about

Richmond, Virginia’s Timothy Hawks performs as ambient instrumentalist ZDJ. Hawks originally began making music in various punk and metal bands, and continues to do so in the gothic-punk band Horse Culture (also on Furious Hooves). His lifelong interest in meditative drone and ambient music led him to experiment with the creation of guitar-based soundscapes early in his writing processes. Hawks began seeking solo shows and releasing drone-sketches to his personal SoundCloud in 2015.

In mid-2018, limited run tape label, Furious Hooves, approached Hawks about releasing an album of solo material. Recording sessions from March to August 2019 in the mountains of Southwest Virginia led to this release, 'Heliopause'.

'Heliopause' is Hawks’ first release as ZDJ. It explores sounds and textures ideal for grounded contemplation. The album is as much influenced by stories of and experiments with occult rituals as it is by ambient and experimental artists Dedekind Cut, Chihei Hatakeyama, Kelly Moran, and William Basinski - as impacted by space exploration as it is by meditation and internal knowledge - 'Heliopause' is a fractal representing the magnificently grandiose infinity of the tangible and the spiritual.
