We are now beyond out-of-the-basement. ZS has been out on the road hard for the past year, with two successful tours of the US and Canda, as well as an amazing journey to Japan this past January and all across Europe in April/May. We've been hard at work, developing new material and collaborating with our friends DJ Rupture (Ecstatic Music Festival), the Mivos Quartet (Issue Project Room), and Mantra Percussion (First Prepysterian, BK). We've got a new record, the GRAIN EP, out now on Northern-Spy Records, and ya'll can be on the look-out for our new full-length of the current live set sometime in the near future....!
We love you cats! YOU ARE ALL IN OUR BAND!
Zs was founded in 2000 and has existed as a trio, sextet, and quartet, now solidifying into the trio formation of Sam Hillmer, Patrick Higgins, and Greg Fox. While our music has been variously categorized as no-wave, brutal-prog, and post-minimalist, Zs is primarily concerned with making music that challenges the physical and mental limitations of both performer and listener. Manipulating extended technique, unique instrumental synthesis, and near telepathic communication, Zs aims to create works that envelop the listener and unfold sonically over time, evoking unspoken past, present, and future rites and ritual.
