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.

Vortex Mechanic - Questions to Eternity

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.

Rigel Centaurus -
Колония. Часть первая = The Colony. Part One

Record: 2015-2016 • Edition: 2016 • USC-WR-1802.0402
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…"

Derek Nigell - Distant Ocean

Record: 2017 • Edition: 2017 • USC-WR-1712.0393
Space Ambient, Berlin School, New Age

Boundless ocean has opened his embrace... He shall thrill me with his tremendous majesty! He bathed tenderly the planet’s coasts with waves, and has compounded the mysteries and riddles, having hidden depths from us. He has paved the depth contour of weird tablelands and basins with nautic creatures. And sounds of magical waves, seagulls’ cry and dolphins’ voice, the low bass of whales – everything is dear to my heart! He has opened the miraculous distant world before our eyes, and enchanted us with its variety. Oh Ocean, you are endless in your magnificence! We tried so long to comprehend you: your vasts are indomitable, secrets are almost unknown, thoughts are beyond all reason! And a sailor begs for a grace taking road, while mothers and wives await for their relatives. Oh Ocean, you are the life of Earth, its salt, the embodiment of world’s harmony, I sing a hymn in your honor!

Berlin School, Ambient

«I love this place. Here, there is a unique atmosphere at any season. On that chilly summer evening when I came here with my friend Alexey, the air was especially thick and filled with bittersweet wettish freshness. Here, you fall into a special state, sitting on the recently scythed grass and looking down from the hill at power lines stretching away. It is here where several little worlds come together: a forest to the left and the right, a tiny village living its hasteless life under the hill, and the slight noise of a bustling city coming from far behind. And above, the steel giants of power line towers soaring against the darkening summer sky, which soon will be cut across by the Perseids. It is here where you take a rest from the hustle, and music itself fills your mind to later find its material form.»

Various Artists - Music for Sputnik-1 Vol. 1

Record: 2000-2017 • Edition: 2017 • USC-WR-1710.0381
Berlin School, Ambient, Spacesynth, Indietronica, Modern Classical

Sputnik-1 is a symbol of the embodiment of a dream into reality. When all the forces are thrown at its achievement, despite the pressure of circumstances, despite the internal turmoil in the people and the country. In 60 years after this event, we can only feel the echoes of the former glory and aspirations, but even this fills us with pride for our people, the Soviet Union and the Russian Federation, no matter what side events have marred this milestone in history. This is the main focus of our collection.

«It was during a walk with my friend Nickolay. Despite the fact that it was summer, the weather was really autumnal, gloomy. We were going along the route – the forest belt, and then, in an instant, the forest went apart, and we found ourselves at the place, where the giants had been living. Steel silent idols were in fact the power line towers. A light twilight; the magnificence of the giants, who stood with their legs wide apart and arms outstretched aside to hold power lines firmly. With their heads they propped up the sky, as if emphasizing their greatness and significance. Are they lonely and silent? Not at all! They are talking to each other: slowly, in a low voice. They are wired!»

Lost-Radio - Remember

Record: 2012-2013 • Edition: 2014 • USC-WR-1412.0237
Drone Ambient

Story? It's difficult to say... Herein something purely personal is enclosed. Dense concentrate convolved to the minimum volume: hence the complexity of the penetration into it though seeming plain, inside - depth. Echoes of remembrances are implicitly soaring in the surrounding space, becoming iteratively enhanced by the memory. That was and did imprint itself in mind, but the time ruthlessly destroys images, often washing away the circumstances and details, leaving only hints. There's an own charm - the basis for an embellished reality, full of just bright events, covering with an avalanche of bustle. Touching the thin veil, separating reality and reveries, intangible, enveloping consciousness on the verge of perception. And behind it - the heavy fog of oblivion, secret desires and lost dreams.

Radio Silence - Elements

Record: 2008-2009 • Edition: 2014 • USC-WR-1411.0233
Traditional Electronic, Chillout, New Age

Mosaic of sleeps, dreams beckoning behind them, weightless reveries about the forthcoming, opening doors into a fairytale. Total release from the gravity of everyday life, impetuous flight of fantasy over clouds, far and wide - beyond the horizon. Elements of a game, so enticing and deceptive - just excite imagination. Mysterious landscapes painted by the keen artist's hand are attracting like a mirage - salutary oasis of perfection. There's nothing better to think up than to throw oneself and to sink in wonderful blaze, to fall into pieces all over parallel worlds without coming back.

Mornastra - Light Echo

Record: 2013-2014 • Edition: 2014 • USC-WR-1411.0231
Traditional Electronic, Spacesynth, New Age

Echo is reflection of waves. Light is the most lightweight matter which fills the space. It is reflected by many objects, and these reflections form a significant part of visible world. Light echo is an envoy from areas of the Universe so far away, that a human cannot comprehend. Estimating enormous speed of light and scale of cosmic distances, we can imagine light echo as a kind of time machine giving us an opportunity to take a look at event happened millions and billions years ago. At the same time light can draw not only pictures. In itself it is a reservoir of energy, which development is able to open horizons of the future beyond any fantasy.

Lost-Radio - Between

Record: 2013-2014 • Edition: 2014 • USC-WR-1410.0227
Drone Ambient

This album is about a feeling so strong that it makes one to forget the native distances and to wait in the wet grey alley for hours, despite of cold wind and drizzling rain. To wait for what? And then the memories arise. About the yore. About this alley, about these eyes. There comes the sensation of presence... The presence of the one about whom you reminisce. Though this is just seeming presence. But is the seeming true? In the end it becomes clear that there are no innocents in this world. Every deed has a range of consequences, going far into the future. Seemingly every innocent gesture, every innocent sight drags a certain chain of events after themselves. All we are guilty in something. There are no innocents.

Евгений Науменко (Eugene Naumenko) - 2000 лет (2000 Years)

Record: 2014 • Edition: 2014 • USC-WR-1410.0225
Modern Classical, Space, Post-Rock

Space inspires. So our hero, inspired by long trips of predecessors, flies into the unknown. This is a flight to see the beauty of space with own eyes, to get closer to stellar nurseries - nebulae, and to lonely white dwarfs, who have lived their wild youth, attaining their age in quiet fade. An encounter with an asteroid, ploughing vasts of the giant Universe from times immemorial, leads to the idea of solitude. Tired wanderer lands his ship on it. In this tiny world natural treasures are so plentiful, and reigning rest and silence are so fascinating, that our hero can linger here, away from any human vices and anguish, for two thousand years - even forever.

Indietronica, Trip-Hop, Lounge

In the day of present the world may lack positive emotions and a dream. Offered amusements are often featureless, monotonous and boring. What if we inject some melody and joie de vivre into this gray mass? Something familiar and dear, that where it all began, what invariably evokes inspiration and gives vital impulse. Straightforward bright dance music, bringing joy and good cheer. Enveloping dreamy music, carrying away into the sky in pursuit of the clouds. So here it is!

Vortex Mechanic - Forecasting the Future

Traditional Electronic, Berlin School, Psy-Ambient

Future. Forthcoming. The state of time which will certainly happen and take form of the present. But in this instance future is not a state of time, future is a state of society, culture and science. Being in progress, the world follows from age to age, and then a moment comes when every dweller on Earth may say for sure: "Yes, I'm already living in the future now, it has come!". This state of society ripens very slowly, but inevitably - hereof futurists, scientists and sociologists say. Touch of the future can be felt more and more in the present. And one day, as quite occasionally, but leaving no doubts, so rapidly the age of tomorrow comes and enters everyday life of everyone. Let's look what is occurring around us. Reuniting all factors, we can say with confidence, that the future is already knocking at our doors! We live in the century of premonition of aftertime - a little more and it will come. Are we ready for this?

WMRI - Saturated Summer

Ambient, Symphonic, Cinematic

Flower scents fill the hot air mixed into a lavish bouquet. Sun hangs in a clear blue sky slowly cooking the planet. Shivering haze rises over the incandescent ground: paints on horizon smear and flow in entangled patterns. In this realm of heat and moisture greens grow rapidly: grasses, flowers, ferns, bushes and trees, as if competing with each other for a place under the sun, spread on vast areas with meadows, fields and forests. Incessant even for a moment chirr symphony of various insect species is heard on all sides, floats on the waves of waving ears driven by the wind. Dynamic life forms a unique picture full of the most saturated colors.

Indietronica, Lounge, Ambient, Minimal

Birds fly high in the sky and look at the swarming life on earth. Their flight begins in the wintertime, and they move towards the South, overcoming enormous distances. They see quaint landscapes and lofty mountains, tumultuous rivers and their cliffy banks, lowlands and highlands. Just a bird's regular day of a free floating in the lucid heights that is perceived as a borderless travel in an incredible calmness with the serene feeling of the clear blue firmament.

Sergey Kolesnikov - Early Dreams

Record: 2011-2012 • Edition: 2014 • USC-WR-1408.0212
Traditional Electronic, Berlin School

Such a long history of mankind, numbering tens of millennia, is dappled with white specks of obscurity. We know only scattered episodes from life of the ancient ancestors, which they tried to transmit to next generations as much as possible. Great volume of knowledge is lost, destroyed or kept back by destructive progress, aiming to the future like an arrow without looking back, while the past is being covered by sands of time, and myths and legends come to surrogate invaluable traditions. We can only guess, how the ancient looked at natural phenomena, which thoughts and conceptions emerged in their mind. Most likely they comprehended things even better than we do in our dashing time, as they had a whole eternity for thinking and observation. Crumbs of knowledge, conjectures and speculations, which were able to collect, are expressed here by traditional electronic music in the Berlin school style.

Open your mind to the world, plunge into its beauty and then come up to the surface renewed from inside. Take the opportunity to feel once felt and see once seen that is expressed in this music.

Rigel Centaurus - Центр галактики (Galactic Center)

Record: 2013 • Edition: 2014 • USC-WR-1405-0206
Space

Galactic center is relatively small - about 1000 parsecs. Hidden behind the clouds of gas and dust, it is a real stellar nursery. The formation of galaxy began here. Around the giant space monster - a supermassive black hole located in the heart of the galaxy, stellar population is most plentiful. If the stars in the center of the galaxy have civilizations, they may be billions of years older than humanity. During this time they could have reached a level of development that comparing to us they are like gods, which as a wise guardians of the order watching the fragile mechanism of galaxy, skillfully adjust and fix it, keeping the balance of power in space.
