New music is pending while we're still hanging loose between the past and the future.
On a philosophical level, a crisis could be compared to migration - there is trauma, there are uncertainties, there is hope - that our societies could learn lessons. We are all connected, and the major challenges of our time are global ones. We need to stop pretending that what affects another part of the planet will have no effect on us. Stop exploitation of people, of animals, of nature, of countries. Come on, come, on, come on, common ground!
We're busy as bees... writing new OY songs, collaborating on theatre productions or animation movies, exploring the space within and around us, digging.. and starting to feel excited about being back on stage with our new material in the not so far future, yo!
We’re happy to share the release of our first book “notes from outer space” - a diary of images, new music and words extending our Space Diaspora album. In collab with graphic designers oiler/irena germano, OY reflect on future visions mirroring the now. Get it on bandcamp! The soundtrack is exclusively available with the book .. Preview/listen by clicking on the image or enter www.spacediaspora.net
With just one show left to go, we already give a shout to all who were with us this summer - we experienced some magical moments! And.. please stay tuned for bonus material surrounding our trip to Space Diaspora - coming soon!
