The interaction between computer science technology and freeform musical
creative process becomes a central point in this international collaboration
of three artists from Belarus and USA. The abstract soundscapes are obscured
by intricate structures, acoustic phenomena and electronic effects, it's
going to infinity and never repeat itself. The finest harmony of soundfield
is credited to the principles of intuitive simulation, realised through
the system of computer-aided instruments.
Release date is 10 December 2005. Limited edition of 500 copies in jewelcase.
Price is 13 US$/10 Euro.

Andrey Savitsky (Minsk, Belarus) - graphic designer and composer, whose main attitude is
searching for new aesthetical forms and exploring computer-controlled sound and visual
communications. Since 1990, he studied photography and had exhibitions in Netherlands, USA
and Poland. In the meantime, he developed videoart works for various music performances,
and got interested in experiments with sound and graphic design. In 2000, he found personal
project h.h.t.p. also as the label for all related audio production. Four limited edition albums
were released: "Forming", "Tragmatics", "Wave Weavers" and "Pljonka Mira". The music is
very different, from structured noisescapes and glitchy ambient to strange ethnic songs with
software-aided voices, implementation of dub, drum-n-bass, rhythm-n-blues and hip-hop styles
is also prominent.. Apart from his musical efforts, he continue with interactive multimedia
projects, amongst others - "Webology" videoprojection and "Trashback" videoinstallation.
He also performed in such festivals as Unsound (Poland), Microstraava (Latvia), Elka.Mnsk
Dmitry Gelfand (New Yourk, USA) - visual artist and composer. Inside of the group of artists
"Poratablepalace", he creates interdisciplinary art works which integrate chemi-physical
experimentation with optics and computer science. Their central interest is the propagation
of information by means of wave phenomena: electro-magnetic (light, radiation etc.) and
isomorphic (sound) wave forms.
Dmitry Gelfand graduated from NYU Film School and studied musical composition with
Timothy Vincent Clark, a disciple of Olivier Messiaen. During 1998-1999, Portablepalace
curated the "Psycho-Acoustic" series of electronic and computer music in New York, including
collaborations with Morton Subotnik and Taylor Deupree. Also, among their credits is the
postproduction for a 35mm film "Radioman" that won a Gold Prize at the Prix Leonardo
Festival in Italy and intended to be released by Mille Plateaux. They shot, edited, and realized
the computer animation and sound design for the video piece of Osvaldo Romberg's opera
installation "Besame Mucho", which is being exhibited presently within the Media Series at
White Box. Their other collaborations include work with Russian conceptual artist Sergei
Bugaev, known as Afrika. Most recent events includes "Camera Lucida" in Russia, USA and
Germany, and "Opening Coccyx" at Die Schachtel, Milan, Italy (with Richard Chartier).

Cavitation is the phenomenon where small cavities of partial vacuum form in fluid,
then rapidly collapse, producing a sharp sound. These cavities are caused by still
object within moving fluid or by moving object in still fluid. If you focus
ultrasonic waves into water, tiny bubbles will be produced, forming a fractal
structure and radiating sound by themselves. This is a cavitation field being
produced by a radially symmetric sound field - acoustic cavitation.
