In co-operation with Editions Mego (who will release the cd-version within a notebook designed by Stephen O`Malley), we are happy to present Angel`s first studio album: Kalmukia.

Performed by Ilpo Väisänen / Hildur Guðnadóttir / Dirk Dresselhaus

The download version comes with original notations and drawings by Ilpo Väisänen.

And this is what it is all about:


On 17th of May we enter a place in Kalmukia, which is only 30-40 kilometres away from the river Volga. Locals guide us to the zone where the discovery is supposed to be, but as we come close enough, they turn back. We enter the zone and start to feel the effects immediately, but we continue like planned. We start the calculations and measurements. We make the plan for the wiring but the invasion has already started. When we enter the place it has an odd effect on us. The locals know about it and call it ‚blissfull death’. One of us gets the symptoms right away: hyperactive talking, all information coming out in one moment, continuous ejaculation or ovulation, a feeling of endless bliss before sudden death. To avoid these symptoms we have to eat sturgeon eggs. We start to build the construction like it was shown in our dreams and place the tetra-shaped device above the core. Something goes wrong, the alarm starts and a catastrophy happens.

Before and after the catastrophy we find these extremely peculiar creatures that live in the harbours of the caspian sea, where the pollution is strong and the oil is thickest. They are formations of sturgeon, identical in shape and form. The head and organs are mutated by the influence of the discovery. This creature is extremely defensive and violent towards those who threaten. The locals call them ‚the tank-parasites’. They suck oil and polluted water, filtering them to then weep out organic material from their backs. After researching their breeding-methods, we concluded that the eggs have a 100% chance of survival and after researching their intelligence, we knew that this creature would be the next dominating species on our planet.
