Zerogroove – BEATINGS BROKEN GUITARS VOL.1

BEATINGS BROKEN GUITARS VOL.1

The controversial nature of electric guitar is under investigation again. Electric guitar comes and goes during the last decades of popular music. It comes/worshiped as a revolutionary instrument and goes/ousted as reactionary relic of the past in terms of genre. Zerogroove's unique guitar playing technique and voice-overs construct a revolutionary statement. A statement, which explores the past with a view to the here-and-now. At the same time, the artist pays homage to some of his favorite artists, the very same ones we - at Etched Traumas - love.

Zerogroove's music is a mix between fragments of sounds, silences and broken rhythms. Above all he is a guitarist who's in love with rhythm. Zerogroove's technique has been influenced by Arto Lindsay, David Byrne and Sonic Youth guitar playing. After the initial recording, he structures his work via a process called 'sound-breaking', then he creates rhythm patterns that could be a modulation of white noise, a drum kick, a bass sound or silence used as a 'space rhythm' instrument. Silence is a sound as well for Zerogroove. All his music is played live and nothing is sampled except voices that act as an homage. His objective is to develop a distinct personal style based on dirty sounds as in post-punk bands of the 1980s and concrete and multiform rhythms.

Enjoy!
