Interview by Gary Hill
Music Street Journal: Univers Zero has been around for quite some time. How have things changed over the years?
Daniel Denis: The group has existed now for thirty-two years.
The music of UZ evolved through the changes in personnel. For my own part,
I also learned a lot from outside the group, and over the years discovered
other sources of inspiration. For instance, my seven-year stint with Art
Zoyd was very fruitful, for instance learning to use the sampling technology
which that group fully mastered.
Music Street Journal: If you had to pick one album or one song that really typifies Univers Zero better than any other, what would it be?
Daniel Denis: That's difficult to say, because every album, every period or line-up was important in its own way. In all humility, it's a bit like taking away one of H.P. Lovecraft's novels from his complete works. Something would be missing.
