Radboud Mens

Profile:
Radboud Mens is a sound-artist, composer and sound designer. He started creating noise-machines in 1988. In the early 90s he attached contact mics to dog’s brushes that he used to destroy vinyl records by scratch-playing them, boosting the signal through broken cassette-decks and recording the results. He also made rhythmic-noise using a broken turntable. In 1994 these experiments were released as a two CD set by the British label i under the project names Hyware and Technoise. To achieve the full effect, listeners had to shuffle-mix the two discs together themselves.
From 1997 on he also released music under his own name, music that is more minimal and conceptual. For his CD Radboud Mens - Cl;ck, which was made in 1997/1998, but released two years later, he used digital clicks and errors he collected while cleaning up digital recordings during his stint as a sound engineer at the Centre Of Electronic Music in Amsterdam. Radboud Mens - Pulse, his next CD release, is based on a DSP function called ‘convolution’. He worked on the vocabulary for this CD for two years.

Radboud Mens has worked with a broad variety of sound artists and composers, including Stephan Mathieu, Janek Schaefer and Timeblind, voice-artist Jaap Blonk, guitarist Dan Armstrong (as Fitness Landscape), Michel Banabila, Mark Poysden (as Alignment), Craig Ward (ex-dEUS), and MVK. His music has been released by Staalplaat, Mutek_Rec, Audio.nl, ERS, Bake Records, Noise Museum, Takashi Mobile, Tapu Records and Ash International; both Audio.nl and Vynalogica released some of his minimal-techno as a series of 12” LPs. In live situations he collaborates with video artists such as Marco Douma, Remco Schuurbiers, Bas Van Koolwijk and Jpech. He co-founded the ERS label with Dan Armstrong in 1999, which is dedicated to experimental ambient-noise and drone music; after a break of 10 years, ERS is now active again.
He presented a radio show called Earbitten for the Amsterdam free radio station Radio 100 for sixteen years between 1986 and 2003. He still has a radio show called 230 Volt on the Concertzender in the Netherlands and alternates as the producer of the Staalplaat radio shows on dfm.nu
