Waveform label makes a foray into the land of vocalese with a bright young San Antonio-based talent named Roland St. John Perez, who records under the name Liquid Zen. Liquid Zen offers a touch of goth, but overall is refreshingly contemporary. Three of the tracks, including the opening gem, "Ultraviolet," are typical Waveform fare -- exotic, instrument-based electronic music. The remaining seven tracks bring up hauntingly familiar flavors from the past, occasionally flowing forth with masterful vocals steeped in the same electronic cauldron. Check out Liquid Zen's ongoing and developing synthesis of vocal and electronic music.
