Formatory Apparatus is an Amsterdam based home-taping project by Bence Meijer that started out in 2010 out of the ashes of a previous unknown group. The music consists of fully analog, motorik-synth, minimal wave, home-taping and experiment music. Tracks can vary from synth-pop tunes to synthetic atmospheres to non-music or noise depending on the mood and circumstances.
Aside from producing tracks Bence also DJ’s and organizes concerts and exhibitions with the Amsterdam based arts and music foundation Haperende Mens. Furthermore he runs the music blog and record label “Archaic Inventions” dedicated to deviant and forgotten music from the past and the unknown future.
