Last Saturday Dichotomy Engine had a gig at klub Dvoriste. Being the only performer that night was not so fun, I prefer to have gigs with more bands or projects beside DE. It is not a problem for me to perform alone but it is more fun and its just nicer to have someone to drink and have a laugh with while preparing for gig. Also I love to listen to other artists and enjoy others music before or after my performance. People who came to see and listen to DE were ok, majority of them do not know this kind of music but some of them enjoyed which is great. I had some technical problems (my power supply for pedals broke in the middle of the gig) so that was a setback also some tech things were sloppy. Anyway check out these few photos of the gig from klub Dvoriste, Hope this next gig will be much better!

Saturday evening I will have unplanned gig at klub Dvoriste. I've god a phone call from organizer who asked me if I will fill in some other band that declined their gig. So now you will be able to see and hear Dichotomy Engine once more. There is no other performers or bands, so this gig is reserved for DE and DJ Gemini who will play music before and after the show. See you at Dvoriste.

Dichotomy Engine is back to Pelican Int. Social Exchange club at the end of 2015. Maybe you remember last year when I performed with Alen Ilijic at Pelican, this was really awesome gig. You can read and see some photos from that gig here
So this time Dichotomy Engine is performing with a friend - Sifr Shraddha who is main man behind project called Plamen Večnosti. Music which he creates can be described as spiritual ambient, ritual noise. In one word Ascending of Nameless Beauty. Check his work on his facebook page.

Guitar pedal distortion sticker bomb

Somehow I got addicted to sticker bombing after my sticker bomb guitar project (you can see it here). It was really great thing to spend time and gather so many kinds of stickers and every day to stick some of them on parts of the body on my guitar. So guided by this great experience I decided to do same thing to this distortion pedal. So as you can see this was a much smaller project than guitar but nevertheless it came up really nice. I decided to make this pedal all covered in Dichotomy Engine stickers I made earlier - (check them here) and to make it somehow a signature DE pedal :) of course this is just for fun. I love how it turned out in the end. I have some more small things to do with it but 90% of sticker bombing of this guitar pedal is already done. Maybe it needs to be covered with a coat of something, some shit that will keep all this small parts of stickers together. Do you like it?

Dichotomy Engine song Butterfly Tsunami will be used for documentary called AdH Re-encounter (s) ! I was approached by Andres and Griselda from Spain. They asked me if I will give them rights to use my song Butterfly Tsunami for their documentary. Of course I was glad to give them those rights. Now I am waiting for this documentary to be done.
"AdH Re-encounter (s)" is a documentary video dedicated to collecting various initiatives of social, collective and collaborative nature that are being developed at this time in the town of Alcala de Henares (Madrid). Neighborhood, social, self-organized movement for change people.



Here is trailer:

blood red progress album review from terapija.net


I Dichotomy Engine je jedan iz one brojne plejade artista što su zadnje dane 2014. godine okončali s novim izdanjem koje se nije uspjelo na vrijeme poslušati i kataloški utrpati u neki fah najboljih ostvarenja, pa je sasvim opravdano taj proces prebačen u 2015. Ovo je njegov službeno treći pravi album od devet dosadašnjih izdanja (2 EP-ija, 2 kolaboracije, 1 split izdanje, 1 demo, 3 albuma) i tek samo teoretski je nastavak sada već poprilično davnog dugosvirajućeg rada "Transcend" iz 2010. Od tada je ovaj oneman bend znatno napredovao i stilski se umnogome izmjenio odbacivši početni progressive, minimalističku elektroniku, dream-pop i monolitne strukture, te se na ovome poduljem albumu od 70-tak minuta zaputio u post-rock/metal s mnogim medikamentima shoegaza, noisea, ambijentalne glazbe i njegovog manje-više specifikuma - razgrađivanja drone figura na eteričan način.

REVIEW - DICHOTOMY ENGINE - BLOOD RED PROGRESS


Gitara kao osnovno sredstvo potkrijepljena je brojnim pedalama s kojima radi zvučna čudesa nalik na elektronske zvukove, harsh synthove, klavijature, fretless basove i sofisticirane tretmane različitih instrumenata, a programirani ritmovi mnoge mogu staviti u zabludu da su u igri živi bubnjevi. Njegova tehnička metoda razvila se u intrigantnu izvrsnost kakvoće. Tretmani svirke gitare su dotjerani do embivalentne avangardno-istraživačke perfekcije s artističkim šmekom protežući brojne stilske inovacije i prenamjene od shoegaza do black metala (poput ekstremne teme "Road to purgatory") s visokim stupnjem autorskog legitimiteta za kojeg se slobodno može reći da je jedinstven na ovim područjima i ne robuje nikakvim utabanim šablonima, a još manje retrogradnim reciklažama. Sukladno s perfekcijom izraza ponuđena je i duboko zakukuljena instrumentalna fabula koja kao i uvijek u njegovom pristupu ima teške, mračne, morbidne, a ovaj puta i mučne psihološke konotacije sa zagonetnim sadržajem u kome se mogu osjetiti grube fikcijske samoironije filmski dočarane kroz individualni masakr prikazujući ranjavanje, vlastitu smrt, propadanje, pa čak i metaforički sprovod na kome nitko ne tuguje, sve do ezoterično-religijskih sfera poput odlaska u čistilište, iskupljenja grijehova, tj. pretvaranja fizičkog oblika života u duhovni, onaj zagrobni.

Ovakva nimalo lagana ili jednostavna tema o kojoj se religija i mnoge metafizičke strukture bakću milenijima prikazana je kroz vrlo jednostavnu konceptualnu priču (obratite pažnju na naslove kompozicija) uivičenu u maksimalni pesimistički dekor gdje autoru nije bila evidentna želja pojašnjavati detalje, akcije, egzibicionizam, osobne frustracije ili artističko špekuliranje s bahatim šepurenjem o moralu, etici, osobnoj krizi, mistifikacijama simbolike ili nekakvim društveno tegobnim angažmanom, a još ponajmanje o empirijskim ili egzaktnim tezama. Tema je sveopća i postojana, duboka civilizacijsko-religijska i utemeljena na načelima duhovnih vrijednosti života s uvijek prisutnim referencama dogmi i ateističkih predrasuda. Pa ako i niste ljubitelj ovakvih duhovno-ezoteričnih tema, ovaj rad ima i sasvim drugačiji efekt, onaj slušni i percepcijski s nekoliko usklađenih shoegaze/post-rock instrumentala ("Slow decay", "Blood red progress", "Without regret", "Reconcillation"), ali i dva znamenita poduhvata u obliku "Dichotomy Engine is dead" i "I wish you noise here" koji u svojim impozantnim dužinama od po 13 minuta transcedentalno uranjaju u bogati i maštoviti svijet kreacija dronea s de-kompozicijskim elementima. Još jedna osobitost albuma je i tema "Melody in the noise" gdje se D.E. poigrao avangardnim pristupom doslovce kako sam naslov kaže, melodijom sakrivenoj u obilju disonantne buke.

Zaboravi li se bar na čas konceptualna poveznica, album ističe sve rafinirane finese zrelog artista i kompozitora, a vrati li se na tematiku, prikaz ovog djela umnogome donosi cjeloviti spektar velikog dostignuća srpskog undergrounda koji po ničemu, osobito u ovome slučaju još nije došao do sahrane, dapače, ovdje je eruptirao u iznimno produhovljen i jezgrovit sadržaj od glave do pete.

Naslovi: 1.Stab in the back, 2.Dichotomy Engine is dead, 3.Slow decay, 4.Blood red progress, 5.I wish you noise here, 6.Without regret, 7.Melody in the noise, 8.Find me underground, 9.Road to purgatory, 10.Reconciliation, 11.Ars moriendi, 12.Butterfly tsunami (bonus track)

ocjena albuma [1-10]: 8
