OCA - Preset Music [Cassette]
Preset Music by OCA released August 6th, 2018 by Constellation Tatsu.
OCA is a collaborative project by producer and musician Yo van Lenz (Through My Speakers, Monkeytown Records) and artist Florian T M Zeisig (Important Records/Cassauna, No Disk) At the intersection of music being presented in a certain framework, questions regarding musical quality, intentionality, virtuosity and purpose arise. The work ‘Preset Music’ engages with questions regarding compositional intentions. Notes, chords – and often times improvised snippets of music – are exclusively serving the purpose of showcasing the instrument itself. ‘Preset Music’ aims to display the juxtaposition of intentionality and non-intentionality in music and composition. With the gesture of intentionally sampling and composing, using non- intentional musical material – in the sense of purposive presentation regarding the instrument – the seven compositions stand in direct contrast to the. presenters’ original intentions.
