Rutger Zuydervelt with Ilia Belorukov and Rene Aquarius - The Red Soul [Sofa Music]

Released via the Norwegian imprint Sofa Music is "The Red Soul", the most recent album by the prolific Rutger Zuydervelt, also known for his work under the name Machinefabrik, who has been teaming up with Ilia Belorukov and Rene Aquarius to create a soundtrack for Jessica Gorter's documentary of the same name, dealing with the Russian relationship with and towards the Stalin-regime. Based on and upon samples taken from an old Stalin speech and some other Soviet relicts on vinyl as a basic sample source source the three artists create a soundscape deep, yet calm and far from being overly dramatic in their 14 tracks spanning score, touching borders of decomposed, decaying (Neo)Classical elements, Clicks'n'Cuts, crackling surface noise and of course Ambient music which works well on its own for collectors and die-hard fans of the genre but might even turn out to be better when rolling along the visual material it was initially made for.
