The band

The OGR is a guitar quartet that paints imaginary sound portraits of monsters. The compositional elements are drawn from what the monster evokes in us individually as well as from its representation and meaning in the collective imagination. The OGR works first to re-situate it in its context, to try to measure the impact it has through history and proposes a contemporary rereading.

The monsters

Ceneri del filosofo (2022) : No monster with tentacles or other morphological oddities in this fourth piece of the group. Here, it is about a man : Giordano Bruno, Italian philosopher, defrocked Dominican, free thinker and avant-garde promoter of an infinite universe.

Medusa (2012) : Having upset Athena, the beautiful Medusa is cursed and condemned to extreme ugliness, isolation and the impossibility of meeting anyone’s eyes.

Gojira (2011) : Better known as Godzilla, it is a monster that came out of the imagination of the Japanese film producer Tomoyuki Tanaka in a film released in 1954.
