In 1981 Kazuyuki Kishino (KK NULL) studied at Butoh dancer, Min Tanaka's "Mai-Juku" workshop and started performing guitar improvisation in Tokyo, and collaborated with MERZBOW for two years, and joined the band YBO2 (with Tatsuya Yoshida, drummer of RUINS) and started the improvized rock trio ABSOLUT NULL PUNKT (with Seijiro Murayama, the original drummer of Keiji Haino's FUSHITSUSHA).
In the 90's ZENI GEVA released five albums produced by STEVE ALBINI. Also recorded twice for JOHN PEEL SESSION on BBC, and extensively toured throughout Europe, USA, Australia, New Zealand and Japan, playing hundreds of concerts.
All the while, KK NULL has been working on his solo career and has collaborated with other musical innovators from all over the globe such as CHRIS WATSON (UK), Z'EV (USA/UK), JOHN ZORN (USA), FRED FRITH (USA/UK), MATMOS (USA), KEIJI HAINO (Japan), JON ROSE (Australia), PHILIP SAMARTZIS (Australia), ALEXEI BORISOV (Russia), ZBIGNIEW KARKOWSKI (Poland) to name a few, and has been invited to perform at prestigious international festivals. Especially, KK NULL has been invited by GRM (Le Groupe de Recherches Musicales) to perform at Presences Électronique in Paris, France successively 2008 and 2009.
In recent years KK NULL has concentrated his efforts on his solo & collaborative recordings, exploring the outer territories of electronica, creating intense clashing waves of noise, structured electro-acoustic ambience, broken down rhythmics, scattered pitch sculptures and droning isolationist material, which could be described as "cosmic noise maximal/minimalism".
