MK-OUNREELSQ790

 

MK-O second 2CD album UNREEL was released October 13th 2008 by Hitch Hyke.
Recorded and mastered at Artracks Recording Studios by George Priniotakis

A colourful world of sound unreeled in 103 minutes. Not a pompous “concept album”, but an endless musical coherence created by an imagination inspired by almost everything. Classical and jazz, psychedelia, progressive and new wave, techno and industrial, ethnic and drum n’ bass and traditional greek. 15 out of 23 tracks are instrumental leaving a quite significant number of songs. The lyrics are both english and greek. The orchestrations even more solid than OVATION, with a strong presence of brass and strings, along with the standard electronic – rock band armory. A sense of complete characterizes UNREEL.

MK-O is Marina Kanavaki & Oannes The acquaintance of the two musicians in 2000, led to a fruitful collaboration. The first outcome of this was the rearranged version of Marina’s first album “Pote & Tipota” , in 2004 . Today, as a duet [MK-O], are working on a series of albums, first of which was OVATION, their debut album, released in December 2006 by Hitch-Hyke. The multitude of musical influences and the broad working field creates an adventurous listening, hard to categorize. Extended instrumental arrangements coexist with lyrical songs. Rock, classical, techno, psychedelia, industrial, acoustic, electric and electronic instruments as well as a palette of samples varying from from Cesar Franck to Son House, Pink Floyd and Ministry, give a brief idea of the sound of this album. Ovation has been welcomed enthusiastically by the greek press & audience. Their second 2CD album UNREEL was released October 13th 2008 by Hitch Hyke. BLUES FOR THE WHITE NIGGER is their third album, released April 2011 by Puzzlemusik. 4th album, ΑΙΘΕΡΑΣ [Ether] was released March 2015.
