Temporary Super Offer! The music on this CD is an impressive document of such a search for meaning and artistic legitimacy. It doesn’t want to add something even louder to the supposedly spectacular. On the contrary: Here, it is about the subtle intimacy and emotionality of human relationships, about breathing as one. It is about being interested in each other beyond ever new superlatives. This is where the unobtrusive authenticity of this music comes from, what makes it special and thoughtful. (Ulrich Steinmetzger) "Meta Zero’s music is art from the here and now ‒ and not made to portray the neoliberal drivel but to create a meta world and invite people to explore it. Here they see a function of art in an increasingly fragmented society: to create plausible images for environments and circumstances we live in rather than playing up to the audience. Today’s communication patterns are a test of one’s patience. If you want to do something about it, you can only convince with conviction. If you only pretend to be authentic, the audience’s attention crumbles immediately. This band is on its way to formulate its response." - Ulrich Steinmetzger
