ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
—BEING and FEELING—

It’s always hard to describe ODDISEA’s music in one simple sentence because the music is a hybrid of many styles of music. It is, however, moody, energetic, emotional and it talks to you at very deep level. BEING and FEELING is about becoming more sensitive to what's around us in everyday life and becoming more aware of what’s truly important to us—our loved ones, self-respect, and time. Awareness makes life more meaningful and precious. The record also deals with the ideas of life and death and the impermanence of things.

This 30 min. EP features jazz trumpeter Elliot Deutsch, keyboardist and engineer Devin Thomas, violinist Claudia Zuniga, double bassist Aki Yamamoto, and drummer Stefan Litrownik. This EP changes its shape and color as you listen and draws you into the haunting world of ODDISEA.

“It’s adventurous, passionate, hard to categorize, surprising,
well-produced.” —John Braheny

—About ODDISEA—

ODDISEA's main focus is writing, recording, and performing unique music with no boundaries, music that goes beyond the fixed ideas of genre and instrumentation. Formed by three music students from Los Angeles, Christian E. Avalos, Hirotaka Inuzuka, and Efren Garcia, ODDISEA spent 2004 composing and arranging their music.

In the summer of 2005, ODDISEA went on to produce their first EP record, BEING and FEELING, at SouthWest Sound in Sierra Madre, California. Engineered by Devin Thomas and Irvin “Magic” Kramer, BEING and FEELING delivers to listeners ODDISEA’s raw energy and emotions.

In October 2006, joined by Chris Meszler, a drummer from Baltimore, ODDISEA became active as a performing band and premiered BEING and FEELING on November 11, 2006. ODDISEA plans to continue performing in the Los Angeles area in the coming year.



—What ODDISEA Stands for in Today’s Music Scene—

When you see ODDISEA play live, you will notice that we play all kinds of music from alternative rock tunes, jam songs, rigidly written almost-classical-like pieces to plain experimental synthesizer music. That’s because we want to show our appreciation for the music that influenced us.

So what does ODDISEA stand for? We stand for the celebration of quality music. We play music for our love of music. It is all clear and natural to us to think this way. Hope you will join us someday to express your love for music.



—About the Name ODDISEA—

Pronounced as odyssey, the name ODDISEA means that its band members are taking a long musical journey, entering unknown waters, taking new approaches to every piece of music. We envision our music as energetic, tranquil, rough and sometimes magnificent like the ocean.

It's cool
I thought every songs were well done but also as an album, or EP, it was good. You totally have your own world and I can hear your influences and background. I sometimes hear J-rock in it, too. Are you an artist who cares a lot about the lyrics, or not much? I used to not care about lyrics much but lately started to get into it a bit.
My favorite was the first and the second song. They are catchy enough for my ears. The arrangements are interesting. and no need to mention but the sound quality is nice. It actually does show the energy and the excitement of the performers from the CD, so I think it's really nice.
