Спина спешит представить новый сольный альбом Ильи Белорукова, известного, в первую очередь, своими изысканиями по препарированию саксофона. Но на этой кассете вы не услышите ни шипения мундштука, ни скрежета раструба, ни пощелкивания клавиш - на смену отстраненному редукционистскому звучанию приходит холодный синтезаторный саунд и монотонный ритм. Подстать музыке и оформление от Анастасии Цайдер: на бесконечно серых почти эшеровских лестницах и переходах то возникает, то исчезает образ Ильи.

Spina!rec is in a hurry to introduce Ilia Belorukov's new solo album, who known, first of all, for his work with prepared saxophone. However, you will hear neither hiss of mouthpiece nor rattle of bell nor clicks of keys - the reductionist sound was changed by cold synth noises and monotonic rhythms. The artwork that was made by Anastasia Tsayder matches music very well: Ilia's image arises and disappears on the infinitely gray almost Escher's stairs.
