February 23rd there will be a new release by me. Undone. 
It will be released as cassette tape, 3" CD-R and download. 

The tape is almost sold-out so if you want one of those be quick, or else get the 3" CD-R. 
All pre-orders will ship coming Friday.

Just a few more days of sales. 

Help me out getting rid of some stock and make some money for future releases (specially a 7" that I am working on).

Experimental drone music, field-recordings, minimalism and ambient.
Introduction

Amsterdam based musician and trained drummer Sietse van Erve was introduced to electronic music in the early nineties. After playing around with tracker software, he eventually recorded his first music with beats and melodies in 1998, but soon lost interest in both. 
He started researching new sounds and new ways of working – always with an organic touch, including incorporating sounds that would be regarded by others as errors or mistakes, as life isn’t without errors either. Most of his work is improvised, using a laptop and random objects ranging from keyboards, plastic cups being played with a bow, to vocals. The result is an organic lo-fi form of drone and minimal music.
Besides being organic most of the Orphax’s releases are melancholic and even sad. 

Musical influences are Eliane Radigue, Phill Niblock, Catherine Christer Hennix and Kassel Jaeger as well as folk and classical music from India and Tibet, mainly throat and overtone singing.
Besides making music, Sietse van Erve runs Moving Furniture Records and curates concerts at home, at Amsterdam institute STEIM and concert venueOCCII and is involved with SOTU Festival.

Sietse van Erve is a proud user of the audio software AudioMulch and Reaper.
