Zero Point is the first time I released music that wasn't at least partially my own, and so serves as a milestone in the development of the label. More importantly it's a great album! I met Seofon just before we did a radio interview at KALX here in Berkeley and we hit it off right away. I always enjoy his perspective on music and art, and I think we are both intrigued by the collaborative process. Seofon's talent, commitment and insight shine through on Zero Point, complimenting the strong contributions from some of the most talented ambient artists on the scene.

From the press release:
Zero Point is the product of "recycling" collaborations begun between Vidna Obmana, Steve Roach and Seofon. As the project progressed Stephen Kent, Robert Rich, Not Breathing, and Thermal were included in the circle and the result is a wonderful album full of shifting textures and shimmering ideas. Recycling is a term coined by Vidna Obmana (and Asmus Tietchens) to describe a process more immersive than simple remixing.


"... the talents and contributions on Zero Point combine perfectly to form 'one from many.'" Chuck Van Zyl , Star's End

"In the making of Zero Point: Lessons in being nothing, Seofon has enlisted help from some of the finest experimentalists and jointly achieved lovely abstractions." David Opdyke, AmbiEntrance

"... I find all of it fantastic and breathtaking. Indispensable listening." Phil Derby, Exposé Magazine
