about

According to Discogs, Celer (Will Long) has 76 releases, and Machinefabriek (Rutger Zuydervelt) 99. You can add one to both, 'cause Will and Rutger joined forces to create the 7-inch 'Maastunnel/Mt. Mitake'. Originally meeting and performing in Tokyo together in November 2010, the two began a collaboration in October 2011 by sending audio files back and forth. By the end of November, two tracks were completed, constructed from hours of material, 'materializing' the Tokyo-Rotterdam connection.

The artwork was found by Will Long in a nostalgia shop in Jimbocho, Tokyo, the area famous for its many used bookshops, and the sleeve was designed by Rutger Zuydervelt. 'Mt. Mitake' is a mountain to the west of Tokyo, which Will Long climbed on the day between finding the artwork, and finishing the track. The other piece is called 'Maastunnel', named after the tunnel that connects the banks of the Nieuwe Maas in Rotterdam. You'll hear recordings of the tunnel's old wooden escalators, creating a fascinating symphony of squeaks and howls.

'Maastunnel/Mt. Mitake' was created to celebrate the upcoming Celer / Machinefabriek tour of The Netherlands and Belgium in March of 2012.
