This music project from the multi-talented, Vladyslav Tsarenko from Prague shows instrumental music at it's pinnacle and truly embraces the elements needed to inject emotions and portray his inspiration, solely through his use and interpretation of the music. The main inspirations being events taking place in the world during our time, and the classic novel by George Orwell, '1984'..
The first song to grace our ears is, "War Is Peace", which opens on a very ambient melancholic note, before really coming to life with far reaching guitar work, and leads us wonderfully on to the intense new single for, "Freedom Is Slavery", which also has a very powerful video to accompany it. It manages to encompass the context superbly through the emotive use of the instruments and effects; especially the way it progresses throughout..this is a mighty track which needs to be heard!
"Ignorance Is Strength" has a sombre yet hopeful vibe to it, which is elegantly captured. Towards the end it gets darker and more complex, making for a very thought provoking number.."Kindness Is Weakness", appropriately perhaps has an intricate and fragile air to it, showing a 'softer' side to the largely serious broody music - it still possesses a tragic feel to it,which the instrumental bit towards the end emphasises.
The deep and meaningful, "Naked Body, Hidden Soul", keeps things on a par with the current standard, being very intelligible and evoking emotion, something which should be commended, without the need or use of lyrics - yet it sounds so fluent and effortless!
So we reach the end of this enlightening musical journey with the fitting, "The Curtain Is Closing", (Prologue) which is somewhat light hearted, and offers the listener time to reflect and admire this show or 'Threatre' we have been invited to enjoy!..
From the start I was intrigued and from thereon out, listened intently to every note! It is quite something when you can find instrumental music that moves you so much, and gets it's desired effect through so prominently, which is what
Vladyslav has done wonderfully! The end result is an intense intelligible and far reaching meaningful must hear EP!
