Experiments in the field of alpha and beta waves and model programming. Synchronization with a brain, records of human biorhythms … In an initial and final track for the first time there is Yana Vevy’s voice – noise and whisper. Machine rhythms of telephone networks, ambient and minimalism.

The existential background of music reflecting a condition of the young man, thrown into severe life after parental guardianship, use of ethnic percussion and some other live sounds along with electronic, the maturity of the author combining skill and richness of ideas, magnificent sense of style and the verified structure do an album by the real masterpiece. Despite external restraint of music, it isn’t emotionally dry and excessively pathos. In comparison with “8 ways to achieve the lady” music, on the one hand, is more orthodox as at it there are rhythms and melody rudiments though don’t play an essential role in art impression, on the other hand, is more original thanks to the polistilichnost, abundance of original finds and pithiness. So, compositions “theorem” and the “opening” going in an album one after another, strike with unity of used musical means and shades of a state of consciousness given by them. If “theorem” is a composition pressing on mentality with the confused structure, stumbling rhythms and the suffering sighs, perfectly transferring the atmosphere of hard intellectual work, the “opening” which is very close to “theorem” on the general sounding, considerably differs in a form: this composition is very minimalist, absolutely linear on structure and possesses the positive power expressing an enlightenment of consciousness. One more advantage of this music is its purity: in it there is nothing, besides, that is required for an adequate embodiment of composer finds and contents expression. On the other hand, this music it is impossible to accuse and of a haughty elitism: existence of dancing rhythms in many compositions facilitates perception of an album as a whole, thus without breaking stylistic integrity. The track of “radio Bristol” is executed in lower style, than other compositions; probably, exactly thanks to it it got to “Radio record” air though in a context of the whole album it is perceived as a checkpoint. The album Agorafobia comes to an end with the real shock under the name “end of summer” when tragic piano арпеджио at last breaks through the amorphous, viscous atmosphere. In spite of the fact that style of collective strongly changed since then, this album – already integral part of the Theodor Bastard project, a polistilichny hybrid etnik and electronic engineers. It sounds really experimentally, instead of simply carries on traditions of styles which it is considered to be vanguard and progressive regardless of level of specific representatives.
