Time Zero is the fourth album from Modulator ESP, originally released as a limited edition of 25 in order to give some music, previously only available as mp3 downloads, a proper physical release. All tracks were recorded as live improvisations between 2003 and 2006.

Tronic Pulse: was a very simple Mellotron flute jam over a simple SH-101 sequence. Equipment used: Roland M-VS1, Roland SH-101, Sequential Prophet 600, Sequential Prophet VS.

Eos Flight: was an improvisation originally recorded to my hard disk recorder sometime in 2005, an extra layer of improvised material was added as it was mixed down on the 6th October 2005. Equipment used: Korg Karma (with MOSS), Korg Wavestation, Sequential Prophet VS, Roland SH-101, Waldorf Microwave XT, Alesis MMT-8, Doepfer Regelwerk.
