Art Zoyd: Art Zoyd - 44 1⁄2 At A Glance: Selections from the Art Zoyd Box Set

Read "Art Zoyd - 44 1⁄2 At A Glance: Selections from the Art Zoyd Box Set" reviewed by Mark Sullivan


Because France's Art Zoyd was a member of the Rock In Opposition (RIO) movement--a loose confederation of bands making left of center music and subverting the conventions of the music business--they are often characterized as a progressive rock band. But after a brief early period with a standard rock configuration, their instrumentation and musical style came to have more in common with classical New Music: a mix of horns, strings and percussion with the sound of a chamber orchestra.
