ZGT has created sound installations, music for dance and multimedia performances and soundtracks among their many recording projects and live sets.

For these fall 2010 performances ZGT will be presenting audio visual improvisations and compositions featuring Russian VJ Yuri Elik. Generating waves of improvisation exploring atmospheric sonic spaces and the limits of their chosen instruments of expression, ZGT is striving always towards a tangible transcendent experience through sound. Their music has been described as both strangely transportive and deeply psychedelic.

His work has been featured in productions by Maurice Bejart and films by Wim Wenders, and resulted in his appearing with Jean Michel Basquiat in the Andy Warhol produced film "Downtown 81". Besides a number of critically acclaimed solo albums, he has coproduced art videos which have played from the Kitchen in NY to the Rijksarchive in Amsterdam. He has perfomed in venues across the spectrum from the Pompidou Centre in Paris to the Issue Project Room in Brooklyn.
