Debut release of the new collaborative project of outsider duo of musicians and visual artists MY CAT IS AN ALIEN and Belgian electronic composer CÉDRIC STEVENS. Over 2 hours of new music as human ears have never heard before and will never do if you miss this unique chance! – In February 2014 brothers Maurizio and Roberto Opalio aka My Cat Is An Alien spent a residency in Brussels for a long studio session in trio with Cédric Stevens (aka Acid Kirk), who recently collaborated in Fennesz's new album. With the support of La Communauté Française De Belgique the entire session is now available in its entirety on MCIAA’s legendary Opax Records, in the form of this colossal triple LP set entitled 'Abstract Expressionism For The Ears'.

The session is made of long-form pieces instantaneously composed, recorded and mixed by the trio during those incredibly intense days and nights of recordings. Dreamy architectures of sounds, floating sculptures of abstract drones and cannibal noise, modal piano, ancestral strings and electronic futurism, celestial music of the Spheres, imbued with impressive textures of vocal exorcisms by Roberto Opalio. Again your ears won’t find any point of reference when listening to this transcendent and essential work!

Instantaneously composed, performed and produced by My Cat Is An Alien & Cédric Stevens. Roberto Opalio: wordless vocalizations, alientronics, pedal effects, electronic devices, vertical piano; Maurizio Opalio: self-made string instrument, pedal effects, cymbal, piano strings, Roberto’s piano real-time loops; Cédric Stevens: electric guitar, analogue modular system, minimoog, various analogue pedals.
