 Solo Project

CONTROL-Z Is a sound project by Pandu Hidayat, from Yogyakarta, Indonesia. Established in 2008. This project based on live electronic - experimental music. Focussed on the art of improvisation and fun with live-processing. Apart from the literal meaning, CONTROL-Z could be interpreted as an implicit satire (how lovely if our hearing system could be turned back on a more essential point; details with all its complexity). CONTROL-Z could be symbolized as a sound pollution storage system focused on “the hearing reparation” in the widest conceptual meaning. The execution process of this mission is done in a radical and in a bit extreme way. For instance, is by applying ‘free association writing’ technique as an experimental action. This technique is manifested on almost every fragment that has been recorded successfully.

The spirit is to utilized noisy texture as a material, which is formulated into eclectic, scattered and uncontrolled structure composition; absurd and destructive-like composition with super-aggressive shifting. Sometimes, it’s very monotonous and complex as well as too noisy to handle for the mainstream aesthetic followers. CONTROL-Z shows his existence, sneaking in every event, representing actual issues through up-dated composition in the freedom of expression. And intentionally, rejects the homogeneity culture in produced-composed music in which could destroy the taste of one’s hearing also the loss of balance.

CONTROL-Z was inspired by early electronic-art-music composers, avant-garde or experimental musicians and sound-artists, also noiseartists in the world.  Egocentrism, of course, becomes the main reason for this project. It’s sensible to avoid the restraint in expressing idealism of every free human being.However, actually CONTROL-Z is very flexible and very open to collaborate with bands, live-PAs, sound artists, DJs, instrumentalists or composers. Even, it also collaborates with other art disciplines, like Visual Artists, Performance Artists, VJs, or New Media Artists who have similar concept.

Within 6 years (2008-2014), CONTROL-Z has released four EPs, three full-length albums, two remix albums and several singles for compilation, collaboration, split albums and some remix projects. That’s not for the sake of profit or popularity; but it’s merely for the pleasure for sharing and documenting an achievement; a temporal expressive moment. All released-albums, except albums in CDs, can be downloaded for free, either under labels-netlabels or self-released. On its progress, it emerges Kontroljet Records in 2010, a label that exclusively releases all CONTROL-Z’s tracks either in the physical or digital format. This project is now also known as KONTROLJET
