Ask me anything   ...Live...   ...Releases...   

My name is Wouter van Veldhoven, I make music using collected second hand materials including, cans, old tape recorders, cigar boxes, broken radios, toy pianos, antique televisions, etc. etc. I rework them in experimental musical instruments and use them as recording devices.
The music balances somewhere between dusty, lo-fi experimental ambient and jangly instrumentals, but recently I've also been delving into the realm of (minimal) techno.
I've recorded a few solo works and have collaborated with Greg Haines, Machinefabriek+Soccer Committee and Mark Versteegen.

Here I'll post the things I collect and some updates/insights on the things I'm working on, have finished, want to do and fail to do...

today I got 6 old Philips tape recorders. Radboud Mens once used them as part of a 50 piece tape loop orchestra which I would have loved to see, but they weren’t of much use to him anymore. And after seeing this he gave them to me, for nothing! He was just glad that they were going to be used again
thank you Radboud Mens!
