This is utopian music in the very best sense, an imaginary space in which sound happens, sometimes with delicacy, sometimes with staggering intensity........ the wonder of Zaum is that every time they produce music of such ineffable lovelines. - Wire Magazine Ltd

Steve Harris's Zaum is music instantly concieved and played by great improvisers. Initially put together by Steve Harris in the Autumn of 2002 to record their first album, the group, which was always intended to involve a shifting number of personnel working together in a variety of music settings, has continued to flourish and develop.

The recent addition of The Penguin Guide To Jazz describes as a masterpiece Zaum's album "Above Our Heads The Sky Splits Open" and awards it their highest accolade. It says of the group: ......the groups music does not follow a hard - line "non-idiomatic course, but explores new sonorities within and against a recognisable instrumental discourse". A Zaum performance is always influx, always trading warmly "organic" sounds against tonalities that are not so much dissonant or alien as uncanny, in the strict and original sense. It is profoundly humane music that communicates at a very deep level.
