Text by Картаскважин:

" Roman Voronovsky (from the city of Zhukovsky, Moscow region) is a musician, producer, performer and video artist. Founder of projects Rombix, Forhazis, Bad Fingerz Cellofano, Forhazis Penoplastik Diskotek, and label 24919. Enthusiast researcher of tape recording and manipulation processes A collector of old analog equipment, abandoned audio carriers, artifacts from radio broadcasts and field recordings.
...
On November 9, 2006, the third performance of the Rombix project took place in the Moscow “Rotonda” club, using tape loops and other sound materials. The next day, in his studio, Roman recorded a collage-mixtape “Postrotonda”, trying to reproduce the program he had played the day before in live mode.

Fragments of unpublished Rombix tracks and other prepared material dated from the late 1980s to 2006 were used as the original sounds reproduced from the tapes.

In "Rotonda", in addition to the prepared loops, the fresh track "Tape Machine" was tested for the first time, the drums for which were recorded using the Soviet analogue rhythm machine "Estradin-11", and the bass and the main synth chord were taken from the synthesizer "Solaris" ("Estradin-314").

During the performance itself and its subsequent reconstruction, Roman used two modified tape recorders for more flexible control of the tape loops. Variable switches were installed on the motors of the tape drives, which changed the playback speed of the loops, and the “reverse” Button allowed to switch between their different sides. And both of these manipulations were possible without stopping the rotation of the tapes.

The use of sounds without recognizable temporal references, the combination of natural and artificial, rustle of tape loops, spontaneous interference in the nature of their playback and the unpredictable overlay of sounds on each other --all this generates that swaying and constantly changing stream in which the perception of space and time changes.
...
For the first time, the "Postrotonda" mix was published on Roman's own pages in the spring of 2018 after almost 12 years of maturation in the author's archives, and after another 3 years it is included in the Kartaskvazhin label catalog.
...
Images from videos filmed by Roman on a tube camera (a view of an old analog video camera) were used as the source material for the release design at Kartaskvazhin. Each cassette has its own unique cover, made up of 2 original images, selected by a random number generator. A total of 15 pieces were made. "
