AMPERSAND

Zool. stands for alternative music mixing electronic textures and electric guitars. Dubby beats, crispy percussion and melancholic guitars with diverse influences that go from The Shadows, over Boards of Canada and Tortoise to Tinariwen.


Zool. is a monniker of Gerry Vergult, who has a long history in Belgian popmusic, starting out in the early eighties with his band Aroma Di Amore, who already mixed guitars with electronic rhythms. Throughout the years Gerry developped his skills in electronic musicmaking. This resulted in two albums so far: Vadem in 2006 and Camera in 2009.

On his new album ‘Ballroom Blitz’ he mixes electronic music with postrock guitars.

Wat een zonde dat Zool dik vijf jaar heeft gewacht om nog eens van zich te laten horen. ‘Ballroom Blitz’ is een prettige sfeerplaat waarin verfijnde productionele kennis, song-schrijverschap en een duidelijke doe-het-zelf spirit elkaar ontmoeten. (Johan Giglot - Kwadratuur)


I find it difficult to imagine someone not enjoying Zool.

(Christophe Verbiest - Flanders Today)


The use of perfect melodies and harmonic structures makes this album sound hypnotising. The multi-layered opulence of wellsounding details dethrones many ‘intelligent’ electronica albums.

(Johan Giglot - Kwadratuur)


Melodies that slowly seduce with subtle beauty and delicate beats who invite to swing.

(Christophe Verbiest in Humo)


It’s a long time ago since we have been overwhelmed by an album in the style of Arovane and Pole, but Gerry Vergult is a craftsman.

(Toon Staes in Rif Raf)


‘Camera’ is the definitive affirmation of Zool.’s talent.

(Steven Vervaet op Digg.be)


‘Vadem’ is a dark and mysterious piece of work that perfectly fits in the universe of labels as Morr or Warp.

(Dirk Steenhaut in De Morgen)


'Zool makes minimalistic, perfectly tailored listening music. Every effect makes sense and gets the space to prove this. 'Ep One' is a subtle example of intimacy.'

(Koen Van Meel on Kwadratuur)
