Zarathustra soundscapes was the first full-length instrumental album produced by DJ Mace. It’s his premier effort of experimenting with unusual song-structures and breaking with his past of mainly producing for mc’s. The songs on this album (CD) were created between 1998 and 2001 and were mainly made with the help of a Technics turntable, an old keyboard, Akai s2800 sampler and Atari st1040. Some of the scratches were recorded on a Roland digital multi-track recorder. Zarathustra finally resulted in the birth of the sonic-adventure called Fremdkunst and subsequently the start of indie-label Fremdtunes… This is the first time you can download the full original album for free: so go ahead!

January 27nd 2012 the exposition ‘SEE-A-SOUND’ was openend at bkkc, Tilburg. SEE-A-SOUND is an interdisciplinary project in which ten acclaimed autonomous designers and an equal number of talented producers/DJ’s teamed up to produce an exhibition and accompanying vinyl record. The ten serigraphs and musical compositions are on display in the exhibition hall at the bkkc, until April 20, 2012.
DJ’s Mace and Optimus (Fremdkunst/Fremdtunes) will perform for this project at the Paradox(Tilburg, NL) on March 30. They team up with keyplayer Wiboud Burkens and saxophone player Joris Posthumus to do an adventurous impro-show. Designers Boris ‘Delta’ Tellegen and Loulou&Tummie will be showing special work during the performance. Coco Bryce will close the evening with a slamming DJ-set.
