It will also be available for digital download at iTunes and many other digital download services.

Marco Oppedisano is a composer and avant-guitarist who combines gorgeous classical structures with dynamic and experimental techniques. He has previously released a collection of solo recordings, Electroacoustic Compositions for Electric Guitar, and a collaboration with David Lee Myers, Tesla At Coney Island, both on OKSRNA.

The Ominous Corner, his second solo release for OKSRNA, marks a major shift in the work of this gifted musician. His work has become more focused, centering around his live playing. His musique concrète constructions are a jumping off point; a foundation for his mastery. He has processed his influences, such as Fred Frith, Marc Ribot and David Torn, and lifted his stylized playing into a symphonic grandeur along the lines of Mahler, particularly in the albumâs title track.

Oppedisanoâs work can sometimes be gorgeous and pastoral, yet his love of the spiky noise and squeal of the New York avant-garde scene balances the beauty with chaos in a profoundly exhilarating way. Marcoâs strength is in his discipline to play in a way that avoids showiness, yet highlights his incredible chops. Marco weaves his notes and noise like brush strokes in Cityscape, painting lines like the NYC skyline viewed from a helicopter hovering above.

Throughout this album Marco lifts the listener up into the stratosphere with weightless and lovely sound works. The Cageian radios that surface in and out of Imaginary Portal and the âmorning has risenâ feeling though out Renewal are just two of the many moments in this collection where Oppedisano achieves a lift-off like Tod Dockstaderâs recent Aerial recordings, classic Fennesz or Keith Rowe.

Oppedisanoâs previous solo release, Electroacoustic Compositions for Electric Guitar, was met with wide acclaim. Dave X of Startling Moniker said, â...(Oppedisano) demonstrates his ability to generate an extremely broad range of sounds from his instrument, from sonorous aquatic bells to swarming clouds of electronic chirpingâ. Tobias Fischer of said, âLike a radio dial being turned by an invisible hand, the music switches from sound art to Metal Riffs, then gradually into waves of engulfing drones and a sequence of Frippertronics and consoling backwards chords.â

This CD-R marks the latest major release from the Brooklyn-based OKS Recordings of North America label run by Bill Byrne and his longtime collaborator, Jonah Goldstein. OKSRNA specializes in artist created CD-R releases that cater to tech-savvy listeners who are ready for new arenas of creativity for musical expression.
