SA Recordings presents the soundtrack to Clayton Vomero’s ‘3OHA’ (or ‘Zona’ in English), featuring original music by Alex Epton and Lucinda Chua. The film was shot on location in Russia and Ukraine, revealing the outsider lives of young people in Kiev, Moscow, Vladimir and St. Petersburg.
Part docufilm, part archival history lesson and part impressionistic emotional evocation, ‘3OHA’ explores elements of 20th century soviet culture and history, now diffracted through the cracked lens of western capitalist consumerism.
A classically trained jazz musician with multiple sought-after skills, Alex Epton has either performed or recorded with, produced or remixed Thom Yorke, Björk, David Byrne, Arca, Oneohtrix Point Never, FKA Twigs, Onyx Collective, Wiki, LCD Soundsystem, Kele, Vampire Weekend, Charlotte Gainsbourg, TV On The Radio, Kali Uchis and Kylie Minogue.
Tipped as ‘One To Watch’ by NTS radio, Lucinda Chua is an accomplished singer, cellist and songwriter whose live performances include FKA Twigs’ ‘Magdalene’ world tour and GAIKA’s ‘AKIRA’ remix event. These follow collaborations with Ben Vince, Helm, K Á R Y Y N, Westerman and Nabihah Iqbal.
Recorded in close collaboration with Vomero, the hauntological score complements the film’s montage of recollection, aspiration, assimilation, romance, ennui and resignation, which although factual, has a deeply impressionistic and uncanny feel. Across thirteen tracks Epton explores phosphorescent audio ether and lazer-guided futurism that is rich with pathos and humanity, yet deeply otherworldly – augmented at points by Chua’s plaintive strings, synths and vocals.
Since the release of 3OHA SA Recordings has been working closely with Alex Epton and Spitfire Audio on the creation of a new SA sample library 'Entropy'. The library captures a unique combination of modular synthesis, granular synthesis, found sounds fed through Epton's self-built gear and pedals, and IR reverbs. It is an an inspiring spectrum of disorienting sounds that create both dramatic impact and eerie beauty — sweeping synths, pulsing bass drones, multilayered sound design textures and distorted percussive elements which evolve, unravel or detune as you play, instantly sparking new ideas.
Both digital and physical bundles of the 3OHA record and Entropy library are now available, as well as the standalone library available from Spitfire Audio.
