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.

Numb Silence – «Excelsior!»

Numb Silence - «Excelsior!»Cat.# … DNA 71
Release Date … 20.12.2009
Genre … Drone Ambient
Type … FLAC Lossless

Russian ambient project Numb Silence makes its debut on DNA Production with short work called «Excelsior!».

The basis of this work is an extremely static and solid drone ambient. Inspired by «Excelsior!», a poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, title composition has fragments of melancholic melodies floating in gloom and suppressing drone. The second one, «Air Of Bright Nights» presses a listener with its dark atmosphere where even rare melodies help to create an enormous picture of deserted space somewhere between depressive wakefulness and instinctive escape from reality.

Artworks are made by Knell.

This release is a part of «Short Drones» series – «Short Drones Part VII».

Tracklisting:

  1. Numb Silence – Excelsior! (By H.W. Longfellow) (09:02)
  2. Numb Silence – Air Of Bright Nights (10:19)

Inner Struggle – «Justified Moments»

Release Date … 10.12.2009
Genre … Drone Ambient, Dark Ambient
Type … FLAC Lossless

Inner Struggle is back shortly after its debut work «Burning Down The Past» was released in November by DNA Production. New EP called «Justified Moments» is shorter but more expressive and emotional.

These four tracks balance on the edge between light and fluid ambient and tense drone ambient. While listening to it, you could sink in the waves of echoing ambient layers which roll over elements of urban field recordings.

  1. Inner Struggle – Night City Dreams (03:26)

Inner Struggle – «Burning Down The Past»

Inner Struggle - «Burning Down The Past»Cat.# … DNA 67
Release Date … 10.11.2009
Genre … Dark Ambient, Drone Ambient
Type … FLAC Lossless

Inner Struggle first solo work at DNA Production wins over listeners witn its completeness and polish. It’s like an ancient peat lake with dark waters. Rain and wind paint weird dark ambient traceries on the lake’s cold waves of heavy and hollow drones keeping its mysteries and fears under the surface of deceptively calm waters.

No matter where the lake are – in primitive forest, in forgotten glen or among ruins of abandoned industrial area. No matter how this music sounds like. It could have many names but it always has its own distinctive features: conceptual completeness, integrity and inner power.

Tracklisting:

  1. Inner Struggle – Derelict (03:46)
  2. Inner Struggle – Threatening Places (04:38)
  3. Inner Struggle – Wasteland (03:56)
  4. Inner Struggle – The Eternal Loneliness (06:18)
  5. Inner Struggle – The Mental Anguish (06:08)

Inner Struggle & I.M.M.U.R.E. – «Split»

Inner Struggle & I.M.M.U.R.E. - «Split»Cat.# … DNA 64
Release Date … 10.10.2009
Genre … Drone Ambient, Industrial
Type … FLAC Lossless

Two Russian ambient project from DNA Production catalogue unite in their collaborative effort to create this split release. Alexey Oleinikov as I.M.M.U.R.E. and Seclorum with his new project Inner Struggle, both of them contribute a track to the album.

Inner Struggle’s track called «Blackout» is full of dark and calm drone ambient with deep and evenly breathing devoid of peaks in sound.

And «Time To Pretend», I.M.M.U.R.E. contribution, has a great difference. Very nervous and disquiet, it’s similar to early I.M.M.U.R.E. works. Rough and angular composition made of tense ambient layers, looped noise fragments and cold synthetic melodies rise gradually and develop in almost 20-minute track.

Graphic design is by Seclorum.

Tracklisting:

  1. Inner Struggle – Blackout (10:19)
  2. I.M.M.U.R.E. – Time To Pretend (18:54)
