Aortha is a sound project of Dzmitry Ladzes. In his music, Dzmitry studies cities sonic space. Urban field recordings is his main method and source of inspiration. No instruments, no synthesizers. Aortha works exclusively with field recordings. Synthesizers, musical instruments and sample banks are not used in the process of composing music. Field recordings are mixed and composed into audio collages. Collages processed by a certain number of sound effects. This technique of composing music reflects the concept of the presence of music in everything that surrounds us. The goal of the musician is the articulation of this music.
