Ozmosys EP Liner notes
Rachel’s Z on the foundation of Ozmosys
A few years ago when Omar was performing with with @KateBush in London, we set out to expand our original vision that we started with @TheTrioofOZ . Omar and I were looking for a sound that ranged from the beautiful intimacy of acoustic trio but with synth colors and interesting electronica to some raging dance , house, world and alternative rock beats found in todays music that we love.
I used Omar’s loop loft sample library as the groove foundations to create the synth electronica orchestration sequences in #Ableton . Some of our melodies were inspired by being swaddled in Kate’s luscious vocals and living inside the set of her visually mesmerizing and artistically stimulating show.
Through many many many rehearsals and some heated concepts discussions these became our new release
#EyestotheFuture . These initial recordings were explorations in technology- influenced by Daft Punk Random Access Memories which married killer synth electronica with Omar Hakim live drum grooves.
I wanted to create a live IEDM -improvised dance music whoch would feature organic grooves that would create a pulsating mantra that stimulates mind body and soul. It had been my mission to marry these worlds! When we expanded our group to include master improvisers and legendary voices on their instruments, Kurt Rosenwinkel and Linley Marthe we added authentic alternative and Americana guitar elements as well as deeply spiritual bass grooves to the mix. Their contributions as composers is already starting add new colors to our bands every expanding direction. Both artists bring extensive harmonic knowledge and their own unique palette of musical experiences ranging from world music to deeply complex jazz.
The combination of the four of us inspires wildly exciting improvisational conversations without losing the momentum of a strong groove…no matter the style we are exploring.
Welcome to the world of Ozmosys the product of a lifetime of musical experiences brought to you by four friends!! I’m so down to bring this fun to you!!!
