Year Zero is the second
album of collaborative work from Apollon/Muslimgauze
and is also Muslimgauze's
last recorded work before he died.
The album uses dark textural soundscapes and cut-ups - the sonic equivalents
of William Burroughs writings - interwoven with experimental electronic
beats and pulse, ranging from mock dub to crunch drum + bass and middle-eastern
patterns and sounds. The dynamic shifts between padded eerie ambience,
full-on electronica and white noise distortions give the listener a
feeling of unease while the concept is unfolding over 15 tracks and
A rare collaborative work from Muslimgauze,
the two artists work with synergy to create a truly remarkable and powerful
album. The album was officially released on 1st January 2000.
