Released November 16, 2012
The 2011 Original Studio Version of Opus 0 was written and recorded especially for the “Rokerji pojejo pesnike” (Rockers Sing the Poets) compilation, in the context of which musicians set the poems by various Slovenian poets to music. So obviously the track was in Slovenian for a change.
“Opus 0” is Cynicism Management’s contribution to the project, and the poem sung here as lyrics is “Opus nič” by the renowned poet Ervin Fritz. It’s a rather hilarious ditty about death and senselessness of it all (at least as far as those with a specific sense of humour are concerned – others may find it somewhat pessimistic).
Opus 0 (RPP 2011 Original Studio Version) was included in the seventh edition of the RPP compilation, released in 2011.
Opus 0 (RPP 2011 Live Acoustic Version) was recorded live at the Rokerji pojejo pesnike 2011 concert in the Bellevue hotel in the Mariborsko Pohorje hills. It was published on the 2012 Rokerji pojejo pesnike 8 compilation (Akord Records / Subkulturni azil, 2012). Sound engineer & mix: Daniel Bauman. Mastering: Stojan Kralj.
Opus 0 (Second Chance Blown Remix) is a remix by Aljoša Mislej of the band Second Chance Blown from Izola, Slovenia.
