ZEBULARIN is an ever-changing and shapeshifting instrumental collective hailing from Stuttgart.

Besides the mutual interest in improvisation, science, alchemy and the social implications of music, all of its members have different and sometimes even diverging musical backgrounds rooted in ambient, jazz, noise, classical music, postrock or freeform electronics.

There is no focus on a specific genre or aesthetic whatsoever, but rather on the constant interplay of tension and release as an intuitive playground of joined forces. Sounds are prone to aggregation and coagulation, structures pile up and explode/implode, deteriorate and vanish. Sometimes they reappear. Uneventfullness and density are always interconnected. Openness is the key.

"It’s an album that yields more and more with each listen. You’ll want to play it about five times to start getting the full effect."
- Nick Roseblade for Vital Weekly.

"The Stuttgart collective is adroit at the noisy end of the experimental spectrum, but they don’t shy away from pulling back into a minimalist approach here and there. Far from being a freeform freakout and letting walls upon walls of noise crush you, Strangled Curiosity is more intimate, as the title suggests, opting to toss you about like a cat does a mouse before finally making you its prey."
- Ryan for Cassette Gods
