About this album

Musictrade release MT002, released on July 26, 2005.

This is the first common album from the Finnish ambient producer Doc and the Russian pianist Lena Selyanina. It started a long and productive musical partnership that by summer 2008 has produced already 6 full albums and several singles, mostly electronic ambient. The music on the album is deep, beatless space ambient that was inspired by J.S. Bach’s music. The original Bach works that inspired the tracks are: Invention No. 2 in C Minor & BWV 773 & Sinfonia No. 2 in C Minor, BWV 788 (Andromeda Calling), Prelude No.1 In C Major, BWV 870 (Carrier Waves) and “Ich ruf zu dir, Herr Jesu Christ”, BWV 639 (Ich Rufe).

Trivia: at the end of “Ich Rufe” Lena plays Bach’s BWV639 theme with a small chapel organ sound. Same theme played with a similar sound is also included at the very beginning of Andrei Tarkovsky’s 1972 sci-fi movie Solaris.
