EugeneKha & Microbit Project – «Crossings»

EugeneKha & Microbit Project - «Crossings»Cat.# … DNA 187
Release Date … 27.12.2016
Genre … Dark Ambient, Drone Ambient
Type … FLAC

«Crossings» is more than a collage of unreleased and already released tracks and drafts created in 2005-2010 under EugeneKha and Microbit Project.

It’s an attempt to rethink and to organize last experiences in a combination of various (and maybe opposite) approaches. This combination converts to «Crossings», an audio reflection of real and surreal worlds, a new form, a new experience with a new sound.

Kolpakopf – «Escapism»

Kolpakopf - «Escapism»Cat.# … DNA 186
Release Date … 09.11.2016
Genre … Dark Ambient
Type … FLAC

Sullen Kolpakopf keeps pressing with his original dark, heavy and a bit claustrophobic ambient. Kolpakopf’s «Escapism» reveals not a final point for escapist but the process of reaching that point.

Saturnine soundscapes, catacombs pathways,illegible voices through hum and noises and unceasing mental stress. Black-and-white vision, walking on the edge, electric lights instead of sun and rare scrappy images of escapist relaxation at the peak of psychic burnout.

Recorded in 2016.

  1. Kolpakopf – I (11:48)
  2. Kolpakopf – II (15:40)
  3. Kolpakopf – III (13:42)

Xalm Retribution – «Orbiter»

Xalm Retribution - «Orbiter»Cat.# … DNA 184
Release Date … 01.09.2016
Genre … Dark Ambient
Type … FLAC

In his new work «Orbiter» Xalm Retribution adds some new colours to his usual dark ambient palette, and all these colours are cold, very cold. Staying inside classic dark ambient borders, Xalm Retribution managed to utilize some elements typical to work of Massimo Magrini and late Akifumi Nakajima.

Now technogenous, inanimate, artificial sounds fill his vibrant soundscapes. In the waves of slow low-frequency pulsations, you can no longer find any industrial noises or guitar drones or something else you are used to find in straight dark ambient works. There are only electrical circuits’ music, singing induction coils, oxidized pins’ staccatos and conducting switches in the finally abandoned Solaris station. Shadows run their fingers over strings of crackling electrical wiring. Faulty сlimatic plants’ din fills dark corridors. Obscurity and desolation…

Kolpakopf – «Indivisible Triplicity Of Death»

Kolpakopf - «Indivisible Triplicity Of Death»Cat.# … DNA 182
Release Date … 26.05.2016
Genre … Dark Ambient
Type … FLAC

It’s Kolpakopf again, and again his work touch on the subject of death. And again the work is inspired by literature, and again Kolpakopf get inspired by mystical Jorge Luis Borges.

In «Indivisible Triplicity Of Death» philosophical reflections about significance of death in the human perception metamorphose in chaotic waves of low-frequency noise swamping lifeless and deliberately minimalistic sound caverns. Arised there and sewn together in an anxious canvas, consonances, pieces of phrases and similar sets of anthropogenic sounds slowly emerge into a wall of noise and then disjoin at the peak of their intensity. Later they appear again in another form to arise and to fall eventually.

It looks like those changes in situations and in points of view in Jorge Luis Borges’ stories wherein half-words and allusions spawn layers of implication and force to overinterpret probable development of the action. And doubtless it force to continue author’s fantasies in someone’s own way. As Borges’ stories, Kolpakopf’s «Indivisible Triplicity Of Death» offers a few of detailed patterns and provoke to interpret them before the piece develops enough to show author’s original idea.

Recorded in 2015.
