Fear Konstruktor – «The Sound Of Snow»

Cat.# … DNA 82
Release Date … 30.03.2010
Genre … Dark Ambient, Noise, Industrial
Type … FLAC Lossless

Fear Konstruktor was one of few artists who participated in .NBK Records activities. Certainly it’s a reason to be very interested in Fear Konstruktor materials but there is no need to make advances for this project. «The Sound Of Snow» appears as mature work showing a way of development chosen by the project.

Heavy dark ambient layers torn by dense abrasive noises, half suppressed feedbacks, atmosphere of sound pressure – all five tracks propose its own balance between extremely heavy ambient and hypnotic noise.

There are no aggression or power electronic provocations here but obviously the best term to describe this work is heavy electronics.

Cezary Gapik – «The Limestone EP»

Cat.# … DNA 77
Release Date … 10.02.2010
Genre … Drone Ambient, Dark Ambient
Type … FLAC Lossless

DNA Production continues collaboration with Polish musician Cezary Gapik. This time we presents his new work, the footage from few months before which was published on extremely limited mini-CDR for friends only.

The album is composed in drone/dark ambient way. It slightly differs from the Cezary Gapik’s first work released at DNA Production which was full of minimalism and isolationism.

«The Limestone EP» is the short and bright experiment with cold clear ambient and vast soundscapes. It looks like a bit lifeless and creates an atmosphere of isolationism.

Analog synthesizer, field recordings & computer manipulating sound by Cezary Gapik.

Epsilon Eridani – «Lamentos Lejanos»

Cat.# … DNA 74
Release Date … 10.01.2010
Genre … Dark Ambient
Type … FLAC Lossless

«Lamentos Lejanos» is the Epsilon Eridani second full-length album created for DNA Production. In contrast to debut work, new one is fully consist of fresh tracks.

This release discovers new elements in project creativity. It has less standart dark ambient and more new age and light ambient features which become a counterbalance to massive noise structures pulsing on background and creating sound pressure. And there is the culmination of the pressure when noise loops come to end interrupted by clear and extremely cold ambient in «Immer Schnee In Silenzio». This track is absolute winner, it wins over with its expressive vocal samples and atmosphere of tragedy and stoicism.

Inspired by music of Sofia Gubaidulina, «Immer Schnee In Silenzio» slightly differs from other tracks in musical and emotional sides. After this impressive peak album goes to coda, a long bunch of two dark claustrophobic tracks which are full of voice samples and chorales wandering in dark closed spaces, stumbling on walls of noise interferences…

Artworks are by Epsilon Eridani.

Tracklisting:

  1. Epsilon Eridani – Lamentos Lejanos (06:31)
  2. Epsilon Eridani – Great Hall (06:00)
  3. Epsilon Eridani – Falling Asleep (04:50)
  4. Epsilon Eridani – Unknown Message Received From A Distant Universe (06:40)
  5. Epsilon Eridani – Immer Schnee In Silenzio (04:25)
  6. Epsilon Eridani – Exil Von Kurt Weill Nach Paris (05:40)
  7. Epsilon Eridani – Waking Up In A Cave (04:48)
