Two new Consort releases

Lagging a bit with site updates… two new Consort releases were released on Bandcamp during the recent months. One is based around songs Jaroslav’s grandmother used to sing, and touches on many ideas/places besides that; in a way it’s continuing where “Наладнав; забув” left off. The other one is a peek into a certain mode and quality of playing that we reached around 2012 (and that lasted until 2013), and to allow more focus on that, it has no cuts/edits, just a few longish pieces recorded as played from start to finish.

Live in Chernivtsi, June 30th 2017

Riasni Drova Consort played live in Chernivtsi at the end of June, five years after the first concert there, again organised by Zhan Pobe / Dzestra. We’re quite happy about how it turned out this time. There are some photos from the concert. Also the full audio recording is available on Bandcamp:

Riasni Drova – s/t (2017)

The Riasni Drova duo was “discontinued” around 2014 in favor of the Consort, but several releases are still planned. There are many reasons for this one to be self-titled.

Наладнав; забув (2015)

Наладнав; забув (2015)The most deliberately assembled album of the Ukrainian trio to date. Baroque-era horses grazing among ionized leftovers of retired contemporary musics. Distance without irony. Freeform art going native and learning to incorporate its doubt and suspicion into its freedom. Tangible unprotected things and songs. (Also up on FMA.)

Men, Hyper​-​Inspired Babies, and Their Unforgettable Experiences

New archival release, a Riasni Drova trio/duo split from 2011. The duo thing is basically a long percussion duet, not typical fare for us ooooo-types. The title is for now a working title, and there are going to be more working titles for a while, until Oleg returns from the army and starts renaming it all.
