Just like in any proper tale, there is an antagonist - villain Kirai named Burning the Tears for his mercilessness and blindness to tears of the innocent victims.

Traditional Electronic, New Age, Chillout

The Silk Road... Caravan pathway connecting East Asia with Mediterranean in ancient times and Middle ages. The Silk Road played a great role in the development of the economic and cultural relations of the peoples in the middle East, the Caucasus, Central Asia and China. For example, it served as a conductor of the spread of knowledge and innovation, including creativity: dance, music, visual arts, architecture, and technology: self-production of silk, gunpowder, paper and more. It was a long road full of beauty and danger.

Roaring Empyrean - To Earth's Heart

Record: 2011-2012 • Edition: 2013 • USC-WR-1301.0145
Symphonic Metal, Modern Classical, New Age

Wistful symphonies form the mood of anger and despair with a sense of greatness and hope. You feel like travelling to the imaginary and different spiritual things, hearing their voice, telling of mankind's faults throughout its existence. Beginning of the journey to first destination, Earth's miserable heart to seek it's words, and afterwards, continuation to the Fade - the next moral place of visitation in future.

Vermos - Сверхблизкий космос (Superclose Cosmos)

Record: 2013 • Edition: 2013 • USC-WR-1301.0141
Indietronica, Dubstep, EBM

The Superclose Cosmos is a dummy, handmade planetarium in a tiny room, naive simulation, just like special effects of the Soviet tapes about conquest of the Universe. Parade of the paper stars hanging on invisible threads, plates with names of constellations; blue-eyed girls in the flight suits dancing under control of feelers of an intergalactic octopus; the Siberian shamans singing of phosphoric stars on wallpaper; rhythms of engine rooms of "Pegasus" recreated by the drum machine; figurine of wise Buddha laughing over this space samsara.

Nymphomania - Unashamed

Record: 2012 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1212.0129
Ambient, Experimental

This is a real trip into mind. The fractal image of the inner self. A kaleidoscope of visions that have a meaning, but you should be sure, because taking the wrong path leads you nowhere. The labyrinth built by one's mind may look confusing, but it gives the hints - just listen. And never touch that green switch!

Record: 2012 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1210.0114

The culture of storytelling have survived through many centuries. Stories and tales told by unknown authors are passed through generations and refuse to leave. This is because of their lucid idea that is inside us. This is the timeless message of peace and harmony with nature that becomes a question of escalating importance with each leaving age. There were indigenous tribes and clans of different beliefs and customs living in every area, only taking the needed and making the most of every vital source. They believed that Universe was bound together by the spirits within nature: life, plants, animals, humans, water and even the Earth.

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.

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.
