Ovro: Horizontal/Vertical & Revisited end Year of Silence

For “Horizontal/Vertical”, Ovro even managed to win over Drone Record’s Stefan Knappe - a man with a decidedly demanding taste. Announced as far back as November of last year, this short release, packaged in handmade covers adorned by “newspaper sheets and filmstrips”, looks set to take her music into discreetly new directions: “On HORIZONTAL / VERTICAL deep waving droning noises are set against vortexing echoes & swirling digital effects, derived from what could be instrumental sources or object recordings, moving the willing listener into a surrealistic subconscious dimension”, Knappe described the 7inch Vinyl release on the site of Drone Records, “Especially on the second side the contrasting conrete material can fill your imagination with "something" that "happens", so captivating & condensed!”

A new track on the Ovro MySpace presence, meanwhile, displays an interest in ritualistic moods, development through timbral shifts and a hauntingly slow rhythmic flow. Results of these new sessions, started in Summer after “doing practically nothing musicwise” for some time, should not be expected before next year, however.
