Astrovia & Derek Nigell - World of Specular Loomings

Record: 2018 • Edition: 2018 • USC-WR-1808.0410
Berlin School, Ambient

Imagine yourself an entity of light... You are born in the radiant worlds and get into the place most attractive for you – the realm of glass, crystal and mirrors... The real game of optical illusions begins. Refraction, bundle into many colors and scattering on thin and sharp edges. You are so fascinated... You turn into myriads of self copies, shine and spray in all directions with sunbeams. Looking at your own reflections, you find strange memories in the depths of your bright memory: you flew for a long time across the boundless space, skirted the galaxies and played a ghost penumbra under the tree crowns on the unknown planets. Or it was not you, but your brothers bearing the light, with whom you are inseparable, like the light is inseparable and complete in the Universe... Or maybe it all just seemed to you in this strange world – in a world of specular loomings...

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.

«I love this place. Here, there is a unique atmosphere at any season. On that chilly summer evening when I came here with my friend Alexey, the air was especially thick and filled with bittersweet wettish freshness. Here, you fall into a special state, sitting on the recently scythed grass and looking down from the hill at power lines stretching away. It is here where several little worlds come together: a forest to the left and the right, a tiny village living its hasteless life under the hill, and the slight noise of a bustling city coming from far behind. And above, the steel giants of power line towers soaring against the darkening summer sky, which soon will be cut across by the Perseids. It is here where you take a rest from the hustle, and music itself fills your mind to later find its material form.»

«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!»
