WMRI - Desert Dreams

Record: 2007 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1202.0024
Traditional Electronic, Berlin School

Desert life is not as monotonous as it may seem to be at first sight. If you look narrowly at it you can notice a lot of details. The first impression is vast yellow ocean of sand. The wind twists whirls above it and, as a great architect, constantly builds dunes and barkhans. And he does not like when strangers enter his landscapes, and summons sandstorm, hiding their tracks and sweeping away everything from his domains. Salvation can only be in oasis - a small island of life. However, sometimes the desert seems to stand, and only a thin strip of horizon divides the yellow ocean and the azure sky. And when night falls, darkness veils the desert, and only bright light of the stars in the cloudless sky is pulling away from oblivion.

One Day of February - Another

Record: 2011 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1202.0023
Indietronica

Another impression, another approach, another vision, another reality. Everything mentioned has nothing to do with this album. Its meaning - the following, one more. Composer decided to continue the ideas of his previous album, to fill them with more depth and to show once again to find several interpretations of similar sounds and movements. Once again he builds and destroys colorful epic images in the blink of an eye, reaching the highest point of the art in the frame of his own minimalistic conception.

Holzweg - The Birds

Record: 2007 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1202-0022
Ambient, Modern Classical, New Age

This album of Holzweg combines melodic electronic music with chillout and new age moods. Dreamy and light compositions draw images of a morning city covered with shining haze in sunrise. Slow parts of music evoke a sense of thoughtful tranquility, and more dynamic tunes transform it into waiting of a new day, full of experiences, but not fussy. Run of time seems to slow down to allow us to feel and to see all beauty and majesty of this world.

sokbp avabodha & WMRI - Music for Fields

Record: 2010 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1202.0021
Drone Ambient, New Age

The long epic recording made by two ambient composers. Soundscape music of vast space. Minimalistic drone sketches, which become more complex during the flow of music. Immovable and homogeneous field is what should be imagined to these sounds of contemplation. Absolutely calmness and a uniform current of time. Only an infinite field - same in any day.

Saty - Simulacra

Record: 2010 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1202.0020
Ambient, World

Music of this Saty's work transmits a little piece of Eastern wisdom. Skillful and sophisticated use of traditional Eastern instruments combines with ethereal electronic pads - it is a real mastery, worthy the most careful attention. The composer has made a great musical exploration and found those important particles which are completely able to transmit spirit and beauty of Eastern traditions. The album is divided on two logical parts. The first is more common and represents traditional ambient with slow sound evolution. The second part paints visions of the city Mumbai in India and is more instrumental, sometimes adjoining with traditional ragas.

Ptarkh - Страх (Fear)

Record: 2010 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1202.0019
Dark Ambient, Industrial, Noise

This play tells that the world has become at the brink of nuclear war, deterrence was the general practice, however some missiles have reached their targets. The greater part of the narration is the track UnAmerica, which opens a technogenic zone of high radiation in front of us. It is an image of processes destructing every life and non-organic substance. It is an energy evaporating everything it influences. Sole survivors hopelessly force through infected zones searching for a little isle of life. It is a deadly harvest of mankind progress... and there is nothing left but fear.

sokpb avabodha - Прогулка (The Walk)

Record: 2009 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1202.0017
Drone Ambient, Dark Ambient

A slow drift of common events in small park - the theme of the first half of this floating mass. Surrounding sounds and voices make a feeling of calmness and harmony. However this serene being is ruined in the wink of an eye. Skies are covering with heavy turbid black smoke-screen. Ground is etched with cracks and pits. Voices are drowning in noise. The old factory launches the run of its corroded machinery...

Secret Keys - In the City of Clouds

Record: 2009 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1202.0016
Modern Classical, Ambient

Sparkling minimalism of keys tells for itself and paints amusing pictures. They are made in two moods: light as an airy marshmallow or chilly wind and gloomy as evil thoughts or sudden storm clouds. The light part flashes in positive cheer and sustains the calm and monotonous atmosphere. When the darker side bursts the change in a perception is evident. The music can sound loud and solemn in an empty room, as an enigmatic ritual, dismal in times it forces you glance around for a moment. It is great soundtrack for a day with pressure drops, unsettled weather and mood swings. But this fragile obsession may over if you just pull the plug falling out into the reality

Saty - Monument

Record: 2010 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1201.0015
Drone Ambient

Celestial mechanics is a great mystery and no one knows its arrangement. Saty opens a way to cognition in art form. Deep compositions are able to give you the mental food. Monumental canvas woven from stellar energy and particles gradually forms into a solid world which destiny is foreordained.
