About Mono

Montreal's Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra (one of its several names) came to life in 1999 as a project for Godspeed You! Black Emperor member Efrim Menuck in his attempt to learn to score music. The original idea was pushed aside, and the project would go on to become a group setting, and was more in touch with the idea of the organic growth and exploration of music than the heavily composed and arranged theoretical work of Godspeed. Recordings included the albums He Has Left Us Alone But Shafts of Light Sometimes Grace the Corner of Our Rooms... (2000), Horses in the Sky (2005), and Fuck Off Get Free We Pour Light on Everything (2014). ~ Chris True & Thom Jurek
