Blending the cosmic energies of Nu-jazz with modern rock sensibilities and live eletronic devices, the music of the Wrong Object is influenced by a vast array of artists ranging from Canterbury Scene prog rock à la Soft Machine and Gong to Squarepusher, Béla Bartok, Amon Tobin, Aka Moon, Charlie Mingus and Frank Zappa. While their repertoire contains mainly original compositions, they also play a special set of Zappa covers on demand. The group was formed in 2002 by guitarist Michel Delville and has featured a variety of other members.
