Kotra

Dmytro "Kotra" Fedorenko studied mathematics at National University of Ukraine and classic guitar at music school in Kyiv. Started making music in 1994 as bass player in jazz-noise band Potercha. In 1996 Dmytro found noise duo Zet and made a series of performances with independent visual artists and videomakers in Kyiv. During 1997-1998 Dmytro participated in several video-art, net-art and interactive workshops in Soros Center for Contemporary art in Kyiv. In 1998 after Dmytro left Zet, he started his solo project Kotra. Since that time Dmytro released more than 12 full length albums and collaborations, has worked with Zavoloka, Andrey Kiritchenko, Moljebka Pvlse, Kim Cascone, Pomassl, Jeff Surak, Alexei Borisov and Andreas Berthling. Kotra's tracks were released on different compilations in Europe, USA and Ukraine. Dmytro also made music for miscellaneous interactive CD-r, web and video projects together with Akuvido group. Made insonations for short films. Since 2003 Kotra played live on numerous festivals around Europe, such as Clubtransmediale festival in Berlin, Garage festival in Stralsund, Unsound festival in Krakow, Noise&Fury festival in Moscow and many many others.

... now Kotra runs his own label Kvitnu and organizers concerts for unstable music from bizarre artists..

Albums:

Kotra, Zavoloka. Wag the Swing. /eco-pack/.


It thrills. Cool and warm, tart and sweet, quiet and agitated that is sounding of this disc. Joyful and straightforward children in love whose feelings are reciprocal can be like that. As to my taste, of course because who know...

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.

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 if this sort of a definition makes any sense at all. However, it does not describe all compositions on the album there are rhythmic structures, and structured noise...

Kotra, Zavoloka, Dunaewsky69. Kallista. /eco-pack/.


"Kallista" is an hour-long journey through contrasts. Sometimes muted, soft, sometimes quite sharp. But, in any case, these are deep, voluminous sound miniatures, in which there is space for meditative immersion, and for purely urban drive, and for futuristic fantasies, and for essentially shamanistic experiences.

Kotra, Sturqen. Luz. (EP, CDr). /mini-pack/.


All this analog noise is like a rolling forest of glass, concrete, and plastic, which has acquired its own life in liquid light of the majestic sun. Thick and terrible when you look at it closely, but transparent and brittle when you do not look away from it...
Domestic price: 195.33UAH, International price: $17.92USD

Kotra. Renaissance. (EP, CDr). /mini-pack/.


Kotra loads, dissipates attention with monotonous rhythms, layers, small murmurs and broken pulsations and all of that, as a result, becomes like ashes. On which you blow and the unnecessary disappears, and there will loom through it, as if the phoenix, the word of the new Beginning..

Songs:

Andrey Kiritchenko. Bees & Honey.


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