O.R.k. - Screamnasium - Album Trailer

Following on from last month's single "As I Leave", I am happy to say that O.R.k. album four, "Screamnasium" will be out in October. Right now, “Screamnasium” feels to me like the album we’ve been trying to make since we first conceived the band, both sonically and in terms of the songwriting and subject matter. All four of us are playing to our natural strengths and we’ve managed to express both light and shade and all sorts of colours in between. It reflects our recent pasts, and directs some energy towards a more hopeful future. For me it’s been kind of a depurative, and I really hope that overall feeling comes across.

Fractal Sextet

The Fractal Sextet album is finally due out in September 2022. Featuring Stephan Thelen and Jon Durant on guitars, Keyboardist Fabio Anile, Andi Pupato on percussion, Yogev Gabay on drums and yours truly on bass. It's perhaps best described as a deep dive into extended odd time, modal improvisation, with five lengthy tracks across the album as a whole. Most of the music originates from existing compositions by Stephan and Fabio, but the music has definately evolved into something of it's own with contributions from everyone involved, creating a very distinct group identity and I think it's appropriate to use the word "synergy".
