ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Post-progressive rock; New-edge ambience; Psychedelia with a world-beat flavor; Synths, guitars and percussion; Funky, frenetic jams; Eclectic instrumental soundtracks to surreal multi-media experiences...

Z-Axis calls their style of music "post-progressive" rock, and they have been perfecting and refining it since their formation in 1997. Their traditional prog roots have been filtered through contemporary sensibilities, and augmented with influences ranging from world music to electronica to create a sound that pays homage to the original prog spirit, but isn't mired in the past. Founded by synthesist/composer Allen Welty-Green to perform music he had composed for the multi-media performance art piece, "Reality Check", Z-Axis also features Welty-Green's high-school friend Phillip Hart on a wide range of percussion instruments. Bassist/vocalist Jeff Tyson and guitarist/vocalist Mark Baker round out the line-up with their startlingly original approaches to their respective instruments.

Initially formed to perform the music for the multi-media production Reality Check, Z-Axis soon discovered a unique chemistry and decided to use the band as a vehicle to push the frontiers of their own musical expressions. Their music ranges from structured suites to extended improvisations. They are primarilly instrumental though they have been known to sneak in a vocal piece from time to time. Their shows range from informal jams to elaborate multi-media events.
