Oberdada's new album for human ears

At once quirky and accessible, Strange Bedfellows may seem scattered into disparate styles, although repeated listenings will reveal a hidden unity.
OSLO, Norway - May 15, 2023 - PRLog -- The new album Strange Bedfellows was supposed to be a collaboration between Oberdada and his ... strange bedfellows. Apart from Dickran Marsupial, who dutifully showed up with his tremolo guitar on Chemin de fer à souder, this remains a solo project exploring tango, fusion jazz, latin, and other genres. The fourteen thematically related tracks may need several listenings to find all the easter eggs of hidden cross-connexions and allusions.

In contrast to the increasing automatisation by AI and other convenient software affecting current music, these tracks have been meticulously put together, mostly from manually performed and edited instrumental parts. Oberdada in fact opposes the use of machine learning to train AI-tools on any composer's music unless the creator has expressly given permission. The current hype around AI-enhanced artistic creations obscures several downsides, including a tendency towards stylistic conformity.

In recent years Oberdada, the strange bedroom producer, has released several full length albums, including Apokryfer (2020), Six Easy Pieces (2021), and Pataphysical Conference (January 2023). Like the previous releases Strange Bedfellows is conceived not as a collection of independent tracks, but as a single work whose fourteen tracks are best enjoyed from beginning to end. Or try listening in reverse order from end to beginning.

The album with almost an hour of music is available at:
