The Ministry Of Inside Things, based in the Philadelphia area, consists of
electric guitarist Art Cohen and synthesist Chuck van Zyl. Considered
the most innovative of electronic musicians in the U.S. today, the members
MoIT are influenced by the early music of Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze
Ra Tempel. Their spacemusic has been described as linear because it
listener across many sonic terrains. Based on improvisation, The
Inside Things creates electronic realizations that flow from theme to
often for two hours at a stretch. Through the use of textures and
as well as harmony, rhythm and melody, the group transports the audience
internal sonic excursion.
Chuck van Zyl has been recording electronic music and performing in public
over 15 years. Van Zyl originally worked under the name Xisle, but is
known for hosting one of the country's most successful radio shows of
music, STAR'S END, for over 20 years. Van Zyl has released two CDs of
spacemusic on the Centaur label, Celestial Mechanics and The Relic. The
Museum with Peter Gulch and D. Andrew Rath was released on the Groove
2001. A collaborative effort with Peter Gulch, Regeneration Mode, was
on their own Synkronos label.
Art Cohen has been pushing the limits of the electric guitar in the studio
in live performance for well over 15 years. He uses processing to
space around his guitar and loops his live sound to create lush layers to
soundworlds of immense depth and beauty.
