Sirotek - My Art Is My Psychota [Bored Bear Recordings - 2011]

Sirotek  began in 2008 as a solo project of Vitaly Malygin (also creative with DOR and Das Sein).  The project is based in Russia and finds inspiration from philosophy, psychoanalysis, interaction with the mentally diseased and his own neurosis.  Musically it seems to be inspired by Maurizio Bianchi, Throbbing Gristle and Merzbow

Six tracks make up My Art Is My Psychota, none are overly long (the only exception would be the 13 minute, and cleverly named The Long And Winding Headache) as to induce tinnitus. In fact the cd as a whole is highly listenable. Ear-splitting noise is tempered with whirling industrial sounds to give an almost psychedelic effect. Massive static is laced with sputtering vibrations presenting a jarring, disconnected reality. The final track Something is Wrong is a digitalized snippet of the Beatles Yesterday, the effect leaves the listener in a final state of disorientation.

My Art Is My Psychota is a fine release; Malygin craftily brings together his skill of creating harsh sounds and combining them with themes of personal identity and one’s own traumas in life.  At times it feels a little too personal, but much admiration should be bestowed on Malygin for aurally displaying his ideas.
