Eric Zann is an alias of electronic musician Jim Jupp (along with Belbury Poly). Jupp's releases are on the Ghost Box Music label, ofwhich he is a co-founder. The name references a minor H. P. Lovecraft short story, The Music of Erich Zann.
Eric Zann's sound:
Zann's sound is deliberately darker and more Gothic than other Ghost Box artists, containing elements of Hammer Horror soundtracks, ambient music and drones; in Jupp's words, it contains references to "crows, church bells, magic spells and other horror signifiers".
