Gediminas Bytautas - Nonexistence of Existence

Record: 2006-2010 • Edition: 2013 • USC-WR-1307.0164
Industrial, Experimental

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.

Saty - Melting Points

In a chaotic world of abstract objects there might be something. Maybe you'll be lucky enough to find something interesting in micro-level.

Record: 2011 • Edition: 2013 • USC-WR-1302.0149

Saty - Introlence

Record: 2012 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1212.0136
Ambient, Industrial

Inner space is made with sets of sounds scattered within the void and moving on erratic tracklines. Music dips attention into flowing abstract landscapes.

mutmut - Utter

Record: 2001 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1211.0122
Lowercase, Experimental

Music for individuals, who believe in ordinary of post-modern conceptions of language and also in transformer vault's mystic essence. The collage of separate diverse scenes presented as stills of possible tragic or weird events. Made in a tradition of early electronic music, it shows the dull pictures of polar station, maybe abandoned and partially deenergized, odd labs with obscure aggregation, containers with viscous liquids. In general, all that we have a great opportunity to watch in science fiction films.

Soft Note & Sinu Spiral - Offworld

Record: 2012 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1210.0115
Ambient, Experimental

Prepare your space suits! Unknown planets and corners of the universe are waiting for you. Being inspired by science fiction of 70-90s and using vintage analogue synthesizers, the authors do not copy classics, but represent a lot of sound experiments, reconstructing cosmic atmosphere.

sokpb avabodha - Simply Analogue

Record: 2012 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1209.0094

Some experiments on sound in vein of Requiem for an Analogue Signal.

Common Ratio - HD-Dreams

Record: 2012 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1207.0068
Avantgarde, Noise, Experimental

Waiting for the opening of the subway. Phantasmagoria with electric swamp and its mechanical residents, neon forest and haze where it is so easy to get lost. A ball of urban weekdays. Pathos of the authorities and poverty in homes. Mass migration. Prostration. Arizona desert, dust in the eyes. Average European July in the eastern traditions of Zen. Indulging in free and unpredictable, but clever improvisations, the author creates a gallery of abstract shapes, as elusive and ethereal as dreams.

Mr. Gaus - Everybody Lives

Record: 2010 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1206.0062
Ambient, Experimental

Are you ready to listen? You can learn a lot if you have a will to listen. Lend an ear to yourself to hear the voice that can lead through the thorns of being. Ignoring inner voice may throw you in the search that results in a false identity which is the alloy of others' thoughts. You should trust your essence, accepting an attitude of things and your internal beauty. Express the passion with the deepest sense. Crush the illusions made by malevolent persons, chasing a minute benefit. Everyone has a his own view on how to make the life. Everybody lives.

WMRI - Minor Objects

Record: 2006-2007 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1206.0058
Traditional Electronic

The historic collection that gathers early tracks, originally released as singles. This curious part of WMRI discography was nearly unknown for most listeners until now. Different interpretations of album tracks and accompanying b-sides are written in various styles of melodic synthesizer music, sometimes more psychedelic and sometimes epic or even acoustic. The compilation is not a simple sequence of the singles, all tracks are ordered to get better perception.

Mr. Gaus - Cutting Edge

Record: 2009 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1205.0057
Ambient, Industrial

Step by step goes the time. Cog beats cog is a turn. Be on the bleeding edge of a progress or be a cogwheel if you want. Not possible to catch a moment - you think while it's gone. Hold the pulse for an instant to comprehend. See the wonders with your eyes on the run. Take the bliss - nobody would do this for you. Optimum is maximum at a minimum. Don't take much - take the whole. Don't stay long - better go. Get it fast - this is how.

WMRI - Drifting in Silence

Record: 2009 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1204.0046
Space, Minimal

The sixth and the last EP in Black Concept Series. One long slowly evolving piece with main theme repeating from the beginning to an end surrounded with little synth movements. The final piece of series is smooth, silent and feels like universal slumber at the end of an aeon. The track is recorded at one go and totally improvised.

WMRI - Spiral Void

Record: 2009 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1204.0042
Dark Ambient, Drone Ambient

The second EP in Black Concept Series of six. Experimental and repetitive ambient, dark in nature and gradually evolving. Slow maelstrom of cyclic drones pierced by thin threads of ghostly synth sounds pulls you into minimalistic atmosphere of an inescapable cold void spiraling deeper from nothing to nothing.

One Day of February - Uncharted

Record: 2010 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1204.0037
Indietronica

Secret routes to the new musical areas. They are boldly marked on the musical map with broad strokes of style combinations of indie rock percussion and melodic electronics. High-speed short compositions create landscapes in one moment and fill them with colorful details: forests, rivers, fields and meadows.

Saty - Orbstatic

Record: 2011 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1203.0035
Drone Ambient

This piece of art is not about melody and has no form. The amorphous curves created of nothing evolve into fanciful objects are employed into various scenes. The grand spectacle is opened in ones sight spiced with scraps of reality. Any human involvement is hidden under the impression of sound shaped by nobody, rather something beyond the grasp of the mind. It sheds from the fracture of unrevealed shapes to play with your consciousness and rush away into abyss.

WMRI - Shelter

Record: 2008 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1203.0032
Dark Ambient, Industrial

The album dark as the night. It is separated into two parts. First part consists of four drifting and droning tracks fading each other. Second part consists of a long complex track and shorter track that's actually a Shelter main theme. While first part is mostly based around deep low drones, surrounding sounds and minimal, except a noisy drone piece in the end, the second part is based on industrial echoes, longer piece starts with some even melodic theme and moves towards to the emotionless drift with minor drone beats and for the second section the far bell sounds appear. Shelter theme is a separate topic for discussion as it's a complete scene of factory interior: hammer-like drone beats and noise splashes give the unique feeling of a safe and dangerous place at once. The idea of noise splashes was later used once again in Wires.

sokpb avabodha - Реквием по аналоговому сигналу (Requiem for an Analogue Signal)

Record: 2009 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1203.0030
Experimental, Dark Ambient, Noise

Improvisation recorded in real time with no further processing. Very experimental record researching the stages of signal processing, moving from noise to dark drones. These soundscapes are getting more mysterious as the processing goes. The last part of the title composition gets completely twisted with effects featuring the harrowing screams of some abstract creatures.

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.

WMRI - Sound Archives 2003-2006

Record: 2003-2006 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1201.0001
Traditional Electronic, Ambient, Space, Synthpop

This box collects all of the earlier full-length releases of WMRI, some of which are published for first time on the web. Moreover, all included materials are original masters as they were first meant to be, even the original track titles were saved. These versions aren't considered authentic, but either historic or relic. The reference versions are four of these albums that were remastered and expanded in 2008 and released under the title First Wave. All these materials are going to be remastered soon or late, but for now this fills the holes in your WMRI collection.
