Thierry Zaboitzeff — Dr. Zab & His Robotic Strings Orchestra
(Mantra 074, 1992, CD)
by Peter Thelen, Published 1993-10-01Zaboitzeff is the bass guitarist/cellist for Art Zoyd. This solo project shows him in a more electronic setting, as it is done mostly using synths and sequencers. There are 22 tracks of varying length and styles, but firmly in the neo-classical/electronic style. The album is brilliant, and strikes a good balance between melodics and dark Zoydian textures; it's one that tends to grow on the listener, but not one that will alienate on the first listen; in fact this album is sufficiently accessible that even folks who've had problems adapting to the dark and angular worlds of bands like Art Zoid and Univers Zero should have no problem with this.
