The music of Ame Zek is constructed from modulation chains to create a platform for building evolving sound structures. “I developed a composing strategy through my learning process of making music.” he explains. Ame Zek has accomplished this by using different modes of modulation in a specified order, defined at it’s basic most character by the use of his own particular techniques.
The result is an evolution of sound structures through modulation, where ever-changing patterns shift in time with common dependencies and autonomous movement. This intricate structure is it’s own character, it is what becomes his music. Ceaselessly focused on the intricacies of oscillating sound, Ame Zek employs an active combination of senses in touch, sight, and listening. Modularities and transformations have become what he describes as his “daily musical and spiritual experience.” Over many years, it is this particular act of creation which holds the greatest interest to Ame Zek.
