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.

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.

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!

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.

The will of photographer who has imprinted moments of life creates a kaleidoscope of the past. Opening a photo album, you get captured by the whirl of remembrances. Pictures of long time gone days become alive in front of your eyes, unfamiliar people and places are alluring into their tiny worlds. Some of snapshots are quite fuzzy and contain only common details giving freedom to fantasy, others stun with depth and emotional fullness. But this mosaic is far from being intact, therefore it keeps mysteries, covered with dust of time.

Space

In the wake of tramp-Voyager, on the narrow pathway of stardust, upon the steps of brave explorer and pioneer we rush into depths of other spaces. Charming by its majesty, expanse widens in front of us: the ocean of silence and calm, eternity of countless light years of flight. Stars - rare violators of the gravitational quiet - flash sometimes on observation screen, separated by days and months of traveling. Infinity swirls by nebulae and currents of radiation hides in time folds, appears sometimes among the people and disappears immediately. Wondering about nature of temporal matters, we realize suddenly that we are sowing Eternity here and now, right from the board of spaceship, time and again rushing after the shadow of fellow Voyager 2 into depths of the unknown, twinkling mysteriously straight ahead, stunningly near and inconceivably far.

It was a long road full of beauty and danger.

Walking slowly at the evening in the levees, squares and parks, route your way through shady alleys lighted by the calid lamps. Passing pleasant restaurants, cafes, clubs and boring bars, cross the river by the bridge floating over like the ridge, shoot a glance at river's flowing in the city's twilight glowing. Someone's waiting at the soiree... This is me - no need to worry, but you better run. Well, that's really fun!
