The story of Vladimir Kurashov, a young photographer from Moscow.
In 2003 his left eye was seriously injured in a street fight. After multiple surgeries, the young man’s normal vision still did not return. Vladimir focused on photography to distract himself from the trauma. A few years later, in the summer of 2012, the Moscow based gallery “Glaz” presented the photographer’s first public exhibition “Poetics of the locality”.
Director, Camera, Editor: Maxim Tomash • Shot on 16mm film • Moscow 2013.
From Manchester producers Synkro & Indigo comes Akkord‘s new single “Folded Edge”.
Taken from the self-titled debut album • Released on Houndstooth Records.
“Akkord began as a shadowy collective with an espoused passion for mathematics and sacred geometry, crafting intelligent and beautifully oppressive electronic music. Eventually revealed as a collaboration between experienced Mancunian bass producers Synkro and Indigo, ‘Akkord’ blurs the lines between junglist revivalism, smoky ambience, and suctioned dub, with a consistently engaging pulse linking the styles. Carefully arranged and achieving maximum impact on a proper soundsystem, Akkord have turned in an ominous and daring debut LP.”

We feel there is a huge similarity between the Avant-Garde/Free Jazz movement of the 50’s & 60’s & the beat movement of Today. As both movements attempted to break down, extend & alter the conventions of their original genres (Jazz & Hip Hop) & were never afraid to experiment & improvise to create something that wasn’t accepted commercially at the time.
This compilation is a dedication to Saturn born composer, bandleader, piano and synthesizer player, poet and philosopher ~ Sun Ra.
※ Tracklist »
About Sun Ra ~ Claiming that he was of the “Angel Race” and not from Earth, but from Saturn, Sun Ra developed a complex persona using “cosmic” philosophies and lyrical poetry that made him a pioneer of afrofuturism, free jazz. & electronic music. Sun Ra & his Arkestra’s discography is one of the largest in music history and he is often regarded as one of the prolific recording artists of the 20th century. After departing Earth in 1993 Sun Ra legacy in music continues to influence artists worldwide and has changed the world of music as we know it. We hope that through this compilation we can introduce a new generation to his music and philosophies..
