One Ring Zero: Planets CD Release
"Was enjoying One Ring Zero's album until a track titled "Pluto" came on. What's up with that?"
-Neil deGrasse Tyson Astrophysicist, American Museum of Natural History
"Accordions, organs, theremins, and the occasional brass horn and homemade instrument combine to make soundscapes that are both haunting and entertaining."
-The New Yorker
"gypsy-klezmer circus-flea-cartoon-music you mainly hear in your dreams."
In approaching the hundredth anniversary of Gustav Holst's The Planets, One Ring Zero believed it was time to revisit the solar system. Herewith, therefore, an album of new compositions to capture the splendor and complexity of our celestial neighbors. Yes, Pluto is included!
Tonight, One Ring
Zero celebrates the release of Planets, taking you on a journey though
our solar system. With ORZ's bizarre sounds and instruments, including theremin,
claviola, accordion, the band will embrace their "gypsy-klezmer
circus-flea-cartoon," "lit-rock" sound, while drawing
inspiration from 1970's progressive rock, with nods to Stravinsky, Mahler, and
of course, Gustav Holst.
