Percussionist, performance artist, and progenitor of industrial culture, Z’EV segued from fine art into the nascent punk scene of the Seventies and left indelible marks. Formally trained in multicultural musical traditions, Z’EV took to wielding found objects as percussion as he shared bills with outlying bands of the era, such as Factrix and The Screamers. Fixtures of industrial culture in Europe, including Einsturzende Neubaten, along with Survival Research Laboratories in San Francisco and the movement’s journal, Research, emerged in tandem with or under the spell of Z’EV’s thought and practice. In more recent years, Z’EV developed “Cine-cussion,” a technique in which illuminated and projected pools of liquid respond directly to percussive vibrations in the interest of contemplating the physical manifestation of sound. At The Lab (2948 16th St., San Francisco) on Saturday, Z’EV intends to interpolate footage taken of his so-called “wild-style” performances from 1984 as a tribute to the city in which they gestated.
