Alicia is listening, it is sharing, it is resistance, and it is also the attempt to bridge a gap. OEOAS shares the concerns of art workers in this moment of crisis afflicting live performance. This feeling is transformed into the necessity of not publishing art contents for free. Alicia will do its part, allocating what has been collected with the donations for its purchase to small local organizations that are working to provide basic necessities to people in difficulty due to the health and social emergency.
Alicia is red, Alicia is gray
Alicia is hot, black and boiling
Alicia mumbles and screams
Alicia smiles, and everyone smiles with her
Alicia beats the time slowly
Alicia brings the bodies closer, soothes the fatigue, pushes to realize the impossible
Alicia is the mother of all, she cares for everyone and loves everyone
One hundred musicians from all over Italy, driven by a strong urgency of collective action, gave birth to Alicia, the first album by OEOAS and the result of an intense recording work that lasted a week.
The participants have created together a work that is a musical experience and a wonderful social act, fully expressing their sound idea and at the same time orienting their choices, under the guidance of the conductors.
