Zero Set

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - David Ross Smith
Recorded at Conrad Plank's studio in 1982, Zero Set is a highly percussive affair with Mani Neumeier. The album is saturated in drum and synth rhythms and polyrhythms, resulting in compositions that are energetic and infectious. The opener, "Speed Display," is the granddaddy of them all.
