WMRI - New Axis of Turning

Record: 2012 • Edition: 2013 • USC-WR-1312.0200
Traditional Electronic, Berlin School, Experimental

We are used to perceive the world as we see and feel it. This is called reality, at least for most. But the search for new territories of perception never ends. What if there's another reality that we can't sense, because of our limited perception of the Universe? Another dimensions that exist in parallel to ours, superimpose each other like the layers of a multilayer cake. It is quite possible that they are out of reach, and we can only guess that they occur, at best feel some illusive emanation of other world. Who knows...

Radio Silence - Solaristica

Record: 2011 • Edition: 2013 • USC-WR-1312.0199
Traditional Electronic, Psy-Ambient, Chillout

Science has reached an impasse, proved to be futile and helpless. Man has mistaken, thinking that he can solve any mysteries of the Universe. Sometimes nature remains cognition superior, and the human desire to find dissimilar intelligence - just a desire to find an intelligence similar to human. Looking into the unknown of cosmos and not being able to comprehend it, a man discovers that he sees only a reflection of his own fears and desires.

Robotic structures made from basic blocks are progressing, build each other like a giant meccano producing tens of ready mechanisms every minute. This is an electronic nightmare in which one may get caught. An endless maze-world from which there is no escape. Would it wish to let you go?

We are surrounded by a diverse and dynamic world. Something happens and changes every second in it. The set tempo is incredible for a single person. Our schedule of existence turns into an endless series of programmed actions, and we get tired or even break. But sometimes we put the game on pause in time and leave the controls to find peace and quiet. Interval when all the unnecessary and distracting dims and goes into the background, and vice versa all the important finds brightness and stands out among the noisy bustle. Moment of unity with the genuine things in the world and this life.

Record: 2013 • Edition: 2013 • USC-WR-1312.0196
Traditional Electronic, Berlin School

This is an expression of desire to learn the ideas of modern theoretical physics and natural sciences as a whole. This is a view from the side at what is happening with science and human thought. This is a search of something, not simply imperceptible and being beyond understanding, but such that could explain causation of everything. New interpretation of paths followed by the modern physics, redefinition of the universal laws and doubts which are reinforced by the new revolutionary movements in science, lead to thought that all the tangled trails of research, by and large, - just a long way to nowhere.

Night transforms the ordinary world, rolling with an irresistible wave over the secret corners of the soul. Sometimes it brings sorrowful experience to the surface - a vague feeling of wrong decisions, desire to go back in time to correct mistakes. It seems that a man aims to the stars, to high ideals, but the backside of his nature pulls into insanity and evil. Glares on crests of the night wave alternate with impenetrable blackness.

Infinity swirls by nebulae and currents of radiation hides in time folds, appears sometimes among the people and disappears immediately. Wondering about nature of temporal matters, we realize suddenly that we are sowing Eternity here and now, right from the board of spaceship, time and again rushing after the shadow of fellow Voyager 2 into depths of the unknown, twinkling mysteriously straight ahead, stunningly near and inconceivably far.

Quantum Mechanics - Waves, Fields & Particles

Record: 2011 • Edition: 2013 • USC-WR-1309.0176
Traditional Electronic, Berlin School

Quantum mechanics is not simply a branch of physics or some direction in science. Quantum mechanics is a very different conception on the reality around us and about our place in the world. To understand what it means, here is an example of such idea: if two interrelated electron are divided by space as big as the universe, and we affect one of them, the second electron instantly react to changes with the first. This is not a signal between them - it is the relationship as a single whole system. If we bear in mind that the universe came from the one Big Bang, then reality surrounding us is a single entity, and everything we perceive is the design of this whole.

Movement is essential for life. When you look around, you see the dynamic processes everywhere: so it was, so it is, so it will be. But when the objects stop and rest, they are likely fall out of a running stream and become nonexistent for those, who are moving. They are in their own system of interaction, concentrated on the inner evolution. There are two states of nonexistence: before and after stir - two seeming existences, because still objects are real for each other, while different by intentions. This seeming reality is called nonexistence of existence.

Memories are the thing very fragile by their nature. They are individual and exist only in the scopes of ones mind. Remembrances riven into pieces and lacklustered by passed ages may become rather misleading, embellished by healing time. Anything happens making the life variegated mozaic of color-form multitude. Some of these pieces find the connection, assimilate with each other into something new making the unique pattern of self-consciousness.

Eispollaetidespota is a word that means very special musical vision and creative labor that connected musicians of this project. Soundscapes and thoughts that appeal to the themes of human, emotions, spirit, nature and technology. An attempt to find harmony inside oneself and reconcile to the world. This is difficult and often gives rise to a momentary rapture and then anxiety. Naive melodies help to be alone. Reckon on the small house at the coast that keeps the hearth, cosiness and comfort. On the outside is the open unexplored wilderness. Simple landscapes of the near North that could be understood just by watching intently. Redundant words are everywhere, conceal the internal meaning of the music, escaping from any tokens.
