“Trade Ya” (by Silica Gel)
In the 1990's, Chapel Hill, NC had a noted eclectic community of musical experimenters including the audio detournement of the Wifflefist Collective, the diverse crew behind the Transmissions festivals, and the large group improvisations of The Micro-East Collective.
Released in 1999, "Zaum" documents the work of numerous artists working in different genres but who share common histories as well as the geographic space of Chapel Hill. Selections run from improvised rock to electronic noise to jazz to audio ecology.
"This is an excellent compilation of music that makes me wonder why I haven't heard of any of these people before." - Nirav Soni, Ink19
