Creating contemporary art music for the modern century.
We believe that improvisation is at the heart of a new musical paradigm that uniquely reflects contemporary life. The spontaneous interactions of improvised music and spoken word dissolves the boundaries that exist between performer and listener, providing access to the transcendent dimensions of creative experience. An experience that shifts as the simple act of observing affects the reality of the moment to create a collective 'consciousness'.
From the hole in the wall 'Stone' in NYC's lower east side to the Avant-Garde Vision Festival to the Electronic Bent Fest...from Cecil Taylor to Chuck Berry to hoofer Honey Coles, the ZenBeatz create a fusion of music genres and improvisation that transcend the expected.
