Avant garde Brooklyn band Zs play Timucua
Zs endeavor to elevate electronic music through classical methodology
Published: March 13, 2013
Due to the interest of local audiophile organizations like the Civic Minded 5, Accidental Music Festival and Tiny Waves, the Orlando date on Zs' tour was actually the impetus for the tour itself. Their set at Timucua will accompany an immersive performance by the UCF Percussion Ensemble, playing Iannis Xenakis' "Persephassa" in a setup attempting to re-create the listening experience close to how it was originally performed: with the audience in the middle and musicians positioned around them in the balconies, on the floor and on stage. Additionally, each member of Zs will perform at Lil' Indies the following night to share their other projects, Diamond Terrifier (Hillmer), Guardian Alien (Fox) and Higgins, who just released his solo album, Stereo. These will be inimitable nights, but it seems we have something to offer the musicians in return.
"One of the first shows that was booked for this tour was the Zs show in Orlando. Things were kind of built around it, actually," Fox says. "I also know that Orlando has really good Vietnamese food. I'm really glad we're going to be there for two days, because I'm going to eat as much pho as I can get."
