v4w.enko. Harmonic Ratio. /eco-pack/.
Does not it seem to you that this album has a rather paradoxical name? Paradoxical not to that extent that it became senseless Ц however, to the degree sufficient to induce that ratio (meaning "reason") to bite its own tail. I mean here that our reason seems to aspire to harmony, but for some reason interprets it as rest Ц in which it is no longer able to identify itself, and that is why it avoids this state. Therefore, each time, having attained certain rest, some next step is undertaken Ц to break the equilibrium, provoke motion, in order to discover, to come to know oneself in this motion. In other words, searching for harmony Ц it constantly escapes it, as it is afraid to get lost, to dissolve. Well, and fear as such is a bad assistant in any business, from a choice of an umbrella to self-discovery. But from time to time the understanding arises from somewhere of that there was nothing to be afraid of, because is fact the issue is not a static state but motion Ц that is, the constant must be exactly the dynamics or balancing between the intuitional and rational. But dynamics in rest: when the main motion takes place inside, and no superfluous bustle arises outside. This is the approximate map that this album draws for me... However, if one listens to it on another day or if one just interprets the name as "harmonious correlation" Ц the picture, presumably, will be somewhat different. Though, for the disc it is only a merit Ц as it proves that it leaves free space for perception. And that this space is not empty Ц you should not doubt.

CAT. COPICAT. /digi-pack/.

Thin broken lines, fearful meetings of unexpected sounds, excited breath of strings, valves, opinions, voices, and Ц the cool space where all of that happens. A mirror broken into pieces Ц each chip of it remembering the whole and dancing in the air trying to catch the entire memory together, not just fragment...

Kotra. Revolt. /eco-pack/.

Every new work by Dmytro Fedorenko aka Kotra is something interesting, non-trivial. But this time his new album, probably, will most of all entertain fans of the minimalist discrete noise Ц if this sort of a definition makes any sense at all. However, it does not describe all compositions on the album Ц there are rhythmic structures, and structured noise...

Der Neustuck Orchester. Underground Horse.

Acquaintance simultaneous with farewell, and consequently Ц endless and vanishing, with all possible plenitude of emptine... A strange black-and-white flower that one needs to break in order to see all colors of the spectrum on the stem fracture. In an instant a drop of night juice oozes there..

Andrey Kiritchenko. Bees & Honey.

..the spaces of, in particular, Andrey Kiritchenko Ц regardless of what exact mixtures he prepares this or another time Ц are always an invitation to a very intimate, that is friendly, calm-and-attentive dialog. Exactly a dialog Ц the audience's attention creates this music together with the musician, that's why each time this music may be substantially different. And Ц must be different.

Zavoloka. Viter. (EP). /eco-pack/.

...And now it is that subtle dancing music which excites the desire not to dance but to listen carefully. Of course it doesnТt deny dancing) What is more, itТs full of interesting acoustic effects and live performance makes the musical canvas clear, fresh and very warm at the same time.

Andrey Kiritchenko. Stuffed With/Out.

This is the dimension of fairy-tales Ц those, real, in which there is always incomparably more of truth than in daily news. However, such stories are usually named not fairy-tales, but legends and myths Ц some wisdom, which no shallow knowledge is able to overcome, always stands behind them. And at the same time, Sniff, Humpty Dumpty or Horseshoe Bird feel perfect there...

CAT. CAT. /digi-pack/

...any certain definitions should be destroyed here, so that there were no temptation of restriction. And just Ц to plunge into silence of these somewhat innerved from the outside, but unostentatious, deeply intelligent searches for transparency. Searches for pure, sonorous, self-sufficing sound.
