Kubrick’s Cube – Odissey

Odissey by Kubrick's Cube cover | Ultra Vague

 

Kubrick’s Cube is a project born from one shared idea of 10 Moscow-based musicians: to erase the notion that music is something that can be categorised. For them, music has evolved beyond genres and styles, and with the dawn of electronics beyond even the studio/ live split.

«This project has a single goal — to erase the standard divisions between musical formats. We would like to show that all notions of genre and style are already outmoded. The line between electronic and ‘live’ sound has likewise faded away. 

It’s bloody fantastic.
Jonny Hunter Muzik Dizcovery

We strive — as a result of those claims — to combine incompatible elements and go in search of new sonic territories. Kubrick’s Cube is a collection of ten musicians, each of whom has his own vision and understanding of music.»

The imagery of novelty as vaguely discerned distance reappears.

 

It ends up as an utterly stark-raving mad dive through every electronic style that’s mattered in the last few years, while tearing strips from jazz, rock and pop along the way. At the same time, it carries all this with a distinctly fresh and unique style the likes of which will only be matched by a handful of releases this year. – John Hunter
