Mariska Baars / Rutger Zuydervelt - Eau [Self Release - 2019]

Mariska Baars has been releasing wonderful sonic minimalism since 2005 under the moniker of “Soccer Committee” and so she is no light weight when it comes to bringing sonic atmosphere to her work. Rutger Zuydervelt aka Netherlands Machinefabriek also stands out as a prolific artist in the drone and minimalism genre, releasing a vast catalog of very capturing audio escapes. They have been collaborating for years.. so this release is actually just the latest in an ongoing sound flirtation between these two amazing artists.

The album title is “eau” it is pronounced “oh” and is the French word meaning water ..which is what the album strives to emulate in sound.. creating an atmosphere with the flow of sound that pulsates like waves crashing in your ear.. a trickling sonic lake where you rest and let the real world fade away and you drift ..and it is very dreamy.. a beautiful continuous composition that takes the listener on a soothing and comfortable ride

“Eau” is actually a meditative tool designed by Baars and Zuydervelt.. it comes with instructions...”Just let it play (on repeat…) and let the sounds hang in the room - let them co-excist with any other sound that’s there. Open a window if you wish! Or, experience the trip on headphones, let these soft tones, gentle voices, buzzes and crackles tickle the inside of your skull. “ and if you follow these instructions and let it fill the atmosphere your results will be very relaxing.. This is a great release.. and superb collaboration and I hope they continue to knock it out of the park with the next one too!
