Album Notes
Pal Zsertvoly and Magyar ensemble is a project of Moscow-born, Budapest-based multi-instrumentalist artist Alexey Zelensky.
Zelensky is known for his eclectic style in music. Bringing a lot of 'cinematic' sound design ideas on recordings and using bits of anything from baroque to trash electronic, he paints unique and vivid soundscapes.

The album opens with a village table dance; dark and gloomy, it grows out of owls flying about. 'Okah' (Ока) is like an erotically-charged folk tale. And 'The Harvest' (Урожай), that explodes with synthesisers immediately after, is a crescendo of craziness. 'On a Bewinged Sunday' (Крылатым воскресеньем) and 'An Afterword on Moscow and Death' (Послесловие о Москве и смерти) play with an idea of an 'over-heard' sound: lo-fi, documentary, something you might come across in the subway. 'Kulikovo Pole' (Куликово поле) is an epic that crosses music field all the way to a domain if radio drama – taking elegy, punk and rock on board.

Dmitri Prigov is undoubtably one of the most significant Russian artists of the last third of 20th century. Not only his poetical output is astonishing – Prigov wrote over 35000 of poems over 40 years as part of his absurdist art project, mimicking communist party plans to produce things in very large quantities in an absurdly short time – but Prigov also is a world-wide known visual artist and sculptor. Prigov-suite is written around the axis of 13 poems from different periods. Although very different, the poems share the same image: of a man, contemplating on heroic existence in the context of unheroic times.
