TERMINAL HZ “Behind the Signal” CD
[NUX-2011_002] (Japan) / released Feb 2011
“The reprise of a long distance collaboration of long standing, this trio first performed in the mid nineties and has only been able to perform in Australia very rarely over the ensuing years. Comprising 3 innovators in the fields of free improvisation, modern concrete, and brutal, abstracted noise, TERMINAL HZ create an uncompromisingly visceral experience in contemporary sonic possibilities.”

[Review by Ed Pinsent / The Sound Projector] The mighty Z’EV continues his long association with the Japanese heavy-hitter KK Null on Extra Space, Extra Time (BROMBRON 17). 6 tracks of extremely exciting and maximal music, Null’s thrilling and inventive combinations of electronic music played in numerous modes along with Z’EV’s magickal percussive actions. Seasoned professionals both; every second of this lean, sinewy music just exudes assurance and deliberation. Null is in full control of a considerable range of various effects, not one of which is tainted by the curse of over-familiarity, and he seems to be hard-coding his own personality into the very circuits of his devices. Every note of music is stamped with his remorseless attack, even when creating non-noisy ambient musical bursts. Null creates sequenced rhythms and patterns into which Z’EV inserts himself expertly, finding large chambers of space to deliver his machine-like hammerings, executing precise counterpoint rhythms which you or I would never have even discerned within these strange musical fabrics. An essential work!
