The six songs on the latest offering from Karneval are all inspired by and named after films, most of which you are likely to be unfamiliar with. But if you haven’t seen, for example, the Salvador Dali-written Destino you’ll want to after hearing Karneval’s musical interpretation of the psychedelic short. Karneval describe themselves as an electro baroque pop band and „Destino“ is an airy dream where the music takes a back seat to the lead vocals of Milica Krstic. The song recalls the early work of prog band Renaissance and since Krstic is not singing in English it’s easy to let your mind wander during a listen and imagine her as a medieval princess in need of rescue. Whatever your interpretation, her vocals on the song whip up a great hook that sticks with you for awhile. Jethro Tull-ish flute riffing enhances „Dvoje,“ „Fitzcarraldo“ and „Le Notti Bianche“ find Krstic in an operatic mood and „Wild at Heart,“ sung in English, has Karneval turning up the Balkan electro beats to give Krstic a chance to work in a vein that’ll be familiar to Kate Bush fans. Movies is a sublime trip to the cinema and you won’t even need popcorn.

Miki Prokop i Saša Janković (Strip studio)

Prilično dugo sam tražio kvalitetnu opciju za mastering albuma. Imao sam više neuspešnih pokušaja preko interneta sa inostranim producentima koji me na sreću nisu ništa koštali. Mnogo priče, a rezultati prilično bledi. Sve u svemu, internet muzička industrija je lov u mutnom. Gomila foliranata koji pecaju po celom svetu milione bendova obećavajući profesionalan mastering koji se na kraju svede na propuštanje vašeg albuma kroz par već unapred pripremljenih setinga bez obraćanja pažnje na vaš specifičan zvuk. Nakon niza razočarenja, Olja iz Autoparka mi je preporučila Sašu Jankovića koji je njima radio album uz niz hvala za njegov rad i pristup. Zahvalan sam joj na tome jer se Saša zaista pokazao u svom najboljem svetlu, kao i Miki koji sa njim radi. Odmah smo se skapirali, njima se dopao album i bez problema smo se dogovorili oko celog posla. Nakon par probnih snimaka, dao sam im zeleno svetlo za pravac koji je zvučao najbolje, a onda smo tokom jednog radnog dana, u njihovom Strip Studiju, završili kompletan album. Ukoliko želite da radite profesionalan mastering albuma, najtoplije vam preporučujem Mikija i Sašu. Retko normalni i prijatni ljudi koji zaista vole dobru muziku plus su majstori svog posla.

Dakle, dragi prijatelji, album „Movies“ je u muzičkom smislu završen. Blurred trenutno radi na dizajnu omota, a nakon kompletnog spakovanog proizvoda, ostaje pitanje načina izdavanja. Sačekaćemo na reakcije nekih ljudi iz inostranstva, pre nego što definitivno prelomimo na koji način će album da se pojavi na tržištu.

Pratite narednih dana informacije na sajtu ili našem twitter nalogu jer će Movies, najverovatnije, imati svoju radio premijeru uskoro. Obavestićemo vas na vreme kada ćete moći premijerno da čujete neke pesme sa albuma.

Miki Prokop and Sasa Jankovic (Strip Studio)

For quite a long time I was looking for a quality option for mastering process. I have had several unsuccessful attempts over the internet with foreign producers, which (fortunately for me)  didn’t cost anything . Lot of talking but quite pale results. All in all, the internet music industry is like  fishing in troubled waters. A bunch of phonies who are just fishing around within millions of bands from all over,  promising professional mastering, which is eventually reduced to a few predefined audio settings, but without paying attention to your specific sound . After a series of disappointments, Olja from Autopark has recommended Sasa Jankovic who worked on their last album, speaking very highly about him. I am grateful for it because Sasha and Miki (who works with him ) really showed in their best light.From the start we had clicked,  they liked the album and we arrange the whole deal without any problem. After a few test shots, I gave them the green light and then, within one working day, in their music studio Strip, finished the complete album. If you want to do  professional master of your album, I highly recommend Miki and Sasa. Rarely normal and nice people who really like good music plus they are true  masters of their work.

So, dear friends, the album „Music“ is musically completed. Blurred is currently working on the design of the cover, and after a full packed product, the question of publishing still remains. We’ll wait for the reaction of some people from abroad, before we make definitive decision about releasing our album on the market.

Follow the next few days  information on this site or through our twitter account,  because  „Movies“ will have its radio premiere really soon. We will notify you  when and where you will be able to hear the premiere of a songs from the album.

MASTER BABY MASTER TAPE!!!

Došli smo do kraja. Vlada nam je sredio kvar na magnetofonu tako da smo Miša i ja za vikend KONAČNO snimili miksove na master traku. Njegov album „Music hologram of Nikola Tesla“, na kojem sam ja radio produkciju i „Movies“, drugi album Karnevala su prevalili ogroman, dug i iscrpljujući put. Ostala je post produkcija i pitanje izdavanja.

Osećam se istrošeno, kao na iglama, ponosan i zbunjen. Toliko smo problema imali tokom rada na oba albuma, a toliko malo sredstava. Borili smo se lavovski za maksimalan kvalitet naših ideja i sada čujem da smo uspeli u tome.

BABY SOMETIMES YOU WIN!

MASTER BABY MASTER TAPE !!!

We came to an end.Vlada has fixed the tape recorder so Miša and I FINALLY  recorded mixes on the master tape during this weekend. His album „Music hologram of Nikola Tesla“, on which I did sound production and „Movies“, second album of Karneval, have travel huge, long and exhausting journey. Remaining things to resolve are post production of the album and issue of publication.

I feel worn out, on pins and needles, proud and confused. So much trouble we had while working on both albums, and so few resources. We fought like lions for the maximum quality of our ideas and now I hear that we did it.

BABY SOMETIMES YOU WIN!
