Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"Originally from Olympia, Washington (USA), lives in Brussels (BE). His elegantly orchestrated pop compositions and jingles, take you into his colorful and wild universe inhabited by bearded clouds, trees, and spirits. His music is personal and refined, rich and essential, of a strangy beauty. Frequent collaborator with groups like Maher Shalal Hash Baz, Microphones & Tenniscoats, Zicmuse has been invited as a guest bassoonist by Mt. Eerie, Chris Cohen, Félicia Atkinson, Club des Chats, Congotronics vs Rockers (Deerhoof, Konono No.1, et al.). This is the CD version of the limited edition LP version of the work called: "Version d'un ouvrage traduit", featuring six bonus tracks not found on the LP. File under: orchestrated folk, mini songs, odd, all the soft tones you wish you had."-Music A La Coque
