Album Description

Oli Astral is a musical universe where the sound of modern jazz guitar merges with digital music technology and visual projection. The musicians of the trio are: Frédéric Alarie on double Bass, William Régnier on drums, and Olivier Grenier-Bédard on guitar. The group keeps a balance between technology and a more organic approach to music. Some elements like computers on stage, virtual instruments, MIDI controllers, digital audio processing techniques, and Frederic’s Modular Synthesizers serve the imagination of the musicians. The musical values thought, are still deeply rooted in the tradition of Jazz. Things like improvisation, group interaction, and risk- taking are very important in the creative process of the trio.
