STAR FK RADIUM - "Blue Siberia"
Self released 2010


Music: Unplugged Instrumental Progressive Classic Music
Website: www.starfkradium.com
Duration: 38:14 minutes (9 tracks)
Country: The U.S.A.

The band STAR FK RADIUM I treat as curiosity… Some day I received odd e-mail with laconic information about the band music… “Acoustic Instrumental band, guitar, drums and violins” as well as the Internet address… After listening the first sounds I decided to react… And I received the neat digipack with the album "Blue Siberia"…

The music from the album is very nostalgic, it floods out from itself calm string sounds with the accompaniment of acoustic guitar chords and passages as well as varied rhythms of drums. The flowing music sounds very balladic like the sung poetry (without lyrical singing) spreading calm and warm climate (skipping the fact, that the album has frosty title). Though the calm and the warmth aren't only attributes of reigning atmosphere from "Blue Siberia", because during of durations of the album sadness, some musing, gentle darkness and even fear also appear. So like the Siberian climate is changeable, so the dynamics of tracks is changeable, from very quiet and melancholy subjects to pretty energetic chordal-percussive hits. Despite of all melancholy and positive climate reigns in the music.

The whole is well-kept in canons of classic music (thanks to different violins and guitar sounds) with influences of progressive music (which often shows up as difficult rhythmical section) and of soft rock (as some guitar phrases). "Blue Siberia" is like retreat from everyday noise, turmoil and hurry. Though in the moments this music can dangerously intensify lowered tune... I thought about " The Four Seasons" of ANTONIO VIVALDI... and really - Vivaldi ideally transfused the specific of every seasons of year on the notes, that we also can visualize the beauty, power and the changeability of frosty Siberia by "Blue Siberia" of STAR FK RADIUM.
