Founded: April 2005
Location: Nijmegen, Netherlands
a soundarchitect from Holland.
Works with found sounds, voices,fieldrecordings, live wavs and midi's and mixes them in his own cross-rhythmic way.
First releases on the Musictrade Netlabel in 2005 on the MT003 (Norberg 2005 Field Mixes) on the MT005 (Requiems for a Submerged City), a New Orleans tribute album, and the recent MT010 (Ice Mustard). .
Developing since then with influences from classic masterpieces towards more ambient, drone-like pieces that try to capture the full complexity of silence, as well as more rhythmic experimental pieces that try to shift yer mood rather than move yer feet.
Recently started some collaborations, where the songs with Justbase were released february 2007. In the mean time Ancient Species and JamatriX are released.
"This musical travel agency is specialized in surprise destinations" my friend Doc says in one of his reviews, and KraftiM is honoured with this qualification. Circling around but still getting further like a friendly tornado that hopes to touch you gently on its way....
Later regularly releases come on Jamendo and t61, production keeps growing, and collaborations are evolving.
Glad to hear from you...
