Initially this music was not to be the release. When I first tried to write music on a modular synthesizer, it was interesting experience, but it was not balanced melody inside my mind.
But one day I have faced with the cancer. It was a painful time of frustration in a life, of anger at whole world and of deep-deep depression. A tumor was growing with the speed of thought, filling my body with deadly anguish.

This release is not light, joyful melodies, but only - sounds of desperate struggle for life. Music written on modular synthesizers was able to reflect my abiosis, war with myself and hopelessness. The cover of the album is an images of the tumor, which forced me to be on the verge. Today I am grateful to the doctors, to my loved ones and perhaps to something eternal power, for I got a second chance.


Изначально это не должно было быть релизом. Когда я впервые попробовал писать музыку с помощью модульного синтезатора, это было интересно, но я не чувствовал цельности композиции.

Однажды я заболел раком. Опухоль росла, наполняя мое тело смертельной тоской. Насколько это было болезненное время отчаяний и гнева на весь мир не передать сухими словами.
Поэтому Medulla Core совсем не легкий, радостный и светлый альбом, а скорее - это звуки тяжелых мучений и боли, пронзавших всю мою сущность. Музыка, созданная на модульных синтезаторах, смогла выразить абиоз и потерю надежды в борьбе за жизнь. На обложке - изображение опухоли, которая доходчиво объяснила мне, что такое оказаться на грани.
Я благодарен врачам, моим близким и, возможно, какой-то вечной силе за то, что смог получить второй шанс.
