In 1999 Z.T.Tosha a sound installation artist and producer, founded Pencilbrain, a collective of international artists and musicians. Since that time the collective, the art and the music have all underdone a few changes. The most noteworthy maybe the ‘band’ Pencilbrain that has emerged out of the collective by the same name.
After the success of their first releases; “Follow me” with Massive Attack’s singer Sara Jay and “Central Line South” which was referred to as the sound of urban life, Pencilbrain released their debut album Divrted Witness.
Diverted Witness/ I Want My VCR (live version), like Pencilbrain itself defied the rules of categorizing and simultaneously appeared on charts as diverse as rock and lounge, alternative and jazz. “The music reminds one of an attractive mixture of rock and lounge, alternative and Electro, Hip-Hop and Acid jazz” wrote Julia Schöppner (Translated from the German review).
“Our music has no particle genre or style, It is simply our music, and reflects whatever we are into at the time we make it.” Z.T.Tosha.
