DREAM MONSTERS EXORCISM

Thematic album, 1999. Musicians : Vladimír Hirsch - synthesizers, drums, samples, programming. First version of the album, later completely remade and released under civil name with the title "Dreams Of Awakening". This work does not sound fully like methodical entertainment, mainly because of its unifying, more serious thought conception. It is grounded in a certain specific boundary situation in the author’s life, at first adapted in writing, later adapted musically. The music schame is basically rock, combined with sampled loops and recitation in melodramatic form with the athmospere of anxiety thanks also to expressive poetry.

ARSENICA / LESS THAN NOTHING

Two similar works, conjoint in one thematic album for synthesizers, samples, radio recordings; 1995-96. Musicians: Vladimír Hirsch - synthesizers, drums, samples, programming. Although by genre it is characterised as subpop, being rather rock formula. The work is opposed to the media politics and principles of directed intoxication of the population. It makes so using hyperbole and irony, radio broadcasts instead of vocals, often rhythmically tied with the musical base. The compositions have the form of songs and are all based on loops of simpler keyboard or guitar riffs, inserted into a specific ambience.
