Yuri left PSVSV in early 2009, while completing his own next album «Rattles». SSW's music becomes somewhat softer, however, still retaining its rough edge. Minimalistic repetition and «wicker-work» come to more prominence during the extensive solo performances. Despite of SSW losing interest in «studio» work, the music of that period finds a way to its realization in a recorded form. In January of 2010, Sine Seawave releases the «Live Tapes» trilogy, entirely comprised of spontaneous solo improvisations without any extra takes, corrections etc.
Earlier in the fall of 2009, Yuri joins Karnātaka-Taiga Express. The participation in KTX has been influencing his work in Sine Seawave since then on, leading to more and more exploration of traditional modal structures, the ragas and melas of Indian Classical Music. In the summer of 2011, Sine Seawave was joined by electric bassist Wadim S. Dicke (Sekta Phoenixa, PSVSV, Karnātaka-Taiga Express), thus turning from once a solo project into a duo. The music becomes somewhat harder, repetition is now balanced by linear and thematic development, and the modal structures become even more prominent.
In its further development, SSW's music more and more defies categorization against established genres and styles. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
