Opiuo is on track to become the Hans Zimmer of the electronic music world.
Since erecting his wildly innovative Opiuo moniker, Oscar Davey-Wraight has graced world’s stages with his synth-led blend of glitch-hop, funk, and bass. What began as a bedroom act in 2007 has now evolved into an extremely diverse, immersive live experience that marries edgy electronic elements with a full-scale classical orchestra.
Shortly after releasing his Syzygy 01 EP, the NZ-based producer embarked on an album-accompanying tour with a hallmark performance at the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater. This wasn’t just any “hallmark” performance of his career, however. The night would mark the unveiling of a never-before-done electronic/orchestra fused act featuring the incredible 20-piece Syzygy Orchestra arranged by Tom Hagerman.
Now from that very launch in late April comes Opiuo x Syzygy Orchestra’s new live accompaniment, dubbed “Live from Red Rocks,” which is out now via Slurp Music. Davey-Wraight transcends his already-accomplished producer profile as he leads a full house on those sacred rocks. The album guides listeners through seven remastered movements of carefully reworked electronic music, with the 20 piece Syzygy Orchestra right behind him.
