ocp – 'Drone to the Bone' and 'A variar'

ocp - A variarEditora do Porto curator João Ricardo aka ocp has two new releases out. The first is a long drone piece, Drone to the Bone (Editora do Porto), and the second is 30-minute 13-track experimental work, A variar (MiMi). Drone to the Bone exemplifies for me the difference between Space Music and Drones: though drones may be a bit spacey, it is in the nature of the drones that the composition is tethered to a single idea; Space Music not so much. Meanwhile A variar seems to come from a completely opposite direction than ocp’s drone piece — noodling. A variar gives us a glimpse into the mind and workings of ocp as we listen from one track to another whether it be drones, field recordings, IDM or whatever you want to label the next type of music.
