S A D + Bred Blondie (Russia)
Vladislav Dobrovolski, Vasily Stepanov (Duet S A D) and Gleb Glonti (Bred Blondie) solve problems of aesthetic and acoustic perception in audio recording. They leave the results of their experiments to chance, combining the ensuing sounds with inspiration. The absence of any boundaries and fundamental ideas allows them to avoid a conflict between the concept and the work, between theory and practice.
Brinstar is a project of the sound artist, musician and designer Mikhail Myasoedov which he began in 2006. To create the required musical image, Mikhail uses a whole galaxy of instruments that he constantly changes, but with two constant ones: a guitar and a modular synthesizer. They are augmented by various shamanic whistles, Irish harps, harmonicas and penny trumpets, as well as everything that squeaks and jingles. The effect is a mixture of chaotic — at time, infernal — noise, structural rhythmic compositions and tranquil, relaxed ambient melodies.
