Sinexoid – Mute


Sinexoid – is a project of Alexey Rodin (also known as Adaptcore, Hydrocore Wise, Human Terminal), a musician from Moscow Region, Russia, whose albums emerged on such labels, as Dark Winter, Benekkea, Rec72 and NoiseKoncept. His newest work, called “Mute”, which will be reviewed here, Alexey released by himself, and, as it can be understood from the listening, he really knows what to release, what to present to the listeners.  Starting with soft piano attack of “Awakening” with its pure and weightless substance, “Mute” opens its doors, but the first thing you can see after awakening is “Melancholy”. I must admit, it is not a black melancholy – it is a rainbow feeling, full of airy sounds. Maybe it is also a preparatory track for a listener, because in a melancholical state you can perceive more sides of Existance, than you can, being in euphoria – because you are opened for impressions and thoughts of opposite orders. Then comes “Time Of Dissolution” with its a little bit brittle rhythm, though good preserved by tranquil melody and mild riffs. Listening to “Avoiding Me”, I saw some influences of maybe Ulrich Schnauss, in “We Have No Choice” – influences of Boards Of Canada, and on some other tracks. We often are afraid of this notion – “influence”, but in some cases, to which Sinexoid belongs, we must be proud of such influences – just because they are good and beneficial. Of course, I can be wrong in defining those influences, but I can’t do anything with my subjective approach. Now, let’s make a jump over some tracks and come to “People Are Fragile”  with its considered architecture and atmosphere. For me this track seemed a sum of the means and ways, used in the entire album – it is evident, that the author put the larger part of his creative mood into this piece. It isn’t very powerful as some previous tracks, but its power is hidden inside and in its title, I agree, that people are fragile. But it is wonderful, that some of such fragile people can make such great music.
