Case Box

Mélancolie en prose is the ninth album of OPERA MULTI STEEL, the cult minimal pop wave band native from Bourges in the centre of France. Conceived as a tribute to the memories of the Past, the retrospective mood of this project first begins on the jacket of the cd because the various graphic elements confusedly presented there, are the tracks of numerous topics that marked out the atypical music of the band or which surrounded the creation of most of the songs of an already long career: confused relation towards mysticism, in its symbolism and aestheticism, closeness of railroads - the group creates and records in a disused railway station-, omnipresence of childhood memories : Father Rabbit and Mother Rabbit watching with concern four OMS stamped eggs which will give birth to the four members of the band, a kind of exclusively animalistic Christmas that could take place in Easter (!) because, originally, this image, from the very beginning of XX th century, diverted by the graphic Agency Phasme, was an Happy Easter postcard intended for children. It also reminds in a very strong way the illustrations of books designed for the very young persons of this period.

The album includes six totally unpublished titles and six other ones selected among songs dating from the early years of the group and which have never been released on cd, only issued in those times as light demo versions for very limited edition K7 tapes.

There is however no caesura between the recent and the oldest titles. The group has arranged all the pieces in a homogeneous way while integrating the whole instruments which made the sound of OMS for several decades and which they were never able to abandon: Casio VL1, Elex, recorders, melodica, vintage Roland beatboxes sounds etc. …
The atmospheres are rather heterogeneous, as usual, mixing Pop (Délectation morose, Identité) New wave (Extrême Onction), Folk (Physionomie), Electro-minimal (Le Landau effaré…) and even classical music by the addition of numerous choral parts (Sur la Grève, Et par delà les Blés) plus diverse and unlisted influences.

The numerous sound effects, one characteristic of the band, which mark out the tracks, are going back, among others, to the nice times of the debuts of stereophony on vinyl, to some cult movies for the musicians that we can enjoy guessing the titles as well as in memories of youth or childhood more or less precise like the gymnastical movements of french Lendit (Sans Histoire).

A diffuse tribute to Frank Herbert may be noticed on the title Physionomie. His voice punctuates the piece . As well Jean-Christophe d' Arnell (Collection d’Arnell-Andréa Arnell) wrote the lyrics of the last piece of the album: Et par delà les Blés which concludes with a poetic evocation of the place Opera Multi Steel lives and composes in. Railroad elements: bell of grade crossing, passage of train and other atmospheres of railway station),
complete this album, still more turned than usual towards the notion of time which passes… fast.
