William Fields returns to 3OP, this time with Greek electronic musician and sound-designer Alex Retsis, aka Qebo.
Recorded live in Athens during Summer 2021, what you hear was made using a selected hardware set and Fields’ own compositional system. And masterfully executed.
αlive is a perfect blend of melodicism, rhythmic sophistication, playfulness, changing moods, fantastic sound design… the music here is incredibly organic.
Fluid timbres, nuanced production, and the driving, skittering percussion you've come to expect from both of these artists, combine for an experience that is truly greater than the sum of its parts.
When we listened to the result of this collaboration, we pretty much instantly knew we wanted to release it on 3OP. This was even before we knew it was recorded live on video.
While there's nothing like being physically present for a performance, we hope the companion videos help to capture just how much this release embodies its name : αlive
