Biography

PSVSV is an electro-musical ensemble from Moscow, Russia. It was formed in Tomsk in 2003 by a futurist also carrying the name of psvsv, by that time known as the percussionist of post-industrial band Sekta Phoenixa; later the ensemble was joined by a few other members of then recently disbanded Sekta.

“PSVSV” is an abbreviation of a bit distorted Russian translation of a line from Ovid’s Metamorphoses, “non bene junctarum discordia semina rerum” [Met. I, 9] – Плохо связанные враждой семена вещей . This full name of the ensemble, with a slight twist of the meaning in it, can be translated into English as “badly combined with discordance atoms of things”.

This poetical description of the primordial Chaos can refer either to the peculiarities of the ensemble’s method, or to the subject of its work. Experimenting widely with the musical language, PSVSV consider their enterprise a scientific research, regarding music as a means of exploration of the impersonal archetypical structures.

For PSVSV to explore is to exercise and to express, though the subject of their music, to their point of view, can not be treated as “individual”, “psychic” etc. However, the structures they deal with may be called “informational”. Futuristic informationalism, having been confessed initially by the ensemble, according to which “information” has been supposed to become a replacement of other states of matter (or of the matter itself), is nowadays manifestly conjunct in their work with an attempt of investigation (or expression) of the impersonal “sacral”.
