Hello Girlz of Zaetar. I've been known to lie awake nights wondering what music would exist between a sex-crazed Sly, a meditative Femi Kuti and a drawling Captain Beefheart!! And here you are out of the blue! Thank you so much for allowing me now to sleep at night! I enjoy your fun energy. Thanks for the invite. Be well, -- Paul Kabotie Native American Art, Forum, Artists, Art Shows, Culture, History Ken O'Gorman

Greetings Girlz, and welcome to DarryVille and thanks for the unity, thats all nice,i hope all is well and jiggy for you and yours,you have some interesting crazy ass music there,made me smile a while. ciao for now and keep bouncing ; ) DJ COLOR

Nice vibes! keep in touch colorz!!!!!!!!!! Weird concept. Rewarding result.

With a 23 person line-up, Girlz of Zaetar exists somewhere in-between a sex-crazed Sly, a meditative Femi Kuti and a drawling Captain Beefheart, creating music that is at once excruciatingly pretentious and wonderfully listenable. The 35-minute-long "Gods" is so commercially suicidal it's beautiful. Even musically, after its first few faltering steps, it proves to be a wonderful track; a gliding chant that extends above and beyond itself to end up in some absurd Hindi love parade.

The three subsequent tracks are much shorter (both in length and inscope), and fail to engage on the same level -- although they do prove the band's musical diversity and ability to maintain interest. In a musical field where too many acts tend to end up in dead-end jams, Girlz of Zaetar use their musical abilities to communicate with their audience. Fear of Rehearsal is a wonderful testament to this free, generous spirit, and is as spontaneous as its title suggests.- Stein Haukland - ink19.com

Guys, you are absolute geniuses! The best ways for me to get detached from stress are the good ol' ones: sex, drinking and music, but after the 1st listen to this EP of 51 minutes I don't know if I was better, I just felt different ever from before; it's one of those experiences changing my life, like a heavy surgical operation with partial anaesthesia or the watching of the "Guinea Pig" series. Described as sexy synth band from another planet with never the same sound at any given moment playing urban jungle musick, I would say that this is totally ad-libbed music crossing Hindu chanting and TRUE psychedelic records of the 60's played at the wrong speed; yeah, a sax comes and goes on a rhythm based on percussions and chanting reminding me of some middle-USA sects using snakes to prove their faith to God. In the long "Gods" (35 minutes) there're several noises and rare guitars; it's hard to explain it, especially when this shock chakra kundalini ecstasy music is made by 23 people with the help of possessed strangers from the audience spontaneously joining! Ghostly opera vocals, noises, effects and much much more; the top is reached in "Lahasa", a dynamic wacky song I can't stop playing over and over. Guys, you are absolute geniuses! Is this the true art music? Or yoga rock? And in the end, who cares? Let's enjoy this spiritual poetry with 7 bass players alternating and have an acid trip without paying the consequences of the aftermath of a (write here your fave drug) addiction. Now, who dares ta say hippies' spirit's dead? - MARKUS GANZHERRLICH - Rock Metal Bands

jam band with a psychedelic twist Reviewer: Cheryl A jam band with a psychedelic twist - primal, spacey, ethereal, rock/jazz from another dimension. Cool and fresh.

Sounds interesting, in an interesting way. Reviewer: Ian Koss - Ink19 Sounds interesting, in an interesting way.

Sounding very interesting there! Reviewer: The Exclusive Fanzine - Matt Sounding very interesting there!

(Sun Ra-ish) Reviewer: Michael.Davis, WUSM-General Manager You have some interesting ideas at work here (Sun Ra-ish)

Girlz of Zaetar’s Fear of Rehearsal is experimental, avant-garde, electronic, ambient, jazz very reminiscent of Miles Davis’ revolutionary 1970s creative leap to electric instruments on such albums as Bitches’ Brew music that defined what came to be called fusion. The centerpiece of this twenty-three piece collective’s album is the first track, Gods, a 35-minute, meandering sonic landscape that uses as its artistic palette tenor saxophone, electronic noise, guitar, percussion, bass, and non-distinct human voices that at times sing, talk, and scream. The saxophone solos are very well played, with great fast-paced runs and layers of sax noise provided by the multi-player horn section. This instrument is especially well utilized in the second track, Lahasa, with a great squeaky, squonky sax riff that repeats over disjointed percussion and ambient noise before the rhythm section begins to kick a groove. The highlight of the entire outing is “Full Moon,” a slow, hypnotic meditation with great groovy percussion and bass. - Matt Sherman - LEFT OFF THE DIAL

Artist Statement

I can remember once when I was younger being at a fair and enjoying doing spin art where you would pour and drip paint on spinningpaper. I loved that concept: putting the art in God's hands; randombeauty with lots of colors and energy.

Throwing paint is a spiritual, ethereal, cathartic, kinetic experience for me. When I paint I find myself in a state of ecstasy, constantly praying and meditating. I enter a hypnotic trance, a dynamic involvement in the creation - a unique, spontaneous, and unrepeatable event.

I become infused with the same spirit I imagine Jackson Pollock tapped into, except I use DayGlo colors and reflect the energy of the times I live in.

Pollock observed, "The modern painter cannot express his age, the airplane, the atom bomb, the radio, in the old forms of the Renaissance or of any other past culture. Each age finds its own technique".

There are so many possibilities to explore in throwing DayGlo paint: the various color combinations, the types of effects used, the amount of paint, the speed, angle, force of the throw etc. It is an ongoing process and a journey that never ends, an unlimited, expanding universe of magical serendipity (quantum theory at its best).

This work is also partly inspired by the M-theory (the theory of everything ushered in by Edward Witten). The paintings represent the tenth dimension string theory, which states there is a parallel universe. M-theory also states that when two or more different tenth dimension membranes collided they created the Big Bang and our whole expanding universe. The globs of paint in my paintings can theoretically represent these different membranes. They are images of the moment right before the Big Bang with black light/white light parallel universes. Our reality=white light / black light represents the tenth dimension parallel universe.

Paintings can be viewed in black light, as well as white light, and can be hung in four ways. In a coming show of my art, the gallery owner plans to show the art 5 minutes with black light and 5 minutes in regular light, or have an interactive switch so people can switch between the two different light effects themselves.

It pleases me to know that my art has the ability to make people happy. My art is a manifestation of my energy and consciousness.

TOM ZATAR KAY
TOSSES HIS FATE -- AND HIS PAINT -- TO THE WINDS

Written by: Daniel Bush,
Kingston Times - Ulster Publishing

Excerpts

"I can throw paint on anything," said artist Tom Zatar Kay, " and I know what I'm doing." Throw painting is a wild, uninhibited, and spontaneous yet also controlled and carefully executed style of art. It is produced when the artist, using a sort of a brush-like tool, literally throws his paint onto the canvas. This unique method, said Kay, is similar but not identical to Jackson Pollock's famous drip painting style.

He is an unbelievably energetic and enthusiastic man and also extremely friendly, outgoing and one of the nicest people you'll meet.

In a video that was made of Kay throw painting, he does seem to personify the vision of a wacky, eclectic, super-fast-paced 21st century Pollock: wearing a bright pink hat, jeans, and a cut-off tie-dye shirt, music from George Clinton and the P-Funk All Stars playing loudly in the background, Kay dips a shish kebab skewer into a tube of his day-glo paint and with lightening quick, continual whips of his arm throws streak after streak of paint onto the canvas. The canvas he paints on in the video is not tacked to the floor, but suspended from the ceiling, at about waist level. As Kay throws paint on it, he keeps it in a perpetual spinning motion. This represents another deviance from what Kay calls Pollock's "flat throw" style of dripping paint over a canvas that lies flat on the floor. When paint is applied to a spinning, rather than a stationary canvas, Kay said, a completely new and different effect is created.

But in order to be successful at it, according to Kay, a person needs to have two crucial talents: creative freedom, and artistic skill. Luckily for Kay, he possesses both in abundance. "I'm aware of what I'm doing as I'm doing it," said Kay. "Its not haphazard craziness, there's a purpose to it."
