November 15, 2007 ~ Ravintola Lepakkomies, Helsinki

The first performances with several Aural Hypnox artists taking place in the very Heart of Helsinki. An awakening, the participants stumbling towards the realization of that which was to come.

Performances in the one of several artistic complexes and centres in St. Petersburg. Intimate and atmospheric venue and an inspiring audience. Dark and warm light starting to shine.

The final performances. The peak, crown and dispersion of the momentous and intense energies gathered. Audience either in trancelike or ecstatic states, invoking the heights with their hands in the air during the final set, stances assumed for reception of lights celestial.

Attempting to sum up such an intense journey and multi-faceted experience with a few words is nigh on impossible. Yet try we must, and thus following observations offered.

The absolutely stunning beauty of St. Petersburg, its buildings and countless bridges, and the inspiring artistry of its people. The all-too-brief, yet empowering moments presencing the quiet serenity and spirit of Saint Basil's Cathedral and many other churches. The red star over Kremlin, shining in the night at the very heart of Moscow, overlooking the Moskva River. The stern architecture and majestic monuments raised to crumbled ideologies and starbound journeys. The cold breeze blowing through icy streets, the warm spirits. The opening homes, the sincere kindness and gifts.



All of this, and more, is but a glimpse of the mystic Russia and Russianess that opened up to us during our brief journey. Salutations to Gosha and the Noises of Russia family for being such gracious hosts, to the attentive audiences, and all the good folk we met and raised toasts with.We are honoured and humbled by the experience and will return.
