1. Out of Darkness
2. Into the Light
OP3 - Lumina
OP3 is an ambient and atmospheric music journey, with 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. When it comes to the live aspect of the project, these elements combined with a strong narrative, poetry and literature are coming to life by a small cast of actors flattered by the outstanding background visuals and artistically placed light show. An OP3 live show is a unique form of art one should experience.
“Lumina” is the third official release of OP3 and as the project leader Dimitris Mitropapas states, “The most expressive and vivid elements of our music so far, in display!”.
The 3-track EP capitalizes the theme of “darkness” and “light” as a metaphor for our lives. Everyone has their moments of light and on the contrary, we all do serve a great time in darkness, especially on those days when nothing seems to get off the ground. The album’s main task is to resonate with the listener in ways that make one feeling grateful to be alive and experience the ups and downs of the human nature. It’s the only way to feel alive after all. Regarding the sound elements of this release, the piano and the string quartet now has a more haunting vibe than ever as well as the electronics are sounding even more alive and being much more original both sonically and progressively.
“Lumina” is being used as a passage to make way for the next full album of OP3, titled “SmyrnAe”. In a way, it prepares the listener for what is to come in the new album since on “Lumina”, OP3 introduces new sounds and instruments resonating more with the folk and jazz elements that the new album will have in abundance.
Three tracks “Out of Darkness”, “Into the Light” and “Lumina” have been chosen to synthesize and exhibit the theme of this constant circle of our lives in an attempt to heal, motivate and breathe life into getting the best out of our human nature.
