Nuova Musica Ostinata

A 3 track techno ep (15m 54s) — released November 15th 2019 on Gang of Ducks

N.M.O. is the project of North Sea drummer and producer Morten Joh and Mediterranean synthesis aficionado Rubén Patiño.

N.M.O. is an ever-changing acronym that incorporates club music, performance, military drumming, fitness and absurdity. What they call 'Military Danceable Space Music and/ or FluxusTechno' is a unique blend

of repetitive percussive patterns and synthetic sounds that combines with performative aspects for explosive and intense live shows.

Using self-built software, they have developed a hybrid machine/human set-up and use a playing technique that resembles choreography.They integrate computer-synthesized audio, external drum synthesizers, synchronized lighting and combine it with human absurdity, snare drum, kick and hi-hat playing. N.M.O. have played at many major international festivals—such as Sónar, CTM, Unsound and Mutek—as well as contemporary art museums, such

as Barcelona's MACBA and Porto's Serralves, and have released critically acclaimed EPs on labels like Anòmia, The Death of Rave and Where to Now?, as well as the double 12" LP Nordic-Mediterranean Organization / Numerous Miscommunications Occur on Powell's Diagonal Records.

Nuova Musica Ostinata is the new Ep by Nordic/Mediterranean duo N.M.O.

This new Ep follows the N.M.O. heritage of merging acoustic drums with synthetic sounds in their self-called Military Space Music, as heard on past releases on labels such as Diagonal,The Death Of Rave and Anòmia, exploring fresh and undiscovered territories.

All three tracks are a lysergic caleidoscope of sound collage, dancehall, militaristic marches and kuduro, in a playful superimposition of patterns at 160 bpm and 128 bpm at the same time.

Nuova Musica Ostinata does exactly what it promises in its title, going head down into new directions, where white galleries and dark sweaty dancefloors coincide.
