• othon Digital Angel (digipak CD, £8.25)

    label: Durtro Jnana

    The long-awaited debut album from the ’enfant terrible’ of the alternative music scene is finally here. Digital Angel is an atypical debut album: with vocal performances by Marc Almond, David Tibet and Ernesto Tomasini and works that defy any pre-existing musical genre, Digital Angel is the manifestation of a challenging, bold and yet sensitive artistic vision. With pieces mainly, though not only, for voice and piano and with the production cut to a minimum, Othon’s album has an intimate and almost live quality. His compositions - a blend of opera, punk, noise and lyrical romanticism - form a proof of a rich and distinctive musical language. Othon has enthused audiences and critics alike with his highly original compositions, intelligent songwriting and virtuosic piano playing. With only a limited self-made CD EP in his back catalogue, Othon has toured several European cities and has his music performed regularly on both European and American radio shows. His pieces have formed soundscapes for films by Bruce LaBruce and Derek Jarman and he has collaborated with musicians such as Peter Christopherson, the Elysian Quartet (who guest on the album) and Fabrizio Modonese Palumbo. Digital Angel’s original artwork and photography is by Hector de Gregorio. Othon has written pieces of music for films by Bruce LaBruce and Derek Jarman. Tracklist: 01. When I Leave You 1.02.
