A founding member of the original 'Rock In Opposition' [R.I.O.] movement and the inventors of 'chamber rock', Univers Zero are considered one of the greatest avant-garde rock bands of the last 30 years. Originally founded in 1974, Univers Zero are rightly famous for their perfect balance between classical and rock influences, a balance that is shown especially well on Clivages. During their first lifetime, they released Univers Zero (1977), Heresie (1979), Ceux Du Dehors (1981), Crawling Wind (1983), UZED (1984) and Heatwave (1986) until their breakup in 1987. Leader Daniel Denis reformed the band in 1997. In 1999, they released The Hard Quest. Rhythmix followed in 2002 and Implosion was released in 2004. Since 2004, the band has been touring regularly for the first time since 1986. In 2006 they released their first-ever live recording, Live, and an archival release of unheard late 80s recordings, Relaps, followed in 2008. Recommended if you like: Magma, Bela Bartok, Dead Can Dance, King Crimson, Igor Stravinsky, Henry Cow, Frank Zappa.
