[Tuk 31] Kirill Platonkin – Lunatic Circus

LunaticCircus

A psychedelic freak sideshow – faces of sound dementia! It’s a result of long recording and mixing work, which began back in 2012 – I used shaving machines, heat radiators, water-whistles, clocks, heavy iron gates, guitars, gusli, voices, field recordings, and so on. Special thanks to Vsevolod Botvinnik (Timoneus), Halgrath, and Viktoria Andreychuk, to Chema Alonso, Mark Dymond, to my cat Kasya and everybody.

[Tuk 30] Kirill Platonkin – Ephemeron

Ephemeron-Cover

Ephemeron is a result of a long period of searching of new sound. I used a lot of instruments ans sound sources – musical instruments, household devices, kitchen utensils, chest expanders, wrenches, springs, tube closing plugs, voice, and so on. “A Shiny Dream For Sasha” is a track, devoted to a girl, who was my friend, classmate and neighbour back in 1998, and who died because of medical error, and she stayed in my mind as a little girl of 11-12 years old. The tracks don’t have numeration, in the case of this album it’s for a listener to decide, which order he comsiders the best, furthermore, if you dislike any track you can throw it away as soon as you wish. I don’t think, it is a completed album, it is more like a compilation of different musical attempts.

[Tuk 26] Phosphene Transmitter – Phosphene Transmitter

Phosphene Transmitter is a collaboration between Kirill Platonkin and Vsevolod Botvinnik (Timoneus) – some of the track are a common work, and some of them were recorded solely. This album is constructed by tracks of different sounding – from quiet drones, hard drones, through some surreal psychedelic conglomerations, to spoken word. We used a lot of means to produce sound – voice, field recordings, sounds of a bicycle, tubes, synthetic sounds and what not. Phosphene Transmitter is a very free form of music expression – we tried our best to diversify our work.

[Tuk 25] Kirill Platonkin – Panspermia

This long-form one-track album is represented by delay monster, revealing the essence of Panspermia – one of the possible ways of life’s emerging on Earth. Here I return to the point, I started with – to experimental surreal sonic substances, produced by guitar, which were recorded almost 7 years ago.
