LAWRENCE ENGLISH "Meditation On Light"
In 2009 Simon Whetham was commissioned by painter Kathryn Thomas to compose a surround sound composition and installation to accompany her Darkspace project, a series of paintings inspired by the infinity of the cosmos, which was exhibited as part of her biggest solo exhibition to date, 'Lightyears'... The composition was also mixed down to a stereo version, mastered by Scanner, and released on Simon's own label, Traceable Echoes, to be available to visitors of the exhibition. Many other artists heard the work and gave praise to this departure from Simon's work up until that point, as for the first time he had composed with much more musical elements, and an idea emerged. Simon was already planning his own reworking of the raw materials of 'Lightyears', as he felt the brief was very restrictive, and wanted to hear the results of using the same material without these constraints. He also offered the opportunity to all artists who responded positively to the work to produce their own characteristic interpretation of the composition. Here are the results; a common thread is evident, but very individual voices are heard, leading you on an immersive, engaging journey...

CISFINITUM. MONOCHROME - Zhelezobeton / Aquarellist / KultFront, 2019
The 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. >>

OLE LUKKOYE. DYATLY - Trail Records (US), 2015
In 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'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
Gianni 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. >>
