Twelve inch vinyl re-pressing of this 1984 debut the French Electronic band. Opera Multi Steel was born during the winter of 1983 in Bourges, a city in the center of France. Originally a trio, the band began to record demos. Layering organ-like keyboards over drum machine snares and a woodwind recorder, they created a unique style of Medieval or Baroque Synthpop, and released their self-titled debut EP on their own label Orcadia Machina in 1984. The four songs range from fast and bright New Wave influenced by Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark's 'Electricity' and slower, brooding Dark Wave ballads that foreshadowed the classic French cold wave sounds of their debut album released the following year. All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The jacket is a die-cut replica of the original sleeve using master templates the band created in 1984 and offset printed on heavy French off-white card stock. Each copy includes an inner sleeve printed with lyrics and 17th century perspective line drawings by Jean Vredeman de Vries.
