Variable melodies suddenly appear from nowhere and pierce supple soundscapes and noise layers. Later they slowly dissolve in the soundscapes to give birth to new consonances… Sonic illusions, deceptive images behind tangibly embossed human voices and vibrating strings tones. Awakening out of time, waiting and sound detection in the space around. Slow discovering nearest places, perception persistence accumulation, gradual incapsulation in own consciousness, fading activities, introspection, falling asleep…
This four-track work is fully builded on various combinations of sounds, noises, drones, melodies and spirits. It provokes associations, it consists of associations, it draws sonic pictures and impels listener to paint them with colors depending on his imagination.

Black holes of the semantic space (les trous noirs de l’espace sémantique) are related to the dialogues of the deaf, a common activity on this strange planet.
In this album, the sounds come and go, hesitate, disappear and then they reappear more far in time. They are trying to avoid, but also they are scrambling to finally get lost in space, without even trying to harmonize.
These chaotic soundscapes act as a reflection of our society of hyper-communication in which the informations, the messages, all the words, and all the data get lost anywhere.
Nobody try to understand and everything always ends in a great dialogue of the deaf, each arguing for oneself, and ultimately the knowledge is lost in the black holes of the semantic space.

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.
The first untitled track of «berdetovka» was recorded in September/October 2014.
The second untitled track was recorded in October/November 2014.
The third untitled track was recorded in November 2014.
All tracks composed, mixed, recorded and designed by Anatoly Khvostishko at «B».

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.
