ODBOY & ERORDOG, EPISODE 3 (2012)
“ODBOY & ERORDOG, EPISODE 3” is a nine minute audiovisual work for chamber quartet, electronic music and animation. It is the continuation of Episode 2 in the same series, and was commissioned by the Swedish new music ensemble The Peärls Before Swïne Experience, who commissioned Episode 2 three years earlier.
As with previous works in the “Odboy & Erordog” series, “Odboy & Erordog, episode 3” presents a feverish narrative centered around a boy and his dog, sent off on ambiguous missions by a nameless authority in a semi-abstract environment, structured around the aesthetics and parameters of early 1980’s computer games. As with the first two episodes, the work is mainly a meditation on childhood concepts, experiences and nightmares.
ODBOY & ERORDOG SUITE
Along with Episode 3, a three-minute PROLOGUE was commissioned by the quartet to replace the "electronic music only" Episode 1 and form the “ODBOY & ERORDOG SUITE”, consisting of PROLOGUE, EP.2 and EP.3 as a complete 22-minute audiovisual / chamber music work. The ODBOY & ERORDOG SUITE was premiered with live music performed by the Peärls Before Swïne Experience at the International Film Festival Rotterdam 2013 (Official Selection).
