Reminiscences is a selection of 8 standards of the band revisited in a more punchy and electro
style compared to the original versions but preserving what made the specificity of the Opera
Multi Steel sound! Indeed, on boosted rhythms and fully re-recorded vocals, those new versions
use sounds and “historical” instruments cherished by the band since its beginnings: TR 808, TR
606, TB 303, Elex, Casio VL-1, recorders, medieval choirs and various samples. The texts have
been preserved in their entirety. The tracks are taken from albums such as Cathedral, A Contre-
sens, Les Douleurs de l’Ennui, La Légende dorée and even from the very first EVER release of
the project: The vinyl EP ‘Eponymous’ from 1984!
The artworks of the disc and sleeve, as well as the video clip coming together, have been realized
by Alan Cassiano, who based his graphic work on visual atmospheres inherited from the very first
vinyl EP of the band, using images taken from the Encyclopedia (XVIIIth century) and Perspectives
by Jan Vredeman de Vries (XVIth century).
Finally, ‘Reminiscences’ is not a simple compilation of tracks, but rather a kind of travel through the
different ages of Opéra Multi Steel’s music rearranging/revisiting classic songs and images through
nowadays eyes and ears.
