07.07.2022. “Война / Vojna” – a special anti-war compilation of Russian experimental & noise artists protesting against Putin’s invasion in Ukraine is published by the Danish label TOPOS. The compilation was curated by Jacob Kirkegaard and Artyom Kryptogen and is released as limited edition CDs, cassettes and digital download.

“This is a collective manifesto by Russian artists from the underground experimental & noise scene, speaking up against Putin’s invasion of Ukraine in 2022. We are incredibly hurt by these actions and ashamed of the villainous crimes committed by our country. While we don’t have the power to stop the war, we can use our music to express our disgust for what is happening and the pain we feel for our brothers and sisters in Ukraine. This music is our message to them and to the world.”

“This recording was made at the “PoluDrëma” (“semi-slumber”) party, which took place on the night of November 26th-27th, 2021 at the Red Eyes Moscow club. From midnight until morning the St. Petersburg musicians played in sequence with artists from Moscow, for eight hours weaving a seamless fabric of oneiric sound for an audience which was either sleeping or drinking tea. These recordings were later edited in studio and condensed in two 45-minute pieces, showcasing all versatility of experimental ambient music.”
