Flangeri – «Joy Of Restriction»

Flangeri - «Joy Of Restriction»Cat.# … DNA 183
Release Date … 12.07.2016
Genre … Drone
Type … FLAC

In Flangeri’s new work «Joy Of Restriction» melancholic and meditative improvisations are embodied of vibrant drones that look like river waves bringing myriads of flecks to the shore where you sit. Like the river waves, these drones never hasten and slowly reach their climax before calming down in multiple resonances. Covertly appearing behind the resonances, even and simple melody easily develops from the echoes of colliding drones, getting drown in their pulsatings. Growing in strength, the melody flies over waves of drones of various tonality and length. Reaching the peak in the second half of the more than 35 minutes long piece, the melody – or a pack of endlessly repeated melodies’ fragments – slowly dissolves in drones’ rhythmed breathing, and as the drones start to fade, they let the melody to fade with them as well.

Tracklisting:

  1. Flangeri – Joy Of Restriction (35:42)

System Morgue & iatemyself – «Split»

System Morgue & iatemyself - «Split»Cat.# … DNA 181
Release Date … 16.05.2016
Genre … Drone, Noise
Type … FLAC

Here is next System Morgue’s return to DNA Production, this time as a split work shared with another Moscow-based project iatemyself.

In his two-tracks part System Morgue fills up air with guitar drones where vibrating, shivering consonances mix with heavy breathing pulsations, and fragmentary sonic images comprise a sickly acoustic illusion occasionally teared by sound upsurges of distorted guitar neurasthenia. Sometimes it looks like a drift towards areas of guitar noise but in fact it happens in iatemyself’s three-tracks part where jumble of electrical interferences and distorted sounds boils up. This dense and physically perceived sonic cloud presses ears with low-frequency waves while high-frequency bursts split and lumps together this uneasy acoustic mass making visible its parts and then stepping back for a moment to let see the whole panorama of enraged sonic elements.

Tracklisting:

  1. System Morgue – Mourir de ne pas mourir (10:50)
  2. System Morgue – Jours de pluie (14:11)
  3. iatemyself – Guess I’ve Been There Before (03:07)
  4. iatemyself – Syntony (11:56)
  5. iatemyself – Whotoldyouthat (05:49)

Igl00 & lost-radio – «Untitled Scenes IV»

Igl00 & lost-radio - «Untitled Scenes IV»Cat.# … DNA 175
Release Date … 09.06.2015
Genre … Drone
Type … FLAC Lossless

After a half of a year Igl00 and his collaborator lost-radio continue «Untitled Scenes» series with new work called simply “Untitled Scenes IV”. New work is as short as previous «Untitled Scenes III» and there are some similarities between them. Differences are spotted though but they look like logical development of ideas presented in the previous works.

Igl00’s part remains on the side of minimalism and isolationism wrapped in a veil of unostentatious hum. Two tracks are made in the usual Igl00 manner, this time maybe more chamber-like: less space and details, more transparency and concentrating on main lines of music development.

lost-radio’s part is more diversified. «Scene XII» looks like dense and complex track made in the style very close to drone ambient. On the contrary, «Scene XIV» is much closer to Igl00’s tracks in sound and atmosphere. Here is a lot of noise, the same minimalistic approach and similar isolationist disposition.

Tracklisting:

  1. Igl00 – Scene XI (07:36)
  2. lost-radio – Scene XII (08:11)
  3. Igl00 – Scene XIII (07:02)
  4. lost-radio – Scene XIV (07:13)

Grove Of Whispers – «The Black Ships»

Grove Of Whispers - «The Black Ships»Cat.# … DNA 170
Release Date … 05.03.2015
Genre … Dark Ambient, Soundscape, Drone, Experimental, Field Recordings
Type … FLAC Lossless

«The Black Ships». A rare bird of electronic music.

A pure improvisation collaging field recordings of the seemingly mundane and everyday world with electronic sounds which arise from an ever-changing configuration of virtual machines.

An improvised sonic sculpture – evoking an imaginary world, brought forth by the artist in real time. A pandemonium of creaks, knocks, taps, voices, cries, noises, drones, and low-frequency vibrations.

Has a black ship wandered from a course in an unknown ocean? Or is a white airplane flying to obscurity through roaring winds? With Grove of Whispers the musician’s imagination springs to life. It’s your turn to immerse yourself in this world. Take the ticket. Destination? The dark and hidden recesses of your mind.

Tracklisting:

  1. Grove Of Whispers – The Black Ships (59:59)

Meho – «Brojevi»

Meho - «Brojevi»Cat.# … DNA 164
Release Date … 13.01.2015
Genre … Drone, Dark Ambient
Type … FLAC Lossless

«Brojevi» means «Numbers» so this work consists of four tracks called respectively «Dva» («Two»), «Pet» («Five»), «Osam» («Eight»), and «Deset» («Ten»).

Meho presents them as drone tracks but the opening «Dva» reveals elements of dark ambient and post-industrial floating in viscous drone layers of various opacity. «Pet» differs in the mood but follows «Dva» in mixing dark ambient elements and deceleratedly pulsing drone loops accompanied with industrial noises. «Osam» adds some high-frequency consonances to emphasize seething ultra-low-frequency drone depths whose bottomlessness was suddenly pierced with those well-known industrial noises. «Deset» summarizes previous tendencies designing complex construction of multi-directional drone flows and synthetic and/or industrial sounds encapsulated in short loops.

Tracklisting:

  1. Meho – Dva (14:00)
  2. Meho – Pet (12:00)
  3. Meho – Osam (16:00)
  4. Meho – Deset (14:00)

Igl00 – «Ниже нуля (Lower Than Zero)»

Igl00 - «Ниже нуля (Lower Than Zero)»Cat.# … DNA 157
Release Date … 02.04.2014
Genre … Drone, Isolationism, Field Recordings
Type … FLAC Lossless

«…We had “strayed”, as the Swede put it, into some region or some set of conditions where the risks were great, yet unintelligible to us; where the frontiers of some unknown world lay close about us. It was a spot held by the dwellers in some outer space, a sort of peep-hole whence they could spy upon the earth, themselves unseen, a point where the veil between had worn a little thin…»

This quotation from «The Willows», a story by Algernon Blackwood, is a better description for the atmosphere created by this work. «Ниже нуля (Lower Than Zero)» consists of minimalistic isolationist soundscapes which split up into myriads of noises of uncertain nature. Weird, cold, incomprehensible – it’s something beyond human perception.

Tracklisting:

  1. Igl00 – Ниже Нуля (Lower Than Zero) (18:08)
