Success of Ore Synthesizer Club

Performing recently at The Printworks to an absorbed and enthusiastic audience, The Ore Synthesizer Club (OSC) used synthesized sound and carefully prepared projected visuals in their “Overtures – A Compendium of Love”. HOT’s Zelly Restorick writes.

Nigel Nouveau, Alun Allen, Arturo Bax and Hector Braithwaite – these may or may not be pseudonyms – are the members of Ore Synthesizer Club – and at The Printworks, the four men, seemingly very humble, unassuming musicians, mingled with the audience whilst support act, Ted Versicolor bowed his tree branches – and when their turn came to take to the stage, they quietly donned their matching OSC badged dark green work coats and took position at their keyboards.

UnknownThe Club compellingly conveyed their message in sound and visuals about the myriad faces of love: narcissism, romantic, erotic, heartbreak – and, in the absence of a human object of their affection – love of the synthesiser. Again the session was accompanied by a cleverly designed full colour souvenir programme.

“An interesting band, prolific, refreshing, capable… AMAZING!” said one member of the audience.

Earlier in the year, OSC performed at The Stade as part of the Stade Saturdays, telling The Story of Vasili Alexandrovich Archipov, who prevented the launch of a nuclear missile, again producing an absorbing and intriguing mixture of powerful imagery and electronic sounds, accompanied by a thoughtfully produced, full-colour souvenir programme.

Ore Synthesizer Club is an excellent band but also so much more . Like Kraftwerk, they have created a mythology which makes watching them more of an immersive experience than simply a gig. Surely one of the best things to ever come out of Ore!
