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
