Zn'shñ (Elvire Bastendorff & Franck Smith) live at Mudam Luxembourg, Musée d'art moderne Grand-Duc Jean. Recorded December 10th 2008.
Invented and defined by Franck Smith, the term Zn'shñ signifies: the gleam of dark colours. Deliberately antithetic and intentionally enigmatic, Zn'shñ is enthused by Butoh iconography, Japanese Gagaku aesthetic and Tibetan rituals codification. Operating as a dual electronic unit, Zn'shñ deepens a series of very specific works around phonocrafting and noise manufacturing.
