Sky in Birds - Sky in Birds

Record: 2014 • Edition: 2014 • USC-WR-1408.0213
Indietronica, Lounge, Ambient, Minimal

Birds fly high in the sky and look at the swarming life on earth. Their flight begins in the wintertime, and they move towards the South, overcoming enormous distances. They see quaint landscapes and lofty mountains, tumultuous rivers and their cliffy banks, lowlands and highlands. Just a bird's regular day of a free floating in the lucid heights that is perceived as a borderless travel in an incredible calmness with the serene feeling of the clear blue firmament.

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.

Traditional Electronic, Berlin School, Space Ambient

Look around - and you will see the endless majesty of cosmos, a myriad of stars, whose light goes hundreds, thousands, millions and billions years. What keeps us from reaching them? Damned relativity! But there is a way to overcome it! In the beginning there were only thoughts, concepts. Alcubierre drive, Krasnikov tube. There only one challenge remains: generation of matter with negative density of energy - and forward, to the stars! There, where new life, new intelligence, new destination await! So far, these are only dreams... It is necessary to develop a theory. It is necessary to fund the experiments. Begin constructing devices unseen ever before. All this is for the flight to a distant planet. And lo, a massive complex is being built gradually. A spaceship with a strange structure is being designed. Finally everything's ready! Starship is ready for the first leap. Distance ahead, unexplored before, in some three light years (come to think of it that we may already say: "some three light years"!). Attention! Start! The leap is performed flawlessly. After a few weeks ship comes back with detailed snapshots of the nearest star - Proxima Centauri. This event is celebrated all over the globe. A hope is born, that there will be no need to slice and torture the planet tired of mankind. Finally there'll be enough place for everybody - after all the Universe has no boundaries.

People are emotional creatures. Everything they create is filled with emotions. They fill things with sense and make them important. Music is one of their ways to describe the Universe. Just a way to place oneself into the main point to see the whole. Every little nuance can be of vital importance. Open your mind to the world, plunge into its beauty and then come up to the surface renewed from inside. Take the opportunity to feel once felt and see once seen that is expressed in this music.

Nickolay Fedorenko - Dance Planet

Record: 2012-2013 • Edition: 2014 • USC-WR-1405.0207
Traditional Electronic, Trance

Look into the sky and you will see the austere motion of spherical bodies as if they perform the perfect space dance. Planets, moving along orbits, experience a lot of effects: the changing of seasons, solar storms, space radiation, however they don't reduce the tempo for a moment. Comets and asteroids attempt to break the lasting balance at times, but, even if they exert a shattering impact to the surface, they rarely can affect the rotating velocity of graceful dancers. They aim to continue the dance endlessly.

Rigel Centaurus - Центр галактики (Galactic Center)

Record: 2013 • Edition: 2014 • USC-WR-1405-0206

Galactic center is relatively small - about 1000 parsecs. Hidden behind the clouds of gas and dust, it is a real stellar nursery. The formation of galaxy began here. Around the giant space monster - a supermassive black hole located in the heart of the galaxy, stellar population is most plentiful. If the stars in the center of the galaxy have civilizations, they may be billions of years older than humanity. During this time they could have reached a level of development that comparing to us they are like gods, which as a wise guardians of the order watching the fragile mechanism of galaxy, skillfully adjust and fix it, keeping the balance of power in space.

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.

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.
