Zetsumetsu is an intermedia project between Flutter (C. Ingaldson) and Zetsumei (N. Dye). With music as the centerpiece, they conjure up a danceable tug of war between soft and abrasive sounds through the use of their custom-built synthesizers and DIY electronics. They are the curators of MOTR (Modular on the Rescue) based in Racine, WI.

Through their hardcore DIY ethic, they have been restoring a 1986 Road Rescue emergency vehicle to deliver a pop-up experimental music experience. Focusing on the concept of impermanence and presence, they capture and release their art while exploring the road less traveled. They feel that culture is increasingly becoming homogenized as consumer technology blurs the lines between artistic expression and influencer-driven capitalism. Without complete abandonment, they consciously withdraw themselves from the perceived notion of community engagement through online social platforms and have chosen to put full stock in creating real connections with real people in the real world, offline.

Our mission is to communicate through art with a sense of urgency.



Modular on the Rescue

MOTR is a pop-up experimental music performance that emerges from an ambulance, outfitted with a synthesizer, and taking place in remote areas. Currently, the synthbulance is going through some repairs before it can travel. Sign up for our newsletter so you can find us on the road. Help us jump-start MOTR!

Hungry Ghosts

by Zetsumetsu

Hungry ghosts suffer an eternal craving that can never be satisfied. We reach for our vices hoping to ease the sense that something is missing.

The recording of this album reasserts Zetsumetsu’s philosophy of presence and impermanence, taken from modular sessions that can never perfectly replicate.

Released January 6, 2019



Available on cassette in our Shop.
