Laskaar refuses to fit in a box as the media and the industry usually expect from artists. In lack of a single term that can get hold of the spirit of his unique music, soul seems to be the best option. But be warned: it is a mutant soul in constant evolution. Just like a pokemon, it evolves and keeps changing its form, says Laskaar.
Originality, quality and eclecticism are the guidelines of this project orientated towards an open and free dissemination of music.
Every month Paper Sessions will launch a new video of a short performance by a solo musician, band or ensemble. The project will accommodate all kinds of styles and will feature artists from all around the globe. Paper Sessions by OCB should thus be regarded as a virtual, worldwide and 24/7 music venue where visitors can listen to their favorite music and also discover new sounds and sonic ideas. Through its own on-line platforms (webpage, Facebook, Instagram, Youtube) this project has been created with a wide, multicultural and transgenerational audience in mind.
We are now launching our second edition of stream concerts with the novelty that, this year, some of our sessions will be taking place in the middle of Nature in order to emphasize how music can help raising environmental awarness and respect for our endangered planet.
Aside from the streaming concerts that the audience has enjoyed before, for the first time this year, OCB Paper Sessions was part of the Primavera Sound Festival in Barcelona 2019 with its own venue, hosting three highly sucesful shows by CHAI, Alice Phoebe Lou & Miya Folick.
