OUW005 : Remo Zanin / Violence


Cover art by A.L.



OUW005 : Remo Zanin / Violence

Remo Zanin is a contemporary musician who does sound experimentation. 
In the past he collaborated with Enrico Vezzi creating sound installations in Italy and France.
In 2018 Christa and Remo recorded the album 'Violence' at home using a computer, some outboards for effects, and a phone app for the drum beat.
As for the lyrics, they used the cut up technique, cutting words from a contemporary art newspaper.
'Violence' is a lo-fi album made also as a tribute to staying at home, relaxing and creating music without pressure.
The mastering of the album was done by Mark Kramer who has also collaborated with Allen Ginsberg, Half Japanese and Daniel Johnston among others.

OVD030 : Caca 2020 / Sketches of Pain

OVD030 : Caca 2020 / Sketches of Pain

Released originally in 2010 (see ORT001), Pierre thought that it would be fun and exciting to re release a new version of the Album Sketches of Pain for its tenth anniversary! 
There you are with Caca 2020 completely remixed and remastered and with 3 bonus tracks never released on the first version. 
It's more fun, more powerful, more modern...it's Caca 2020!!!

The band Caca in 2010!

And the original text of the release then:

"Caca is the new band of Pierre Vervloesem.
This new megalo delirious adventure is based on second degree, starting by the name of the band which, quoting Pierre, has nothing to do with scatology.
Here, he renews his taste for big formations like he did with X-Legged Saly or still does with Flat Earth Society.
With Caca, he signs a very interesting parody of Jazz working with two noisy quartets.
The first one being guitar, bass, drums and keyboard while the second being alto, tenor, baritone and bass saxes.
The composing is without concession, like a rock, sometime out of tune, but ultimately ultra melodic and reaching at times some of the best John Barry ambiances.
Most of the musicians on the album (and live) are coming from the Jazz scene, which is also kind of fun for Pierre.
The music is an heritage from the New-york scene from the 70-80ties but has an instant modern echo which makes you want to move your frets on it!"
