Seasons with OP3 & Runes


‘AWSS’ (Autumn.Winter.Spring.Summer) is a collaboration between OP3 & Runes(Manchester, UK) that features vocals for the very first time.

Minimalistic piano themes, a beautifully haunting string quartet and some well structured electronics became the perfect basis for some deep, heartfelt and ethereal at times vocals by the amazing Runes.

With OP3 mainly focusing on composing the music, Runestook over the lyrics and made the tracks come to life by delicately using vocals, voices and poetry.

The concept of ‘AWSS’ takes the listener to a journey as the passing of the season occurs through a story of love, pain, loss and recovery. Five songs, one year, one story, many voices.

OP3’s “Hope” is a story you can feel

OP3

Our forth and last release this January is coming from OP3, what is a musical experiment­ based in Greece, addressing an ambient and atmospheric musical journey, borrowing elements from different genres of music such as modern classical composition, jazz, electro and folk rhythms all coming together to provide the listener with a unique audio experience.

Hope by OP3 from Greece is a concept album with a unique story written by Dimitris Mitropapas. A short and symbolic title that seems to be the best choice in order to fully express what the main theme of the album is all about. The storyline goes as follows: A girl named Melanie wakes up inside a strange room, in a futuristic city. She doesn’t seem to know the reason of her appearance there. Melanie tries to find a way to connect all the clues leading to this event as well as an escape out of there.

”The sound of the album is focused on the atmospheric, ambient elements provided by the minimalistic piano themes, haunting cello lines and heart­touching violin melodies. Electronics and the use of a variety of home made sounds, gave the album an even more unique “feel” to it.”
