Studio of Unconscious Music (SUM) [Студия Неосознанной Музыки, СНМ] is a Trans-Siberian experimental formation, founded in 2005. SUM is not a music group in a usual sense of the term, but a sort of community or even free institute, the participants of which embody rather wide spectrum of music ideas under the common label – over the range from dance electronic to new improvised music and jazz-punk. It is hard to define any plain stylistic orientation in the acts of SUM – because styles themselves act there as instruments.
«Techno» is one of the subprojects of Studio of Unconscious Music, a fruit of collaboration between the founder of SUM multi-instrumentalist Alexander Markvart and the frontman of apocalyptic-improv church Sect of Phoenix Max Evstropov. «Techno»-project of SUM was first presented to public in November 2012 in the forge shop on the Karl Marx factory in Saint-Petersburg, Russia.
«Techno» is practically a song program consisting of numbers with hard rhythmic base constructed from loops in real time, with dense industrial sound and insane texts on bare life, sung sometimes in several voices. Apocalyptic dance music that can be christened as no-techno by analogy with no-wave.
