Raspad Atoma – «Melophobia»

Raspad Atoma - «Melophobia»Cat.# … DNA 46
Release Date … 22.04.2009
Genre … Drone Ambient, Field Recordings
Type … FLAC Lossless

«…chaotic drone and rumble of the external raving world is only volume of absolute silence increased a thousand times…»

Powerful low frequency drone, considered chaos of ambient layers, slow composition progress and permanent tension – Raspad Atoma is back.

This Russian drone musician attracts attention with his new work. Being an adherent of deep low frequency drone ambient, Knell discovers new (or another?) ways to develop his creativity. He uses an advanced multilayer composition, intensively works with various sounds, noises, drones and field recordings.

«Melophobia» is a long ambient piece. It’s an instrument that helps author to disjoin listener’s consciousness and the world around. It’s an imperceptible but persistent process when hundreds of spirals wrap listener around and every spiral is full of caught drones, melodies, noises. It pulses, sounds and interweaves creating new world around. «Melophobia» looks like deepest sleep when habitual frame of reference is lost and consciousness is trying to realize discovered space as a dark and isolated place, a territory of loneliness.

Created at home studio summer 2008 – winter 2009 specially for DNA Production.
All sounds, noises, drones, field recordings, programming and mastering, artworks by Knell.

Tracklisting:

  1. Raspad Atoma – Melophobia (48:42)
