Following the release in 2003 of his first full length work (“Kniga Skazok”, also on Ad Noiseam), Andrey Kiritchenko presents here is second album, which crowns the progress and incessant activity of this Kharkov, Ukraine based musician. Having collaborated with such acts as Scanner, Kim Cascone, or Kotra and played basically each and every music festival in eastern Europe (as well as the Transmediale, Garage and Information Wants To Be Free festivals in Germany), this artist has become the spearheading figure of the Ukrainian electronic music scene, and one of the best regarded composer from the former eastern block.

If “Kniga Skazok” was Andrey Kiritchenko’s interpretation of traditional fairy tales, “Interplays, in between” presents the bridge between the two sonic fields dear to this artist. On the one hand, this album features the precise clicks, sharp glitch and touching melodies that can be found on his earlier recording, and, on the other hand, we hear here the very subtle use of field recordings, distorted voices and unusual use of strings instruments which have been witnessed by this musician’s live audience.
Subtility and emotion are the key words of “Interplays, in between”. Andrey Kiritchenko demonstrates here how electronic and acoustic music can meet and mix without loosing their particularities. Emotional music without easy pop kitschness, gritty frequencies made human.
Andrey Kiritchenko shows with “Interplays, in between” how emotional, though original, his music is and present 10 charming tracks of frequencies, beats & bits that confirm his status of confirmed value of nowadays’ electronic composer.
