Following their maxi CD »Tinnitus Vu« on Touch in 2004 »Tocsin« is the first full lenght album produced together by these two renowned sound artists. Whereas »Tinnitus VU« was mostly the result of Z'EV reworking material by Jackman, »Tocsin« is the result of the artists agreeing to meet and work together in the studio. They created and recorded sounds from a piano (which can be found at RMS Studios London) and a stainless steel instrument (built by Z'ev circa 1989), over the course of several hours. They then took the recordings home, and after a period of each one mixing these sounds by themselves came up with what can be heard on this CD. Two distinct sets of work which formed this multilayered and fascinating album.
