I don´t know at all If BARDOSENETICCUBE, I mean Igor Potsukailo, is an spiritual or religious project with the goal of spread just these ideas. I am nothing to do with religion or something similar, but when I listen to BARDOSENETICCUBE, I thinking about the outer space, the life origin or even the existence (or not) of God. A thing is clear, this recording induce our mind not to agressive noise or stressed industrial rhythms but the opposite. Calm, reflexion, thoughts... Despite I know Igor Potsukailo has made industrial and even noise music, in this "Reag" you will find the opposite extreme pole. A lot of meditative music doesn’t have to be elaborate to be effective. Indeed the genre that arguably reaches deepest into the human consciousness–drone–is rooted deeply in a simplistic consistency. Simultaneously, single chords which start out as recognizable can shift into a multitude of transcendental entities. In this manner, Igor Potsukailo performs his spiritual communication. Beautiful, natural landscapes are painted with his warm synthesizer. The cloud of airy tones lead the mind to a deeper understanding of something beyond. Yet, an eerie sort of presence can be felt that slowly creeps into that peaceful aura. For every record Grassow releases, there’s another tone or emotion, and for every release there are a million visions that the music can guide the listener towards. Grassow can work his distorted samples into any atmosphere. Each track has infinite ways to interpretarion, maybe you percives something "dark" or "sinister", another listener can to percive "industrial sounds"... me no at all, a part just small noises and tiny industrial echoes, the general atmosphere is calm, quiet and reflexive. I repeat, the perfect image... is the outer space.

BARDOSENETICCUBE  is one of the oldest St. Petersburg-based industrial projects and it was formed in 1997 by Igor Potsukailo and Sergey Matveev (now plays in Intershum). The most precise definition of their music is surrealism. According to the description given by A. Breton, surrealism is “pure psychic automatism willing to express the real functioning of the reflection either orally or written, or in any other form. Dictation of mind without any control from the intellect, outside of any aesthetic of moral considerations”. During it’s lifetime the project has released more than 20 albums in Russia and abroad, took part in various compilations and festivals (SKIF, Free Flight, etc.). BARDOSENETICCUBE was involved in several sound installations (“Emplacement”, “Contact with the Microworld” together with multimedia project 2012). The project’s live shows are usually supported by video which is considered the integral part of the performance. This is always improvisation in which both listeners and acoustic characteristics of the space are involved. The live sound stylistically varies from techno-shamanic trance to the baffling harsh-noise. Application of the original sonic “system” and psychoacoustic apparatus allows the band to achieve the unbelievably wide frequency range, from infralow to ultrahigh. Big concert experience of project members and usage of protective devices guarantees the safety of sound equipment.

VIDNA OBMANA




































VIDNA OBMANA + PBK
Year:  1991
Country:  Belgium , US
City:  Bruxelles , Chicago
Artist:  Dirk Serries , Phillip B. Klingler
Label:  N D ‎
Format:  cassette
Tracks:  8
Time: 40 min.
Genre:  electronic
Style:     Ambient       Noise
























Belgian composer Dirk Serries chose the name Vidna Obmana for his musical persona because it means "optical illusion." in Serbian language. Years hence, Vidna Obmana still found that the name gave him a feeling of freedom to place his music first, before his own personality and philosophy. Like water, Vidna Obmana has continued to change form over his musical career. As a self-taught electronic musician, Vidna Obmana explored different musical areas before discovering the techniques of looping and shaping harmonies, merging layers of sound and minimizing the configurations to a few notes. His style of atmospheric music creates trance-like states in listeners who understand the language of sound. The release of a free track on Various - May The Plague Be With You {remiXes} in May 2009 marks the official end of using this moniker for further releases.

"[not] lost"

City:  Nijmegen
Artist:  Frans de Waard
Label:  Audiobot
Format:  4 x CD
Tracks:  34
Time:  4 hours
Genre:  electronic
Style:     Experimental       Noise



























ACCORDING TO THE ARTIST : "(...)When I was still doing Bake Records (1999-2001) I released the first volume of '[Not] Lost', which I hoped to be a series of CDRs by KAPOTTE MUZIEK of works that weren't released or unavailable for some time. But then I left Staalplaat and stopped Bake Records. Audibot from Belgium asked me to compile a longer version so I came up with this 4 CDR set. I scanned the liner notes and covers for each of them, which come as a pdf. I also corrected a mistake. Track 14 is not called 'Ruis' as indicated on the cover, but it's 'Studie Voor Tas (2)', as indicated on the original Bake Records release. This piece didn't appear in the original notes for the Audiobot release.  Also I put in different versions for 'Draw A Line' and 'Draw A Circle'. I didn't like the ones in the original release, and instead use the ones that came straight from the original DAT masters. Included are early works with Howard Stelzer, a failed attempt to cross breed KAPOTTE MUZIEK and Goem and unsolicited demo's to RRRecords / Pure and Relapse (...)".
