Previews of the electronic ambience tracks by Oyaarss performed yesterday as part of church organ-themed concert at MANS DOMS for compositions by Latvian composer Edgars Raginskis. Full recording featuring pipe organ, violoncello, baritone saxophone and vocals will be available at some point in the future.
Translation: "Churches in Latvia have long served as gathering places for locals. Part of this project is to explore the historic and social aspects of church-going, as well as the sound and mechanics of church organs."

Oyaarss: “Mūsu dievnami jau izsenis kalpojuši par tikšanās vietu Latvijas krietnākajiem ļaudīm, un arī mūsdienās to nozīme nav mazinājusies. Šajā projektā man aizraujoša šķiet gan dievnamu vēsturiskās nozīmes izcelšana, gan arī ērģeļu skanējuma un to mehānikas izpēte.”
Over the last couple of months Oyaarss has been involved in exploring the sound and under-the-hood mechanics of church organs. We have visited several churches in Latvia to record their unique sound in the church ambience, focusing on the mechanical aspects of organs, as opposed to their tonal characteristics. Churches are dark places, literally, hence the poorly-lit pictures.
The project will be presented as part of a church organ concert at Riga Cathedral / MANS DOMS on December 1st - https://www.facebook.com/events/1654189551465302/
After a short hiatus the news is that Oyaarss is currently involved in a project by composer Edgars Raginskis featuring contemporary music for church pipe organ, violoncello, baritone saxophone, female vocalist and live electronics. To be presented on December 1st, MANS DOMS, Riga - more news coming soon.
