The ANS Synthesizer (Синтезатор АНС) [26 Oct 2009|12:33pm]

octopus_online
21 октября 2009 года ГЦММК им. М.И. Глинки концерт посвящённый 95-летию со дня рождения Евгения Александровича Мурзина.
Видео демонстрирует эксперимент: АНС воспроизводит рисунок художника Светланы Богатырь "Неведомые Миры". 


Синтезатор АНС фотоэлектронный музыкальный инструмент сконструирован русским изобретателем Евгением Мурзиным в 1958 году.
С помощью АНСа композитор может создавать музыку любых колоритов в непосредственно звучащем виде, без музыкантов исполнителей, он записывает нужные ему звуки на стекле, покрытом непрозрачной несохнущей краской, снимая резцами краску в определенных местах. Это стекло является своеобразной партитурой инструмента, работая на партитуре синтезатора, композитор уподобляется художнику, пишущему картину: он подкрашивает, ретуширует, стирает и наносит новые кодовые рисунки, осуществляя слуховой контроль получаемого результата.
Свобода работы у такой партитуры таит в себе неисчерпаемые возможности.

Изобретение было названо конструктором «АНС» в честь композитора Александра Николаевича Скрябина.
Большую часть музыки к фильмам Андрея Тарковского Эдуард Артемьев написал с помощью АНС.

В 2003 году британская экспериментальная группа Coil выпустила альбом ANS, включающий композиции, созданные с помощью этого синтезатора.

Musica Excentrica presents our new releases:

Volga — “At Ausland”



Sounds like ethnic, folklore, industrial...

Angela Manukian, Alexei Borisov, Yuri Balashov and Roman Lebedev have created the most, and the only well-known, in international music area, Russian project, working in folklore/authentic style, connecting together Slavic ancient and national songs and actual electronic tunes.

Listen and download on Musica Excentrica

Tomoko Sauvage and Gilles Aubry — “Apam Napat”



Sounds like microtonal, free-improvised...

Tomoko Sauvage improvises on waterbowls, a self-developed percussion instrument made of Chinese porcelain bowls filled with water, inspired by an instrument of carnatic music (South India), Jalatarangam. The serene sound and melodies are live-sampled and slightly processed by Gilles Aubry to create new layers of sound mixed with the original ones. This polyphonic interplay between primitive sound of water vibration and its time-lagged samples generates illusory vertigo.

CD-R and Quest.Room.Project - "Digital Snow"



Nikita Golyshev, known as CD-R, and Bogdan Dullsky (Quest.Room.Project) met virtually and have recorded an album. First, they share music file sources in the net, and then processed with real-time sound recordings through peer-to-peer connection.

The result is a collage of acoustic and digital pieces, gathered in one snowfall.

Taiga on Electrosound [04 Jun 2008|12:39am]

nikita_golyshev
[ mood | calm ]



Taiga is a solo project of Denis Taiga from Saint-Petersburg, Russia, exists with a wide collaborations by other musicians. Bitter Tragic Joke is the collection of previously unreleased tracks, recorded in a period of six years, since 2002 till present days.

Sampladelic experience and ethnic eclectic jazz are the basic lines of Taiga: we can hear a lot of samples from Soviet movie pictures and cassette tapes, mixed with authentic folklore recordings and modern electronics. While mixing, the source dissolves in some kind of deep sound clew, so even musician cannot understand where does it come from... He calls this Hypno.

Лейбл www.kahvi.org открыл миру таких мастеров idm как Lackluster, planet boelex, esem, stud и др.

 bad loop (Финляндия)

Финский электронный проект российского происхождения, сочиняющий качественный downtempo и idm. Несмотря на сравнительно недолгую историю коллектива, проект успел засветиться на нескольких международных фестивалях, а также гастролировал в Европе, в частности в Англии. Первое выступление в Москве.

Esem (Болгария)

Альбом проекта Esem – Scateren изданный бесплатно в формате ogg на лейбле Kahvi.org стал одним из самых скачиваемых в истории нетлейблов. Первое выступление Георгия Маринова в России несомненно станет событием в музыкальной жизни столицы.

Planet Boelex (Финляндия)

Проект финского музыканта Оскари Сорри, полюбившегося московской публике на NCCA Fest 2007, вновь с концертом в ГЦСИ. На этот раз новая программа, уже отыгранная на фестивалях K?lmk?la Paide (Эстония), Virus Art Festival (Литва) и Klusa Daba Festival (Латвия).

Uniquetunes on ElectroSound [09 May 2008|06:09pm]

[ mood | calm ]



Contemporary psychedelic jazz, live electronics, modern indie rock... call it anything you like! This is Uniquetunes band with a new full-power album on ElectroSound.

Started as quartet, now they are eight and they still play music totally live. All tracks were recorded without using any computers and the result sounds astonishing: full-power psychedelic jazz mixed with adjusted art-rock.

Psychedelic ambient and soviet analog synths! [28 Apr 2008|01:16am]

nikita_golyshev
[ mood | calm ]

Musica Excentrica presents:



Astrowind — “Fresh Wind in the Valley of Dreams”



Astrowind might be a slightly ridiculous band name, especially if you consider the fact these two Latvian guys play lush ambient music on Soviet synthesizers. But nevertheless, it’s a good name. An accurate name, at least. Because there is a feel of acroamatic escapism, there are these huge chords of hissing analogue synthesizers and you can even find this special kind of Slavonian melancholia (or Baltic, respectively) people use to rave about. Astrowind bring up a lot of references in their beautiful and, well, obsolete music (text by Swen Swift).

This is the full-length album by Astrowind wich leads listener to the world of supernatural reality - the world of blossoming syntesizer-pads and carefully built soundscapes.

Tunguska by 833-45 on Musica Excentrica [09 Mar 2008|09:18pm]

nikita_golyshev
[ mood | ecstatic ]



If your familiar with the music of Kevin M. Krebs composing under is 833-45 alias, then I think that you'll agree that Tunguska might just be his most compelling work to date under that guise. Just the association of the names 833-45 and Tunguska is suggestive of the sonic power inherent to this album. On the one hand, we have 833-45 delivering his own formidable take on electronic music and the noise aesthetic, but along with that we have the powerful image of the well documented 1908 Tunguska Event in which a massive explosion (possibly caused by the air burst of large meteoroid or comet fragment) flattened over 2000 square kilometers of a remote region in Russia.

Share My Wings netlabel presents:




smw014: Chikiss - Untitled Vitamin

Galya Chikiss founded her band in a small town named Primorsk, in the North-West of Russia. There she met two futher members of her group, Alexander Belkov (drummer) and Alexander Dubrovin (guitarist). They began to experiment with various equipment, such as Soviet reverberators, to see how delay-loops and improvised electronica could form the basis of Galya's songs.

Untitled vitamin is an album full of warm vocal drawings, sound sometimes lo-fi, but always sincere and honest.

exc011 oxy — “Rved.Tha” EP

Musica Excentrica returns to netlabelism planet with a new "Rved. Tha" EP by oxy: six conceptual remixes of the cult russian band Zvuki Mu, made by Ivan Pavlov (aka COH).

“Rved. Tha” EP has been recorded in December 2002. It was inspired and based upon an ELECTRO T. – an album by a rather infamous Russian artist ZVUKI MU. “Rved. Tha” EP re-interprets the first six pieces from the album, exclusively utilizing the sound of these. The duration of each “remake” is equal to that of the original and the titles are intended to reinterpret the original titles.

A couple of brand new and (as always) astonishing tracks from musicians you know, plus some new groups, united various emotianal states together in entire electronic mood. We like this music, hope you will like it, too. Keep listening and we will keep on moving.

es37: Ainm - Places and Names [02 Dec 2007|10:39pm]
net_audio

NetAudio Russia presents a new album...



Ainm is a downtempo and electronica-oriented one-man project launched in 2005 by Moscow composer and musician Ilya Kovalev (now living in Oxfordshire, United Kingdom). Ainm (which simply means name in Irish) follows the style that could be roughly described as historical electro, a combination of computer music techniques with strong interest to historical musical forms and aesthetics.

Listen and download in 320kbps mp3:
http://www.netaudio.ru/electrosound/releases/es37/

...and the re-issue (as you had problems with download, sorry):



Georgiy Stefanov from Moscow presents a collection of sharp tasty rhythms and fragile melodies. EPdva is an example of pure electronic music, surprisingly transformed to hip-hop on bonus track, looks like the peculiar exhibit in a world of modern eclectic sound reality.
