Release title is a misspelt word «asphyxia» that means air insufficiency which attends central nervous system and blood circulation disorders.

This collaborative work have been started by Vitaly Maklakov who selected unreleased Obozdur tracks created in spring / summer 2008 and sent it to LN 313 via internet.

LN 313 has reworked Obozdur sound sources. He has added something new to it changing each track in his own way. When reworks were done, LN 313 has sent tracks back to Vitaly.

Under LN 313 influence Obozdur’s impulsivity and anxiety have became a bit abstract. Sound has got sharpness and coldness, textures have lost its homogeneity but have put on depth.

581C part «Evangelion» is a single long track inspired by anime series with same name. It’s dark and claustrophobic ambient that sounds like mystical noises in a forgotten space station.

Obozdur – «Two Different Parts Of One Day»

Obozdur - «Two Different Parts Of One Day»мCat.# … DNA 25
Release Date … 11.10.2008
Genre … Experimental, Ambient, Industrial
Type … FLAC Lossless

Tiredness, distraction, anxiety, waiting for better times – all these things are in the first track «Twilight At 14 O’Clock».

And the second track «Weekend Weather Forecast» is alongside tiredness again, satisfaction, limpness, meditative immersion in sound ambience, positive mood, slow reactions to small changes in ambience.

Vitaly Maklakov’s Obozdur presents another work that inherits all Obozdur’s features like multidimentional sound layers, fine work with micronoises, plenty of different sound materials harmoniously combined with each other, whimsicality and non-linear composition.

But «Two Different Parts Of One Day» has its own key feature. Strong dub influence and accurate rhythm structures discover the new side of Obozdur’s balance on the edge between experimental ambient and post industrial. That surprising combination directs dark and anxious Obozdur music at the contrary vector to the positive calm side full of meditative loops and relaxing slow rhythms.
