OJP016 : Robert Edwin / The Earth

Cover art Robert Edwin

OJP016 : Robert Edwin / The Earth

Robert Edwin (seeOCD008ODG006 and ODG027) is back with an EP of 4 songs originally released as digital only bonus tracks on a compilation. Those are the last songs he composed back in 2014 before spending most of his time on pen drawings. 
They reflect his mood of the time and are much more relaxed, chill out and downtempo than his previous ones. 
After a lot of exhibitions, he started this year to create live drawings using as background music the tracks from this EP and from previous albums.
He intends to start producing music again in 2017, but this time as a duo with 蒼政涼子.

This is an example of his live drawings:

Digital release on the 9th of December 2016.

Track listing:

1: Pole Shift

2: Multi Aid
3: Cold Space
4: Morning Ocean

ODG060 : Amélie Nilles / Seed

Amélie Nilles is a french composer based in Paris, working in the field of electroacoustic music.
Influenced by musique concrète and jazz, which she studied in conservatory as a singer and
drummer, she tries to mix her voice with sounds from the environment (field recording), in order to make the whole organic.
She's currently attending a Master's Degree program at the University Paris VIII. 
Her research focuses on the notion of space in electronic music.

Seed, her first EP, introduces you to her imaginary with an amazing reprise of Strange Fruit (made famous by singer Billie Holiday) and one of her own compositions.

To Amélie's request, the album has been taken down. Nevertheless she's continuing her musical journey with new adventures.
