Hour 1, 7-8 a.m.

Back in 2020, OEM Compilation 1 started as a way to offer the experimental musicians of Ottawa a space to virtually share their creations. COVID took away the opportunity to experience that creative drive in person but the Compilation provided a different kind of space; not a replacement for in-person experiences but not a distant second choice either. OEM Compilation I provided many windows into the Ottawa experimental music scene while also offering all proceeds to local charities. OEM Compilation II Side A and Side B, open many more windows not only into Ottawa but across the river, and around the world as well. This release also marks the 10th anniversary of OEM's existence.

The inspiration and power of the solstice sun shines brightly on this release day. It highlights the remarkable talent that has been revealed in OEM Compilation II. There is vast and immense talent in this new compilation. Each contribution shines as a reflection of drive, will, and creativity.

Enjoy the collective space of OEM Compilation II alone with a set of headphones, organize an intimate listening party, or blast the sonic selections across the city, and beyond! Let the music resonate far and wide! -Lloyd Keane
