My latest collaboration with Fransoafran: a cinematic piece for piano strings drawing inspiration from our European and Russian roots. 

Big thanks to Modern Classical X

 

Happy New Year

2019 ended on a black note in Australia. Fires raging across half the nation and ash falling from the sky. New Year was a time of hope and new beginnings. A chance to leave the horrors of the fires behind and embrace the prosperity of 2020.

Well, we all know how that went… 

This song was written to embrace that fleeting feeling of hope that we all felt,  before it all came crashing down…

Thank you

Monsters

I was compelled to write this song when I read an article about a horrific act of animal cruelty that happened in Russia in 2015.

Thank you

Andrey Khartzisov for the moving animation

Spring

Spring is the story of a shepherd girl and her dog, who face ancient spirits in order to continue the cycle of life. This poetic and visually stunning short film was written and directed by Andy Goralczyk, inspired by his childhood in the mountains of Germany.

Legends of Baikal

This song was written as an accompaniment to Angara’s Jewels, a Russian audiobook based on the legends of Buryatia. It takes listeners through a series of moods and scenes to reflect the characters’ journey through woodlands and mountains of Syberia.

Beyond the Arctic Circle

This song was originally written for a documentary about The Brusilov Expedition trapped in the Arctic. Unfortunately, the film never went to air, but I still love this piece of music which represented the voyagers’ 400 kilometres trek across frozen tundra.
