THEODOR BASTARD

In the beginning there was one man whose name was Theodor Bastard. In 1996 Theodor discovered wide range of the computer technologies. A boom of an obtrusive ambient, industrial noises and voices of the ulterior creatures - these were in the base of THEODOR's sound. Technologies have changed and the method has changed as well. Having gone through the analogue experiments music of THEODOR has transformed to something indigestible, that can't be easily defined. The title THEODOR BASTARD appeared in 1998. Original troupe has been changed radically. Up to 1999 the band began to make the concerts. Now THEODOR has the proper equipment and has been performing on various stages in Saint-Petersburg and Moscow for two years. Now band is playing mixture of acid-gospel - as it was showed at the festival SKIF-5 - and goa-trip plus microwave plus gothic hip-hop - as it was showed at the festival "Svobodny polet".

Theodor Bastard

The significant part of the conception of THEODOR BASTARD is the polystylism at the unconscious level (Schtokhausen). The inventor of this term - Alfred Shnitke - underlined that "polystylism is the mixture of the external and inner elements, where the external is the influences of styles, glims and echoes of the world, and the inner is the personal style". THEODOR BASTARD musical technology includes wide range of methods with the various semiotic functions: citation, allusion, stylisation, adaptation, mixing.

Variety of the works is rooted in this conception. THEODOR BASTARD use noise ambient with ethno-rock, adding some other cultural traditions and influences - including pop-music and authentic folk. THEODOR BASTARD is planned to be not just a musical band but special kind of theatre. Our activity in art has always been based on the idea of a parity of the national cultures, convergence of styles and synthesis of languages. THEODOR BASTARD as an independent art unit believes in the ability of art to change the world. We believe in power of music, good and justice. So we dedicate our music to all those victims of the greedy corporations, the victims of the American aggression, killed children of Iraq, victims of violence and power of the cynical business dealers who have their deals with blood and death.

Yat-Kha - We Will Never DieThe eighth studio album of the Tuvan band Yat-Kha, which focuses on the voice of the charismatic leader of the group Albert Kuvezin, is accompanied by his long-time friend and colleague Sholban Mongush.

In the spring of 2020, several additional tracks were recorded in Abakan (Khakassia).

CISFINITUM. MONOCHROME - Zhelezobeton / Aquarellist / KultFront, 2019
Cisfinitum - MonochromeThe album is dedicated to Dmitry Vasilyev, a musical educator, publisher, and ascetic. Initially, composer Evgeny Voronovsky conceived "Monochrome" as a futuristic mass of "high resolution" - an alchemical fusion of angelic chorales and dub-techno pulsations. The news of Vasilyev's tragic death caught the author of the recording rendering the final mix, redefining the meaning and purpose of the work that lasted for a whole year. "Monochrome" became a funeral service for a close friend, a man whose role for independent electronic music in Russia cannot be overestimated. >>

ALLERSEELEN. DUNKELGRAUE LIEDER - Aorta / Indiestate Distribution (Austria / Russia), 2017
Allerseelen - Dunkelgraue LiederThe new album Allerseelen is a radically revised version of the album "Sturmlieder", originally released in 1996.

OLE LUKKOYE. DYATLY - Trail Records (US), 2015
Ole Lukkoye - DyatlyIn April 2015, the St. Petersburg band Ole Lukkoye released a new album "Dyatly", published by the American label Trail Records. The album was recorded for two years at different Russian studios. After the material was recorded, the musicians came up with the idea to leave everything as it is and, as far as possible, avoid revision. As a result, only some vocal parts and percussion were recorded before the final mixing. The tracklist of the album consists of five tracks, and the transitions between them are made so smoothly that it seems as if you are listening to one endless song. >>

MACHINEFABRIEK. DUBBELTJES - Zoharum (Poland), 2014
Machinefabriek - DubbeltjesMachinefabriek's music combines elements of drone ambient, glitch, field recordings, minimalism and post-classical avant-garde. This territory is successfully exploited by artists such as Fennesz, Tim Hecker, Oren Ambarchi and Stars Of The Lid. Unlike industrial music, Machinefabriek's improvisations are always very friendly, warm, and conducive to a leisurely exploration of a strange, surreal world. The new album is a compilation of 12 rare tracks released on low-volume 7-inch, cassettes and CD-R in the period from 2008 to 2013. >>

COLLOQUIO. L'ENTRATA - L'USCITA - Eibon Records (Italy), 2013
Colloquio  L'Entrata - L'UscitaGianni Pedretti, a resident of Bologna, organized Colloquio in the early 90s with the intention of exploring musical territories where advanced electronics intersect with the Italian song tradition. The new album continues to expand the sound horizons. In it, melancholic Italian ballads performed by Pedretti are successfully combined with cold minimalistic post-digital arrangements. Several guest musicians took part in the recording of the album, performing the parts of saxophone, flute, double bass and drums. >>
