What is The Zen Bicycle Band music?
It’s a freeform flowing stream of connectivity between three individual players created entirely spontaneous in a similar manner to the Japanese art of calligraphy Shodo – ‘Direct Deed’ where after much meditation and with one stroke of the brush ideograms are formed. In the case of the Zen Bicycle Band the ego nature of the performers is made quiet. They connect with the audience, in harmony and also directly to the source of imagination and inspiration. Every performance is unique to that moment of creation.
Whatever we might try to describe the music as being, then it is probably what it isn’t… you are the ones to decide!
