The second release on Tukuringra, “Inclinations” is devoted to ecological issues of human activity. Extinction of animals, climatic anomalies, armed conflicts, crises, volcanism, different strange omens – all this moved me to write this album. The third track, “Black Snow”, is based on a recent event in my native town, when to struggle against ice-slick, local administration made a decision to spill slag on the roads. In a flash our town became black, as if it endured bombing, or use of some other weapon. Besides harm to physical health, this event much influenced the psychic state of the citizens – there is nothing pleasant in observing muddy, sullen streets. However, in the other hand, exactly this very environment inspires to write dark ambient music. The technical side of the album is represented by guitar sounds, flutes and xylophone.
