Dmitriy Krotevich - turntables and no-input mixer.

Dmitriy Krotevich is already presented in the Intonema catalog: he participated in the recording of Wozzeck "Act III: Comics" release. At this time we are releasing his solo album which was recodred using turntables and no-input mixer. Last year Dmitriy released several albums on internet labels that represent him as an electronic musician and composer, while the Intonema release presents him as an improviser expoloring the territory of electroacoustics. In the cover we used the artwork of Mongolian artist Solongo Monkhooroi. The album itself is dedicated to the Mongolian death worm called Olgoi-Khorkhoi - the worm is mentioned in various literature, but no one had ever seen it. The Mongolian death worm, also known as Olgoi-khorkhoi is rumored to live in the Gobi Desert, one of the most inhospitable regions of the planet. It is generally considered a cryptid: an animal whose sightings and reports are disputed or unconfirmed. This freakish creature is said to spray acid, send out electric shocks and explode when threatened.
