10. Intelligent Noise Monday Alexander Zaitsev Live Remix
During the last ten years this moderately active figure of the St. Petersburg underground has been engaged in acoustic research, almost invisible for most people but passionate in its cosmologic nature. The result of these experiments turned into a fusion of seemingly incompatible genres of modern music – techno and improvised noise. However in the interpretation of Porch Nap this paradoxical combination sounds quite natural.
The album features selected tracks of Porch Nap dated 2007-2017, most of which were reworked in recent years. For five compositions additional parts were recorded by honored figures of the Russian experimental scene: Fedor Svolotch, Alexei Borisov, Kryptogen Rundfunk, Brompton's Cocktail, as well as by the famous American noise musician Phillip Klingler aka PBK. And the final track "Intelligent Noise Monday" was remixed live by Alexander Zaitsev, known as a member of the band EU (¨ëî÷íûå Èãðóøêè).
Porch Nap's creative method is rooted in deep minimalism and almost complete disregard of musical setup in its traditional meaning. The basis of almost all compositions is built on live recordings of an analogue feedback generator transformed by the author’s algorithms of digital processing. Peculiar frequency combinations and extreme binaural effects obtained in a random manner during improvisations will arouse interest of the most inquisitive music lovers. Recommended to listen in headphones. Not recommended to listen before sleep.

Regular edition includes: CD in digisleeve with two cards. Limited to 175 copies.
Special edition includes: CD in digisleeve with two cards, bonus mini-CD-R in cardboard sleeve with an alternative version of the title track Porch Nap feat Fedor Svolotch "Antidot" and two additional compositions, Porch Nap "Ordo Ordinans" audio-tape (reissue of the 2001 album), all packed in white rag bag with silk-screen printing. Limited to 35 copies.

THEODOR BASTARD. OIKOUMENE - Theo Records, 2012
New album of Theodor Bastard. The title refers to an ancient Greek notion, designating the inhabited or "civilized" sections of our planet, in other words those where mankind has left its mark - for better or worse. That global sweep is certainly echoed in the list of contributors, since our Russian artists are joined here by representatives of British, Zulu, Indian, and French-African traditions. Consequently, the list of instruments employed - and their home nations - is even longer. >>
COH. IIRON - Editions Mego (Austria), 2011
Coming 11 years after IRON, which also tackled the sound of rock with alarming results, the new album features not only recent guitar tracks recorded at Music Research Centre at York University, but also recordings made during Soviet era Russia, which refer to Pavlov's underground music activities in the early 80-ies. IIRON is a powerful, well executed electronic rock record, with just a dash a humour to keep it from becoming pompous, as so much of that kind of music can be sometimes. >>

HYBRYDS. SOUNDTRACK FOR THE ANTWERP ZOO AQUARIUM - Zoharum (Poland), 2011
The reissue of a long-deleted classic album by this legendary Belgian project. It was created especially for the 150th anniversary of the Antwerp Zoo. Music composed by Sandy and Hermann (of Ah-Cama Sotz) was woven in between the sounds of dolphins, killer whales and the noise of the underwater world. The Zoo director wrote the following in the preface: "Soundtrack For The Antwerp Zoo Aquarium" is a musical journey of the similar stature as "20 000 Leagues Under the Sea" by Julius Verne. >>
