The zZyzx Society is the brainchild of two like-minded half-crazy avant-garde synthesists/composers who at one time or another fell down the same sonic rabbit hole.
Jill Fraser and Peter Grenader first met at California Institute of the Arts in the late seventies studying with Morton Subotnick. They later worked together building synthesizers at Serge Modular Music in Hollywood. Separately they have each had busy and interesting careers infusing electronic experimental music into the collective cultural zeitgeist.
Joining The zZyzx Society on this album is Coil/UUUU synthesist Thighpaulsandra, Tool drummer Danny Carey and instrumental alchemist Chas Smith.
