Ruben Machtelinckx FAERGE Vinyl Record
Musicians Ruben Machtelinckx - guitar Hilmar Jensson - guitar Joachim Badenhorst - saxophone & clarinets Nathan Wouters - double bass About Earlier this year, guitarist / composer Ruben Machtelinckx recorded his debut album, 'Faerge', in Copenhagen. The music is played by guitarists Ruben Machtelinckx and Hilmar Jensson, Joachim Badenhorst on reeds and Nathan Wouters on double bass. These atypical occupation produces a distinctive and soothing sound. Strong melodies and earthy progressions form the basis of the compositions that often have a melancholic undertone. The music consists of atmospheric, warm, poetic sounds, and allows the individuality of each musician to come forward. The emphasis is on the sound texture and homogeneity of the music, which among other things means that the musicians think as more composers than as solo act. 'A truly beautiful and warm sounding collection of songs from the heart.' Jakob Bro, October 2012 Recorded in April and August 2012 at Village studio- Copenhagen, Denmark by John Fornsgaard Mix & Mastering: John Formsgaard Production: Ruben Machtelinckx & Rogé Verstraete Artwork: Koen van den Broek Design: Robin Foesters & Koen van den Broek As a freelance musician, Ruben performed together with fellow musicians such as Teun Verbruggen, Kris Defoort, Quinsin Nachoff, Joachim Badenhorst, Erwin Vann, Bart Maris, Kurt Van Herck, Peter Evans, Iva Bittova, Hilmar Jensson, Chris Joris,... In August 2010, Ruben performed on the international jazz festival 'Jazz Middelheim' with 'Le Pragmatisme du barman', a new band coached by New York trumpeter Peter Evans. He was the leader of the band 'Phynt' with Erwin Vann. He currently plays and composes for Amydala (Kurt Van Herck/ Nathan Wouters) and a duo with guitarist Karl Van Deun. In 2012 he went to Copenhagen to take some lessons with Jakob Bro and to record his first album as leader with Hilmar Jensson, Joachim Badenhorst and Nathan Wouters. (EL Negocito Records). He is an active musician in different side projects ranging from impro to pop. 'een opmerkelijk volwassen plaat' (...) 'De elegante en melodieuze composities die deze jonge gitarist aflevert, bezitten een grote verleidingskracht: geen al te abstracte themas hier, maar vaak meezingbare liedjes hymnes, bijna. Ze worden met wisselende intensiteit gespeeld door een ongebruikelijke bezetting van twee elektrische gitaren (Machtelinckx en Hilmar Jensson), klarinet of saxofoon (alweer een prachtige Joachim Badenhorst) en contrabas (Nathan Wouters). Na meerdere beluisteringen wordt duidelijk hoe strak gemillimeterd en vol uitgekiende spanning de op het eerste gehoor getemperde en meanderende muziek van dit kwartet wel is.' (****) Frederik Goossens, Focus Knack, p.49, 16.01.2013 ''Ladakh' is een speelse opener, maar meestal trekt de muziek traag voorbij. Machtelinckx creëert een soort kamerjazz vol verleidelijke kleuren. Met vrije improvisatie en effecten zoals op 'Zeilen, heuvels' belanden we in een soundscape die overgaat in alweer een pakkende melodie. Faerge neemt je mee op een melancholieke reis langs landschappen die zowel in IJsland als de VS kunnen liggen. Machtelinckx mijmert, hunkert en vindt knappe instrumentencombinaties.' (***) Karel Van Keymeulen, De Standaard, p.c17, 12.01.2013 'Een Belgisch-IJslands kwartet met als centrale man gitaristcomponist Ruben Machtelinckx en verder nog saxofonist-klarinettist Joachim Badenhorst, bassist Nathan Wouters en de IJslandse gitarist Hilmar Jensson. Hun debuut, 'Faerge' (veerboot in het Deens), is een rustige trip op zilte binnenwateren ergens in het hoge noorden. Je ziet zo de landschappen, al dan niet in mist gehuld, aan je oog voorbij trekken. Dit is muziek met een zeer hoog poëtisch karakter en sterk filmische inslag. Machtelinckx en Jensson bewijzen dat de combinatie van twee gitaren niet altijd tot decibel (rock) leidt, integendeel. Badenhorst kleurt heel subtiel alles in terwijl Wouters voor de afwerking met een klare lijn zorgt. Prachtig uitgegeven op vinyl met kunstwerk van Koen van den Broek. Je krijgt er de CD bij met twee extra tracks.
