Opdot comprises the duo of Tim Laverack and Gavin Kirtley, who have a musical eye for detail and an ear for melody, textures and mood.

Originally interested in Musique Concrète, Opdot's Tim began to fuse its ideals with a new found love of Underground House. However it was creating music for the after parties that led him to the creation of Opdot's emerging sound. The Opdot concept was conceived late one night in a post party bunker known as the Rave Cave - spontaneous jam with an unknown DJ led Laverack to think about applying his formative classical training to electronic beats.

The project moved forward when Tim enlisted the help of his good friend and musician, Gavin Kirtley, whose interest in recording technology and knowledge of electronics was ideally suited to the development such a concept. At the time both were playing together in an Indie band called Little Me.

Kirtley's idiosyncratic bass lines were a major constituent of Little Me' s sound, and it was this talent that further developed Opdot's musical language. After several years of performing all around the country with Little Meat venues such as the Garage, Dublin Castle and The Cavern both Tim and Gavin took the decision to set time aside to foster their new brainchild child together.
