We at Fremdtunes are currently finishing the debut EP ‘Used Future’ by OptiMace. Klaas Verplancke & Mister Adam are finishing the artwork and we’re to start telling the world about this release. But before we can any further we’d like to introduce you to the track ‘OptiMaceVille – Invasion of the Lettermen ‘. It’s a track that resulted from a collaboration between OptiMace and Mashville in 2009. Mashville is a collaborative art project initiated by Mister Adam and drJay. They invite people to work with them by exchanging images in order to create a silkscreen print together. They create one image, pass it on to the collaborator to complete/change and get a completely different outcome back. They work on it some more and send it back again. Image ping-pong so to speak. Once satisfied with the outcome they’ll have it printed. In the case of OptiMace they worked on image-music-ping-pong (so to speak). OptiMace invited saxophone player Erwin Vann and guitarist Shycop to complete the track and this is the result:
