Oyaarss has uploaded part of a concert he played last week-end in his native Latvia has been put online, mentionning that it might give an indication as to how his upcoming, third album might sound like.
This 18-minute long recording might be on Youtube, but don't be misguided: there is nothing to watch here, but only to listen. It is also an un-mixed, un-mastered, live recording, but should still provide a broad idea as to the direction the follow-up to "Smaida Greizi Nakamiba" and "Bads" might go.
Below is a video this artist has made official today, for a new track called "Salvatore" which, if we understood it right, is meant to appear on a compilation project in the coming months. As usual with Oyaarss, this is a very intense, emotional, heavy and raw piece. It is worth mentionning that it also features vocals by Colin H. Van Eeckhout, known for being the singer of the Belgian band Amenra.
A longer video we had found online of Stavros Gasparatos and his musicians performing his "Seven" album (adn170) live in Piraeus has sadly been taken offline. However, this musician has himself uploaded a shorter but higher-quality video out-take of the "Seven" live-premiere, performed at the Onassis Cultural Center in Athens in December 2013.
Above is a nice new video interview with Stavros Gasparatos, shot for the Love Greece website (which has an article about this composer here), in which he talks about his beginnings, his "Seven" album for Ad Noiseam, and his ambitious coming project for EMPAC.
You are on the internet right now, though, and Monolog is now only a click away, with no less than two different sets made available today, recorded in two very distinct context.
The first is last week's episode of Future Music's Stalker Radio show (run by Swarm Intelligence and Rory St John), which features a full Monolog set in its second half and can be listened to here or below.
Monolog's second set today is a full recording of his show in Paris last week. It's hard, cold, and something particular for this music, recorded genuinely live. You can hear the audience, the claps, the excitement, and get an overall feeling of this show's vibe. The photo above, by Ehoarn Bidault, was taken at this gig.
Click happy, enjoy, check "2 Dots Left", and see you at Monolog's shows if you are in Leipzig or Berlin these days.
