My music video for Neurotic Wreck – “Funeral of Roses” will be on display in the Cesar Chavez Student Center Art Gallery exhibition Re/Action, opening 4/21 from 5pm-8pm. The exhibition was juried by Rebeka Rodriguez from Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.
A group exhibition with:
Every cause has an effect and every effect becomes the cause of something else. The artists in this show bring the learning, relationships and experience of their time at SFSU to the work in this exhibition. These undergraduate years have provided space for each artist to be active agents in their own lives and to explore the images and stories that matter to them on their own terms. The glorious result is a show comprised of works that embrace a broad spectrum of human complexity including: self-protection, isolation, private and public spheres of violence, contradictions, love, playfulness and more. Almost 100 works were submitted for consideration; the chosen pieces span drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, and video.

Note about release from North Hive:
I think, while working on this release I’ve finally approached the line beyond which my own role in the process of creation is minimized. During two working months the overall concept was changed so many times, that I’ve finally realized there’s no need for it. Sometimes the material seemed to evolve separately, on its own, leaving me only a mechanical work to record what was happening.
North hive is an electro-acoustic project established on May 2012 in Saint-Petersburg. The project is vigorously developing within such directions of electronic music as Ambient, Drone and Soundscape. Great attention is paid to details of the sound atmosphere and timbral modulation. The project is principally engaged in studio work and sound design, and takes part in different audio-visual installations as well.

Note from Evgeny Zheyda:
This album finally threatens to regenerate into something you do not expect. I tried to put maximal honesty and sincerity in The Leave of Leaves and to create music I want to listening to. Without any allowances.
From post-punk to enveloping drone and post-rock, from electronic to raw guitars. But it’s not a post-rock, it’s not a slowcore, it’s not fully lo-fi indie. And it’s not willfully eclectic unlike previous albums, and the sound is now much more serious. The Leave of Leaves has a stem and base, tangible from any point.
I believe that this is a pop music of post-modernity, its leitmotif – the cultural and social exclusion. Chopped phrases in Russian and English bares an internal confusion and retrospective look in which I found myself. The farther into the forest, the inaccessible reference points becomes, the more foreigner you become into the forest, the more blurred distant voices heard. The Leave of Leaves is an attempt to build a hut and call someone to become your guest. At least a couple of birds.
Names, distances and dates.
We will forty, there will be rain,
Warm August and thunder.
The album is a logical development of the concept a musician uses for several years. His first works were recorded on a cheap mp3-recorder and were quite harsh lo-fi. Now the primary device is a smartphone (quality defects hardly noticeable – thanks to the experience). Perhaps an author still have to move into the studio and to polish music finally.
Recorded, mixed and mastered in september of 2014 – june of 2015 at home.
