death of underwater jungle / βαλτικη ὑστέρα – split

by laskovoe echo / >o<



The world's most polluted sea, Baltic, as a morbid uterus with its cervix bandaged by a grandiose tumor of militaristic and industrial northern capital of the agonizing empire. The bottom of Baltic sea is covered by unprocessed wastes of mortal activity of the metropolises and wrecks from naval scrambles of imperialist predators, the underwater jungle of its seaweeds is dead. Contaminated ill uterus as a cause for female insanity - mind please, the term "hysteria" came from ancient Greek "hystera", and this term means "rabies of uterus" literally. Baltic region relentlessly supplies us with sad examples of female insanity - the authors were inspired by Ingmar Bergman's "Persona", where pictures of women's madness are set against the background of pines and stones of Baltic shore, and also by the story of lesbian relationship between famous Tove Jansson and her partner, female graphic artist Tuulikki Pietilä on Klovharu island in the Gulf of Finland. The cold and dampness of Baltic lie in wait for a weak female consciousness not only on sea shores... insanity hides in the shadows between the ancient ferns and in creaking of the dilapidated houses of village old women, spreads over the stone trenches of the cold ungracious cities and creeps into dull rooms and lonely beds. All these complex schizo-associative series are raised in the conceptual split of two projects from Ingria. The split of so intertwined and mutually intergrown tracks that it has already turned into an integral conceptual album, just like the ones by the classics of the 70s prog-rock. Creating these analog pieces Laskovoe Echo (ex-Pri Doline Mak) used a lot of devices, closed circuits, radio-stalking, modulation of super low frequencies, synthesizer soup and, at the end of its part (war in the underwater jungle) - rhythmic patterns from glued magnetic tapes. Precise formulations of the entire spectrum of sound, mixing on tape devices, each sound is extracted manually without using the squalid technologies of the future and digital crap. >o< presents one, almost half an hour track (quiet or noisy in its diverse parts), the only source of sound for which was a pack of mica plates produced by the Leningrad mica factory. The result was a harmonious combination of the two projects in a fairly similar sound and frequency range of the ritual-psychedelic Drone Noise Ambient. The digital version of the split is released by Operator Produkzion in a limited edition of 25 copies in double-sided handnumbered covers of the format slightly smaller than A5.
The cassette version of the split is released by YAOP in a limited edition of 25 copies with handmade covers. All information is handwritten.
