“A thin dance vibrating through the doors that have been closed for ages.” – SISTAL about his release “UNKNOWN”

The music producer Stas Sursyakov a.k.a. SiSTAL fills his compositions with musical mystery, which causes the listener to dive into a meditative and hypnotic state. The true thing for him is not what he sees, but what he feels when he observes. And the sharper the feelings, the more desirable it is to express them through music. SiSTAL believes that music can tell more about a person than the person himself/herself and therefore one has the opportunity to see the world through her/his perception.

With atmospheric rhythmic structures and minimalistic sound textures, SISTAL’s album occupies the threshold between ambient and techno. Let’s see what he has to say about it!

In one sentence, how would you describe your album?

A thin dance vibrating through the doors that have been closed for ages.

What was your favourite memory or experience in producing the album?

Every person sooner or later asks himself the question of who am I? I think that our being is an empty vessel. From it you can draw knowledge and skills. All the answers we need are inside us. Jesus spoke to his disciples: if you do not lose yourself, you will not find yourself. He said that we must follow our own emptiness.

If we divide the seed of the fruit from the tree, then we will see emptiness. But from this emptiness grows a tree. There is a void in the center of the seed. The same can be said about people. Emptiness is the unknown for our understanding. But it is an empty vessel through which we can contemplate, enjoy and feel the depth.

Unknown – is a void in which I am dissolved and feeling the totality of my existence.

How do you describe your approach to sound design and minimalism?

The music is everywhere. You can hear it, even when you are in silence. And from all the sounds that are around us, I choose only those that are close to my inner state at the moment of inspiration.

Interview with Kill Acid on Space about his release “Vibrations from Space”

Kill Acid on Space was born in Bari, Italy. He begins as a young man to experiment with new sounds to use in his live set and in its productions. Lover of vinyl records and analogue instruments. His style is dominated by techno music with electronic and ambient contrasts. He is always looking for inspiration and innovative ideas to make his music unique.

With his first release on D.M.T. Records, Kill Acid on Space invites the listener to an interstellar journey through atmospheric textures of sound, with bright, clear fragments that form the dark matter of “Vibrations From Space”.

We talked to him about the story, the production process and his future plans for the EP.

What is the story of “Vibrations From Space”?

“Vibrations From Space” comes from my passion for the universe and nature. In this album I tried to represent an interstellar musical journey composed of very deep and environmental sounds. This EP has been composed in a challenging period of my life which is why it has very dark sounds that represent my state of mind in the moment of production.

How would you describe your approach to producing the sounds of this EP?

As stated above, my state of mind at that time helped me to pull up a sophisticated work, with special and magnetic sounds.

The approach I had with the sounds of this album was a mixture of my instruments, like drum machines, synthesizers, and field recordings made by me in nature.

You produce a variety of electronic music genres. How do you think ambient music integrates into other genres such as techno?

I really like to experiment with new music ranging from techno to ambient. These are the two genres I love the most. I always try to fill my techno creations with atmospheric sounds, because they seem more complete that way. Ambient sounds are fundamental to my musical background, from production to live performances.

Do you have upcoming gigs planned, where we can listen to this material live?

I’m working on organizing some summer dates, especially with my new band “The Alchemical Theory”. All updates in this regard will be available in the coming weeks on my social pages. Thanks.

Stay tuned and keep it dark, minimalistic and technologic!
