This work dedicated to the Symbols of Creative Rotation. A retrospective journey by the bird through smells of melting herb songs and contemplations of the mysteries of Life. They are flowed away by Water, from the Ice to the boundless lakes dancing in mosses. Following to the Forge of Earth, walking the dense forests, winds and marshes, meeting the Heart Guardians. All the cycles of nature follow each other, Fire goes to Water and Earth goes to Heaven. Cosmos swaddle the birds flying toward dawn. All invocations in the name of Life. Many praising voices of people and animals merged into a rhythm that glorify the Natural Order, eternal and endless. Field recorgings, woodwinds, strings, percussions and drums, voices, tape noises and electronics was used in this work.They're all merged into a single timeless canvas. Spirit of every living thing awakening runs through it. An atmosphere of Ritual crossed with cosmic primordial Drone Ambient. Standing in awe of Majesty and experience of true Beauty. Tradition, vibrations for a New Cycle.
Запись совместного действа Lunar Abyss Deus Organum+Hattifnatter & Kshatriy & Neznamo & Vresnit при участии VJ Юрий Элика от 4 ноября 2010 года в клубе ГЭЗ-21, Санкт-Петербург. Шестичастный экстракт сеанса групповой аудио-визуальной связи чудесного дня убывающей луны. В этот вечер не было отдельных выступлений проектов, участники слились в едином действии, озвучивая акт сонастройки. Полевые записи, голоса, гитары, синтезаторы, духовые инструменты и обширные электронные устройства в руках явлений сознания плетут плотную Drone Ambient пелену. Связь, дыхание игры, поток иллюзий, очищающая прогулка по осеннему лесу, призванная соединить все противоположенности!
This is my third album... simply... from heart to heart.
Any reviewers referred my previous works to space dark ambient and the new album also has a cosmogonic feel to its musical images. This time everything takes place in utterly deep space, in the immense emptiness that contains the whole world.
Swinging on slow waves which shimmer in all possible colours we contemplate monumental galactic metamorphoses. Slowly unwinding are the tight spirals of synthesizer drone, rhythmic patterns pulsate and emotional melodies are cut with rare flashes of voice samples. Smoothly flows the sound, charged with energy, transmitting the experience of self-awareness from the musician to the listener... from heart to heart.

Time is the Enemy released by Unexplained Sounds Group is the latest collaboration between Sonologyst & Kshatriy. This 5-track album features a mature sound where stylistic developments are on the moderate and gradual side. In Unaltered Mind we find three themes running concurrently: The “Divine Mind” in the metaphysical sense, the Buddhist motif of an “Uncluttered Mind” and the cognitive interpretation of the mind as a body in constant exposure to internal and external stimuli. The Venus Smile shares its name and ethos with a JG Ballard short story published in a science fiction journal of the 50’s about an ornamental object that starts generating uncontrollable sounds. Self-Luminosity is a clear metaphor for what is known in Buddhist tradition as a “Luminous Mind”. Chronopolis borrows thematic references from Piotr Kamler’s film of the same name from 1983 where the character’s existence is not related to time. The last track, Time is the Enemy, is the most lyrical piece of the album and showcases Sonologyst & Kshatriy at their musical best.
In summary, this is an accomplished work with the recurrent theme of time as its main focus and a seamlessly shared vision by two artists in control of their medium.

Sonologyst is the Raffaele Pezzella solo project from Italy. It's based on the perpetual experiment in sound, looking back to early experimentation of the Fifties and Sixties, forwarding to the future possibilities of electronic and electro-acoustic instruments, with a special attention to the relationships between music and science, music and other art forms, including literature and modern mythologies. All Sonologyst’s pieces are almost completely improvised. That’s why he calls his music “experimental”, meaning that the result is unpredictable. His music oscillates between the scientific sonic documentary and the psychedelic abstraction. As Sonologyst, Raffaele Pezzella, is the curator of Unexplained Sounds Group, a multimedia platform created to investigate the current underground experimental worldwide music scene.
Kshatriy is solo musical project founded on June 19, 2004 in Vsevolozhsk, Russia by Bulychev Sergey. The first step was a live gig in ESG-21. The name of the project reflects only memories of ancient society in which spiritual values were no less important than material ones. The music of 'Kshatriy' is based on drone style with ambient and noise elements, with no certain frames and accept any necessary sound sources...with delicate touch.
Samantabhadra name means "Noble in Everything He Does", "Always Lovely". His body symbolizes the immensity of space as the nature of mind. Samantabhadra in union with his wife Samantabhadri (Yab-Yum union) symbolizes the original purity of the emptiness as the nature of mind. Their union is the unity of all in the non-duality, it is also a symbol of the indissoluble unity of bliss and emptiness.
This music absolutely free of any duality concepts.
