Live performance during Test Tone 61: Intersecting Streams of Consciousness @ SuperDeluxe, Tokyo, Japan (Recorded September 14th, 2010). Featuring: Zn'shñ (electronics) + À qui avec Gabriel (accordion) + Cal Lyall (hydrophone)

—Notes from official program—

Specializing in electronics, French artists Zn'shñ (aka Franck Smith & Elvire Bastendorff) creates expansive soundscapes of the highest order. Under the Odiolorgnette imprint, Zn'shñ has produced albums and soundtracks steeped in minimalist sensibility, influenced by artists such as Ryoji Ikeda and butoh legend Hijikata Tatsumi...

[here] Zn'shñ's sound artistry meets with the sublime accordion playing of À qui avec Gabriel, a Tzadik recording artist with a string of successful collaborations under her belt — joined by improvising artist Cal Lyall, who creates watery ambiances using effected hydrophones (underwater microphones) submerged in strange and hypnotic water sources. * Visuals & projections by Onnacodomo (DJ Codomo, Yasuko Seki and Ruka Noguchi).
