Zone (GB)

Gender: Male
Country: United Kingdom

Zone was formed in 1988, by Andrew Cadmore & Chris Brandrick,
almost alone amongst contemporary Welsh bands to explore the legacy of pioneer and visionary Velvet John Cale. Zone’s eclectic musical influences range from the intense industrial music of Throbbing Gristle, the ambient electronics of Brian Eno & early Tangerine Dream, to the experimental and avant-garde of Karlheinz Stockhausuen, Fred Frith (Henry Cow & Art Bears), Faust, & Can. On occasion gothic, forever ethereal, Zone’s music weaves across time into world music of infinite style and express wholeness.
         Ever since Zone’s formation, Potentia has been the platform and label for all of Zone’s work. Since 1991 Zone’s musical releases have been handled through World Serpent Distribution, until their unfortunate demise in mid 2004.
         Eschewing convention and compromise, always seductive and compassionate, Zone’s isolated and deceptively primitive approach to recording music has in itself become the third mind within Zone, where the whole is far more than the sum of the parts. Zone’s work has always been a passion, never a profession.
