The album "Formanta" comes from the latin formatio (formation) and is also the name of the 1970's soviet vintage synthesizer. Formanta album has elements of krautronica, folktronica, shoegaze and ambient.
Each track is carefully crafted by gradually washing you gently with their lush deep, warm beautiful sounds that almost sound abit similar to Ulrich Schnauss, Seefeel, and Paavaharju. Russian trio 2muchachos find themselves in methodic ambience, the ticking clock of time measures these compositions into structured forms, bringing the band's sound closer to the realm of Icelandic slow core like "Sigur Ros" or, when factoring in the much more subdued, delicate touch which the band employs and it's mastery of pastoral bliss would be more suited to Icelandic band "mum".
Apparently, Radiohead's-Kid A and Portishead's-Third albums have also been a major inspiration on this album.All the tracks on this album are designed to take you on a journey through the seasons. Each track flows into the next track, like a medley. There is some sort of background noise between the tracks which suggests the album could of actually been created outside, giving it that natural organic, field sound recording vibe. There are lots of ambient hissing noises, crackles, unidentifiable percussion, droning organs, hushed echoing vocals and some really awesome gitchy IDM
