Hot on the heels of our reissue of Robert Turman's stunning ambient opus "Beyond Painting," comes a journey even further into the past. Recorded between 1985 and 1988 and released on ZORT shortly after, Z.O. Voider is a collaboration between Peter Z.O. and Robert Turman. Perpendicular Groove is their renowned debut release. Much sought-after and only reissued once in 2010 on cassette by our friends at Hanson Records, it is finally available on CD for your convenience.

Rattling clusters of industrial rhythm form the basis for this project, over which are layered an array of homemade metal percussion, brutalized guitar, prepared tapes and phonophone. The lines between these sounds intersect and blur together as each track trudges along to its final destination. From near silence to a roaring gallop, the cyclic momentum in these 11 pieces never fail to disorient and mystify.
