"This song the title track of Orsak:Oslo's new release Skimmer, which besides its English meaning has a meaning in Swedish and Norwegian that resembles the English ""Shimmer"". In context with the EP this is a more mellow and pondering track, while still continuing the band's thread of compositions with nerve and wistful melodies.
Few words about Orsak:Oslo
Orsak:Oslo is a dark slow brew containing of psych, dystopian post-rock and trippy space blues.
With their monolithic and melancholic instrumental pieces, this is music for the active listener.
O:O is a marriage between impulsive improv and thoughtful composition, later melodies and new harmonies are carefully woven in, layer by layer.
With a reverence and underlying devotion to the aura and musical preconditions laid down from the start, the result is raw, unpolished and true. www.orsakoslo.com/"
‘Doors’ is part of the new EP ‘BlackShip’ by Leonardo Barilaro, international pianist, composer and aerospace engineer. In Doors piano and synth are played at the same time, with the presence of guitar and drums. The style of the composition can be defined as Contemporary Space Music. Doors is the opening track of the BlackShip concept, that is inspired by the history of Malta during the Great Siege and shifted to the Future, where the island becomes the symbol for planet Earth and the BlackShip travels through Space to other planets. This new aesthetics is a hybrid of different experiences of the composer, like collaborations with contemporary fusion dancers and visual artists. This results in a music bridge between past and future, dreaming with retro-futurism nuances while rooting in the cultural inheritance. The main influences can be related to artists like Ayreon, Infected Mushroom, Ulver and Liquid Tension Experiment. - www.nullodiesinenota.com
What are the genres that describe better your music style?
My music is generally piano and instrumental, although it can be categorized in multiple genres, including neo-classical and instrumental pop. Although I am still at the start of a music career, I intend to explore more genres, in order to create wholesome, authentic pieces.
Few words about your musical background and career?
I have started playing piano at the age of 7, it has been 13 years now. I attended a music school for 7 years, and have some basic knowledge about music history and theoretical concepts. Studying about various classical composers raised my fascination with instrumental music, but also made me see (hear, feel) music from a new perspective.
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?
I have loved music ever since I can remember. I used to sing a lot, and I have been fascinated with piano from the very start of my studies. I must say, I treat my musical instrument as a friend rather than a tool. Music reminds me of my cheerful childhood days, when I could be honest about everything and say things by their name. This is the type of approach I am trying to have now - create something that can speak truthfully to the listeners.
Music has no borders and many of us we may listen to more genres that we are mainly involved. So share with Nagamag which track comes first in your mind from music but is NOT similar to your genre?
Of Course Nagamag would love to listen also which track from a similar artist you admire?
