Ouri Debuts New Video For “Ossature”
Montreal-based multi-instrumentalist and producer Ouri has shared a new video for “Ossature”, the track is off her current release and Polaris prize short listed Frame Of A Fauna. The track is accompanied by a video directed by Derek Branscombe. Thi year, also saw Ouri support Tirzah, Grammy Award Winner Arooj Aftab, Smerz and more
“I revisited the iconic, agile and tense sample of ‘Intact Alef’ by PTU from one of my favorite labels трип records for this song,” says Ouri. “Rebellious choruses fight submissive verses, puncturing the classical nuances with industrial abrasions and heavy drum samples – tearing down any attempt to keep a disciplined and soft self on top.”
In the accompanying K-Hole inspired video, Ouri fights a merciless red hand, offering a trippy visual feast as a conclusion to her album Frame Of A Fauna. Collaborating once more with Derek Branscombe, this video is inspired by a Ketamine treatment Ouri received last year. The video depicts some of her visions, aesthetically transmitting the feeling of this very strange healing experience, a heroic battle and retrieving a lost connection with her ancestors. Derek crafted this world Using a bold and sometimes chaotic mix of VFX and AI-generated animation.
Known professionally as Ouri, Auvé grew up in France and moved to Montreal at the age of 16 with dreams of becoming a composer. As Ouri developed her compositional ability, as well as her production and vocal chops, she integrated herself with late-night DJ sets in Montreal’s underground rave scene and was eventually selected to take part in Red Bull Music Academy’s Montreal Bass Camp. From there, her profile began to grow as she headlined Boiler Room’s Montreal showcase, toured with the likes of Yves Tumor and Jacques Greene, released her first EPs Superficial and We Share Our Blood, and collaborated with fellow Montreal artist Helena Deland on the interdimensional Hildegard.
