Traditional electronic music - a genre that will never be popular. It is too romantic and not the story of the household chores, too tactful and do not impose itself on the listener. There are always a bit of composers who are ready to give up their claims to the easily achievable popularity in the name of intelligent romance - it's usually home musicians who work for the pleasure, if not into the desk drawer - and in our time in Russia there are only a few of them. This year, one of those few projects - WMRI - celebrates its 10th anniversary. This release is not only a chronological anthology of the best moments in different years, but a manifesto commitment to the traditions of synthesizer music, and we hope that it will please fans of the genre.
- Anna Riet, composer of the project WMRI
My dear listener! Our project is 10 years old. In the 21st century, time runs so fast that it feels like it was yesterday. Today's global information world is very different from what it was previously. All borders are erased, the world is small, at least in the eyes of ordinary internet surfer. No one is surprised that the music of a Russian composer can be listened on the other side of the world, somewhere in Argentina, South Africa, China or New Zealand. Nevertheless, it is still nice to see that some people do not stop searching for the new musical horizons. For them we create, for them we exist. I hope these are not the last 10 years, but only the first.
