Opollo: The Solarnaut

The Solarnaut is a live performance piece from Polish experimental band Opollo. The track, running over 16 minutes in length, is a  long form ambient excursion into a noise laden soundscape of implied melodic structure. In this piece, texture replaces phrasing, indeterminacy replaces melody and recognizable tones become a pastiche for orchestration. Dense, complex and dark, the work comes alive in headphones, where the sonic experience is immersive and draws a detached mindfulness out of the listener.
