KRYPTOGEN RUNDFUNK 'Tales from...'/ 'Live in Gdansk' CD
KRYPTOGEN RUNDFUNK 'Tales from the Mirrored Spaces'/ 'Live in Gdansk' 2CD
"Tales from the Mirrored Spaces" is the third full-length album by the Russian project Kryptogen Rundfunk, released by Zoharum after "22.SZ" (2004, Mechanoise Labs), "Liquid Circuits" (2016, ZHELEZOBETON) and a number of various split-releases, collaborations and compilations. The project was founded in 2002 in St. Petersburg by Artyom (M.M.), who has been active in the Russian underground scene since the early 00-s: recording music, playing numerous live gigs in Russia and Europe and releasing quite a lot of experimental and post-industrial music from Russian and international artists on his own labels ZHELEZOBETON and Muzyka Voln. Developing his sound from previous works, on this album Kryptogen Rundfunk uses more acoustic instruments (mouth harp, bowed guitar, metal plate, singing bowl, voice), yet stays true to his favourite array of synthesizers, effect units and of course his trademark shortwave radio noises and transmission interceptions. With all this set-up he creates a dynamic sonic universe varying from ritualistic ambiental textures to heavy electronics, abstract multi-layered drones and sharp gritty noises.
Both versions contain beautiful artwork by the St. Petersburg-based graphic artist Kirill Rozhkov.
Special edition contains 2CD, the newest regular album 'Tales from the Mirrored Spaces' and bonus 'Live in Gdańsk'.
Edtion limited to 100 copies.
