Opiuo with Daily Bread
January 19 • 9:00 pm• $20
On Saturday, January 19, InSight Eugene welcomes Opiuo back to the WOW Hall along with special guest Daily Bread.
Oscar Davey-Wraight, better known as Opiuo, is a New Zealand born producer, DJ and multi-instrumentalist. Now living in Australia, he has forged an internationally successful career creating and performing his bass heavy, technically intricate songs for global audiences despite being almost completely deaf in one ear. Opiuo has played across almost every continent, sharpening his skills with audiences and environments of all types. First gaining recognition throughout the Soundcloud electronic scene in 2010 with Robo Booty, Opiuo’s career has evolved and grown throughout three full-length albums and several EPs. His most recent release, the Syzygy 01 EP, came out in March 2018 and advances his unique brand of funky glitch-hop, with more futuristic bass influence coming to the forefront. Opiuo’s headlining Red Rocks concert in April was highlighted by the coordination of the Syzygy Orchestra, a 20-piece orchestral band, individually selected by Opiuo himself. This specially crafted concert showcased the complexities of his music by transforming his synthetic compositions into a collaborative, live acoustic performance. The cinematic backdrop of Colorado’s red sandstone was fitting for the resulting spectacle of Opiuo’s catalog being performed in seven orchestral movements, culminating in an album release of the recorded performance. Experienced in challenging the format and delivery of live electronic music, for his upcoming Astro Syzygy Tour 2019 Opiuo will focus on bringing the experience of syzygy to life. Throughout the night, Opiuo will bring his high-energy stage presence to two performances, one live set, and one DJ set.
Support will be provided by Daily Bread.
