Tenth Cloud - Edge of Summer

Record: 2016-2018 • Edition: 2018 • USC-WR-1804.0406
Techno, Chillout, Traditional Electronic

It always ends. It always ends the same. Sometimes a couple of days earlier, sometimes a couple of days later, but always with rains and cold winds. I understand I have lived this little life and hungrily swallow these remains of happiness. I am siting here – on the very edge, on the edge of summer and dream of one thing only: to quickly start it over once again. Once again – from the beginning. And what then? And then it will be like it always is. Like always, I will be waiting for summer!

Sergey Kolesnikov - Signature

Record: 2010-2011 • Edition: 2018 • USC-WR-1506.0268
Berlin School, Ambient

Epochs shift epochs. New structures are formed under the tips of the fingers. The stream of thoughts flows freely, and ideas are born as if by themselves. You create worlds with one pass of a hand, before which you prostrate yourself subsequently. And then a stunning music breaks out from under your rough hands, over which you have no power. It rushes to where time and space merge into a single whole. Its motif, changing imperceptibly, carries you into the ocean of sound. The steps of the sequences alternate, responding to the aspirations of the soul of an invisible genius nurtured by the experience of generations. And in all this – the integrity of a majestic music! Perhaps this is how happiness sings, and delight fills the cup of appeasement? What can be more beautiful than the contemplation of how the creator creates his creation, and creation creates its creator? No thoughts, no words... There is only a dissolution of consciousness in the music, on which the time itself left its imprint.

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.

Marcus Denight - Legends of the Imminent Winter

Record: 2016 • Edition: 2018 • USC-WR-1802.0403
Traditional Electronic, New Age

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...

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!

Marcus Denight - Between Light of the Sun and Gray Moon

Record: 2017 • Edition: 2017 • USC-WR-1710.0383
Space Ambient, New Age, Electro

The Moon and the Sun. The Sun and The Moon. Two luminaries. Two hearts. Two legends originating from the birth of the Universe. They are the ones that jealous stars whisper about, looking around fearfully in the night sky. Silent witnesses of our life journeys, the Sun and the Moon! Countless myths and legends are written about them. In the moments of mysterious eclipses frightening with their unpredictability people stared at the sky with sacred awe and raised their arms as if they tried to implore forgiveness of heaven. The Moon and the Sun. You bestowed light and warmth to our far ancestors. Centuries will pass, whole millennia will sink into oblivion, but still you will look at our descendants. Bless them! Be merciful to them!.. Having left earth, the hopes of days Still keep their beauty evergreen. The heights of feelings lost in silence Sometimes awake those memories. How far divided we are now By endless roads of destiny And by remembrance of the lightest years Between the light of the Sun and the gray Moon. There still remains a hidden corner, Where at the sunset of the brightest lines A unique land has got its shape.

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!»

Ether - Road to the Sky

Record: 2014 • Edition: 2014 • USC-WR-1411.0235
Traditional Electronic, Psy-Ambient

This is the story about a quest for a way to the beautiful and the eternal. If there is nothing left untouched by progress of civilization on Earth, where should we look for them else, but in the skies? A man imprisoned in urban constructions sees nothing besides asphalt and concrete, while there is a shoreless ocean above his head. Distant and captivating, it is calling into its boundless vasts, winking with countless stars. We are ready to dive into it, but we are way too weak to break free from the ties of gravity of our planet. Nevertheless, despite of all, we are going on dreaming. Looking upwards we give birth to a hope.

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.

Traditional Electronic, Berlin School, New Age

Sometimes long-awaited events are used to being postponed till better times or cancelled at all. Some of them are to happen and some of them are not, as if it was designed in some mysterious plan. Nevertheless, this doesn't detract their importance. Let inspiration become an engine, let fire light up in your eyes. Feel excitement in your heart - overcome gravity of workaday routine, throw off ties of commonness. Personal discoveries allow to take a new look on surrounding reality, but also they give new experiences - herefrom the new vision takes its rise. To lift up above the ground in the own first flight to see the essence of things at least once - then the world in your eyes will change.

Oleg Pavlov - In Twilight of Thoughts

Record: 1999-2000 • Edition: 2014 • USC-WR-1409.0221
Traditional Electronic, New Age

Autumn appears with an amber scatter of leaves on the roadside. Fading horizon is illuminated by sappy colors of the setting sun over the sleepy town, and then the invisible hand switches on the headlights on a black roadbed. The night approaches, and the remains of light fade in the sky: a perfect end to a day and time for reflections. Dormant imagination stretches wings in this world of imaginings, and magic begins... It is said that dusk - a crack between the worlds. What is the human nature: perfect love, absolute evil or an intricate maze in the shadows of which you can wander endlessly? All this is quite different from the ordinary experiences in the flow of the daily vanity, isn't it? The dark hour of fantasy has come!

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.

SiJ - Shadow of Time

Record: 2011-2012 • Edition: 2014 • USC-WR-1403.0204
Ambient, Space

If you glance at the familiar world through a veil of shadow, then the things may take a strange and sinister look. The shadow side always carries something, at first sight, odd, frightening, but if you take deeper into the essence, you can see the extraordinary beauty, which is usually obscured by the bright light of the day. That's the beauty of unusual forms, which are born by hiding redundant lines and curves. That's the beauty of subdued images, which themselves look plain. That's the beauty of movement, which creates the illusion of life. A whole world created by the shadow that is irresistibly impending onto the fragile reality.

Vortex Mechanic - Etherwind

Record: 2013-2014 • Edition: 2014 • USC-WR-1402.0203
Traditional Electronic, Berlin School, Psy-Ambient

The long road of learning is strewn with obstacles and provides many enticing detours that seem quite reliable, however, eventually lead to a dead end. Sometimes you have to stop and return to what once was unfairly rejected. And here we are again where we started, therefore we have to blaze a new path... We must gain the courage to recognize that many modern concepts - err, and to pull out of the dark closet forbidden knowledge. We must cease inventing the false postulates and deduce from them theories intractable for the mind. We must sweep aside the abstractness of thinking and realize that lack of understanding of the essence of things - not our inability to interpret them, but merely the wrong approach. It is time to open your mind and accept - Ether!

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.

We are surrounded by a diverse and dynamic world. Something happens and changes every second in it. The set tempo is incredible for a single person. Our schedule of existence turns into an endless series of programmed actions, and we get tired or even break. But sometimes we put the game on pause in time and leave the controls to find peace and quiet. Interval when all the unnecessary and distracting dims and goes into the background, and vice versa all the important finds brightness and stands out among the noisy bustle. Moment of unity with the genuine things in the world and this life.
