Biography

Kyiv, Ukraine (1998 – present)

Kotra is Dmytro Fedorenko from Kiev, Ukraine. Though he is a classically trained guitarist, you won’t hear a guitar in his harsh, lately inderministic extreme noise music. Dmytro helped Andrey Kiritchenko with running the pretty famous experimental label nexsound and has recently co-founded the Kvitnu label together with Zavoloka.

Dmytro started making music in an avant-garde or noise duo called Zet; after its breakup in 1998 he started the Kotra project, releasing tapes and CDs, at first sounding industrially and rhythmic, combining extremely loud waves with other extremely loud waves and playing with the results. When playing live, Kotra often uses the device hand-made by fellow nexsounder ok_01.

He has collaborated with artist duo Akuvido, who have often designed covers for him. Together they have several interactive web projects - sounds made by Kotra and concept, visual part created by akuvido.

Kotra is a very active and productive artist - intensively performing in Ukraine, Russia, Germany on festivals and tours. There are loads of net-releases available on various netlabels all over the world. Dmytro plays a big role in organizing the Detali Zvuku festival in Kiev, inviting such acts as Staalplaat Soundsystem, Pole.

A lot of tracks from the TEK album and some from Dissilient have been used by ukrainian filmmaker Alexander Shapiro in his 2006 film Happy People.
