OU is the music of an hypothetic new world, where machines have grown old like all other myths and traditions, and have simply become part of folklore. In this world it is normal that a laptop and a sitar meet by the river, and start jamming on ancient patterns.
This special sonic place is what the name "OU" refers to. A name with no precise meaning, a word that can recall different languages, even the distant calling of a Sicilian fisherman, which also resonates in the album.
The album is the result of an extensive improvised recording session, with live electronics applied on the prepared sitar of Dias De. Editing and recomposing this flowing material, Bob Meanza has produced the final album, as a journey into a possible sound folklore.
