Ogive is a collaborative project between Elías Merino (ES) and Chris Herbert (UK). Ogive is an exploration of intermeshing and contrasting approaches to sound. The project is based upon organic collage made by processed found sound and algorithmic composition. Driven by a shared aesthetic and a desire to work beyond the bounds of their individual approaches, Ogive focus on the beauty of imperfections and gestural sound accidents, an endlessly shifting correspondence between laminar plateaus and surface details.
Folds comprises of works slowly crystallized through Ogive's synthetic world of sound particles and their complex behaviours that give rise to active and static sonic microstructures. The tracks are the product of an extended period of experimentation, investigation, and refinement, finally fixed during winter, 2017.
A new album tentatively titled Opalescentia is presently being prepared for release in 2023.
