Founded in the South of the Netherlands, OTOMAX debuts its new vinyl album Ways To Prepare Pets For War. The track selection is obtained from numerous recordings of gigs and rehearsals. The 5-minute rule is the structure: every song is improvised, played and programmed on the spot, but cannot exceed the 5 minute time limit. Well, unless it does of course... more a guideline than a rule, especially when the groove is just too good.
The improvisations emerge from a shared language between all five members as a result of experimenting and lots of playtime. Their backgrounds are in art, sound art, DJ-ing, and fashion design). Where the diverse disciplines meet and the creative conversation comes to be, skills and instruments are being generated, reimagined, reorganised, deconstructed.
"Long story short, there's a series of wonders always diverse and never the same". --- OTOMAX
