about

The album 'Tak' (branch) holds several recordings of different branches, equipped with contact microphones, playing records. The sharpened branch is secured in such a way that the branch skips in the grooves and a repetitive pattern occurs. During playback, both the branch and the grooves wear down, gradually deforming the sound of the playing record. This process produces lengthy recordings with a slowly and subtly changing, increasingly more gritty sound, shifting patterns, audible wear and the amplified resonance of the different branches used.

The album is available as a 'very limited edition retrofitted USB branch' (with an extra 4 hour bonus track!), but also as a 'regular' download (without bonus tracks).

'Tak' was shown as an art installation in the Instruments Make Play expo in Kunstenlab (NL).
