Pavel Ambiont - Radio Plato Guest List #001

Кастрычнік 3, 2018

This mix for Radio Plato contains mostly unreleased tracks made in the recent years and is based on the live sets I’ve played this year at Euthanasia and Foundamental Network parties in Minsk.

There are flavours of various musics that have inspired me over the years – Dub, Techno, Dubstep, House, Psy-Trance, IDM – but most of all it’s utopian ‘sci-fi’ Electro. Some of the tracks will be out on my next album ‘Zorapłaŭ’ this Winter, others (under Force Carriers name) were made for a project about the Belarusian artist Jazep Drazdovič and will be out later.

I’m grateful to DJ Kreep from Abjekt / Dark Side of Techno (Hrodna) for the impulse to do this mix.

Лекцыя: Музыка — паміж утопіяй і дыстопіяй (27.01.18)

Студзень 25, 2018

“Якую ролю музыка грае ў розных візіях ідэальнага грамадства — ад Платона і Томаса Мора да Берліоза і Скінэра? Як уяўляюць сацыяльныя функцыі музыкі фантасты і анты-ўтапісты? Як палітычныя і творчыя рухі апошняга стагоддзя грунтуюць свае ўтапічныя сусветы на рытме і музыцы? Дзе мяжа паміж гармоніяй і тыраніяй?”
