Two Pale Zeros is an ambient, alternative project, founded in
2011 by Martin Michalek in Detroit, Michigan. The name comes from a line in David Foster Wallace's novel Infinite Jest: "I expend energy on remaining utterly silent in my chair, empty, my eyes two great pale zeros." Michalek is the sole member of the group and oversees all aspects of songwriting, recording, and artistic direction. The intent is for the project to remain holistic and independent of any other band (unlike Lumo the Cosmonaut songs which often become songs for other bands.)
The album has been indefinitely delayed although most of the material is written.
