OJP066 : Shinji Kikuchi / Guitalelistication

 

Cover art by A.L.


OJP066 : Shinji Kikuchi / Guitalelistication

Another lost masterpiece from Shinji Kikuchi (see also OJP043).

Shinji about his album:

"This instrumental album was recorded in 2000 when I just returned from Salvador Bahia in Brazil back in Japan.
I had to return to play with a musician from the Andes that I used to play with.
I like Andean music but I wanted to record  using my new skills learned while playing Brazilian music and jazz in Salvador Bahia.
I used a Yamaha "guitalele" which is like a ukulele but has 2 additional bass strings.
My ambition was to be endorsed by Yamaha to get money and make more albums in order to make this instrument"guitalele"famous but as you can guess I failed miserably.
Nevertheless I did live performances with another guitarist  and I sold this CD when performing with the Andean musician even though we were not playing any music from this album.
The album succeeded with some people but I was young and expected more reaction from the music world though my promotion skills were far from professional.
I recorded one more album with this style then when something different."

All music composed and all instruments played by Shinji Kikuchi on a Yamaha MD4 multi track recorder in his home studio in Kawasaki Kanagawa Japan.

OUC040 : Mathieu Babinot / Requiem

 

Cover art by Mathieu Babinot


OUC040 : Mathieu Babinot / Requiem

New album for French composer Mathieu Babinot (see also ODG124 and ODG141).

What he says about it:

'For me this album is not an album about mourning but more a retrospection on what sensorially could await us on the other side. It's like an inner journey on this great unknown, like a reflection of our fragile nature as human beings.

To write this album I based myself on parts of classical Requiem including Mozart, Fauré, Wagner and Vivaldi. I used them as a sound base by modifying them and then I added my own instruments and musical parts.'

Digital release on the 8th of July 2022.

Track listing:

1: Humatio (the burial)
2: Tenebris descensus (Dark Descent)
3: Gravibus ostium (Heavy gate)
4: Iudicium (The Judgment)
5: Lux (The Light)

OVD060 : Alinovsky / Gulm Paranoia - Fum Fartog Biz Mitag

 

Cover art by Kiekebiche


OVD060 : Alinovsky / Gulm Paranoia - Fum Fartog Biz Mitag


"During my early youth and when being impish, my mother used to call me Golem.
It stayed for a while and to this day I still have my best friend calling me Golemito at times.
While visiting Prague I of course went to visit the ghetto and learned more about Rabbi Judah Loew ben Bezalel, the creator of the Golem.
A few months back during the pandemic I started to have this idea of some music about the Golem having second thoughts about his life and becoming paranoiac.
So I composed a few tracks which quickly became 16 and more than an hour long album. I decided to split it in a day life of the Golem: from morning till noon and from noon to night.
I then gave the tracks to Pierre who added his touch of genius to give the album his definitive touch.
I hope you will enjoy this journey!"
Alinovsky

This is the first part: From morning till noon.

Alinovsky: sounds and motions.
Pierre Vervloesem : guitars, basses, spices, remix and mastering.
