Z-arc is the electronica production project of Kris Derry. His music is a careful deployment of analogue-style synths, atmospheric padding and processed beats. Mostly ethereal and melodic, occasionally industrial and gritty, frequently multi-textured.
During the 90's he played live keyboards in a number of pop-rock groups and DJ'd with a battered old MC303 whilst developing his own style of hardware sequencing and arrangements for solo work. These days he's a huge advocate of virtual studio technology, enabling him to finetune and nail down any sonic creation that might have otherwise escaped.
