Aelita is the first professional full length CD album of the Echochorus, new musical project of Kirils Lomunovs. This feature has come by means of soviet synthesizers as a try to construct modern sound like a continuation for the visual reality built at soviet movie “Aelita.The Queen of Mars”(director Yakov Protazanov, USSR, 1924).

There are not such many artists, who would produce 100% analog albums nowadays. Aelita CD based on pure “Soviet” sound in full and represents RAW ANALOG LIVE RECORDED TECHNO!

Echochorus brought a possibility to hear authentic soviet vintage analog synthesizers only: Aelita, Polivoks, Formanta EMS-01, Altair-231, Alisa-1387, Estradin-230 and also the analog drum-machine RMIF ES-2-5 and analog drum synths Lell UDS and Formanta UDS.

Aelita is a pure improvisation recorded on magnetic tape recorder. The process of recording Aelita tracks is similar to the work was made on another wide known project of Kirils Lomunovs – Astrowind, Paleopsychedelic ambient music project.

“The main mood of Aelita came as retrospection - separate memories from my soviet childhood. Such kind of a flashback: black and white glimpsing on a screen of an old soviet TV set, strange symbiosis of avant-garde picture and propaganda… This flavors Aelita compilation with meditative and deliberative but antagonistic character.”

Kirils Lomunovs, Echochorus
