Andrzej Korzyński (born March 2, 1940 in Warsaw, Poland) is a Polish composer, arranger, pianist and organist.
In 1964 he graduated from the Social State Higher School of Music in Warsaw. 
He was a disciple of prof. Kazimierz Sikorski and studied composition and conducting. 
In 1965, together with Mateusz Święcicki and Witold Pograniczny founded Radio Studio "Rytm".
His creative partnership with Polish filmmaker Andrzej Żuławski 
is probably the most enduring and creatively fertile chapter in Korzyński’s career. 
The pair first worked together on Żuławski’s debut feature "The Third Part of the Night", 
and they would work on two more, "Devil" (1972) and "The Important Thing Is to Love" (1975),
before they would create what would be their defining and best work, 1981’s "Possession". 
Starring Sam Neil and Isabelle Adjani, the film was banned in the United Kingdom under the notorious Video Nasties list, 
but earned a dedicated cult following in the decades that followed. 
Korzyński’s minimal electronic score was highly sought after by collectors for many years until 2012, 
when the revered Finders Keepers label lovingly reissued it along with "The Third Part of the Night". 
The fruitful partnership of Żuławski and Korzyński would be seen and heard again on the films 
"On the Silver Globe" (1988), "Szamanka" (1996), and "Fidelity" (2000).
Throughout the ‘90s and 2000s, the Polish composer continued to work on various TV and film projects.

Funeral Oration were a band from Italy, that formed in 1989.
They played a unique style of fast "technical" black metal with some atmospheric parts,
 that revealed a tight band with very strong compositions. 
Their line up featured Nick Curri on vocals, who wrote for the cult magazine "Flash" back in the early nineties, 
Malfeitor Fabban from Aborym (and Void Of Silence) on bass duties, some composition and lyrics, 
as well as Rodolfo Russo on drums and Luca La Cara on guitars and keyboards. 
The band started as a death metal act and after many line up changes they managed to release three demo's,
a vhs release and their one and only full length album  entitled "Sursum Luna" in 1996 through Avantgarde Music.

Country: Germany

1. Untitled (Side A1) / Untitled (Side A2) 14:53
2. Untitled (Side B1) / Untitled (Side B2) 11:35

Genitor Lvminis was a project by Magnus Engwall, which began in 1997. 
The band produced dark ambient soundscapes with industrial and neo-classical influences.
"Heliokrator" (cassette limited to 50 copies) was their first release in 1998, 
followed by "Deam Adessa" (10'' ep limited to 500 copies) in 1999 that was composed by M. Engwall during 1998-99 
and packaged with a 10 page booklet, with photos and a promotional insert.
It was released by the German Stateart label and was inspired by the studies in the Tellurian path 
that connects together in a holy line to converge in the ever present Goddess of birth and death.
In 2004 the band released a mini cd entitled "Virgae" that contained two tracks.
