  • Compact Disc (CD)

    Pardonne-moi, Olivier!
    16 oiseaux pour Olivier Messiaen
    The album is a plunderphonic parabola of the imaginary world, mystical and ornitological, of the French composer of the XX century, Olivier Messiaen. A sort of birds’ catalogue, as Messiaen tried to do during his life.
    As always, even in this case økapi composed a little sound-collagism opera, which includes a video development.
    This is the soundtrack of this “movie”.
    For this A/V-project, økapi is co-working with the italian video-artist Simone Memé, part of the collective MoreTv-V.
    Because of his dixit plunderphonic nature, and for the occasion, økapi involved Geoff Leigh (sax/flute) and Mike Cooper (guitar) into his phantomatic virtual orchestra.
