THN087 >> UNIT 21 - SEPTEMBER-OCTOBER
      [16.05.2006 | FRAGILE SOVIET AMBIENT FACTORY DUBS]

Another newcomer on Thinner is Unit 21 from Russia. Stanislav 
Vdovin was born and grew up in Nizhny Novgorod where he studied 
piano at music school for 8 years. At the age of 13 he tried 
himself in composition, using a standalone digital synthesizer 
Ensoniq TS-10. Three years later, in 2001, he went into 
experiments with music software, and finally founded Unit 21 
in 2003. The main creative object for Unit 21 is to find a 
balance between unexpressed-by-words emotionality, delicate 
sound design and traditional structures of electronic music. 

The idea behind the September-October EP is in sampling old 
(primarily early 80s) Soviet manufactured vinyl records (pop 
and jazz), then combining processed samples with 4/4 static 
techno. The song titles directly refer to the production dates 
as the tracks were composed in a period of joint performances 
with Sleepy Town Manufacture in Moscow (Peace Technologies 
event: Plastilin club), Izhevsk and Nizhny Novgorod. The result 
is a half-live, half-studio LP ‘No Traces’, promising to be 
released in a near future. It opens with an ambient edition 
of the ‘September, 26th’ track.

Distinctive crackling vinyl sounds and lots of hisses and pops 
swirl around the wide pianos of citated 'September, 26th'. 
Although the song feels light in it's architecture the piano 
gives it a melancholic touch. Incorporated is a piano part, 
performed by Stanislav himself in 2004. 

A very nice opposite to the first track is 'September 10th', 
which turns out much more static and earthy with the marching 
bassdrum in the lo-frequencey area, giving it an industrial
touch. The flute samples add a lot of unusual atmosphere and 
the clock-like noises at the end is a self-recorded (pitched 
down) piano pedal sound. 

On the virtual flip Unit 21 continues the sonorous atmospheres
with 'October 16th', which is built on monotonous beats and
slowly evolving pads and rest sounds of the piano. As the
song progresses with the hats fading in and the enlightment of
the pads you can almost spot some ethereal sunlight. 

The last song 'October 18th' is the most blurry of the four
songs with it's cathedral-filling pads and dusty particles 
that become visible in the sunlight. We hope you enjoy this 
grey aural cinemascope coming out of Nizhny Novgorod, Russia.
