Oli Astral is a musical universe where the sound of modern jazz guitar merges with digital music technology and visual projection. The group keeps a balance between technology and a more organic approach to music. There are computers on stage, virtual instruments, MIDI controllers, and Frederic’s Modular Synthesizers that serve the imagination. The musical values thought, are still deeply rooted in the tradition of Jazz. Things like Improvisation, group interaction, and risk-taking are very important in the creative process. The importance of Melody might be the number one thing. If poetry is the only truth in the world of words, then Melody is the only truth in the world of sounds.
During the production process of the album, digital audio processing techniques were used to create musical textures. The audio artists who worked on that are Thibaut Quinchon, Derek Orsi, and Olivier Grenier Bedard.
Creative mixing, creative editing, computer sound design. The purpose of these is to widen the sound of the Trio with musical textures, loops, and overdubs.The Live experience is a little more immersive. After recording, the group worked with Visual Artist Bruno Scabini, From Buenos Aires. He illustrated and animated the music with creative drawing techniques and cinematic effects. In addition to the rest, there is a video image on stage that merges with the music. A video image that transforms the Live experience into a journey into the universe of the group.
