Zhaoze's brand new album in 2018 - “Birds Contending”. It's consist of only one song which lasts more than 40 minutes. One track is equal to the capacity of an full-length album.

“Birds Contending” was mainly recorded in a forest in Zottegem, Belgium, and so even birds singing can be heard now and then in the music.
