Our new song – an ancient Russian lullaby in our interpretation.

Our new song – an ancient Russian lullaby in our interpretation. We will play it at our upcoming concerts and maybe we will include it in the next album. Lullabies were used as a protection against evil, danger, or disease – if you see something bad, horrible in a dream then you don’t see it in reality. The ancient lullabies lyrics were magic and scaring, it was their power. Photo by Մշակութային վերածնունդ Օրորոց (2)

On September 29 the early experimental Theodor Bastard’s album BossaNova_Trip will be re-released on CD

We have great news for you! On September 29 the early experimental Theodor Bastard’s album BossaNova_Trip will be re-released on CD. This electronic album with no vocal was recorded by Fedor Svoloch in 2002, some years before the main members joined the band. The track “PU’s_Tota” was born exactly within this album. It was the initial electronic version, two years later it was heavily modified and became the first main hit of the band. The bonus track is that vocal version of “PU’s_Tota”, where that very well-known melody and text were first performed by Yana Veva. This is a limited edition of 300 copies in digisleeve with two cards.

Theodor Bastard have finished the whole soundtrack for the game Life is Feudal: MMO

“The music of the Early Middle ages — this is where modern music originates from, after all, and especially the period of Northern early medieval music that we know so little about. Take any folk music — it’s like a breath of antiquity that has reached us, contemporary people. You simply can’t not get inspired by this, it’s like archeology or paleontology. Full of mysteries and never ending sources of inspiration! For instance, take various folk music harmonies, instruments with various sound and tunings.

In this day and age, everything is standardized and factory made — all those same model plastic instruments that people use in a modern music band — it hasn’t always been like this. Medieval world is a cluster of various ideas and musical concepts starting from instrument set and ending with harmony and melody ideas. It was a period of wonder, and the music itself had a different meaning.” — Theodor Bastard

Full concert at Central House of Artists 2015

Finally, we have heroically finished the edition of our chamber concert at Central House of Artists, 2015. We published some fragments from it earlier.

Sometimes we felt we will never complete it. Twelve cameras, forty audio tracks, terabytes of data!

This is the first Theodor Bastard’s concert completely taken with multi-camera setup and recorded in multitrack, then mixed in the studio.

It was a unique experience when our fans who didn’t know each other before it, were working together as camera operators. And it was the great experience for Fedor (band’s guitarist) in audio mixing.

We are happy. Many thanks to everyone who worked with us!

Collaboration with Ice-Pick Lodge

Today the famous game development studio Ice-Pick Lodge have published the very interesting article about the collaboration between Ice-Pick Lodge and Theodor Bastard. Soon we will see the game Pathologic 2 by Ice-Pick Lodge. Theodor Bastard have created 12 songs for this game!
Pathologic 2 is a dark and dreamlike story in which three very different doctors try to defeat an unvanquishable plague in the unusual steppe town that’s being crippled by this unfathomable disease.
Yana and Fedor worked with pleasure and with particular attention to the details on how this unique game should sound in its new guise.

Below you can see the game trailer with the new song “Darkness” written exclusively for this game. The track uses the famous phrase “Hello darkness, my old friend” from the song by Simon & Garfunkel originally written in 1964.
