2017 CDr ltd. 88
Trance-inducing catacomb Death Industrial Ambient filled with samples from the history of the NSDAP. More meditative and ritualistic version of the music brought to the world by Soldnergeist and Drape Excrement. This is one of those Microspora works most completely reflecting the essence of the "underground culture" of the old school noise scene of St. Petersburg.

Unexpected continuation of our series of collaborations made during journeys and trips came from Siberia, where Arseny Litvin and Igor Kuptsov (Vyazkiy Sharab) recorded a post-industrial ritual performance on the ruins of an abandoned Soviet missile unit located deep in taiga. Old School Industrial Avantgarde with the use of metal percussion, flute, mouth harp, radionoise, metallophone, singing, etc., recorded on analogue dictaphone. Very pleasant and meditative work resembling early Einsturzende Neubauten, ZGA, industrial performances of Psychic TV in mid-80-ies. Hand-numbered sleeve + 4 full-colour photo inserts reproducing avantgarde film photos made during the performance.

New word in the history of the European Power Electronics. 12 sermons-infusions dedicated to fate, death, cosmos and the slavery of neurotic ignorance in which most of people dwell. Fears, labyrinths and traps of verbal thinking, a wish to seem better than you are, political dirt, frustration, personal pride and insane Dostoevskiy's fixations - these are the walls of Asvlmjenok, a concentration camp for the consciousness in which people have immured themselves. And around that there is only the infinity of space which many can see only in a dream... in a dream from which you don't want to wake up. Extremely powerfull full-range sound, brutal vocals and obscure sample. Like Genocide Organ or Sektion B, but better. Vinyl case, handmade cover, insert.

A kind of continuation of the >o<mutt project. This time Mare Desiderii (from the creator of Omutt, Dime[drone], Galaxy The Incubator, Syvary, Karjalan Tazavalla, etc.) is creatively rethinking the classical album by YAO 91404 D "Flakes of Black Ash" (2003). As a result we have a completely independent full-fledged work in vein of Old-School Industrial / Drone Ambient, somewhere between Vivenza, Vetrophonia and Maeror Tri with solid heavy gloomy drone and looped industrial clatter. The album is covered with patina of the industrial era of the beginning of the 20th century, imbued with the mysterious mood, very sustained, stylish and interesting. Recommended!

Power Electronics act Organoid from Barnaul, Western Siberia was created in 2006 as a result of dedication and author's love to the American and Italian school of Noise and Power Electronics.

The long-awaited first full-length album of Dadhikra, recorded during five years. Vedic post-industrial canvas inspired by the books of Bal Gangadhar Tilak "The Arctic Home in the Vedas" and Rahul Sankrityayan "Volga Se Ganga". The album filled with dances of dawns around the North Pole, cold breath of the Arctic Ocean, glimmer of midnight Arctic sun, mysterious atmosphere of the white night, pierced by the bird voices, singing of Vedic rishi and crackles of a ritual fire, Rigveda hymns, exploding with the assertive pace of nomads roaming through taiga, finding an unexpected parallel in the march of the Indian National Army of Subhas Chandra Bose. Long way from ritual post-industrial images of the Arctic Motherland gone under ice, through the taiga noise and drone, leading to a hot as a tropic day track "Jambudvipa", inaugurating the coming of Aryans to India. The album is closed by the short track "Dadhikra", shining in a drone among the patter of the sun stallion Dadhikra - as a sonic autograph from the project. Half DVD-box, cover made of hand-painted paper.

Head-spinning psychoactive Retroelectronic Noise played on antique electro organs, radionoise, resonances and ingenuous effects, sort of acid-rock from 60-ies turned inside out and mixed with psychotropic pills. Second track - not really harsh in sound but no less marginal combination of lo-fi field recordings and crooked electronic quasi-baroque. Sleeve made of technical paper from 1966.
