Post-Soviet harsh noise, like lessons of "civil defense" ("grazhdanskaya oborona") during the times of the Cold War, where kids were taught how to quickly put on gas masks and get into a bomb shelter at the signal of air attack. Psychedelic like all Tarkovsky movies together, brutal like devices made by Soviet tank-tractor factories. Wild retrograde sound in vein of Throbbing Gristle of 70ies, archive samples, bass noise and feedbacks, detached depressive female and aggressive male voices, reading and shouting existential texts, inexpected intervention of guitar music in vein of Ildjarn.
