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.

Vortex Mechanic - Forecasting the Future

Record: 2013-2014 • Edition: 2014 • USC-WR-1409.0220
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?

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.

Vortex Mechanic - At the Edge of Solar System

Record: 2014 • Edition: 2014 • USC-WR-1404.0205
Traditional Electronic, Psy-Ambient, Space

Solar system is a giant cosmic city. The planets, warmed with heat near the Sun, chase each other, while on the edge of the Solar system, where cold reigns, frozen worlds live their mysterious life in unhurried motion. Here, on the boundary, the Sun is so far, that it can hardly be found among billions of alien stars in the sky. Anxious darkness enchants, and so near extrasolar space is beckoning. And still we are under protection of the gravity of our star. One little step is enough to leave our home. And there... And there are scaring infinity and emptiness full of dangers there. Let's stay here, on the very frontier, and enjoy mysteriousness and majesty of the borderline of presence of our Sun.

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.

Dmitriy Samoylenko - The Life We Dance

Record: 2011-2013 • Edition: 2013 • USC-WR-1312.0197
Smooth Jazz, New Age

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.

Visionary Worlds - Dedicated to Ambient

Record: 2010-2011 • Edition: 2013 • USC-WR-1312.0192
Drone Ambient, Psy-Ambient

Autumn and winter. These periods motivate the human to summarize, to revise his convictions and gathered experience. Nature at this time facilitates immersion in thoughts about those aspects of life that do not lie on the surface, but paint the background daily. In the beginning, there's gloomy autumnal mood: cold, moisture and the leaden sky. Next, trance hypnotic vision of snowstorm that wraps all around, the observer and his consciousness with impenetrable veil of peace and quiet, leaving alone with depth. Then reality becomes thinner, and infinity peeps through it.

Record: 2013 • Edition: 2013 • USC-WR-1309.0173
Post-Rock, Indietronica

"These tricky stars constantly escape!" - Oven thought. She has been adjusting her butterfly net - it wounded tightly onto the ring and tangled, - and preparing for a new stroke. And here they are approaching again. "Whew!" - the net whistled, rounding arc. Miss... Somehow, Oven was believed that catching and swallowing the star of the Pleiades could gain her the soul. She really wanted to, because she was an ordinary robot-cook, though with an amazing zest for life and learning. "Maybe another time..." - Oven was thinking, going home in the dim light of the Moon.

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.
