2018 CDr ltd. 35

The Russian radionoise scene that was resounding in old times hasn't pleased its fans with interesting works for a long time. And now - a new discovery in this genre, and what a discovery it is! The full-length album of the new project by the legendary Den Noiser (Mare Desiderii, Omutt, Morbid Fetish and many more) is not just a recorded piece of meditative radio ether, but an attempt of collecting a full-fledged interesting album comprised of diverse dynamic tracks with various moods, without using any manipulations with an equalizer or other means of processing. An attempt that is 200% successful! A truly fascinating and enthralling disc proving that radionoise is not only fixations, but also Creativity in the highest sense of this word. Next to the title of each track the author indicated the frequencies of the fixations - as an additional experience you can check out how the things are going there now. Black & white A5 cover.

Laskovoe Echo / -O- - Death of Underwater Jungle / Baltiki Ystera

>o< / Laskovoe Echo - Death of Underwater Jungle / Baltiki Ystera

OPERPRODUKT136

2017 CDr ltd. 25

The world's most polluted sea, Baltic, as a morbid uterus with its cervix bandaged by a grandiose tumor of militaristic and industrial northern capital of the agonizing empire. The bottom of Baltic sea is covered by unprocessed wastes of mortal activity of the metropolises and wrecks from naval scrambles of imperialist predators, the underwater jungle of its seaweeds is dead. Contaminated ill uterus as a cause for female insanity - mind please, the term "hysteria" came from ancient Greek "hystera", and this term means "rabies of uterus" literally. Baltic region relentlessly supplies us with sad examples of female insanity - the authors were inspired by Ingmar Bergman's "Persona", where pictures of women's madness are set against the background of pines and stones of Baltic shore, and also by the story of lesbian relationship between famous Tove Jansson and her partner, female graphic artist Tuulikki Pietilä on Klovharu island in the Gulf of Finland. The cold and dampness of Baltic lie in wait for a weak female consciousness not only on sea shores... insanity hides in the shadows between the ancient ferns and in creaking of the dilapidated houses of village old women, spreads over the stone trenches of the cold ungracious cities and creeps into dull rooms and lonely beds. All these complex schizo-associative series are raised in the conceptual split of two projects from Ingria. The split of so intertwined and mutually intergrown tracks that it has already turned into an integral conceptual album, just like the ones by the classics of the 70s prog-rock. Creating these analog pieces Laskovoe Echo (ex-Pri Doline Mak) used a lot of devices, closed circuits, radio-stalking, modulation of super low frequencies, synthesizer soup and, at the end of its part (war in the underwater jungle) - rhythmic patterns from glued magnetic tapes. Precise formulations of the entire spectrum of sound, mixing on tape devices, each sound is extracted manually without using the squalid technologies of the future and digital crap. >o< presents one, almost half an hour track (quiet or noisy in its diverse parts), the only source of sound for which was a pack of mica plates produced by the Leningrad mica factory. The result was a harmonious combination of the two projects in a fairly similar sound and frequency range of the ritual-psychedelic Drone Noise Ambient. The digital version of the split is released by Operator Produkzion in a limited edition in double-sided handnumbered covers of the format slightly smaller than A5.

2017 CDr ltd. 88

Trance-inducing catacomb Death Industrial Ambient filled with samples from the history of the NSDAP.

Asvlmjenok - Amor Fati

OPERPRODUKT133

2016 2xCDr ltd. 152

New word in the history of the European Power Electronics. 12 sermons-infusions dedicated to fate, death, cosmos and the slavery of neurotic ignorance in which most of people dwell. Fears, labyrinths and traps of verbal thinking, a wish to seem better than you are, political dirt, frustration, personal pride and insane Dostoevskiy's fixations - these are the walls of Asvlmjenok, a concentration camp for the consciousness in which people have immured themselves. And around that there is only the infinity of space which many can see only in a dream... in a dream from which you don't want to wake up. Extremely powerfull full-range sound, brutal vocals and obscure sample. Like Genocide Organ or Sektion B, but better. Vinyl case, handmade cover, insert.

Mare Desiderii meets YAO 91404 D - Chernosnezhye

OPERPRODUKT132

2016 CDr ltd. 86

A kind of continuation of the >o<mutt project. This time Mare Desiderii (from the creator of Omutt, Dime[drone], Galaxy The Incubator, Syvary, Karjalan Tazavalla, etc.) is creatively rethinking the classical album by YAO 91404 D "Flakes of Black Ash" (2003). As a result we have a completely independent full-fledged work in vein of Old-School Industrial / Drone Ambient, somewhere between Vivenza, Vetrophonia and Maeror Tri with solid heavy gloomy drone and looped industrial clatter. The album is covered with patina of the industrial era of the beginning of the 20th century, imbued with the mysterious mood, very sustained, stylish and interesting. Recommended!

Dadhikra - The Arctic Home

OPERPRODUKT123

2015 CDr ltd. 120

The long-awaited first full-length album of Dadhikra, recorded during five years. Vedic post-industrial canvas inspired by the books of Bal Gangadhar Tilak "The Arctic Home in the Vedas" and Rahul Sankrityayan "Volga Se Ganga". The album filled with dances of dawns around the North Pole, cold breath of the Arctic Ocean, glimmer of midnight Arctic sun, mysterious atmosphere of the white night, pierced by the bird voices, singing of Vedic rishi and crackles of a ritual fire, Rigveda hymns, exploding with the assertive pace of nomads roaming through taiga, finding an unexpected parallel in the march of the Indian National Army of Subhas Chandra Bose. Long way from ritual post-industrial images of the Arctic Motherland gone under ice, through the taiga noise and drone, leading to a hot as a tropic day track "Jambudvipa", inaugurating the coming of Aryans to India. The album is closed by the short track "Dadhikra", shining in a drone among the patter of the sun stallion Dadhikra - as a sonic autograph from the project. Half DVD-box, cover made of hand-painted paper.
