Hypnoz - Breath of Earth

Hypnoz - Breath of EarthRussia is the country of a dream. The verge between reality and irrational is so subtle that it's already impossible to distinguish your dreams from that, happening outside in the streets. Listening to the album Breath of Earth by the project Hypnoz, you feel deeply how far these compositions can bring you... They easily lead you to strange places, though always familiar and close to you. Very powerful and significant release, and I can hardly use the notion 'track' for its compositions. Better to call these tracks 'composition' or maybe 'playing free music', open consciousness and improvisation. Electronical music is often called 'dead', though in this album all the records become alive. And in general, this music is not less full of life and energetic, than instrumental compositions. Magic moment, time of fairy tales, huge spaces outside the cramped grey urban cities - that the motherland of psychedelic music, its cradle.
Unexpected running start, and jumping into the world of obscurity. Jerk through space and time when only few seconds are left before the entropy catches and swallows the listener – that's my description of the feelings I experienced after listening to these records. The album starts with the composition "Rise", than slowly speeds up to its center culmination and disappears in the last coda "Earth". The CD has already stopped, though you still hear those sounds, such a feeling will chase you after each time you listen to Breath of Earth. By the way, the title of the album perfectly corresponds to its sounding. If you leave your tight cells of everyday life and listen attentively to the surrounding sounds, earth's breathing on the frosty morning, you'll be able to feel the obscure material bringing together all living beings.
Russian ambient school really exists, though it's the myth from the past. To make sure, you can take this album of limited edition and deepen into the imaginary world it creates.
