ZIA is an exclusively electronic band who began performing on the East Coast in 1992. Founded by Elaine Walker, ZIA bangs out pro-space and sci-fi music on futuristic instruments. All of the synths are triggered live with drum sticks. Microtonal musical scales run rampant throughout the ZIA repertoire. In the pop genre this is a monumental task which adds an eerie, futuristic edge to the songs. ZIA was together for 11 years in Boston and NYC, and relocated to Arizona 2003. ZIA has 4 full length albums and two EPs. The newest release, Drum 'n' Space, is now available (12/19/11 courtesy of Microtonal Records) just in time for the holidays! ZIA is currently developing a rock-opera bearing the same name as the album, complete with a spacey story line!
