12z is a collective building music structures through electroacoustic improvisation. As pure improvisors, Bálint Szabó and Márton Kristóf have constructed a substantial body of work, including film scores, studio recordings, and a significant archive of weekly improvised jams. Their latest release ‘Free Fall Inspirations’ – out on Nicolas Jaar‘s imprint Other People – marks a significant shift in 12z’s work, being their first entirely electronic recording. Their first vinyl release ‘Trembling Air’ will be out in January 2016 on Other People.
