GTI & Obozdur – «Свалка бетонных изделий»

Cat.# … DNA 23
Release Date … 20.09.2008
Genre … Dark Ambient, Noise
Type … mp3 CBR 320 kbps

First part is waiting for an outburst.

Vibrating in tension walls of dark ambient are transpierced with microsounds of anisochronously bursting interatomic links. Noises pierce ambient walls. They instantly spread through reinforcement net, crumpling and destructing. It’s just like sudden pain pierces body and burn nerves.

And then a furious swirling comes in second part. Abrasive noise outbursts are overflowed with analogue noise blows. After a few minutes of clash both sides are taken up by hot steam of boiler house curling noise just a seconds before explosion that will ruin boiler leaving only concrete slab fragments with rusty reinforcement scraps…

This Russian projects GTI and Obozdur collaborative work results in explosive blend of dark ambient and noise with dense and rich sound.

Письма с изнанки – «Бездна детства»

Cat.# … DNA 22
Release Date … 09.09.2008
Genre … Dark Ambient
Type … mp3 CBR 320 kbps

Raw and deep dark ambient soundscapes hide myriads of sound fragments – human voices, concrete noises and synthetic dissonances, creating hundreds of craters leading into the Inside, into subconsciousness, into the dark abyss of childhood.

Child’s fears and worries, early trauma – all leave never-healing scars. Those scars are steps that lead to the cliff over the Great Unknown.
Theme of the album is child encountering death.

At first he senses it vaguely like a deja vu in a hustle of an early morning, on his way to school at predawn hours, in the cold air after the warmth of his bed; he feels it’s intangible presence in dark corners of his room and his heart fills with primordial fear. And then death comes into his home and he sees it in its greatness and horror.

Recorded in 2007.
Mastered by Seclorum.

Tracklisting:

  1. Письма с изнанки – Зима. Понедельник. Утро. (Winter. Monday. Morning.) (23:07)
  2. Письма с изнанки – Тёмные углы (Dark Corners) (5:13)
