about

Réminiscences is a selection of 8 standards of the band revisited in a more punchy and electro style compared to the original versions but preserving what made the specificity of the Opera Multi Steel sound. Indeed, on boosted rhythms and fully re-recorded vocals, those new versions use sounds and “historical” instruments cherished by the band since its beginnings: TR 808, TR 606, TB 303, Elex, Casio VL-1, recorders, medieval choirs and various samples. The texts have been preserved in their entirety. The tracks are taken from albums such as Cathedral (Un Froid seul, Du Son des Cloches...) A Contresens (Les Sens, Las), Les Douleurs de l’Ennui, La Légende dorée (Fureur en Asie) and even from the very first vinyl EP of the band (Massabielle).
The artworks of the disc and sleeve, as well as the video clip coming together, have been realized by Alan Cassiano, who based his graphic work on visual atmospheres inherited from the very first vinyl EP of the band, using images taken from the Encyclopedia (XVIIIth century) and Perspectives by Jan Vredeman de Vries (XVIth century).
Finally, Reminiscences is not a simple compilation of tracks, but rather a kind of travel through the different ages of Opéra Multi Steel’s music rearranging/revisiting classic songs and images through nowadays eyes and ears.

Track Name: Les Sens (New Version 2017)
J’ai entendu dire par toi-même
Que jamais l’on ne s’émerveille
Que l’on n’agissait pas par soi-même
Au demeurant cela dépend
Tu finis tes phrases en soufflant
Sur la terre qui va durcissant
Hissant la foule vers les sommets
Mais plus encore pour très longtemps



C’est un Moi constricteur qui m’entoure
Qui me pousse à ne pas lier connaissance
A vouloir trop m’éloigner du jour
Je quitterai la terre
Sans partir avec toi et tes sens

A fabriquer plein d’espérance
Dans les rencontres sous la ville
Des rapports tissés de mensonge
Où le sens des histoires se perd
Au fond libre à nous en nos songes
De trouver la vie parfaite
Dans la joie de la volupté
De mettre en commun nos mains

C’est un Moi constricteur ...

Nous pleurons de grosses larmes
D’immenses perles de désir
Au-delà de l’évanouissement
N’y a-t-il de raison au monde
Quand tout est blanc volatile
Nous l’entraînons loin de la ronde
De fumée de brouillard il s’habille
Pour fuir le tonnerre qui gronde

C’est un Moi constricteur...
