Svetlost + Odron Ritual Orchestra (MK)
“This is an album that’ll get into your bloodstream. This 11-piece ensemble is a throwback to the avant-garde big bands of the ‘70s, where chaos and raging intensity amplified sweet melodicism and a thundering groove. This is one of the best things I’ve heard all year.”
Dave Sumner, Bandcamp Daily
This large ensemble was established as a continuation of the successful collaboration between Novkovski, Omeragić and Spirovski in their trio Svetlost (Светлост). Envisioned as an open platform for collaboration, the music of this group changes and depends on the participants involved. It is mostly formed by stylistic directions, such as free jazz, post-rock, electro-acoustic music, minimalism and ambient. The compositional frameworks of the original trio serve as a fertile ground for musical interactions between the ensemble’s members where the boundaries between formal and free are blurred. Their debut “Odron Ritual Orchestra” was mentioned in several end-of-year lists for best jazz albums of 2019, including Bandcamp and NPR.
