CRUCI-FICTION

Thematic album. 1993-1994. Musicians: Vladimír Hirsch - keyboards, sampler, bass, vocal, Josef Škoda - drums, Michal Kureš - guitar. Conceptual album, that is the peak of whole work of the band. Steel sound, enriched by sampled industrial noises and sampler´s bass, with an attempt on original compositional principles and Slavic influences in melodic processes. The group tries here to take up its own ethnic roots and classical music, draft from these traditions, that is apparent also in compositional structure and construction (e.g. “Love Song Analysis”). That orientation is supported by using of sampled classical instruments and the way of composition of the part of drums.

ALL OF US WILL FALL AWAY

Thematic album. 1995 - 1996. Musicians: Vladimír Hirsch - keyboards, sampler, vocal, Martina Sanollová - vocal, Miroslav Ondrýsek - guitar, Karel Janků - bass guitar; participatione: Tomáš Sedláček - drums programming. Conceptual project of last configuration of the group, synthetising and extrapolating the finding of previous works, which evolves with an attempt on melody of Slavic type, agressive polyphony and maybe too much complicated construction of enhanced epic tracks. The result of studio work was - thanks to bad communication with sound-master and different attitudes of members of the band - some disapointing, above all from genteel final sound characteristics. This fact was also one of the major causes of successive break-out of the formation.
