His music crosses multiple disciplines of electronica, but all of his work retains an atmospheric texture influenced by soundscapes, film scores, and choral music. Andrew began making music in 2011, and initiated a consistent output of self-releases in 2012. Andrew is also one half of the rock and roll duo The Pinheads, and has recently performed on and recorded drums for (exitpost) (Kenneth Herman) and Bay Kee (Christine Spilka).
Anton spent his childhood near the spaceship launching pad of Baikonur. It was the most powerful impression for creating and playing music in his original way. Fans know that Anton Gribkov’s style is using double bass like electro-guitar and more! In his portfolio are solo concertos in Moscow clubs “Bunker”, “Chinese Pilot Jao Da”, “The Edge”, “The Third Way” and Saint-Petersburg clubs “Purga”, “ESG-21”, “Griboedov”. He is an ex-leader of a remarkable trio “Magrib” and a duet “Yaldash-Ventilator”. Anton played during avant-garde festivals or fashion-weeks and at art-performances or night-clubs parties while still being a successful chamber musician in acoustic halls.
Shortly after 2000, the release of a revolutionary daw, Reason, opened a much wider scope of genres and styles, and he started to produce more downtempo, chilled out, groove-based pieces. And it was also the birth of his very humble home studio, with a Yamaha P-80 piano, and a semi-pro Creamware soundcard. With the additions of congas, derbekehh, and more recently, Korg nanoSeries as portable studio, he started to produce and performe live some experimental and ambient pieces.
He has done a few collaborations with musicians such as C. Vaisvil in various genres, and opened to all kinds of genres, and artforms, with an expanding interest for microtonal music.
Taking influences from ambient, post-rock, shoegaze, and noise, AS combined elements from many different styles and created the debut album “Illumination In D-Minor”. Aphotic Starfield’s main influences are Hammock, Altus, and Kevin Drumm.
The Project-Studio is hosted in the cellar of the Art Factory / Worms, an old industrial building of concrete and steel. Since 1979 it has been a place for alternative art and living.
Every piece of music is a recorded inspiration, moments reflected by the location`s very own social environment of converted architecture and heretic structure.
The characteristic sound of [Esc.]Laboratory / Art Factory Worms is generated by the use of strange instruments made of alien insect bodies and strongly recomended digital manipulations and de-synthesis. An amount of excessive rituals gives birth to the music that had whispered all the time – from the grains of noise – upon our ears. Now, reconfigured in a very sonic way. Further live-jams evolve the bits until they`ve reached the destination of the data storage.
The drifting act between the conceptional live-performances and the creative chaos of the studio-sessions brings the dynamic colour and the driving force. At legendary sessions celebrated in the the studio, [Esc.]Laboratory / Art Factory Worms got re-enforced by Steffen K. a.k.a. “DD-380” (bass + armageddon).
Constantly, our skeleton androids drive all our uninvited guests to get involved, too.
After the ghost dance, Doc.AtmosfearCrush touches the tapes with his sophisticated hands and manipulates their magnetic structure by the use of archaic occult methods – not further mentioned.
The massive output is representing the different split-personalities, hosted by [Esc.]Laboratory / Art Factory Worms.
Beside the continuety of live performances at exhibitions, composing music for theatre and film – also the recording, sound design and the production of other artists got realised.
A pantheon of project-based albums, compilations and remixes got released by the support of many extravagant netlabels and hostaged artists, as well as some exclusive releases on Vinyl, CD and strictly limited authentic art-collector`s CDs.

Many years spent in a shadow, hidden in the underground scene trying many different styles to develop a solid compositional manufactory. His an extreme individualist, not seeking “to like him”; seeks to include in their productions fundamental basis, which is traced in vain in the currents contemporary. Creates a variety of marks under the influences of perception, most importantly to make up the harmonious integrity of the emotional.
The part of Eth-I project are imaginary fancies of himself creator’s and therefore we can observe the extreme variety of arrangements, sections harmonic tones per se or in itself. He loves a multilevel design structures to encourage a deep thoughts. Sometimes from his production feel an experimental type of schizophrenia but what more we can expect from a guy who for many, many years made almost everything…
Over the world of sounds he’s a simply citizen, lawyer and philosopher
This is related not only in lacking an academic context, but especially with the presence of ‘a hysterical purpose’ of creating and re-arranging. The emphasis always lies on collage, the material is being fragmented and re-arranged.
jmdkm is trying to find a line of purely structural forms in a grotesque but systematic artistic perception.

Project “LastEDEN” was launched in 2003 and was named so because of its calm, pacifying, spiritually harmonic music style. Kirill’s next step is extension and completion of the “One” album.
Interest for the elements of classical music, played on strings and piano through the digital processing effects, also appeared there, as well as many other experimental ideas.
An interactive sound exhibition (actually first in Latvia) at the Contemporary Arts gallery ‘K.Maxla’, Liepaja (2003) – had the idea to analyse the information in the objects around us. This experiment followed the creative friendship with Derek Holzer (NL) – a partner for the trips into the ‘Zona’ at 2001-2003, (karosta.edworks.net). Than, Mahi Bukimi was an artist of the ‘Kolka music’ label for some time (‘Yoshio Mashida meets Kolka music artists’, ‘Sound Forest’, ‘Microstraava’, ‘2 Annas’).

In 1991 Matthew purchased his first sampler / synthesizer (a Casio FZ1 which he still owns) and immediately set to work programming industrial and noise works. After a short time in a local Goth band Matthew returned to the world of electronic music and began producing industrial and electronica works. By the early 2000’s electronica has lost much of its luster and Matthew began sliding to the periphery once again, furthering his musical exploration within the worlds of noise, drone, ambient, and experimental
Music production is the main thing in Arthur’s life. Synthesis of psychedelic trance kick and bass is essential. Ambient and Chill Out are expression of his another soul’s side – it’s deep, mental and atmospheric. Production always based on experiments, psychedelic and personal sound synthesis.
Arthur’s musical taste is very diverse. It can be signed with two tracks: “Astral Projection – Prophecy” and “Aphex Twin – Come To Daddy”.
creation of sound landscapes of ‘artificial nature’. As a result, “Cera Alba” album was born. In this album we actively use the granular synthesis based on field recordings and delay effects.
At the moment, North Hive is working at the promotion of the sound sculpture concept. In the opinion of authors of the project, this genre should let sound art get maximally close to fine arts.
His work is mainly influenced on the styles of Hammock, Olafur Arnalds, Stars of the Lid and Brian Eno. His works are based mainly on vast Soundscapes integrated with piano tracks and to a certain extent, voiceover samples.
All of Robert Farrugia’s material is completely home recorded. One can see that a minimalistic approach in his music is certainly prominent, ultimately creating rather soothing and extensive soundscapes. Methods of productivity in his music result in a certain set of distinct sounds, creating a rather unparticular and unexampled identity.
From the outset, this project aimed at a research on sound, without any other goal than the creation of a specific visual feeling and the wish to generate a dark, powerful and captivating mark.
Studied Art at the Institute of Art in Ferrara and at the Academy of Fine Art in Bologna obtaining his degree in 1991. Paolo researched in contemporary Art since 1992 and exhibited his works in several places in Italy and abroad. He is currently collaborating with the group AMAE founded in 2001 with another artist who is currently living in London.
“I’ve always intended the sound and music as something very close and important to me.
Probably I believe in that more than in visual art and it’s very hard to see these two languages separated.
I’ve never been able of living every single moment of my life without thinking of a soundtrack for that.
From 2001 I’m improving my attitude in the field of composing electronic/ambient music.“
Dark Ambient, Melancholic, Isolationism are his main genres.
Recently Paolo started a group on Souncloud where he invites other artists to give sounds to the images he uploads on the group page monthly.
“Yevgen” becomes “Tetarise” in 2008. Tetarise doesn’t have a specific genre. It’s mostly trance (melodic, progressive, psychedelic), although chillout and ambient parts can be also found. Inspired by BT, Jirah, Shulman, Tetarise starts writing beautiful atmospheric music, light and aery trance, accompanied by rough techno rythms or melancholic chillout.
