Marcus Denight - Legends of the Imminent Winter

Record: 2016 • Edition: 2018 • USC-WR-1802.0403
Traditional Electronic, New Age

The silent winter chill gave sparkling tenderness. Blue freshness blazed, pushing away chains of darkness. And in this snowy tanglement the distance shone under the moonlight. Windy dreams hurried to the cold branches. Fluffy snow like shores of glowing vasts; the azure of skies is home of clearness: shaky shapes are barely visible through blueness. Round dance of memories circled loudly along with it in motion of frozen sounds in crystal icy whiteness. And there’s is incomprehensible mystery hidden in every snowflake fallen to the ground. Late sunrises meet someone’s dreams, while winter outside the window is composing a new legends — legends of the imminent winter...

Aquatone - Mental Images

Record: 2015-2017 • Edition: 2017 • USC-WR-1707.0368
Psy-Ambient, World, Trance

Mankind loves mysteries... Whatever success the science achieves, we still continue to seek far beyond its limits. Who are we? What am “I”? Is it just a body or brain? Or a thought? And where are my own borders? Can I evolutionize endlessly? Since ancient times tribes besought for the sacraments. For centuries lonesome stalkers tried to comprehend sacral secrets. We have even penetrated into the atom in order to take more and to make the greatest. We imagine, conceptualize, dream! The fantasy draws images of our infinite possession and control over matter and journeys out of the worlds. In our fairytales heroes awake dragons, dig into Earth’s entrails, re-create the Paradise... Who are we but the race of scientists conducting experiments with ourselves? What else shall we imagine about the world and about ourselves, and where the wings of adventures will bring us in coming centuries?

Vortex Mechanic - Questions to Eternity

Record: 2016-2017 • Edition: 2018 • USC-WR-1705.0360
Space Ambient, Noise Ambient

Whole life consists of questions. We begin to ask them when we realize ourselves as a person, and continue until we dissolve into nothingness. On the path of life we ​​are accompanied by a variety of doubts and fears – they hide deep inside, even if we do not notice it. Once alone in the face of Eternity, we encounter our own existential fears. Our mind has protective mechanisms that defend us. But even they can fall under the pressure of circumstances, breaking the worldview, leading to uncertainty, indifference and loss of faith in everything, giving rise to doubt in the meaningfulness of life without a higher destiny. Religion was once an effective answer to all questions. Faith in a just God who will never leave us alone, saved us from the pain of reason, giving the will to existence. However, reality poses more and more questions, on which religions are not able to give adequate answers. Humanity was exposed defenseless to the soulless eyes of Eternity. And it has to find what question to ask.

Space Ambient

"...Following the results of observations we came to a conclusion, that the parameters of the star allowed that it had an Earth-like planets. Who knows, maybe Delta Pavonis is destined to become a new sun for mankind. We made calculations, built a spaceship for long-range flight and prepared an expedition. Cosmonauts were cast into anabiosis to go through G-force easier and to reduce resource consuming. The onboard computer was obligated to control the spaceship’s course as well as crew’s state. In a distance of tens of billions kilometers retrorockets ignited. Meanwhile the star gradually grew in objective lenses of cameras. Onboard navigation system made calculations and built up the trajectory: the fourth planet orbiting in the habitable zone. While the spaceship was approaching, the machines collected data: atmospheric gases, temperature and ground-level pressure, humidity and weather conditions, radiation level, thickness of ozone layer and strength of magnetic field, as well as search for traces of life. Happily the planet turned out to be similar to Earth in many properties, and the next step was to determine a landing site and a place for building of the future colony. Robots deployed a planetary base and began comprehensive works to prepare for the moment when the human himself could take the first step into this brand-new world…"

Visionary Worlds - Feelings

Record: 2015 • Edition: 2015 • USC-WR-1511.0290
Progressive Trance, Uplifting Trance

What is filling us, inspiring and making alive? What does the inner world of man hide – is it heaven or hell? A lot of things are woven into it: collected knowledge, experienced feelings, a burden of memories. Which of them to keep, and which to get rid of forever? Consciously and unconsciously, we create our own world: quiet harbors and noisy squares, bright lights of glass cases and shades of courtyards – a spectacular attraction of ups and downs, a session at the cinema of destiny, which projector emits the light diffusing the shackles of darkness. Through the filters of our feelings and delusions, the image gets placed upon the outside world, and we watch our dramas and comedies, occasionally forgetting that the source of light is inside us…

Derek Nigell - Distant Ocean

Record: 2017 • Edition: 2017 • USC-WR-1712.0393
Space Ambient, Berlin School, New Age

Boundless ocean has opened his embrace... He shall thrill me with his tremendous majesty! He bathed tenderly the planet’s coasts with waves, and has compounded the mysteries and riddles, having hidden depths from us. He has paved the depth contour of weird tablelands and basins with nautic creatures. And sounds of magical waves, seagulls’ cry and dolphins’ voice, the low bass of whales – everything is dear to my heart! He has opened the miraculous distant world before our eyes, and enchanted us with its variety. Oh Ocean, you are endless in your magnificence! We tried so long to comprehend you: your vasts are indomitable, secrets are almost unknown, thoughts are beyond all reason! And a sailor begs for a grace taking road, while mothers and wives await for their relatives. Oh Ocean, you are the life of Earth, its salt, the embodiment of world’s harmony, I sing a hymn in your honor!

Aquatone - Synthetic Clouds

Record: 2011-2017 • Edition: 2017 • USC-WR-1712.0391
Futurepop, Spacesynth

You know, as they used to say: “there is a cloudless future ahead of us!”, without investing much meaning into these words. Why do the clouds really matter? Sometimes they hide the Sun and the stars, and emit the light as by themselves, creating a unique spectacle. Silently floating across the sky they remind us of something familiar – the silhouettes of people and animals, the outlines of things – and go on their way, fragile and changeable. Who would have thought that the future without clouds is capable of destroying life on the planet… Man treated nature so carelessly: exploited its resources, caused technogenic disasters, polluted the atmosphere and in every possible way crippled the unfortunate Earth. In the end she could not stand it – something broke in the ecosystem, and the climate changed. The clouds, which served as a natural shield against harmful ultraviolet, melted. As explained by scientists, the circulation of water vapor in the atmosphere was disrupted. The sky appeared forbidden. Even a short stay under it became deadly. Many forms of life unable to adapt to new conditions became extinct, others had to look for ways to survive. Then the top brains threw all their forces to search for the solution and found it – the synthesis of the clouds. The construction of cloud factories was unfolded, and soon clouds appeared again in the firmament. And one day the world woke up under a new artificial sky.

Marcus Denight - Between Light of the Sun and Gray Moon

Record: 2017 • Edition: 2017 • USC-WR-1710.0383
Space Ambient, New Age, Electro

The Moon and the Sun. The Sun and The Moon. Two luminaries. Two hearts. Two legends originating from the birth of the Universe. They are the ones that jealous stars whisper about, looking around fearfully in the night sky. Silent witnesses of our life journeys, the Sun and the Moon! Countless myths and legends are written about them. In the moments of mysterious eclipses frightening with their unpredictability people stared at the sky with sacred awe and raised their arms as if they tried to implore forgiveness of heaven. The Moon and the Sun. You bestowed light and warmth to our far ancestors. Centuries will pass, whole millennia will sink into oblivion, but still you will look at our descendants. Bless them! Be merciful to them!.. Having left earth, the hopes of days Still keep their beauty evergreen. The heights of feelings lost in silence Sometimes awake those memories. How far divided we are now By endless roads of destiny And by remembrance of the lightest years Between the light of the Sun and the gray Moon. There still remains a hidden corner, Where at the sunset of the brightest lines A unique land has got its shape.
