Petrograd Drone Gathering is an improvisational orchestra of mostly St. Petersburg-based experimental musicians with shifting line-up, often performing at different venues in the city and at open-air events of varying privacy. This recording was made on November 3, 2018 at the Electro-Mechanica XIII festival held at the New Stage of Alexandrinsky Theater in St. Petersburg. This time the line-up of the Drone Gathering featured Alexey Korablin (KorA/M, Moss Reconstruction), Evgeniy Savenko (Lunar Abyss, Mykoriza), M.M. (Kryptogen Rundfunk), Tim Six (Creation VI) and Pavel Dombrovskiy (Uhushuhu), the video-projection was created live by VJ Yuri Elik.

For 50 minutes the musicians explore the Bermuda triangle of the ambient, drone and noise genres. Synthesizers, guitars, voices, acoustic instruments and endless twists of sound effects merge into a single vibrating stream. The flow of music constantly changes its properties: sometimes the atmosphere is getting rarefied, creating lacunae of subtle harmonies and melodic lines, sometimes it builds up layers and acquires density turning into noisy rolling waves… Timeless and non-conceptual music for open minds.

Петроградское Гудельное Собрание – импровизационный оркестр петербургских (и не только) экспериментальных музыкантов с подвижным составом, нередко выступающий на разных площадках города и на опен-эйрах разной степени приватности. Эта запись была сделана 3 ноября 2018 г. на фестивале "Электро-Механика XIII", прошедшем на Новой Сцене Александринского Театра в Санкт-Петербурге. В этот раз в состав Гудельного Собрания вошли Алексей Кораблин (KorA/M, Реконструкция Мха), Евгений Савенко (Lunar Abyss, Mykoriza), М.М. (Kryptogen Rundfunk), Tim Six (Creation VI) и Павел Домбровский (Ухушуху), видеопроекцию на концерте создавал VJ Юрий Элик.

На протяжении 50-ти минут музыканты исследуют бермудский треугольник жанров эмбиент, дроун и нойз. Синтезаторы, гитары, голоса, акустические инструменты и бесконечные завихрения звуковых эффектов сливаются в единый вибрирующий поток. Течение музыки постоянно меняет свои свойства: атмосфера то разряжается, образуя лакуны из тонких созвучий и мелодических линий, то наращивает слои и уплотняется, превращаясь в шумные накатывающие волны... Вневременная и внеконцептуальная музыка для открытых умов.
