Hailing from South America by way of France, Montreal-based producer-multi-instrumentalist Ouri approaches her work without reserve or restriction, allowing each sound to evolve and adapt within their own creative atmospheres. Using her background experience of studying harp, piano and cello, she possesses an unique and compelling perspective on the synthesis of organic and synthetic rhythms. On past records, she's spent time collaborating with an eclectic array of artists such as Mind Bath, Munya, Forever, Odile Myrtil and others.
She'll be releasing her new EP, "We Share Our Blood," on Sept. 28 via Ghostly International in the US and Make It Rain in Canada.
For the video to recent single, "Escape," she joins forces with director Maiko Rodrig to create a haunting mass of late-night sensuality and electronic manipulations. The song doesn't present itself as overly dramatic, but it finds a grand expression through Ouri's graceful steps and the shadows that play upon those ethereal movements. She draws you into this hypnotizing world of tone and texture, allowing the liquid melodies that play within the orbit of her voice to grow and bloom with each passing moment.
