Hey everyone, thanks for being there for DE and be sure to expect much more. I think next release has to bring something different and it will be like that in every way. I will take my time which means new album isn't coming soon. No. This is some kind of creative hiatus. Yes. Also I would like to say that Dichotomy Engine is free for all kinds of gigs and performances so feel free to contact me via my email if you want to see and hear what DE sounds like live. Thanks.

Ima mnogo autora u oblasti elektronsko-analognog glazbenog svijeta koji ovaj format rabe samo u svrhu pukog stilskog iskorištavanja jer postoji mnogo 'rupa' kroz koje se mogu ugurati na konto istraživačke egzotike avangarde, koju ruku na srce, nemaju. Nije mi želja da ih nabrajam, ali spomenuti ću Mike Oldfielda koji se zahvaljujući svojem čuvenom prvijencu "Tubural Bells" još davne 1973. uspio uvaliti Richard Bransonu koji je tada pokretao Virgin Records ostvarivši ogroman multimiljiunski tiraž (album je do 21.stoljeća dosegao tiraž oko 15 miliona kopija). Ili Jean Michel Jarre, Vangelis, pa i već zaboravljeni ambijentalni Kitaro... Elem, svi oni su mahom bili napuhani genijalci svojevremeno nazivani 'najvažnijim skladateljima 20.stoljeća', no njihov doprinos glazbenoj kulturi u širem smislu riječi se sveo na čiste revijalne hvalospjeve komercijalnih medija kojima je upravo bio potreban nenametljiv i lakoglazbeni svjetonazor koji je u suštini prikazivao blijedi smješak neo-klasicizma u spoju s prividnim undergroundom i psihodeličnim putovanjem u transcedentalnu meditaciju za lagodne trenutke koji su bili usmjereni ka razbibrigi opuštanja od svakodnevnih obaveza.

Dražen Đorđević je ovaj svoj rad orijentirao u otprilike sličnom pogledu izjegavši format eksperimenta kojeg je pretočio u suptilne jednostavne pop fazone naglašavajući 'mračnu' fabulu izvedbe. Međutim, koliko god da se ospori kreativnost ovog EP-ija u širokom smislu riječi, autor pokazuje velike predispozicije da se vine u osebujnog pop stvaratelja. Vješto barata sa postulatima pop i underground kulture podjednako zagovarajući orkestralni format sympho, pop i eksperiment pod istu zastavu poput Emerson, Lake & Palmer ili Yes, no dakako u jednoj posve drugačijoj i jednostavnijoj varijanti.

Naoko vrlo lijepi i romantični instrumentalni pasaž s kojim autor šara od teme do teme nije niti približno vezan sa spomenutim autorima koji nisu ulazili u grube i oštre razmirice vremena punka i nezaposlenosti Britanije, te hladnog rata i opasne svjetske krize '70-tih i '80-tih godina u vrijeme Margareth Tacher. Sjećam se da je Mike Oldfield prilikom interviewa 1983. za jugoslavenski Džuboks rekao 'kriza? kakva kriza?' A album mu se zvao "Crisis", s onim patetičnim hitom "Moonlight shadow" kojeg kao klinac ja nisam mogao provariti jer je bio totalno seljački, a ne mogu ga niti dandanas.

Na sreću, Dichotomy Engine kao da je pronašao, možda i nesvijesno, kariku koja je potrebna da se uspostavi ravnoteža u cijelom sklopu razdvojenih svjetonazora između banalnog klasicizma moderne pop umjetnosti i undergrounda, pa je pribjegao instrumentalnom konceptualnom radu koji pomiruje sukobljene tabore kritike i mass-medija. Koristeći vidno umijeće melodijskih struktura i minimalističko stilsko baratanje klavijaturama, laptopom, elektronskim ritmovima i gitarom, svakoj skladbi je pronašao adekvatnu boju i format u kojem se može izraziti kroz vodeću turobnu fabulu koja govori o izgubljenim snovima nakon tragičnog raspada jedne, možda romantične veze. No, romantika je ovdje tek prividni zastor ispred kojeg stoji mračan dio priče vezan uz emocije i jasne slike u kojima se nazire melodramatična opozicija i netrpeljivost dviju zaraćenih strana. A tamo gdje nije bilo pravog temelja za ljubav, stvara se mržnja, zavist i zloba...

Uvodna "Echoes of Forgotten Future (The Timeless One)" će u nekim melodijskim (a i mračnim atmosferskim) sekvencama prisjetiti na Nick Caveov song "A box for Black Paul" sa prvog The Bad Seeds albuma "From Her To Eternity" iz 1984. "Curtains Are Falling (The Hopeless One)" sa plesnim tempom i mračno obojenim zvukovima klavijatura i još nekoliko uzajamno povezanih prigušenih sympho harmonija na blagi industrial-noise način sastavio je dark-pop komad koji se pretvara u vrlo snenu i naoko romantičnu idilu "Birthday Lullaby (The Childish One)" koja započinje zvukovima prigodne muzičke kutije, te se nastavlja neo-klasičnom melodijom klavira koja nosi daljnji tok instrumentalne fabule s pozadinskim asocijativnim arijama u kojima jedna od njih podsjeća na trepetavi zvuk bisernice, dakako u synth varijanti. Ovakav vrlo elegičan, skoro snen ambijentalni ugođaj praznine razbija se sa kratkim dijalogom između muškarca i žene ('I never stop loving... don't!') koji okončava hicem iz revolvera. Skladba ima soundtrack fabulu, te zorno predočava dramatičnu triler scenu koja se odvija. Naredna "Risk of Taking a Risk (The Clueless One)" je potpuno mračan splet sympho-rocka i novovjekovnog dark-wavea s elementima industriala i gitarskim efektima poput strojnice, a ovakve slične harmonijsko - melodijske manire često znaju rabiti i neki progresivni psycho black i doom metal izvođači koji u svojem arsenalu koriste synth i klavijature (primjerice Nachtmystium i dobar dio skandinavskog gothic-metala). Posljednji komad "Destiny Sewers (The Final One)" kao da je adaptiran po nekoj od sympho-metal/pop završnica, no jasno je uočljiva strukturna forma dark-industriala koja okončava skoro pa black-metal sintagmama koji često zna koristiti određene postulate J.S.Bacha koje je Dichotomy Engine u ovom slučaju pretvorio u elektronski zvuk nalik na preparirane crkvene orgulje. Tu se ponovno pojavljuje očajni ženski monolog na engleskom jeziku u kojem se između ostalog kaže 'ništa neće biti bolje'. Sam 'intro' pjesme je vješto samplirana igra od nekoliko vodećih lajt-motiva koji se protežu tokom čitavog materijala (mnogo njih je reproducirano unatraške), te pružaju stanoviti blic podsjetnik radnje odslušanog djela kao završni foršpan poput odjavnog filmskog titla.

Uz ovakav prilično dorađen i cjelovit koncept filmske dramatične triler fabule s nekoliko sofisticiranih detalja, autor je slušatelju prepustio tumačenje pojedinih momenata prema individualnim afinitetima, te se stoga dodiruje i art-rock teritorija pokazavši da je vrlo spretan i inteligentan kreativac koji se umije odhrvati porivu banalnih melodijskih naklapanja i čistih stilizacija bez pokrića poput primjerice navedenog Oldfielda. Dichotomy Engine ovime prije svega pokazuje svoju kompozitorsku vještinu spajanja mnoštva stilskih odrednica u slojevitu glazbenu priču pogodnu za nekoliko varijacija tumačenja njenog sadržaja što donosi onu čar pomnog slušanja i istraživanja. Druga pak strana, ona tehnička, i nije najsretnije realizirana jer bi ovakav sympho materijal trebao iz produkcijskog pogleda zvučati čišće, razgovjetnije i kompaktnije. No, budući da je rad ostvaren na način 'sam svoj majstor' i 'snađi se druže bez studija i producenta' uz vjerojatno zanemarive financije kao kućna analogno-elektronska radinost, ovaj materijal ima svoj potencijal i ne treba ga samo tako olako odbaciti zbog prljavijeg i mutnijeg zvuka.

Sve je tu - kreacija, struktura, priča, sadržaj, koncept, glazba..., te od Dichotomy Engine valja očekivati još tko zna kakva iznenađenja. Netom, upravo nakon završetka recenzije saznajem od samog MiKKe (vlasnik D:S Records) da je Dražen član nekih metal bandova. Aha, tu smo, sada je sve daleko jasnije...

Project Dichotomy Engine already exist for some time on "that other" side of our scene, and also has live performances, as soloist, and collaborative with other projects (eg, Loud Youth Youth Engine with Youth A.D.). Taking into account the previous editions, which are mostly dark electro / industrial-oriented, Decoding the Quasar Signals is the right and the surprise jump in the genre, new, access and qualitative terms. The album is oriented on the themes of quasi-stellar radio waves and their projections through experimental ambient drone sound, with an excellent story, order number and name, and graphic illustration. All in all, the issue is ripe and better achievement, which is quite rare luck in home electronic scene in recent times.



Introduction, an incoming signal (The incoming signal) clearly indicates what the listener can be expected in the next few strips - a deep, scientific drone ambient. Another thing that apparently has a random name, 3C 273, is actually dedicated to the brightest known quasar, and the only that has a simple and steady beat. Sudden holdups illustrate, assume, characteristic of this "loud" quasars. In general, full album combines mystical, constant drone, pulsating repetative patterns, and a mild, motor noise. The last song, The Redshift, carries its conclusion through the said harsh noise and dimension refraction synth's, but I think that could be more graphic. Although from the description may gain the impression that this accentuated ambience constancy slow and frigid, surprisingly is just the contrary - all the songs are interesting in their own way and are part of the story. The whole project was carefully planned and produced, and prepared for meditative, very picturesque and deep slow motion examination of the cosmos.

-------------------------------

Projekat Dichotomy Engine već neko vreme egzistira na "onoj drugoj" strani naše scene, a neretko nastupa uživo, kako solo, tako i kolaborativno sa drugim projektima (npr. Loud Youth Engine sa Youth A.D.). Uzimajući u obzir prethodna izdanja, koja su pretežno  dark electro / industrial orijentisana, Decoding The Quasar Signals predstavlja pravo iznenađenje i skok u žanrovskom, idejnom, pristupnom i kvalitativnom smislu. Album je usresređen na tematiku kvazi-zvezdanih radio talasa i njihovu projekciju kroz eksperimentalniji drone ambient zvuk, upakovan u odlično razrađenu priču, redosled i naziv numera, kao i grafičku ilustraciju. Sve u svemu, u pitanju je zrelo i kvalitetnije ostvarenje, kakvo se prilično retko sreće na domaćoj elektronskoj sceni u poslednje vreme.



  Uvodni, dolazni signal (The Incoming Signal) jasno ukazuje na to šta slušalac može da očekuje u narednih nekoliko traka - duboki, naučni drone ambient. Druga stvar koja naizgled ima nasumičan naziv, 3C 273, je zapravo posvećena najsvetlijem poznatom kvazaru, a jedina je koja ima jednostavan i ravnomeran beat. Iznenadni prepadi oslikavaju, pretpostavljamo, osobinu ovog "glasnog" kvazara. Uopšte, kompletan album kombinuje mistične, konstantne dronove, puslirajuće repetativne pattern-e i blagi, motorni noise. Poslednja stvar, The Redshift, nosi svoj zaključak kroz pomenutu pucketavu buku i dimenziono prelamanje synth-ova, ali sam mišljenja da je mogla  biti slikovitija. Iako se iz opisa možda može steći utisak da je ova naglašena ambientalna konstantnost troma i frigidna, iznenađujuće je baš naprotiv - sve trake su zanimljive na svoj način i predstavljaju deo priče. Ceo projekat je pažljivo smišljen i isproduciran, te pripremljen za meditativno, veoma slikovito i duboko slow motion ispitivanje kosmosa.

Most recent review of Promo CD from Stomping Squad [France]. If you want to read it, go further… and pay a visit to Stomping Squad website http://stompingsquad.ze.cx/frontpage.htm


DICHOTOMY ENGINE - PROMO CD

DICHOTOMY ENGINE is all about atmosphere. This is the kind of Ambient music you're looking for to let your imagination leave the main road to take bypasses. Each track works in the continuity of the previous one under a constant but different doomed melody pervading the whole work, contributing to the creation of a continuous fateful atmosphere.

TEARS OF SPACE CRICKETS PRELUDE works as a nice intro into a disturbing atmosphere and unsettling sounds, opening your mind to a wide range of dark landscapes. Some sounds even achieve to make you feel "trapped" in some way.
Remaining in the same atmospheric core, OUT ON THIS LAND is more rhythmic, with "black metal-like" voice samples rejuvenating the track when it is about to flatten, the atmosphere is thus kept sustained till the end.
THE ANTONIA GRAZA is calmer, slower. This is maybe the least good track, not that it's inconsistent with the others, but it lacks some of its own dynamics.
LAST THREE MINUTES offers a new point of view to explore, some samples used in this one sound like old video games soundtrack but with some inspired feelings with a variety in rhythm and melodies.
The last track, CONSTANT EXTENSION, crowns the four previous tracks: quicker rhythm and melodies make you feel the doomed fate has come nearer. Technically, there's an interesting insertion of some piano keys in this one with a change in rhythm which perfectly matches the title of the track, like you're running to some never-ending somewhere. The addition of some tapping/ tipping sounds gives it some unsettling aspect which contributes to the finality of the whole work.

To conclude, DICHOTOMY ENGINE succeeds in creating a consistent ambient atmosphere. Intro and outro are particularly successful in creating a continuity and leading thread in the whole work which explores variety in sounds. The only bad critique to be made is that the large scope of sounds explored (not in melodies) may make the listener feel a bit at a loss sometimes, despite the guiding melody thread. Anyway, next album is impatiently awaited.
