This music video ‘Alteya’ from our chamber concert

This music video “Alteya” from our chamber concert at Central House of Artists with Prohor Alekseev (Theremin). This song is named in honour of Althaea – a heroine of ancient Greek mythology. She had been mentioned by Ovid, Hesiod, Homer, Aeschylus. The theremin (also known as the termenvox) is an amazing instrument named after the name of its inventor, Leon Theremin, who invented it in 1920 in Petrograd. In order to play theremin, a musician must have perfect pitch, absolute pitch recognition, because theremin is controlled without physical contact by the performer.

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.

Remake of ‘Love’s Secret Domain’ by Coil

We are happy to present this live video. It is very important for us. It was recorded on October 28, 2016 at Central House of Artists, Moscow, where we performed this remake of “Love’s Secret Domain” by Coil after a long time.

This song is a requiem for John Balance – co-founder of the experimental music group Coil. It was first performed by Theodor bastard at the concert in memory of John Balance on December 23, 2005 in Saint Petersburg. Fedor Svoloch was one of the organizers of this concert. Peter Christopherson played at this concert too, he flew in Saint Petersburg from Thailand. He had listened this song and praised it.

This song was released on the album-tribute …It Just Is (In Memoriam: Jhonn Balance). After some years Peter Christopherson was gone too. None of Coil founders are alive now but their music will remain in our hearts forever.
