NZAMBI is the new synth project from Christopher Cprek, who has also released work under the PAX TITANIA moniker. Christopher uses an arsenal of DIY modular synthesizers. His former projects include Darker Florida with Irene Moon, Auk Theatre with Irene Moon, and as a member of Warmer Milks a few years back. NZAMBI’s debut as a project was in October at Zanzabar, with Regression, Spykes, and others.
PETE FOSCO was born in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1980 and grew up in a suburb on the west side of town. Every day after school he would pillage his dad’s record collection, listen to early ’80s Phil Collins-era Genesis, eat oatmeal raisin cookies and stay up until 4am for no reason. He graduated from the University of Cincinnati’s College-Conservatory of Music in 2004, where he studied digital video and film production and learned how to appreciate fresh guacamole and The Green Manalishi by Fleetwood Mac. He is a self-taught guitarist and started playing out in 2007. He is inspired to live today by the soundtracks from Herzog’s Grizzly Man [by Richard Thompson — ed.], the Flower/Corsano Duo, Fushitsusha, and pot roast and mashed potatoes cooked by his wife Heather. They reside in Covington, Kentucky and live with an English bulldog and mini Italian greyhound.
Brad Rose at Foxy Digitalis recently wrote this about PETE FOSCO’s release Autumn Fire Blues: “Our man in Ohio knows when to hold ’em and when to fold ’em, cuz on Autumn Fire Blues, he’s burning the whole thing into a pile of silken ash. FOSCO just plain rules. His skill in crafting soaring guitar drones is up there with the best of ’em. Autumn Fire Blues takes what he started on last year’s [release] Dust, American Dust and pushes it over the edge and into the abyss. Anchors of bleed drip from the ceiling coating everything in a thick layer of crimson bliss. This is music for the last season. Music for the last days, to see us off into the heavens as they crumble. Pure magic.”
ANDREW WEATHERS is a composer of experimental music. He is currently based in Greensboro, North Carolina, where he studies music composition at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.
