Svyatoslav Lunyov. Para Pacem  Para Bellum.

Don't we still find sporadically both time and inspiration for strange things and acts? Aren't we still able to at least sometimes see the world not as someone shows it to us, but such as we see it? Aren't we still capable of our own searches and conclusions, own pain and vein, own sadness and gladness? Reflections and revolutions, destructions and purifications, fear and crashes, heart and sun... This disk of the Kyiv composer Svyatoslav Lunyov is not an answer, not a panacea. It is a question, juxtaposition, collision. And penetration, association. From outside, the album may sometimes appear rough, unfriendly, set for a dispute. But it seems to me that in reality it is fragile and defenseless. This music is as though a child who was unfairly offended by strangers, and it can start crying from despair, or it can initiate a fight. However, it can also start laughing and, in the end, that is to what all that leads, and results in. In any case, the green sprout chops up concrete and a person comes to purification and joy. Everyone in his/her own way, and sometimes already after death, but comes, in any case. However, it is not necessary at all to wait until then there is always a choice. That is why disks like this one are needed. At all events, it seems to me that "Para Pacem Para Bellum" by Svyatoslav Lunyov is music of purification. Not automatic but through realization.

Zavoloka. Vedana. /eco-pack/.


It is exploration of Water Element. It is inspired by knowledge about Ukrainian Cossacks-Magicians, so-called Kharakternyky, that could control forces of nature, particularly water. They used to drink spring water to purify their energy and to became undistinguished and fluid as water. To reach inner melting.

Kotra. Reset. /eco-pack/.


..the monotonous repetition of the structure of formal motions results in that you stop taking this structure into account, noticing it from now on you see quite different things here. This, if you wish, can be compared with Buddhists' reading of mantras: first you set a structure, and then you go beyond its scopes. So, Kotra has not abandoned the quest and again tries to fit the listener into a situation of liberation.

Dunaewsky69. Xquisite. Xcerpt. /eco-pack/.


We could say that it is a disc rather easy for perception so easy that even almost a dancing one. In any case, rhythms pulsate stably here, do not break, do not disappear all of a sudden. The other way round they develop, flow, grow in. But, at the same time, the melodies induce not so much to entertainment and loud conversations as to reflections, attentive perception.

The Moglass, Vanessa Arn, Tom Carter. Snake-tongued Swallow-tailed...


And due to active use of live instruments, this music is called post-rock. And due to how exactly and in what combinations they are used it is named ambient and psycho-folk. It is a live, warm matter, and it bears a long, tangible, contemplative feeling of coziness, growth, flow...

ONUKA, NAOFI. MOZAKA. /digi-pack/. (Mosaics)


"Mosaics" is like a home with a thousand windows, behind each of them there being a new landscape, its own story... and what goes without words. A bright house where all these different stories complement each other. Actually, Onuka does define her style as electro-folk, and this is, again, an intersection of the archaic and the modern via an attempt to pronounce old signs in the modern language.

NIK_TO. Open.


This is as if an ocean liner flows in the large water: sharp sounds of dancing music echo from some deck, in the wardroom one hears laughter and an intellectual cabaret surprises, and from the hold mysterious sounds of invisible but saturated motions are meantime heard. While all around there is always only the dark sky, salty air and the water that you see neither the edge nor the bottom of...

NIK_TO. ChronoMaster.


I recommend not to do anything for some time, there is a nice alternative. Without exaggeration and flattery discs by exactly this man can be called original electronic symphonies, and I am not sure that there are analogues of this phenomenon in Ukraine.

NIK_TO. The Flora.


What color will it be salty, as the sea, green, as life, or boundless, as the sky? Well see... Anyway, this album has free internal horizons thus, one cannot grasp, embrace everything at the first try...

Kyiv Camerata. Alexander Levkovich. Chamber Works.


Levkovych's stile can be characterized as vivid, colorful and original. His works are composed in a very modern manner utilizing a serial technique, while being simple and romantic. He applies the timbers of different instruments very well and experiments with orchestral sounds.
Domestic price: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

Kyiv Camerata. Oleh Kiva. Chamber Works. (2CD).

Domestic price: 124.08UAH, International price: $11.28USD

State chamber ensemble "Kyiv Soloists", Yevhen Stankovych. Live in Kyiv. /digi-pack/


...one of important features of all his music lies herein it is practically impossible to perceive it in a contemplative, alienated way. Because it carries not only the atmosphere, feeling, space but also a certain thought, question, message. Sometimes simple and clear, but often encoded, hidden in complicated constructions and strong (as they seem from outside) emotions.
Domestic price: 218.90UAH, International price: $19.90USD

Kyiv Chamber Choir. Romuald Twardowski. "Kyivska" Liturgy.


Romuald Twardowski composes in 2006 "Kyivska" Liturgy and dedicates it exactly to the chamber choir "Kyiv". Such honor and attention could not remain without an answer consequently, as it could be expected, the choir became the performer of the Liturgy... This is, sure, a good record transparently soft and strong at the same time.
Domestic price: 295.90UAH, International price: $26.90USD

Valentyn Sylvestrov, Kyiv Camerata. Meditation (symphony for violoncello and chamber orchestra).


His "Meditation" is a symphony for a violoncello and a chamber orchestra. Meditation in a general sense is a state, a process and quality at the same time. Since a symphony is called to reproduce and to recreate the first, the second and the third, it is hopeless to reproduce the content. This music...
