Zygomatik


To the question, what is zygomatik?, the artist answered... Zygomatik is a vision; color, glam, glitter, polemic, melodies & protest. But still a vision. Music as a whole aesthetic proposal. Stories codified into lyrics charged of introspective determination. Egoism? Love & hate research as a contradictive matter of impossibility by altruism; experimenting with feelings and thoughts, configuring results into messages.

To the question, what is zygomatik?, the artist answered... Zygomatik is a vision; color, glam, glitter, polemic, melodies & protest. But still a vision. Music as a whole aesthetic proposal. Stories codified into lyrics charged of introspective determination. Egoism? Love & hate research as a contradictive matter of impossibility by altruism; experimenting with feelings and thoughts, configuring results into messages. The nostalgia of past and uncertainties of future, life as theatre. Music is the soundtrack of limbo between tragedy and comedy; the soundtrack of happiness and sadness. Life as theatre. Without any heroes, only victims and victimizers. People who scream, people who listen; but people who share a synthetic & electric passion for noize. Noize made music. And music,... music is life. This is Dann Mecklar's trash and also his anger. His voice; ironic, crude, political but honest. All in one, in a pretty package. Zygomatik is just a pseudonymous identity of the artist; the concept, the image. But not himself, at least, not as human. Maybe a simulation. It's the actor, but also the storyteller. The character, the writer & the singer. As everything, borns in private, dies in public. But the legacy is still intact: his passion. “Gumpop Trash Electro” defines the vision. The way of reconstructing the original idea. The character through different life proofs. Incidental people, accidental situations. The rude context. The external mitigation of subject. Plus the internal analysis of how to scream that you exist! It's not a genre anymore. It became a way of existing. Black & white but rosa, pink or fuchsia, too. You choose. The analogue multi-coloured mini-moog as the fetish. Voice is just a pray to that fetish. The artist, the medium, the painter, but still the singer. It's not a genre anymore. It doesn't describe anything. It is abstract, you cannot touch it. It is the idea. Music & Life are the same thing, and not, at the same time. The name is not important, but the idea. info + bio Zygomatik is a colombian electronic music project that combines a retro-tronique synth-melodic sound with punky-trashy male vocals using also fashion and image as artifact for the eye delight. Lyrics emotionally and sometimes politically charged that recognizes the imminent power of a microphone & the particular way of understanding music, at the service of the message, as a strange mixture of passion, provocation and impulses; are the most important ingredients of this exotic & rare receipt. Zygo is the idol, not the product.

Matik the machinery and weapons to conquer the audience's ears. Began as a concept for defining the collaboration, between young artist and designer Dann Mecklar & producer Federico Goes (ex Estados Alterados), that took place in Medellin City in 2004. Its developement as a project for itself, defining the image of the artist Dann Mecklar in the underground scene of Bogotá and Colombia, occured during 2005 and helped him positioning as one of most important indie artists of latin american scene these days. Lots of performances in the most important electronic clubs of the country, like Cha Cha Club, La Sala, Gotica, Cinema (Bogota), El Deck, Berlin Bar (Medellin); sharing stage with international artists like Boy George, Mount Sims, Felix Da Housecat and Tok Tok vs.

Soffy O or the first EP of the project “I love my Atari” worldwide released in April 2006 under french label Sismic Music; are just the first steps of a project qualified and ready-to seduce other latitudes; teaching the latin-american way of making move feet and shaking asses. “Gumpop Trash Electro” is how Zygo defines his music. Not a style, nor a genre. It's just another way of viewing what happens in this context and re-construct that reality through a personal language as songs.

Obviously as a self projection. Sweet and bitter. Sometimes utopic, others cruel. But always in search of comunicating something: a feeling, a thought, a smile or a lament.

It doesn't matter. Zygo is Dann Mecklar's alter ego, the singer character. Just one side of the artist also complemented by the writer, the model and the designer. A character difficult to ignore. His warm multi-coloured voice is able to transport to another level of understanding; music is joy, dance & entertainment but also the way of telling a story, maybe too auto biographical but impossible to separte from the author.

An author communicating the importance of the message. Maybe too critic? An astonishing voice poisoned with that indie tone evoking Daniel Ash or Roberth Smith but with the shiny personality of Bowie; the polemic words of Bukowski contradicting the fashionable image of a Gaultier's character.
