Artemiy Artemiev + Peter Frohmader - Space Icon

Artist: Artemiy Artemiev + Peter Frohmader
P: 2000
This is the second Frohmader collaboration in less than a year, teaming up this time with Russian composer Artemiy Artemiev, a musician who has created some interesting space music in his own right. While Richard Pinhas and Frohmader's "Fossil Culture" did indeed sound like a merger of the two musicians's styles, "Space Icon" is more than just the sum of its parts, creating music rather unlike each musician's personal styles. In fact, the long opening cut is sort of all over the map, beginning with electronics and guitar, similar in approach to some "Ashra", and developing nicely. The album's 'subtitle,' "Electroacoustic", doesn't actually come much into play until after the 19 minute title track, and once it does, you become bathed in exotic worlds of sound, including what sounds like microtonals, effected environmental recordings or samplings, and lots of sure-handed synthesis. It's truly inventive music, the final 23-minute "Cosmic Jungle" ending the whole in a completely alien environment. A really nice piece indeed.

Artemiy Artemiev - 57 Minutes to Silence

Artist: Artemiy Artemiev & De Laurenti
P: 2001
"57 Minutes to Silence" took almost two years to complete. It ranks among Artemiev's
more experimental music and of the four collaborative projects he simultaneously released in mid-2002 it certainly is the most challenging. Nothing is predictable during this hour of music. Both artists supply ethereal electronics and ghostly samples. Most of the album is spent in
abstract electronic gestures, sculpted with artistry, slightly menacing. The title of "Internal Static Bursts" describes the quieter passages very well. The 15-minute "Transmission from the Coalfire" is the strongest piece, a puzzling chunk of electroacoustics, well-paced and attention-grabbing. "Recalibration" leaves us hanging to microscopic sonic threads. Sadly, in "Receiver Through the Nebula" Artemiev comes back to his old self with sweeping synths and sparse programmed drums, dragging the tail end of the album closer to his CDs with Phillip B. Klingler and Peter Frohmader.

Artemiy Artemiev - Dreams in Moving Space

Artist: Artemiy Artemiev & Phillip B. Klinger
P: 2000
A really interesting meeting that of these two creators of universes of sound. The American Phillip B. Klinger, better known by his artistic name PBK, started an interesting career in the musical avantgarde of the late eighties. His music, between Ambient and Minimalism, soon attracted a remarkable attention given the eminently sinister character that PBK achieved without resorting to typically bleak sound effects. That extraordinary and so unusual skills are joined in this album with the talent that Russian composer Artemiy Artemiev has to create complex, dark atmospheres of sound. Explorers of fathomless musical abysses, both artists offer us a work of electronic music of a deeply experimental nature, with passages which could be labelled within Ambient and others nearer to the structures of Concrete Music.

Artemiy Artemiev - Five Mystery Tales of Asia

Artist: Artemiy Artemiev
P:
1998
This album dates back to 1998 and is an evocative journey across the vast Asian continent. There are five lengthy tracks: "Hong Kong - 01.07.1997", "Flying Eagle", "Journey Under the Great China Wall", "Mysteries of the Ming Dynasties", and "One Night on the Khangay Mountain". The overlying impression I get from all the tracks is of movement - political, social and human. The sound is huge, layer upon layer of densely textured synths, samples of Mongolian, Chinese and Japanese instruments, percussion and Buddhist chants and all sorts of weirdness. The music has a grandeur that matches Kitaro's great classic album, "Kojiki", and like that it builds a mind picture of a region of the world positively bulging with humanity among a clash of differing cultures. From a musician whose albums all set high standards this is one of his very best.

Artemiy Artemiev - Forgotten Themes

Artist: Artemiy Artemiev
P: 2000
Russian electronic musician Artemiy Artemiev returns with a collection of tracks (presumably unreleased) recorded between 1988-2000.
"Forgotten Themes" mainly consists of pleasant, rhythmic electronic compositions. If you enjoy the soundtrack music of Tangerine Dream then you will most definitely enjoy this CD. Standout tracks in my opinion are the moody spatial electronics of "Space Distortion" and the gloomy electronics-possessing grandeur of "Realm of Shadows". The sombre violin music on this composition makes the piece outstanding.

Artemiy Artemiev - Mysticism of Sound

Artist: Artemiy Artemiev
P: 1997
"Mysticism Of Sound" is full of gorgeous atmospheric space drones. Powerful imagery for this listener, of actually being in the darkest corners of space. "Pictures Of I. Bosch & P. Bruegel" is an 18 minute space drone which develops very slowly, like a ship that's lost all power floating through space, led on its seemingly random course by an unseen force. Part I of the title track includes more space drones, but far more sounds and what seems like crowds of ghostly voices that ramble and groan without ever forming words. The atmosphere is dark and even a bit frightening. The intensity increases on "Cataclysms Of The XX Century" and the sounds consist of both machine-shop industrial clangs, bangs, and drones on the one hand, and shrill screams on the other. And Part II of the title track is the most experimental of the four cuts on this CD. Lots of freakiness and found sounds...

Artemiy Artemiev - Point of Intersection

Artist: Artemiy Artemiev
P: 1997
On his third release Artemiy Artemiev tries to find the point of intersection between two styles of music: electronic and electroacoustic and two cultures: eastern and western. Five lengthy tracks will show us just where the point of intersection actually lies. All of the five compositions on this CD consist of slow moving ambient electronics with an undercurrent to them. "Down by the Footsteps Leading to the Abyss" particularly stands out, being the longest track at 21.40. This track also includes neoclassical passages and the sampled mournful singing of The Deacons Of The Virgin Qamishi (Syrian Orthodox Church) put to great effect. Brilliant piece of music. "The Point of Intersection" (18.59) also includes various eastern instrumentation amongst the slow moving ambient electronics. It's strangely meditative. Marvelous piece of music. In fact all 5 tracks are wonderfully captivating listening. Another excellent release from Artemiy Artemiev which I can thoroughly recommend.

Artemiy Artemiev - The Warning

Artist: Artemiy Artemiev
P: 1997
"The Warning" contains Artemievs' oldest recordings (1993 - Gorky Film Studio) and features guests Dimitriy Kutergin (of "Nochnoy Prospekt") on violin and Michael Jakushev on oboe. The 11 tracks on the 73' CD (including a real "Overture", "Finale" and two covers of Claudio Monteverdi) seem to form the soundtrack to some strange, dark and moody film. Most of his music could be defined as 'modem classical on keyboards', played with all the intensity and dark shadows of the traditional Russian spirit.
