Vortex Mechanic - Wired

Record: 2017 • Edition: 2017 • USC-WR-1709.0376
Berlin School, Ambient

«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!»

Eleomys - Commencement

Record: 2013-2014 • Edition: 2014 • USC-WR-1409.0216
Ambient, Cinematic

...just an essence, lost in gloom, among weird machinery and eternal frost. They are peculiar essences as well - iron giants, into whom life was breathed to make them... Could it be a kind of utopia? A perverted dream of ruined mind which seeks for solitude or unity with emptiness, if you wish. The value of silence is learnt when noise overflows everything around and breaks in thoughts. All these bawling dolls are unable to... ...shall begin, for a moment must necessarily come when all should be brought into primordial state - to the initial, to be reset to default. It will be a brand new start. And meanwhile the chance to dissolve in silence must be used all the way - to become saturated with it, until noise gets to...

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.

Radio Silence - Frosts

Record: 2009-2011 • Edition: 2013 • USC-WR-1312.0191
Traditional Electronic, Ambient, New Age

When frosts come, life hides in warm corners, covering from the harsh weather. Powerful storm whirls in a fast paced dance and veils the land with a fluffy white blanket. Frost draws intricate traceries on the windows. At nightfall, snowy vasts begin to sparkle under mysterious flickering starlight. The air is filled with thrilling anticipation of the holiday, and the magic of the New Year story from childhood dreams knocks at your house.

Ralax - A Place That is Always There

Record: 2012-2013 • Edition: 2013 • USC-WR-1311.0186
Industrial, IDM, Darkwave

This album is dedicated to any human consciousness being in entirely different locations. Associative series, sensual connections, imaginative flow - it all takes place. But these things are only a conception. Musical shell presented by a personal experiences of different places, memories and events. The only thing remains unchanged (i.e. the formula): "I'm always here". This "I" do not depend on anything and from anyone. Let it be a place that appears and shows all around... like an intangible inner jewel.

SiJ & WMRI - Nightwave

Record: 2012-2013 • Edition: 2013 • USC-WR-1310.0178
Ambient, Symphonic

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. Hold on this stream and save mind or turn into a gray shadow, hiding in the alleys of time - what is waiting for us?

Евгений Науменко - 1000 лет (Eugene Naumenko - 1000 Years)

Record: 2013 • Edition: 2013 • USC-WR-1308.0167
Modern Classical, Traditional Electronic

A voyage of the human into space, where he experiences a range of emotions during the journey. He admires the view of Earth after take-off, he is being seized by despair, he dreams of home, and he is glad to come back. 1000 Years is a kind of metaphor, that represents expectation, patience and difficulties on a way to the goal, which seem, at times, to be endless.

Secret Keys - In the City of Clouds

Record: 2009 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1202.0016
Modern Classical, Ambient

Sparkling minimalism of keys tells for itself and paints amusing pictures. They are made in two moods: light as an airy marshmallow or chilly wind and gloomy as evil thoughts or sudden storm clouds. The light part flashes in positive cheer and sustains the calm and monotonous atmosphere. When the darker side bursts the change in a perception is evident. The music can sound loud and solemn in an empty room, as an enigmatic ritual, dismal in times it forces you glance around for a moment. It is great soundtrack for a day with pressure drops, unsettled weather and mood swings. But this fragile obsession may over if you just pull the plug falling out into the reality
