E'sPsychedelicBreakfast I'm always looking for bizarre and obscure pieces of music that push the borders of convention a little further like this album does. I never heard anything like it before. Madness in its purest of forms. Truly spine-chilling and haunting.
To me the easiest way to describe this album is "schizophrenia translated into sound".
Come and join to experience going down the road of insanity! Favorite track: Le premier.
Le premier 32:01
Le second 25:01
Le troisieme 22:00


NEW ART ENSEMBLE (aka HXA) from Chelyabinsk was formed in 1987 by Lev Gutovsky, a graduate of Ural State Conservatory. His ensemble was arguably the only professional musical act in the USSR dedicated to creating music for absurdist theatre and postmodernist happening. By the end of the 1990’s, HXA shrunk to a trio of Lev Gutovsky (voice, electronics), Sergey Belov (trombone, electronics) and Olga Leonova (voices) increasingly focused on modern improvised and electro-acoustic music. Lev Gutovsky tends to call his recent researches “electronic disclosure of sound objects” or “free electronic manipulations on the precise dramatic basis”. HXA are responsible for numerous theatrical shows, sound-and-visual installations as well as busking performances which are just about anything that Gutovsky finds entertaining.
