WMRI - Red

Record: 2008 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1204.0041

The first EP in Black Concept Series of six and first at all. Not dark, but not an easy thing also. A little experiment in vast ambient field. Red can be associated with the sense of surrounding warmth or with wide martian landscapes. It can seem to be monotonous at the first sight but in fact it is very deep and as beautiful as sceneries of far away planets.

The ultimate meditation place offers you an ambiance filled with layered sounds that thread each other and create the complex flow. Absolute calmness is the key parameter here. Created in an ultra slow mode it allows you deeply feel and understand every color in surrounding sonic stream. The time stops here and falls asleep and you being like in a freeze frame heed with a heightened sensibility. Gaining time helps receiving the prolonged moment for perfect immersion enhancing an overall effect.

WMRI - Shelter

Record: 2008 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1203.0032
Dark Ambient, Industrial

The album dark as the night. It is separated into two parts. First part consists of four drifting and droning tracks fading each other. Second part consists of a long complex track and shorter track that's actually a Shelter main theme. While first part is mostly based around deep low drones, surrounding sounds and minimal, except a noisy drone piece in the end, the second part is based on industrial echoes, longer piece starts with some even melodic theme and moves towards to the emotionless drift with minor drone beats and for the second section the far bell sounds appear. Shelter theme is a separate topic for discussion as it's a complete scene of factory interior: hammer-like drone beats and noise splashes give the unique feeling of a safe and dangerous place at once. The idea of noise splashes was later used once again in Wires.

WMRI - Floating Water

Record: 2007 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1203.0028
Traditional Electronic, Berlin School

The story of planetary water told by authentic Berlin School music. The mighty ocean is spread by its waters all over the world. It is entire in its tranquility and wisdom. Ocean uses its creative forces saturating the soil with clean rains, filling the clouds with water vapour and maintaining the vivid colourful life of the planet. This is a monumental work that tries to catch a piece of its immense meaning and value.

WMRI - Desert Dreams

Record: 2007 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1202.0024
Traditional Electronic, Berlin School

Desert life is not as monotonous as it may seem to be at first sight. If you look narrowly at it you can notice a lot of details. The first impression is vast yellow ocean of sand. The wind twists whirls above it and, as a great architect, constantly builds dunes and barkhans. And he does not like when strangers enter his landscapes, and summons sandstorm, hiding their tracks and sweeping away everything from his domains. Salvation can only be in oasis - a small island of life. However, sometimes the desert seems to stand, and only a thin strip of horizon divides the yellow ocean and the azure sky. And when night falls, darkness veils the desert, and only bright light of the stars in the cloudless sky is pulling away from oblivion.

sokbp avabodha & WMRI - Music for Fields

Record: 2010 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1202.0021
Drone Ambient, New Age

The long epic recording made by two ambient composers. Soundscape music of vast space. Minimalistic drone sketches, which become more complex during the flow of music. Immovable and homogeneous field is what should be imagined to these sounds of contemplation. Absolutely calmness and a uniform current of time. Only an infinite field - same in any day.

WMRI - Life in a World

Record: 2007 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1202.0018
Traditional Electronic, New Age

This story begins with a main theme of life - Time! It flows on and on, and never stops. It goes on every second, but hey - there were a lot of great moments that we can remember. Time Flux shows you the puzzle of event pieces that compose every life. Fast and slow, serene and rush - all these moments have the great value. Only when you understand this you can build your identity and revel the balanced existence. Opening your mind allows to become aware of hidden senses inside you. Uncovering concealed resources within you get the skill to discover new ways and possibilities in the world of present.

WMRI - Deep Forest

Record: 2006 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1201.0014
Traditional Electronic

This unique release is built around main title track Deep Forest, which is actually a pre-WMRI track made by other member Alex Ilin. It was covered with dust for 3 years after recording and first issued only in 2006. It later remained in shadow of more popular Voices of Space and didn't get proper spread. Now it's a really precious gem with ageing more than eight years, but still sounding fresh and impressive. To be more alluring it is supported by other tracks of Alex recorded jointly with Mike Winchester. This is absolutely different look at WMRI music.

Record: 2010 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1201.0010

This release is made for a special date on calendar - 10.10.10. It's not connected to any actual events in the world, but rather considered as thoughts about the ages passed. This was made as a trial to make a track in just some days. Eight composers accepted the challenge and made their tributes for the release. Musician expressed their ideas in a form that's common to them. This is our celebration of Time!

WMRI - Dark Passage

Record: 2009 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1201.0006
Dark Ambient, Experimental

Imagine a dark corridor. Have you? It could have lamps of course, but the light doesn't even reach the floor, it's covered with darkness. Do you fear this situation? And if does the exit disappear at once, like it never existed? Corridor is prolonging both sides, its length - infinity. The darkness gorges the remainder of dimmed light until only the dark corridor is left. And hey, what's the rustling up there?

This box collects all of the earlier full-length releases of WMRI, some of which are published for first time on the web. Moreover, all included materials are original masters as they were first meant to be, even the original track titles were saved. These versions aren't considered authentic, but either historic or relic. The reference versions are four of these albums that were remastered and expanded in 2008 and released under the title First Wave. All these materials are going to be remastered soon or late, but for now this fills the holes in your WMRI collection.
