Desaturated Life - Chrominance Zero

iTunes store:

Chrominance Zero is a minimal project from Quebec city, Canada. Performing Live with hardware sequencers and synthesizers, it creates a plethora of sounds ranging from electro to drum and bass, always with the same minimalist modus operandi; Distorted analog and punchy sampled drums, a few monophonic tracks, lots of effects and constant sonic mangling and tweaking.

The project was started in 2007 when TB moved to Quebec city and uncovered all of his hardware in the storage and decided to use them back instead of performing with computers

The music can be described as minimal techno, with some hints at groovy house and some deviations towards Drum and Bass

Chrominance Zero is now producing new material, performing it live, and distributing it via bit torrent, youtube and a multitude of online MP3 stores (iTunes, Amazon, DJTunes)
