about

Ziggy Zeitgeist has become a staple of the Australian Music scene. Touring and recording with Melbourne Nu-Soul/ future-jazz collective, ‘30/70’ has enabled Zeitgeist to forge new frontiers in improvisation and drum-set application. Zeitgeist has stepped up to the role of bandleader in the debut self-titled album Zeitgeist Freedom Energy Exchange.

The vision of this project was to create a live band experience that is closely aligned with an extended DJ set, heavily influenced by club culture and transformative festivals where people seek a more transcendent experience- a continuous odyssey, sound and groove with the spirit of live improvisa- tion. The main influences for this project include house, broken beat, and a good dose of 70’s jazz-funk in order to create a unique and cosmic pocket.

Zeitgeist: The spirit of the time. That is, we are only a product of our own zeitgeist. At the same time we create our own zeitgeist. This is an exploration into contemporary music whilst always digging deeper into the wealth of forward thinking artists, musicians and activists who have come before us and continue to inspire.

Freedom is the liberation of the self. Breaking down the shackles of form and concept to manifest the ultimate dimension of reality. The Energy Exchange is the universal synergy, which effortlessly binds us all to eternity tapping into the exchange is the realization of interdependence. The more we can give, the more capacity we have to receive. This is scarcely more evident than in the age-old communication between musician and dancer.

The process for this record entailed writing sparse rhythmic and harmonic figures that imply a kind of groove and tonality without restricting the expression and trajectory of the group improvisation. These parameters were used to inspire the musicians in a way that allows personal expression whilst still maintaining strong group cohesion.

The making of this album has been an exploration of instrumental music as a vehicle of spiritual discovery, and finding a working balance of composed and improvised material. Freedom Energy Exchange is about creating new directions in dance music culture where people come to hear new music and find new ways to express themselves, new ways to move, new ways to make love.
