Selected electronic setups used by dual electronic Zn'shñ (Elvire Bastendorff & Franck Smith) in 2008-2009 for recording contexts and live performances.

IF POSSIBLE USE HEADPHONES OR CONNECT YOUR COMPUTER TO A QUITE DECENT SOUND-SYSTEM.

N.B.- According to a fictitious etymology, 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 (mulit-instrumentalis/composer Franck Smith and artist/sound-activist Elvire Bastendorff), Zn'shñ deepens some very specific works around digital phonocrafting and noise manufacturing. Designed for public performances and soundtrack production, the répertoire is a suite of sonic equations, graphical sound formulas and audiovisual projects.
