Oleg Shpudeiko is a music composer and performer from Kiev, Ukraine. Self-taught, started composing music in 2003 under moniker ‘Heinali’. His sound is stylistically eclectic, though many compositions are electroacoustic and often incorporate sound processing methods and techniques. Since 2009 joined the Soloma art group, composing music for art installations and performances. In 2011 Heinali’s debut album ‘67 Breaths’ with symphonic music and electronics was released on Arlen. Followed by ‘Air’ on Fluttery Records in 2012, with minimalist, chamber compositions for piano, strings and field recordings. In the same year two CDs, combining spoken word performance and heavy guitar sound, ‘Conjoined’ and ‘Ain’t No Night’ were released on Paradigms Recordings in collaboration with American poet Matt Finney. In 2013, together with classically trained music composer Alexey Shmurak, formed the ‘Blook’ duo, which is dedicated to the clear, in terms of structure and image, music, with refined timbral, melodic and harmonic work. Not abandoning the genre and style connotations, project concentrated in listening to the sound, bringing out as emotionally rich palette as possible. Heinali’s live shows usually feature electroacoustic and piano improvisations. Oleg also composes music for films, commercials and games.
