Artist: MONOSOV, ILYA
Title: Architectures on Air and Other Works
Format: CD
Label: Elevator Bath
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Elevator Bath proudly presents the first full-length CD from Ilya Monosov. Architectures on Air and Other Works is a challenging collection of recordings, perfectly summarizing the various interests of this inventive sound artist. The range of these works is tremendous: From harsh intensity to gorgeous drone to virtual silence, concluding with the deeply affecting title track. Monosov recorded three of the six pieces presented here as solo works, while the other half are collaborations. Two of these collaborative tracks feature conceptual sound artist Civyiu Kkliu (Banned Productions) and the third includes the work of veteran electronic composer Larry Polansky (Frog Peak). Architectures on Air and Other Works displays the fruits of several years worth of activity, and though each piece is distinct in concept and execution, the album offers a solid block of organic sound, compelling from beginning to end. In addition to the stunning audio work, this enhanced CD also features two QuickTime movie files of Monosovs sound performances (about 18 minutes of material)." - Elevator Bath.

Title: Vinyl Document #1
Format: LP
Label: Elevator Bath
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Music performed by 2 organ glitches, songs by broken music boxes (+ added circuits), a remix of my 2002 catalog (Music For Everyone) by my friend Andrew Deutsch: All broken music -- music breaking away from the surreal and the intellectual in order to gain physical characteristics -- I think music can be found in just about anything, just like everything can be said to have a musical quality. You can use sound to power a small motor that will be used in an autonomous sound piece or you can use it for a light bulb and play light songs for few green plants or maybe you can simply listen to the sound and observe things changing all around you -- I think that for me it is such small joys that can have a lasting effect on things and it is this perspective from which I continue to work." - Ilya Monosov.

Title: Sailor Man
Format: LP
Label: Holy Mountain
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Utterances into a dictophone from a backdoor man hiding in the closet as the husband arrives home. The tales plod along in whispers, accompanied by defined guitar interplay, punctuated piano and snappy drums. Nearly every accent of guitar seems present. Fragile flamenco plucks, fuzz-to-the-front fumblings onto smooth lyrics of a detective attempting to resolve his own crimes. Vocals and acoustic guitar were recorded by GREG WEEKS. The arrangements, instrumentation and production were lovingly handled by JONATHAN WILSON. ILYA MONOSOV is a member of SHINING PATH and MONOSOV/SWIRNOFF DUO. While those musics were often meant to be visceral and joyous, Sailor Man presents whispers from one person to another, ruminative meditations on loss of places and people. Includes digital download coupon." -Holy Mountain
