Combining two works into one, completing the picture requires consistency in style over time, yet needs constant development and integration into the context of something that musician is making right at the moment.
How weird it wouldn't be to name with such aesthetic (using semicolon, such idea was inspired by certain Japanese series of literary/visual works), it makes sense, since it's two narratives, combined into one to create something complex, drawing parallels from the language and the usage of semicolon around the world.
On our way back to Russia, we stumbled upon our friend, Dmitry Solinance, with his first ever release, and, as well, his debut album on our label. Passionate about such genres as ambient, drone, garage, IDM, experimental, avant-garde, Dmitry created something that represents him as a ever-developing person, a culmination of the work that represents his own growth over time and his evolving music taste.
Aptly named “Abiocoen;Exodus”, this album is the blend of two parts/separate works joined as complete experience, first story is about everything non-living as a part of our life, whether it’s soil, water, different physical waves, mechanics or everything else surrounding us, while the second one is about the movement of people and their own reflection on life. For example, in the first part, Fang, Xerox and Zap, represent bones/blood/organs, mechanisms/electronics, electricity/voltage itself, while Rid, Somberness, Start Guitar may represent waste/poison/something unnecessary, gloom/mist/fog/depressive state, strings/soft, elastic materials; second part represents the cycle of life, according to Dmitry: tiredness, relief, denial/acceptance and movement to something else, maybe something grand or something that they feel comfortable and happy with.
This narrative, that is merged with Russian melancholic sound, creates an intimate and beautiful landscape, full of things to explore and notice.
As always, thank you for staying with us on our endless journey.
