Ajna & Dronny Darko – «Misconceived Origins»

Ajna & Dronny Darko - «Misconceived Origins»Cat.# … DNA 160
Release Date … 29.07.2014
Genre … Dark Ambient
Type … FLAC Lossless

«There is no coming to consciousness without pain. People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own Soul. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.»
Carl Jung

Dark ambient can be ominous at the moment and slumberous a second later. It changes elusively in a single track, tracks form changeable atmosphere which keeps listeners waiting for another turn.

Two men, Ajna and Dronny Darko rework their selected tracks in this way and bring to the spotlight the best features of the projects: post-industrial mechanistic soundscapes, droning waves, obscure atmosphere and viscous transparent layers including sounds of various nature and demeanour.

Tracklisting:

  1. Ajna – Hour Of The Wolf (Remixed by Dronny Darko) (13:00)
  2. Dronny Darko – Imponderable Light (Reworked by Ajna. Part 2) (11:11)
  3. Ajna – The Strange Demeanor Of Solitude II (Remixed by Dronny Darko) (12:02)
  4. Dronny Darko – Imponderable Light (Reworked by Ajna. Part 1) (09:45)

Kolpakopf – «And Death Shall Have No Dominion»

Genre … Dark Ambient
Type … FLAC Lossless

«And death shall have no dominion», Dylan Thomas said. Snatches of indistinct tunes, that humming in the head when bitter words are said and heard, and despair comes in stead of anxiety… Kolpakopf was there with his wordless hymn to fallen and reborn. In pains of loss he fell and then arose, another man. Some scars are left deep in the heart but who cares. When cries are over, just stand up! You, man who shall never be the same henceforth.

«Faith in their hands shall snap in two, And the unicorn evils run them through; Split all ends up they shan’t crack», that Welshman said. In clinking hum Kolpakopf answers: «And death shall have no dominion». Stop crying, live your life until you’re alive, a man with bleeding heart. Pain will be soothed, scars will be healed when doomed one passes away. Now you know that death shall have no dominion.

Tracklisting:

  1. Kolpakopf – Untitled (25:00)

«…We had “strayed”, as the Swede put it, into some region or some set of conditions where the risks were great, yet unintelligible to us; where the frontiers of some unknown world lay close about us. It was a spot held by the dwellers in some outer space, a sort of peep-hole whence they could spy upon the earth, themselves unseen, a point where the veil between had worn a little thin…»

This quotation from «The Willows», a story by Algernon Blackwood, is a better description for the atmosphere created by this work. «Ниже нуля (Lower Than Zero)» consists of minimalistic isolationist soundscapes which split up into myriads of noises of uncertain nature. Weird, cold, incomprehensible – it’s something beyond human perception.

Tracklisting:

These three tracks present a journey through structures and layers contained in sound envelope of drone and ambient. Find there sound anomalies, unsystematic wanderings in shaky unpredictable areas, vague rustles and seeming echoes, spaces of various density, mood and nature, secret dead ends, spontaneous sound making and labyrinths closed in themselves.
