Papa Srapa's "Joyful Breeze" is relaxing drone with beautiful crystalline tones and detuned synth seeming to struggle hard to be pretty. ::vtol::'s "Ramzan" is engaging and wonderful. i'm very taken by the textures it presents. broken DIY aesthetic. as recommended on the page, playing both tracks at once is a new experience. lovely lovely lovely!
::vtol:: is the project of Dmitry Morozov, Moscow media artist, musician and engineer of strange sounding mechanisms. In the mid 00s Dmitry started to use actively his DIY and Circuit Bent instruments for his own music projects, as well as making instruments for other musicians and media artists. He is the first batch producer of music and video synthesizers at the post-Soviet area. Besides making music and instruments, Dmitry creates audiovisual art installations and promotes Circuit Bending and DIY Electronics in Russia by means of lectures and workshops.
Papa Srapa is a contemporary visionary, analog synths shaman and sound artist. His name is Eduard Srapionov. His DIY music instruments have no analogues in this world and are constantly changing for better. He calls himself no composer, neither musician nor inventor. He doesn't use many words, calls himself Papa Srapa and his music — "Experimental electronic". He lives and works in Rostov-on-Don.
