Ö is an oerchestra from Helsinki, Finland. Ö's approach to music is not genre specific but rather combines elements from various sources including contemporary classical music, rock, and experimental musics. The key idea is to produce overlapping, roughly synchronized layers of music and rhythm constituting a complex web of simultaneuos sounds, melodies, and fragments which may be perceived either as a whole or plurality. Some reference points may be Terry Riley, Philip Glass, Harry Partch, African polyrhytms, or The Shaggs.
