Meteora - The Northern Path

Record: 2009-2017 • Edition: 2017 • USC-WR-1712.0388
Traditional Electronic

For all times the Far North in the eyes of common men appeared as an inhospitable wilderness with an extreme climate. Due to severe weather even nowadays many people consider polar regions as the edge of the world. Only the bravest and desperate explorers – pilots and sailors, voyagers and scientists – dare to challenge merciless nature and pave the northern path risking their lives. Polar nights that last for half a year, insidious embrace of whiteout, fantastic Aurora Borealis and orange glare of sunrise above the horizon... And only a few research stations remain frail islands of life among silent icy kingdom as outposts of human curiosity and devotion. Wonderful people serve in places like this: solitude doesn't frighten them, as they feel encouragement of their friends and families behind their back and with spiritual power they expand the conquered area.

Innerspace - Аквалактика (Aqualactica)

Record: 1998-2000 • Edition: 2014 • USC-WR-1411.0232
Traditional Electronic, Spacesynth

All we are mad about space, majestic and cold... But there is another one - it is closer and... deeper. We all came namely from there, about one and a half billion years ago. All we had gills at the age of seven weeks, the embryo dwells in liquid medium during nine months - instincts are inherent from birth. Maybe that's the reason why ocean depths beckon us so much, and it is so painful to try to enter this enigmatic abyss without preparation. Pressure, nitrogen bubbles, boiling in blood, tragic experience of the great number of dead explorers of this mysterious world, and at the same time indescribable feeling of flight, weightlessness and complete detachment from the bustle of our life, impetuous bodies of underwater inhabitants, wonderful "sea nation" - dolphins possessing a very high level of intelligence, infinite variety of the dwellers of the largest buildings on our Earth - the Great Barrier Reef. Aqualactica is a musical dedication to beauty and mystery of the underwater space.

Nickolay Fedorenko - Eco

Record: 2013-2014 • Edition: 2014 • USC-WR-1410.0229
Spacesynth, Electroclash

We live in a time of new technologies and reach to outer space. But we sometimes forget the nature of our home. Our cradle - Earth. The humankind shall pause to think of how to preserve it or even make it a better place. Eco is a future world where man, technology, and nature coexist in harmony. A world free from ecological catastrophes and reckless use of valuable resources. A world where intelligence rules for the good of all.

Innerspace - Люди как боги (Humans as Gods)

Record: 1994-1996 • Edition: 2014 • USC-WR-1410.0228
Traditional Electronic, Spacesynth

"I have... seen things you people wouldn't believe... Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those... moments... will be lost in time, like... tears... in... rain..." - Roy Batty, "Blade Runner". Worlds, fantastic worlds, created by dreamers, inspire, wake the fantasy and make one express emotions through paintings, music and so on. And it doesn't matter that he has no music education and never learned to paint. It matters, that in the evening after work one can immerse himself into a fantastic world, where armadas of spaceships assault barriers of the non-Euclidean space, war robots deploy to order, and cutting-edge laboratories fathom secrets of the human brain... This is the way this music appears - very simple and very naive, but it is just the beginning!

Mabi - Möbius Strip

Record: 2012-2013 • Edition: 2013 • USC-WR-1312.0198
Instrumental Synthpop, EBM

A confined path filled with astonishing paradoxes that occur on your way forward. A race on the wide band of road, while environment becomes even more strange in the course of time. Robotic structures made from basic blocks are progressing, build each other like a giant meccano producing tens of ready mechanisms every minute. This is an electronic nightmare in which one may get caught. An endless maze-world from which there is no escape. Would it wish to let you go?

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.

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.

Mornastra - Birth of a Supernova

Record: 2012-2013 • Edition: 2013 • USC-WR-1311.0184
Traditional Electronic, Spacesynth

Like the birth of a supernova illuminates the cold expanse of space, so these bright compositions are similar to rays of light and energy. These images of the future will not leave indifferent anyone, who loves science fiction, and who is willing to indulge in nostalgia for the golden era of melodic electronic music, unprecedented progress in space exploration, when the science was considered as fascinating and honorable occupation. Immerse yourself into the world of wonderful achievements, into the world built by man, which is rapidly comprehends the mysteries of the foundation and finds harmony with the universe.

WMRI - Tenth Anniversary

Record: 2003-2013 • Edition: 2013 • USC-WR-1309.0175
Traditional Electronic, Berlin School

Traditional electronic music - a genre that will never be popular. It is too romantic and not the story of the household chores, too tactful and do not impose itself on the listener. There are always a bit of composers who are ready to give up their claims to the easily achievable popularity in the name of intelligent romance - it's usually home musicians who work for the pleasure, if not into the desk drawer - and in our time in Russia there are only a few of them. This year, one of those few projects - WMRI - celebrates its 10th anniversary.

Industrial, Post-Punk

Mixed album of nocturnal forest psychedelic music, inspired by psytrance, techno, broken beat and beyond. Vocals in a few of the tracks gives a very deep and layered experience. Uptempo set of narrative forest dance music that was created over the year span. Spirals of shadowy textures create multifaceted subliminal language. Occasionally appearing vocals sound with a questioning, philosophical tone. Many of these tracks were created under the influence of drugs.
