My Dear Friends!
The Project SENMUTH is now available for FREE download from senmuth.com
But now I need your support.
The activity of my Project is stopped, because of the sharp deterioration of my health.
I need urgent surgery, which is not free. And unfortunately I can’t finance it by myself.
But with minimal help from each of you, this surgery could be real.
Surgery date: May (when I gather enough money to pay for it)
Then, I’ll be in rehabilitation for 1-3 month.
Thank you for your support!
@OcellatedGod To a certain extent this is true, but it's hard to join unrelated concepts into one CD when they should be two. A lot of Senmuth's material is like that. Like the album on Camry drifting in the desert. How do you combine this concept with something like Энграмма? They are two albums and should be released as two.
I think you missed my point. I didn't say it's not developed, I simply think it's impossible to release 10 albums a year and maintain the same quality standards as when releasing one. It's worth taking the extra time to create something truly great than putting out a flood of work, only some of which is any good. I'd rather listen to one masterpiece than 10 "pretty good" albums. It's purely a quality vs. quantity issue. But maybe that's just me.
@OcellatedGod: I really think this is a low-brow opinion. I somewhat agreed with you at first. But I thought about it for a second and really you are not correct. Just because you listen to too much Senmuth at once and get tired of slow ambient music doesn't mean it isn't "developed". As for playing style or note arrangement, that is Senmuth's style. It is unique and not for everyone. Just listen to Энграмма and tell me that is not "developed". I'm afraid you have no clue what you are talking about...
Anyway, my point wasn't to bash Senmuth, maybe that shout was too harsh. I think he's a very talented musician and graphic artist with some really interesting historical insights. But I also think that so far in his musical career, he's been focusing on quantity over quality, and that's unfortunate. If he took more time to let his ideas develop and made Senmuth albums more concise, by now he could have a record deal and be on top of the post-metal scene. IMHO.
Senmuth, the russian assembly-line worker of music. But with a damn high quality! I don't know where he get's his inspiration from, but I bet there's plenty of it available! He's giving away quality music of different styles for free while others charge a lot for their crap (regarding quality not taste). Switching from MP3 to FLAC would be too much to ask would it? :)
