Zavoloka

Zavoloka is an electronic music composer and graphic designer from Kyiv city, Ukraine.

She traveling by Ukraine and recording native traditional ethnic folk songs, which singing old people in country-sides of Ukraine. But nevertheless it's not about world-music. The aim is to reach interplay between the electronic context and rough unprocessed voices that common people sing with. This produces a very 'human' outcome (owing to the spirit that unaffected voices bring), yet staying electronically saturated, post-sounding and edgy. Zavoloka's music consists of intensive varied sound motions and unexpected combinations piped into carefully controlled electronic flows. Never try to predict anything, it can turn out in what one just cannot predict. Some of Zavoloka's friends amongst musicians admit, that her music is very unusual from the structural point of view. When asked about the motive of building such a diverse and complicated constructions, she explained her intention to produce more and more frank music that could reflect her momentary shades of feelings and emotions.

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...
Domestic price: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

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 doesnt deny dancing) What is more, its full of interesting acoustic effects and live performance makes the musical canvas clear, fresh and very warm at the same time.
Domestic price: 174.90UAH, International price: $15.90USD

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, 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. 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...
