Tremendous soundscapes hide between folds of subconsciousness. See through closed eyes in the dark vast depths. Do you wonder whose slack breathing you hear?

Knocks, cracklings, noises. Vibrations, pulses, sound scraps. Find yourself locked in small dark room with something strange stirring behind the door and a second later, soar over clouds of low-frequency drones endeavouring to discern what does lay beneath. And what the first word appeared in your mind on the edge of awakening?

berdetovka, one word for three prolonged dreams’ soundtracks. Put your headphones on and wander the track of your fantasy.

Paul Minesweeper – «Kingdom Of Grey»

Paul Minesweeper - «Kingdom Of Grey»Cat.# … DNA 176
Release Date … 21.07.2015
Genre … Drone Ambient
Type … FLAC Lossless

In his «Kingdom Of Grey» Paul dedicates its stream to Saint-Petersburg and life in its general sense – both are monochrome – white and black events, from time to time.

Solid and soft drone collaborates with low-frequency self-consistent foundation, which is very close to common music in its origin.

Without focusing on events, it stays endlessly grey – pure balance of happiness and sufferings. But at the same time any person can find something private in this stream.

There’s no place for deep meaning and the whole work is done for listeners, their reflective minds and exploration by themselves.

Tracklisting:

  1. Paul Minesweeper – The Sands Of Time (05:32)
  2. Paul Minesweeper – Sky Train (Magenta Fields Pt.II) (09:57)
  3. Paul Minesweeper – Winter Takes It All (06:35)
  4. Paul Minesweeper – Kingdom Of Grey (09:13)
  5. Paul Minesweeper – White Night (09:24)
  6. Paul Minesweeper and Astral & Shit – State Of Grey Dust (11:58)

Grove Of Whispers – «Carcosa»

Grove Of Whispers - «Carcosa»Cat.# … DNA 173
Release Date … 29.03.2015
Genre … Drone Ambient, Dark Ambient, Field Recordings
Type … FLAC Lossless

There is an ambience which surrounds you even as it exists within you. A place of dark emotions. Hate, lust, pride, intolerance. A powerful emotional burden.

You awaken from a sickness-induced sleep to find yourself lost in an unfamiliar wilderness. You sense a presence. It is around you, within you – a feeling of darkness and anxiety, the presence is you.

A landscape is revealed. A place of dark sexuality, forbidden desires and primordial sins.

Slowly developing loops of heavy drones and vast soundscapes filled with chants, moans and other human sounds produce an intensity of sonic presence. A place you will come to know as Carcosa.

Inspired by the short story «An Inhabitant of Carcosa», about a man who awakens to find he is long dead. The author, Ambrose Bierce vanished without a trace under mysterious circumstances.

Tracklisting:

  1. Grove Of Whispers – Carcosa (59:40)

Lost in the weird dreams, push your way through swaying strata of gluey air. Lost behind the summer, listen how life is crawling past while you’re sitting locked in an opalescent bulb.

Lilly – «Forest Of Utopias»

Lilly - «Forest Of Utopias»Cat.# … DNA 171
Release Date … 14.03.2015
Genre … Drone Ambient
Type … FLAC Lossless

Drone ambient is perfectly suited to be a tool for reflective minds in their search for paints to draw pictures arising in their imagination. In the «Forest Of Utopias» drone ambient soundscapes contrast with sharp radio noises, touches of melodies and other sound snatches. It looks like small particles wander in vast worlds which wander in unbounded Universe, too. While small particles live their short lives inside those worlds, worlds are born and eventually collapsing in the end of their looking endless travel.

«Forest Of Utopias» offers five meditative drone ambient tracks for quiet hovering above immense soundscapes where worlds become particles in the seemeingly infinite Universe.

Instruments: field recordings, Hulusi, singing bowls, tape experiments, Mehannoizer-ST, Massive 1.1.4 – Native Instruments, Paulstretch 2-2.2.

Thanks to Ivan Pazdnikov for play on single-row accordion.

  1. Lilly – Snow And Flowers (13:58)
  2. Lilly – Ethereal Travel (17:07)
