Born on 28 July 1978 in Apeldoorn (The Netherlands), but now living in Rotterdam,

Rutger Zuydervelt started working as Machinefabriek in 2004. The name (which means ‘machine factory’) was on the façade of a building Rutger passed everytime he went shopping for groceries.

Rutger had some piano and guitar lesson in his youth, but never went to study music. Instead he studied graphic design at the art academy in Arnhem and is still working as a (freelance) designer, combining it with his musical career.

Machinefabriek’s music combines elements of ambient, modern classical, drone, noise and field recordings, to create ‘films without image’. Influences include

Fennesz, Godspeed You! Black Emperor and especially Oren Ambarchi.

After releasing some self released cdr’s, Machinefabriek’s official debut Marijn was issued by Lampse in 2006. Since then a solid stream of singles and albums was released, on labels like Type, 12K, Dekorder, Digitalis and Staalplaat.

Performing live has been an important expression for Machinefabriek. Gigs were played in countries all over the globe, including Russia, Israel, Canada, Switserland, Spain, Chech Republic, Germany, England, and -obviously- The Netherlands.

Lucky to be in a music scene where it’s easy and rewarding to meet fellow musicians, Rutger collaborated (on record, or live) with artists like Ralph Steinbrüchel,

Aaron Martin, Peter Broderick, Frans de Waard, Wouter van Veldhoven, Simon Nabatov, Xela, Simon Scott, Gareth Hardwick and Tim Catlin amongst others.

More and more, Rutger is involved in art projects, like dance pieces, films and sculptures. A path Rutger will be following some more...
