More Info

Zwei OVRO-Werke auf einer CD, mit zwei aufwendig gestalteten 12-teiligen Vollfarbbooklets (Fotos, Lyrics, Zeichnungen, Infos). Die finnische Sound-scaperin arbeit vorwiegend digital und zersetzt v.a. ihre eigene Stimme / Gesang (aber auch e-bass, field recordings) und schafft faszinierend mikroskopische Klanggebilde, unheimlich & surreal; das alles wirkt wie eine bengstigende Reise in das Unterbewusste eines Menschen, voll von den abgespaltenen und verdrngten Details, die das Alltagsbewusstsein nicht erreichen.... von der Stimmung hnlich intensiv wie z.B. OBLIVION ENSEMBLE, unsere wrmste Empfehlung!

"The new Ovro album consists of two distinct parts, each independent yet linked to each other. Ovro started working on Mosaick the Serpent already in late 2003. In the early stage it was to become an independent EP, but the appearance of Gegendurchgangenzeit delayed its release. Meanwhile, a companion EP started to take form, namely Vipera Aurea. These two EPs, Mosaick and Vipera, are twins independent yet entwined like the snakes of a caduceus. They support and compliment each other and form a new whole, a third being that contains both its makers and in itself is something more. Vipera Aurea is coagula to Mosaick the Serpent's solve.
Some of this material has been performed on Ovro's live performances in 2005/06. Those lucky to have witnessed any of these will know the album is calm yet intense, vocal-flavoured Dark Ambient mindscapes in the highly regarded Ovrian style. Mosaic the Serpent / Vipera Aurea features contributions from Massimo of Black Sun Productions, Niko Skorpio and Mockingwyrd (Kaaos in Eccentris etc). Mosaick the Serpent / Vipera Aurea CD comes with two gorgeous 12-panel foldout sleeves, full of lyrics, liner notes, photos and artwork all created by Ovro herself. " [press release]

"...Ovro started her career as one of the few female exponents of the microsound/glitch music, but throughout the few years being active inside experimental music, she developed her personal style. Sampling plays an important role, and the main instrument to sample is her voice. This she feeds through endless amount of sound effects and comes with a rather dark, atmospheric sound that is less ambient than before, certainly on 'Vipera Aurea' where it reaches almost industrial like peaks. Fans of Coil should be definitely drawn into this." [FdW/Vital Weekly]
