Ambient Chamber Jazz Duo O'R.P Release "Akbé/Animé"

"Akbé/Animé", our first full-length release, will be available as a digital album and on audio CD on November 24th, 2017.

The album documents the earliest phase of our musical project and showcases our melodic and sparse blend of ambient chamber jazz in an immediate and near-live setting. We started recording our rehearsals in March 2017 and have since then always kept the recorder running during our sessions. This has left us with a huge digital archive of attempts, sketches, weird noise and decent tracks. At one point we felt that the best of these tracks were actually good enough to be released, so we selected eight of them for this album. You find them here largely as they were recorded, with no overdubs and only minimal editing. There may be a few rough edges, and we realize that the sound is not always exactly hi-fi, but the rawness found here has an immediacy and urgency that we could never quite re-create in a studio setting. Consider this a live album of sorts.

Track titles:
1. Akbé, 2. Cryo #3, 3. Alma, 4. Animé_12, 5. Andaï, 6. Cluster, 7. Thomas. 8. Unthought.

The album will be available digitally via iTunes, Google Play, Spotify and other digital music sites. A limited edition audio CD can be ordered directly from our Bandcamp page at http://o-r-p.bandcamp.com. The CD comes in a 6-sided colour digisleeve with photographs by Mig and is limited to 100 copies.

O'R.P is an ambient chamber jazz ensemble featuring Mig O'Rourke (electric cello) and Horst Prillinger (electric piano, organ, sitar, bass). The band plays in a distinct style located between minimal music, drone, and ambient music, making extensive use of improvisation.
