Etmo and Osk are currently working on a second album. It has been recorded live in the South of France with a similar spirit and approach of their first album "Silver Liquid", but with more writing and structure following the live recording. This time both musicians brought their electronics beats to give different inspiration to their work, it features more up-tempo beats comparing to the first album.
Etmo and Osk have started to perform these new tracks live in London, at the Conway Hall, and the Cafe 1001 with live visuals by Stephane Malenfant.

A Cosmic Odyssey
The organic nature of Silver Liquid juxtaposes Etmo’s multidisciplinary use of brass and woodwind instruments, percussion and effects with Osk’s electronic wizardry when using both old analog and new technology - sh101, analog delays, iphone, ableton. This is how these two electronic music composers, with very different backgrounds, give birth to an intriguing new sound.
The album, which was recorded in a single session, sounds surprisingly solid for an impromptu collaboration thanks to an exquisite production work.
Melodic yet unpredictable and even manic at times, Etmo and Osk deliver a sleek work full of suspense and character. In Silver Liquid, Etmo’s powerful sax guides you as the scene opens before your eyes and your attention is lead to the little electronic treats that keep coming up as the track progresses.
This cosmic odyssey takes the listening experience to a different level offering you a collage of landscapes, moods and weird creatures. By the end of each track you’ll want to know the name of the film, but of course, there isn’t one.
Silver Liquid stands out as a unique work by these two extremely talented artists.
"... the challenge is to say something, to focus and believe on what is happening at the moment you are playing, as well as having an strong intuition and feeling about what will happen in the next few seconds. It is not just about trying things, its more about being able to tell a story together..."
