WMRI - Deep Forest

Record: 2006 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1201.0014
Traditional Electronic

This unique release is built around main title track Deep Forest, which is actually a pre-WMRI track made by other member Alex Ilin. It was covered with dust for 3 years after recording and first issued only in 2006. It later remained in shadow of more popular Voices of Space and didn't get proper spread. Now it's a really precious gem with ageing more than eight years, but still sounding fresh and impressive. To be more alluring it is supported by other tracks of Alex recorded jointly with Mike Winchester. This is absolutely different look at WMRI music.

Common Ratio - Clubbing Outside

Record: 2011 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1201.0013
IDM, Dubstep, Experimental

Nuclear mix of all genres and styles that influenced Common Ratio sound is used here as a refund for all taken moves and ideas. Tracks go one after another drawing the somber urban sketches of gray American life. And then our look rises to the height from the dirty street. Flocculent clouds are flowing in dull sky. Occasional birds appear from every quarter and dive into the muddy stratosphere soup making steep turns. They see the beauty of precise architecture from such an altitude and we are morally with them - this is magnificent!

sokpb avabodha - Трава / Грань (Grass / The Edge)

Record: 2005 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1201.0008
Drone Ambient

sokpb avabodha entered the world of drone ambient with this epic work. He found his sound in processing acoustic guitar, collected sounds using microphone and TV tuner. Vast and wide canvas of this music is priceless. Slow and sensitive like the flowing summer wind, this music illustrates the monotonous processes, helps you imagine the growing grass or the shining sun. You shouldn't expect anything happen or even change, this is like looking on the static picture finding new details every time you look at it.

This is nuclear performance for Geiger counter and cogwheel orchestra.

Imagine a dark corridor. Have you? It could have lamps of course, but the light doesn't even reach the floor, it's covered with darkness. Do you fear this situation? And if does the exit disappear at once, like it never existed? Corridor is prolonging both sides, its length - infinity. The darkness gorges the remainder of dimmed light until only the dark corridor is left. And hey, what's the rustling up there?

In an attempt to create new stuff SKAARJ mixes classical ambient with elements of industrial, techno and noise in a conceptual album. «The Human and the World» is like a different point of view on a modern globalized mankind and a history of a person inside it trying to find oneself. Using only outdated software and archival samples most of which are made before 1997, analogue synthesizers and 8-track editor SKAARJ produces the true old school sound of the 20th century.
