My story started in Moscow on January 25, 1974, the day I was born. My father was a talented amateur musician who played many musical instruments and my mother had an incredible voice and sang beautifully. When I was 4 I started to play drums. And When I was 5 my parents sent me to music school where I learned how to play the piano. Afterwards I enrolled in the Gnessins Musical College.
In 1996 I got acquainted with Russian producer Andrey Grozny. He needed an assistant at his studio and he offered me a job. At first, it was a bit hard for me to work there as I lacked any experience of working in a studio. However, I did my best to catch up with everything and very soon I was able to perform quite serious work. I collaborated with many Russian bands and musicians (such as Amega, Litsey, MF-3, Blestyashchie, Musicola) as a record producer, keyboardist and a musical director.
The new millennium started bringing significant changes into my life. The Amega broke up and I began collaborating with Zhanna Friske and Russian popular girl's band Blestyashchie as a permanent record producer. At the same time I began my career as a film score composer.
For Zhanna Friske I have produced such tracks as "La-La", "Gde-to Letom", "Ya Byla", "Portofino", "A na More Belyy Pesok", etc. My work with the Blestyashchie resulted in the tracks "Za Osenyu Pridet Zima", "Letala", "Au-Au", “Ya i Ty”, “Palmy Parami”, “Apelsinovaya Pesnya”, “Agent 007”, “Znaesh Milyy”, “Shar”, etc. As a film score composer I wrote cues for the films AFERA, S DNYOM ROZHDENIYA, LOLA! and for the TV series VIOLA TARAKANOVA and MENT V ZAKONE.
In 2004 after several intervals I graduated from the Gnessins Musical College, the Department “Choir Conducter”. A few years later I was invited there to give lectures on Modern Music Production. At present I work as a freelance record producer, mixer and sound engineer with various projects. Furthermore, I am working on my own project called Kharuta. My first studio album "Where" was released in 2015. That’s about all at the moment, though the story is not finished…
