Biography

Weird electronic synthesized melodies blended into atmospheric ambience with classical sounds of piano and orchestra smashed with breakbeats and dub space beats. That’s the sandwich glued together, which is presented via the Space Muze album and that is the most present representation of my music.
Originally I am from Ukraine, Kharkov and was born there. Back to the 1990s when I attended musical school there was always some sort of a pull away from regular classical and any type of music for me. Even though many of the compositions like the Prelude Op. 23 No. 5 or my favorite - the Prelude Op. 3 No. 2 of Rachmaninov are unique and in my opinion look experimental, there was some sort of other direction. Once I was finished with musical school, there was the dance school (Academy of the Modern Dance), where I was introduced to breakdancing and the first break moves were performed under the sounds of to The Prodigy. It may sound strange, but you can compare The Prodigy with classical music if you actually listen very close and try to get inside the music. And it was always about the music…
When I immigrated to the U.S. in 1999, almost immediately I had this desire to do something outside of the box. It did not take long before I started experimenting with Russian hip-hop. However, it was becoming boring for me and that may be the reason hip-hop direction was relatively short and looked more like teenager vandalism.
