More Info

Dirk Serries is an extremely prolific and creative artist who has a huge amount of music composed solo, under his own name or under the name VIDNA OBMANA. In addition to solo recordings, Dirk often collaborated with other artists, thus introducing a new quality to his own music. While implementing the next installments of our informal series, we also published a few of them; for example "Traces" in collaboration with David Lee Myers, or "The Shape of Solitude" with Serge Devadder. This time we present the effect of the Belgian artist's musical collaboration with Phillip B. Klinger, better known as PBK. Gentlemen, in the past, they undertook joint initiatives several times. After all, they have a lot of material in common. We chose the two most expressive of them: "Monument of Empty Colours" and "Depression and Ideal". In both of these materials, many similarities can be found, both in terms of composition and sound. Thanks to this, they give the impression of a coherent, even monolithic whole, built of smaller, expressive parts. That is why they were published on two separate CDs, but enclosed in one digipack, with one graphic design connecting two parts of a larger whole, presenting music created in a specific period of time. Therefore, both discs are filled with tracks characterized by a raw and dark sound, close to the achievements of Cold Meat Industry artists, fitting into the convention of post-industrial dark ambient, which we associate with publications from the Scandinavian label.
In addition, it is worth noting that, especially for the needs of this release, the materials from both sessions have been re-mastered and provided with a completely new graphic design. Edition on two CDs published in a limited edition of 400 copies.
