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)

Kolpakopf – «INFERIAE»

Kolpakopf - «INFERIAE»Cat.# … DNA 174
Release Date … 22.04.2015
Genre … Dark Ambient
Type … FLAC Lossless

This time Kolpakopf brings us to the edge of underworld. His new work «INFERIAE» sends to ancient grave rituals of bringing sacred offerings to the beings of underworld – to the spirits of the dead. Arisen from the depths of time, these rites transformed to sacrificial practices, from horrible Phoenician human sacrifices to harmless Christian oblations.

What is the essence of these practices? What does it mean for people who donate now and offered blood sacrifices in the past? What the difference between a savage who brings grains to the dead and a modern man who lays a wreath on a grave? And is there a difference?

Kolpakopf doesn’t offer any answers. His «INFERIAE» just helps to keep the doors half-open, helps to descend to your own inner underworld, and helps to see the roots of those rituals, to see obscure paths from the present to the past.

Tracklisting:

  1. Kolpakopf – Untitled (41:53)

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)

Release Date … 21.03.2015
Genre … Drone Ambient, Dark Ambient, Field Recordings

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. Time streams go by swiftly making you feel yourself vertiginous. «The Lost» is the soundtrack for your grotesque dream of being lost outside the time.

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.

Tracklisting:

  1. Lilly – Snow And Flowers (13:58)
  2. Lilly – Ethereal Travel (17:07)
  3. Lilly – Hunger (12:58)
  4. Lilly – Gornilo (08:21)
  5. Lilly – Pale Moon (13:12)

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)

Vitaly Maklakov – «Железнодорожная (Railway)»

Vitaly Maklakov - «Железнодорожная (Railway)»Cat.# … DNA 169
Release Date … 25.02.2015
Genre … Field Recordings
Type … FLAC Lossless

This work consists of field recordings but while the recordings were taken in a railway area it should be called urban recordings or something like this.

Aural perception of railway’s ambient space in first track is more contemplative, clear and aerial. Birds, rain, children’s voices fringed massive sounds produced by railway coaches and diesel locomotives.
The second track looks a bit abstract. Various sounds of industrial nature, mechanical noises, creaks make it more noisy, heavier in sound, and it looks like acoustic snapshot of true industrial ambience.

All recordings have been made at a poplar alley near Zheleznodorozhnaya (Railway) street, Kamensk-Uralsky, Russia in October-November 2014.

Tracklisting:

  1. Vitaly Maklakov – Железнодорожная (31.10.2014) (13:35)
  2. Vitaly Maklakov – Железнодорожная (23.11.2014) (09:45)

Depletion Region – «Granular Dominions 1»

Depletion Region - «Granular Dominions 1»Cat.# … DNA 168
Release Date … 21.02.2015
Genre … Experimental, Ambient
Type … FLAC Lossless

Some time ago DNA Production announced «music of micro-worlds», and now it widens at the new level of more complex matters, to some granular dominions. Here physical processes find their audio expressions. Every particle, atom, molecule find a voice to complete a choir which could describe in sonic form any process occurring within and between complex compounds whether it be stone, water, air or metal.

Here ambient soundscapes are limited to the micro world boundaries. They merge together with the aid of short electroacoustic-like sonic links as well as atoms join complex molecular compounds. Sonic compounds form sound granules. Granules interact on their own level and create new sounds – vibrating drones, short clicks, pulsing loops, and music of continuing physical processes still sounds…

Tracklisting:

  1. Depletion Region – Labradorescence (09:44)
  2. Depletion Region – Fermions (07:54)
  3. Depletion Region – Ice Globes (12:18)
  4. Depletion Region – Kriptoments (11:02)
  5. Depletion Region – Lynx (09:55)
  6. Depletion Region – Copper Smoke (12:03)
  7. Depletion Region – Collision Cascade (10:37)

Кромешна – «Ветряки»

Кромешна - «Ветряки»Cat.# … DNA 167
Release Date … 11.02.2015
Genre … Drone Ambient, Field Recordings
Type … FLAC Lossless

Кромешна gets back to DNA Production with another murky and deep work, a snapshot of the world around – at this time and at this place. 37-minute-long piece of hum, noise and hubbub from working windmill’s machinery with bird’s twittering in the fields around – that’s «Ветряки», windmills in Russian.

«Ветряки» is not just a field recording. On the contrary, this is self-sufficient system full of industrial noises and heavy drones. That’s a particular feature peculiar to Kromeshna/Кромешна. This project’s works are always uneasy and always gazing into itself inviting a listener to look inside it and inside yourself as well.

Tracklisting:

  1. Кромешна – Ветряки (36:58)

Berthelot – «Mécanique Des Limbes»

Berthelot - «Mécanique Des Limbes»Cat.# … DNA 166
Release Date … 02.02.2015
Genre … Electroacoustic, Post-Concrete
Type … FLAC Lossless

In French language, the word «limbe» (singular) represents the tangible in the fields of Astronomy (the disk edge of a celestial body), of Botany (the broad and flattened part of a leaf), and of the Mechanical Precision (the circular or semicircular edge engraved of a measuring instrument).

In the plural, «limbes», the word falls in both literary and psychological fields of abstractions. It becomes pale and dull (in speaking of a light), or it turns into uncertain states and touches the unconscious and the unreal.

If some people leave their dreams in the limbo of the awakening to better forget them, Berthelot strives to explore these limbo to facilitate the memory of his dreams. The sounds of «Mécanique des limbes» show this exploration in the uncertain states of awakening, where the real and the unreal are merged.

Recorded in January 2014 somewhere in France.

Sleeve desigh by Berthelot & Graph’Hypnotic.

Tracklisting:

  1. Berthelot – Mécanique Des Limbes I (12:06)
  2. Berthelot – Mécanique Des Limbes II (12:22)
  3. Berthelot – Mécanique Des Limbes III (12:10)
