The Artifacts, - the objects and things, found in the Misterious Zone, which was described in Strugatskys' novel ''Roadside Picnic''. Silent, numb, staying in total quietude they become the speechless observers and witnesses of the events happening in the Zone. The listener, just as Stalker himself, is walking past and through all these artifacts and phenomenons, and finally, he comes towards the wish-granting Golden Sphere, which fulfills the most desired wishes.
Thirty musicians have taken part in the recording of this suite. The sessions went in the format of audio-fixation of free studio improvisations, which were later edited very carefully. The project model of the program was completed and discussed in 2011. In 2012 was chosen and compiled the list of the artifacts; to each of them were chosen corresponding compositions, a well-thought conception and style. The final mastering of the album was made in the beginning of 2013.
