melting clouds is a post-rock, psychedelic, experimental, meditative band from Kyiv. Created in Spring of 2009 it's still looking for its own means of expression in sound and musical approach. Their music is comprised of considerably modified guitar sound added to distinctive atmospheric electronic background with the support of live drums and percussion. The musicians often abandon the riffic sound in favor of creation of sonic atmosphere to create a mood and their music becomes slightly meditative in a very unusual interpretation of post-rock.

1,5 hours of combined music and video created a frighteningly spacious atmosphere of arched galleries, enticing the listener with its rich sound of at times enveloping, at times tearing and hacking passages, enclosed into smooth and diverse video footage. The play of sound and light subtly captivated the space not letting to ignore the impulse, making the listener either fully accept everything that was going on as a phenomenon and realize oneself as an empathetic creator or fully reject what was going on, which appealed to variety of feelings and experiences, both enticing and frightening, claiming the listener for the ability to respond.

The diverse fusions of the listener and the spectator, the light and the music, the idea and the shape created highly complex, but cozy picture, where everyone would be free to become a light and fleeting cloud, entrusted to the wind to finally melt, but stay.
