Oval | Emocor (feat. Hana Kobayashi) from album “Voa”
From trailblazing glitch masterpieces of the 1990s to delicate, hyperreal pop vignettes after 2010 – angular electroacousticguitars vs. “free” drumming! – Oval continues to be a celebration of skill & sensibility. With an undeniable instinct for the pleasantly irritating, the drastic & the dreamy, Markus Popp keeps on pushing the envelope. No one out there plays the computer quite like him.
VOA is the true next step for the collaboration of electronic music legend Markus Popp aka Oval with several wonderful singers/musicians from all over South America.
VOA offers the previously unreleased “A“-selection of recordings from those legendary Salvador da Bahia sessions plus brand new Oval material – adding up to an 18-track metamelomusical supermerger, chock full of genre-defying, mesmerizing songs and haunting, sensual melodies that does not cease to surprise.
