Notes The patterns etched into the glass resemble space invaders or digital snowflakes emanating outwards from the centre. It feels heavy and impressive to hold. Here’s what Brinstaar has to say about this work:

I’ve started working on Brinstaar project about 2006. I had a lot of experience on producing commercial music to that moment and actually was tired with satisfying someone’s needs and objectives. This project was a starting point to a whole different approach. I’ve forgot all workflows I’ve used before, because didn’t want to play rational mind-sourced music anymore. I’ve took my guitar and old soviet synth and improvised many days, playing my heart out until I noticed that something started to change. I felt like someone guides me when I’m playing, music flows from something that I call now ethereal black-silver hole in my chest. At the same time something happened with my perception, I’ve started to see patterns and structures everywhere, especially on people faces.

Yes, I know it sounds weird :) But I can nothing to do with that.

I’ve thought about the nature of this patterns, and realized that it can be just another layer of the reality interpretation in my mind. Nothing magic, but pretty beautiful. So I’ve sketched this patterns and used to create this snowflake-alike pattern you can see under the glass. Glass was taken to resemble laboratory sample, because this pattern was taken from man’s face like a sample of skin for scientific testing or analysis. Coincidentally, subsurface engraving was made at General Physics Institute supporting my scientific feel of release. I plan to make a vinyl release later this year, there will be some more patterns with it.
