elektronik. Van Veldhoven has 74 reel -to-reel recorders at home (at least when I visited him some time ago), and creates constructions with these machines, with loops that can also be CV controlled. The results are quite different. Van Diepenmaat's'Struin' (which means' wander'in English) opens up with what seems to be the sound of insects or frogs, but quickly you'll learn that these are electronic sounds. There is a pulse also, that goes along with the imitation of animal sounds (or, maybe , these are from a record that Van Diepenmaat is playing at any speed, backwards as well as forwards), but slowly it all moves towards a more electronic field, with occasional sharp tones. The piece has a somewhat improvised feeling and remains open towards the end. On the other side, there is'Stop' (which is Dutch for'Stop') by Wouter van Veldhoven, who works with the rhythmic structures by Jean-Claude Risset, which open up here. The music is on a repeat mission, but slowing down over a few minutes At two-third new sound elements are added on rather worn out tape (so says the label), apparently violin and voice, but it is hard to say if it is just that. Van Veldhoven's piece is not as Empty as Diepenmaat but shares a similar'free' approach to composing or improvising here (there is a thin line, I would say). Comes in a nice riso-printed carton sleeve. "
