Univers Zero Quotes
The name comes from a collection of stories by a Belgian author, Jacques Sternderg; they are not really science fiction stories, but they are more similar to science fiction than fantasy.
I have to admit that for a long time it had been my intention to release an album under the name Univers Zero. I think that the initial impulse was the fact that one day Michel Berckmans called me and asked me to work together again (without making any reference to Univers Zero). I've always believed that Michel, with his use of the instruments that he played, was a big part of the sound of Univers Zero in their early period. This was a crucial factor for me to compose again for those acoustic instruments and to find again the atmosphere of the group in its early period, while adding to it, from time to time, some elements of sampled sounds. At the time when there had been an attempt made to reform Univers Zero - this was in 1996, together with Segers and Kirk - I came to the conclusion that we were following a wrong path, and that that line-up had been assembled in a way that was too superficial. That group was not the real Univers Zero. So I chose to stop everything after only one concert - the one that took place at the Victoriaville Festival, in Canada.
