Since September 2006, Vladimír Hirsch's main solo works created in the period between 1997 to 2008, had been stepwise released on 7 discs (500 copies each). The new set includes albums previously released separately together with new material presented in the "THE ASSENT TO PARADOXON" box set. The set includes following projects: SENSE GEOMETRY, CONCERT INDUSTRIEL POUR ORGUE, SYMPHONY No.4 "Descent From The Cross", EXORCISMS, LES SCÈNES ARDENTES, CONTEMPLATIO PER NEXUS and two CDs only as a component of the box, NONTERRA and a bonus CD, UNDERLYING SCAPES, for those that ordered the box set before 31st March 2010. Released by Italian independent label ARS BENEVOLA MATER.

The collection represents the survey of development of the musicians´s creative effort in his self described concept of "integrated music", working with new forms of contemporary classical, dark ambient and ambient industrial music. His creative direction aims toward the modern form of classical music. Through the instrumentation and exploitation of new sonic characteristics created by the force of digital techniques upon classical instruments and the integration of these sounds into ambient structures, his music characterizes the contemporary post-industrial likeness of our world. Through these techniques, Vladimir Hirsch strives to reach an organic incorporation of seemingly distinct and irreconcilable elements into a living form. All albums were performed by Vladimir Hirsch (all keyboard instruments, digital technique) with some participation of Czech Integrated Ensemble and soloists Dawn Hermosa (vocal, lyrics), Martina Sanollová & Dominika Karčovská (vocals). The box set official release date is 17th May, 2010.

Quotes: The artist can do nothing else but search for the meaning of life, for its matter, disregarding what will be and without pretension to its fruition. I am in the conviction that my music primarily wants to be an authentic scan of my mind. I often hear: "Why is your music so dark?“ I don’t reason in similar categories. It is the subject of slanted thinking, addictions or standards of individual perception. The substance of light does not exist without the dark. I reject all kinds of spurious affirmation and optimism. It fills me up with more darkness than the blackest despair. (V.Hirsch for RUMORE magazíne)

"Classical influences, choirs and dark industrialism are the core of Vladimir's music, never sounds relaxed. Every work represents a step of the human race's decay and the music is its soundtrack. Melodies have counterpart dissonances which sometimes sound linked to contemporary classical more than to industrial music. For this reason Vladimir is a peculiar musician in the industrial scene, because he's more than that and "The Assent to Paradoxon" is the perfect way to explore his vision" (Maurizio Pustianaz).

Order: Ars Benevola Mater


"Music composition whether in a simple or sophisticated form, must exhibit a moment when all its springs merge into one powerful current that lifts Man above his being - an ecstatic eruption transporting us above ourselves. Solely this moment gives meaning to music and justifies its existence on a higher sphere."

“Hirsch's creation of unrestrained power, mysterious whispers, drones, synth lines etc, finally constituting a defined wholeness and totality of sound, so vast and universal, so definitively orchestral. This aspect is clearly where his expertise resides, to create a whole atmospheric undercurrent where the listener himself submerges into a specific context and ultimately finds the mystery that lies in this philosophic aural evocation. The music preserves a cadence, this aspect gives an ever evolving dynamism to the orchestral narrative and its defined industrialized rhythm permeates the work within a clear post industrial context, a temporized machine march that commands the movements setting the pace for each section in a rather paused way, accenting the terrible tragic mood from its aural offering.”

Heathen Harvest

“The music of Czech composer Vladimír Hirsch seems like the work of a real original, a maverick who has forged an aesthetic that doesn't sound quite like anything else. The music has a power that's hard to explain but that's undeniably compelling. Listeners of his work that stretches boundaries and has a visceral punch are likely to be intrigued or even deeply moved by Hirsch's ominous, tempestuous sound worlds. ”

Stephen Eddins
All Music Guide

"The complexity, modernity and scale that Hirsch has delivered with Graue Passion (Symphony No.4) that few others in the underground scene could hold a candle up to his achievements. This is a simply stunning work that should appeal to anyone with an appreciation for dark music in general and a bent for the neoclassical avant-garde. This is not a release to be dipped into lightly but to be savoured, at leisure, in a darkened space where you can fully immerse yourself and let your imagination provide the film for this epic soundtrack. Breathtaking, moving and darkly divine!”
