Description

Opdot comprises the duo of Tim Laverack, an immensely talented classically trained pianist and music graduate who studied electro-acoustic composition under the tutelage of Simon Waters; and Gavin Kirtley, a naturally gifted bass player, media graduate and specialist electronic engineer. Opdot have a musical eye for detail and an ear for melody, textures and mood. Their compositions marry emotive melodic electronica with intricate beats. Blending synthesizers and acoustic timbres the key to their sound is constant development of thematic material within classical structures/forms. They cite many musical influences from the electronica of Apparat, Ochre, James Holden and Nathan Fake, to the more ambient sounds of Tim Hecker, Murcof, Portico Quartet and Loscil. The glitched beats of Aphex Twin, Amon Tobin and the Tympanik audio label to the modern classical composers such as Phillip Glass, Johann Johannsson and Hauschka. The duo draw on inspiration from dancefloor produces such as Max Cooper and iconic DJ's like Craig Richards, Lee Burrage and Carl Craig. The result is something utterly distinctive and quite extraordinary, and quintessential sound of Opdot.
