ZENIAL – ‘Connection Reset by Peer’

It’s Zenial’s first album in 6 years, and it shows his creativity in the context of live
activity. It does not mean that ‘Connection Reset by Peer’ is a live album as such. Yes,
the source material for the record was recorded live during sonic experiments and
creating sound installations over the past few years. The album is not a compilation
though-it’s a well-weighed entity, thematically and sonically coherent. ‘Connection Reset
by Peer’ is a result of interferences of environment sounds based to a large extent on
electricity, radio feedback, electromagnetic field sounds emitted by current generators
and elements of the so-called field recordings.

Album out on 29th of March 2012 released by Zoharum.
