Ott & The All Seeing I
The release of his current full length album ‘Mir’ on his own Ottsonic label in 2011 marked the beginning of a new phase. After many tour dates and a handful of festivals, we find ourselves nearing the fall of 2012… and Ott and The All Seeing I.
Ott and The All Seeing I is a live four piece band performing material from ‘Blumenkraft’, ‘Skylon’, and ‘Mir’. Featuring Ott (electronics), Naked Nick (vocals, guitar, synths, and percussion), Chris Barker (bass), and Matt White (drums), the band captures all the intricate glory of Ott’s electronic sets, but augments them with a raw power and spontaneity which propels the songs to another level.
Naked Nick is responsible for guitars and vocals on many of Ott’s best loved songs such as ‘Adrift in Hilbert Space’, ‘The Aubergine Of The Sun’, and ‘The Queen Of All Everything’.
Chris Barker is the other half of Umberloid and has provided bass on Ott, Hallucinogen in Dub, and Sphongle albums.
Matt White is a drummer of some 25 years of experience who first played with Ott and Chris Barker in their first band as teenagers way back in the late 1980’s.
Together, they are Ott and The All Seeing I.
