Zero a m m 0 - Temporary Shades Of Gray (2007)

/Post-rock, Avant-rock, Crossover, Modern classical, Spoken word, Electro-acoustic, Chamber music, Art rock, Experimental rock, Ambient/

Comment: Zero a m m 0 is a combo (Mathieu Graveline, Benoit Panneton) from Montréal, Quebec, Canada showing up a distinct sound exploration being so characteristic for the section of Montrèal based music collectives mainly related to Constellation Records.  Indeed, the duo exploits post-rock layers and nowadays sonic manipulation devices to design their sound. More concretely, those guitar based currents are channelized through the algorithm of reverse effect, chord loops, pitch bending and on the other side varicoloured with spoken word snippets and piano keys ranging from stomping to volatile ones. Because all of this this batch of 3 tracks can be considered as a transitional one trudging into the electro-acoustic, ambient and modern classical music territory. Furthermore, there is distinctly represented also interplay between sound and silence, between sonorous de-escalation and growing louder into elemental, noisy peaks. The result is enjoyably consistent and worth of any bit of it.
