WMRI - Iolite Abyss

Record: 2018 • Edition: 2018 • USC-WR-1802.0404
Space Ambient

The deep-sea world contains many mysteries. It is almost unexplored, as only a few obsessed researchers went to dark depths. The bizarre relief pattern extends for many miles, rising and falling smoothly, disappearing in the cliffs and reappearing from the void. The entanglement of water streams piercing the boundless reservoirs with its net and rushing in unknown directions. The world of depth is full of amazing creatures of nature, many of which exist there for thousands or even millions of years practically unchanged. This environment is extreme for most living beings, which also protects these creatures from unnecessary attention. Huge pressure has prompted these organisms to adapt, making their appearance completely unearthly. The sun's rays are scattered and decayed at such depth, the outlines and details of the underwater ridges are dying out, and behind the cloudy shroud there opens an abyss in the colors of the iolite.

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...

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?

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…"
