H-E-Y!!!  Please REMEMBER that you can order
fantastic Zzaj Productions CD's from our HOMEMADEMUSIC site, at: 

We are in URGENT need of your
support, too, as we were caught in a "lay-off" situation (that was a direct
result of the WTC affair).

Wouldn't hurt (I suppose) if you remind them that the C-mas season is
getting near, & a ZP CD makes a very nice gift for friends who love
adventure in their music(s)

Minimal abstract ambient seems to me a fast but nice formulation to describe Adlib.

Minimal: It isn't ambient as for example Jah Wobbel which baths in to much spheres and layers but it has a constructive 'logical' and repetitive build up. The same repetitiveness as you hears with To Rococo Rot or even maybe Rapoon but without the rhythmic aspect. (They've tried to express that minimalist feeling on the sleeve of the CD but that do not work out well. You can pure things out to the essence but here they keep nothing, it has no power.)

Abstract: Adlib has worked with abstract sounds. No sounds that you can recognise. No spoken parts or sounds of birds or whatever. just pure abstract and no definable sounds.

Ambient: the pieces are as with ambient untouchable hovering parts but the repetitive parts makes them more concrete. You can almost speak of ambient songs.

Ambient isn't my favourite genre but Adlib makes it very interesting. Adlib can bring the hovering sounds to the ground so it becomes concrete. It has not only texture but also structure. Ambient isn't my favourite label yet, but this happily surprised me.

Here's the playlist for the new radio show:

So head on over to and click on the Radio link
to listen.

We've also added two new items to the Aural Innovations mail order catalog:

SubArachnoid Space  A New And Exact Map (2000): Their latest demonstrates
tremendous growth and features expanded instrumentation as keyboards join
SubArachnoid Space's famous cosmic guitars. Long stretched out jams, some
with strong Ozric influences, and a guest appearance from synth maestro
Doug Ferguson (Ohm, Yeti). This is quickly becoming one of my
favorite spacerock releases of 2000.

Mushroom  Compared To What: Mushroom vs. Bundy K. Brown vs. Faust vs. Gary
(2000): New release on GREEN VINYL. Mushroom covers a lot of ground on this
one from totally tripped out jazzy psych jams to bluesy and soulful, but
still cosmic jazz tunes.

For more information on these and other available items go the main Aural
Innovations page and click on the mail order catalog link.



Yeah, our new song, "Pieces" was added to The A Bomb station.  Most
stations are a hodge-podge of discontinuous tunes.  The creator of
this station ordered the songs to give it a great feel and a mellow
flow as you listen to all the songs.

Please check it out and tell me what you think.


 Just in time for the holiday season, Zzaj Productions has a NEW web site!

Please visit, rate our samples, write some reviews for us & tell us what you
think.  Of course, we also hope you'll (actually) purchase an item or two!
News of new releases, views from Zzaj, & music that runs the gamut from ild improvisation (Ernesto Diaz-Infante & Rotcod Zzaj) to thoughtful and timeless solo piano (John Alkins).

It wouldn't hurt our feelings if you told ALL YOUR FRIENDS about this highly independent label, either!   Check it all out at


Check it out now the new millenium killer album "ART BLEEDS"
