“Touch the Mystery” is the latest album of the group, it was recorded in 2016.



Central piece and the title track – “Touch the Mystery” presents a “musical biography” of Vladimir Gorashchenko, rather than just a 20-minute “epic”.

“Meditations” was recorded by “Modern Rock Ensemble Putnik” Mk 1 in Italy back in 1988. Part of this recording was used in the track.

The “Swamp” was recorded live on a stereo deck during a jazz-rock festival back in 1989 by “Modern Rock Ensemble Putnik” Mk 2, re-mastered in 2014. It gives a good example of what the style of the 4-piece group was then and was its own sound during the concerts. The piece is dedicated to a well-known Russian film director Andrey Tarkovskiy and his creative work that opposed Soviet ideology.

Two short pieces: “What will happen to my country?” and “My Angels (dedicated to my wife and daughters)” were played by Vladimir on keyboards and recorded in 2014.
