Product Notes

'Ceremony' is under the influence of a wide range of music genres, resulting in a distinctive fusion. With each composition, Omar and Diego search for self-expression and originality, as for years, both artists have developed their own compositional style and their personal voice as performers, infusing their own sense of creativity into their work, drawing from Jazz, Impressionism, Rock, Funk, Chacarera, Contemporary, and Classical music among other styles. Thus they have shaped their own musicality and searched for their authenticity. As Omar and Diego play, the uncertainty of a spontaneous interaction allows them to explore the variety and richness of every moment. Listening on alert rather than playing mechanically, Omar and Diego are always attentive to each other's musical possibilities, and they develop a shared musical direction by following their intuition. Hence, "Ceremony" is an album with great space for improvisation and much interaction. Omar's works "Twinkle" and "Haze" recreate a melancholy feel, clearly showing impressionistic traits: simple melodies drift through elaborate harmonies that disguise the tonality. But in order to create contrast, in both tunes, this feel of drift is cut by sections that establish a more definite sense of time and tonality: The C section of "Haze" consists of an E pedal on the E major key, and "Twinkle" has a swing section that is skillfully combined with and mixed into the more vague-like harmonic sections of the piece. To the same effect, but in an up-tempo manner, "New Haircut" is structured in an AABA jazz standard format, in which the A, in a New Orleans groove, is composed mainly by the whole-tone scale, an impressionistic element, and the B is a swing section that is more dynamic harmonically. "The Replacement" shows again the composer's inclination toward whole-tone scale harmonies, but the head is short and the tune quickly moves on to the free jazz improvisation section, which in the recording evolves into Funk. Finally, "The Ceremony" is a jazzy AABA greatly influenced by Chacarera, an Argentinean folkloric style based on the polyrhythm of three beats against two.
