Coleman Zurkowski’s latest LP is a brilliant meditation on silence. Called ZERO, the work is resplendent in drawn-out brass notes and various ambient hiccups. Featuring an orchestra comprised of harp, clarinet, and piano, it conjures a curious yet ominous aura. If you look at the tracklist, the record counts down from ‘9’, but ‘0’ is far from the end; visual accompaniments include a film by the same name to which this album is actually the score, not to mention he’ll be hosting a release show at Wonders of Nature art gallery in Brooklyn on April 15. He now adds a music video to the mix.
