of the latest addition to Zero Times Infinity, the infamous Zipper
Spy. The night was broken into 10 minute performances followed by
20 minute collaborations and finally a Catastrophe
Orchestra like performance featuring everyone. The 10 minute set breezed
through old ideas and new elements rapidly with Zipper
Spy adding to the energy and possibilities. Television, cd-r manipulation
and a metal sheet used for floor protection and percussion were new elements
used in this performance as well as some new visual elements implemented
by Zipper Spy. The 20 minute set
involved a collaborations with Asmodeus
Specter and Plastic Razor Protector and opened the doors for the artists
in every other project to jump in until the noise was reminiscent of the
first Catastrophe Orchestra performance. This
show was very well organized by one David Kirkdorffer and Open FauceT
productions. Zero Times Infinity performers were Deftly-D and Zipper

and participating crowd. Zero Times Infinity performers were Deftly-D

night. Zero Times Infinity performers were Deftly-D and Hex.

Maine Fine Arts Cinema (formerly the old porno theater). One of the best environments
ZTI has experienced yet. Featuring performances by Crank Sturgeon, Beaulieau,
Zipperspy, Sickness, Lesser, The Toneburst
Collective, Flux, Cathode, Mocha, and so many more. Deftly-D was credited
with stage design for the noise side of the show and although performances
by Ennui, Ukuphambana and Nau-Zee-Aun
did not occur as scheduled, the crowd was still satisfied with the most destructive
ZTI performance to date (including the decapitation of a microphone, sparks
shot obliviously into the nearby crowd, and accidental sawing through the line
to the mixing board as part of the equipment casualties). New instruments included
a grinder (first stage use of power tools) and a shopping cart found in the
aisles of the theater. Line up included Hex and Deftly-D. We are hoping to get
video footage from part of this performance.
Sat Jan 16th 1999:
ZERO TIMES INFINITY PUBLIC EXPERIMENT #20. Return to RRRecords. RRRon said this was the
best set he had heard ZTI do to date. An uncut recording of this set is
