Biography

I was born in St. Petersburg Russia. Raised between New York, LA, Paris and Hawaii. Influenced by love, life, beauty, Terence McKenna, Edward Ka-Spel, Aphex Twin, self-transforming machine elves, and the impenetrable strangeness of it all.

My music is my way of describing all those experiences, because most of them cannot be described with words. My singing voice reaches far deeper than does my speaking voice, hence I am able me to bring back experiences which would otherwise be left floating in the far and mysterious ethers.

My debut LP Interlandia, was self-released in 2006 and accompanied by a 17 city west coast tour.
In the late 90's I was a part of a Los Angeles based electronic duo called d/dx. The band released a full-length LP titled Way Beyond, Way Above.
Currently I'm working on my second solo album, due to be completed by fall of 2011.
