Following a request from XMA organizer Edward Tagliaferro, Oliver accepted to play for 15 minutes to open up the XMA Festival 2013. Oliver's intentions with Sandmist were never to play live, on the contrary, content and musical themes were always carefully designed to be polished and portray an unusual image of a one man band. Being an active bassist and multi-instrumentalist for almost 20 years, Oliver found it hard to refuse a live show. The prime issue and concern was that playing one instrument with a backing track might be a bit boring for the audience, but considering the short time and huge popularity of similar shows in Scandinavian countries, Oliver decided to give himself and Sandmist a try to expose it's art to loyal local metalheads.
Will see how it goes on Saturday (13th July 2013) and re-blog after the show.
Until then take care and hope to see you at the festival!
