Founded by Scott Heller aka Dr. Space (synth, management) in 2004 Oresund Space Collective are a multinational crew which get together as often as possible to play free form improvised space rock music. The band name derives from the Øresund Bridge, connecting Denmark and Sweden since the year 2000. The purpose is to offer another flavour with every new session. This is guaranteed by everlasting line-up changes. The whole OSC family comprises more than 30 members in the meanwhile, temporarily entrusted by nearly every existing Nordic psych/space band. They have toured all over in Europe whilst collaborating with Sula Bassana and others…
This live release was captured on the occasion of their celebrating 10 years of live Oresund Space Collective concerts. The first concert was at their local favorite club, Dragens Hule (RIP) in Feb 2005. Since that time the collective grew greatly from the roots of Mantric Muse and Bland Bladen to a multi-international collective of like minded musicians. The amazing venue, Loppen in Christiania was the site of this amazing night, which featured 3 sets of music with three completely different line up of musicians. Dr Space played in all three sets but all the rest of the musicians switched out for each set.
The Øresund Space Collective is back with 2013 studio album, the bands 16th release. The material on this gatefold album was recorded at the Black Tornado studios in Copehagen in April 2012. It is the same studio where all of the bands studio releases have been made. The Sessions were heavily guitar dominated as was the last studio session from 2010 but the level of solo intensity was lifted up a notch as Daniel and Nicklas lay down some amazing melodic, spacey and ripping guitar on these exploratory tracks. Besides the opening track, Walking on Clouds, the rest of the tracks were totally improvised. The songs presented here were engineered by Lars Lundholm, mixed by Daniel (in his home studio in Colorado in 2012) and mastered by Johan Dahlström in Feb 2013. The fantastic artwork is by the amazing Finnish artist Eetu Pellonpåå.
This marks the 20th Øresund Space Collective release. The music was recorded by a very special group of musicians from Sweden and Norway (plus Dr Space-Denmark) at the Black Tornado studio in Copenhagen. The members are from a wide variety of bands including Tangle Edge, Agusa, Camper von Beethoven, My brother the Wind, and Ex-Siena Root. The mixture of pedal steel, sitar, violin, mandolin, and theremin, presents a new and exciting sound and energy ranging from high energy space rock like Ride to Valhalla to very laid back country space blues with Jam for Jerry G and Indian space trance of the Digestive Raga…
This is an acoustic instrument record with members of Siena Root. It features chilled out Eastern guitar, sitar, hand drum and synthesizer pieces. All improvised. "West, Space and Love" is a meditative and captivating album to place alongside artists like Daevid Allen's "Sacred Geometry" that successfully fuses ambient, electronic and ethnic/world elements to create an intoxicating and timeless psychedelic spacey journey.
This album was recorded in Stockholm, Sweden on Dec 4-6th, 2015. This session was less improvised but recorded in several improvised layers with a few special guests joining in as well. The music is much more synthesizer based with KG playing amazing 70s inspired synths and organ, as well as bass, guitar, and sitar. Dr Space creating spacey sounds and drones, while Love performed a spoken word, and providing all the drum and percussion parts. The addition of Violin and Santoor really took the two Indian inspired pieces (Khan Paan, Øscilations in D-Minor) to another level. A fantastic instrumental, Kraut inspired ethnic musical journey!
