1) Rigel is a foot stomping blend of Irish, Scottish and Cape Breton music wrapped up in the irresistible modern Celtic genre. Rigel is known for their energetic, powerhouse performances that leave audiences craving for more.
2) Shining with approximately 40,000 times the luminosity of our Sun, Rigel is the brightest star in our local region of the Milky Way and the eponym of psy-prodigy Vasili. In his early teen years Rigel experimented with electronic kits, constructing flip-flop circuits, lfos, etc. Once he got his hands on fast tracker and his first soundcard, the avid juggler Rigel quickly moved to juggling audio in the computer. Focusing on soft modular synth tweakage, he began producing in various styles of electronic music. With a vast variety of musical influences - from techno & trance to jazz & funk, from chill to dnb - he funneled his character into a charismatic and eclectic psychelectronica sizzling with freshness. During the following years, he attended multimedia studies, won computer music competitions and made himself a solid name playing live and as dj in various clubs and on open air festivals, as well as with writing and producing for tv and radio commercials, theater plays, circus shows, remixes and more. Since then Rigel has evolved to a full fledged powerhouse and legitimate bearer of his monicker.
