A.B.S.T.R.A.

Based in Saint Petersburg, this one-man enterprise can generate a number of alternative identities: Hypocube, Hoavi, the Shells Rattle project, and Kirill "Ufo" Vasin. In all of these sonic adventures, a core emphasis prevails: there's a stubborn discrepancy between individual and ecological or "astral" domains. A lone person considers the ineffable, perhaps invisible operations of Mother Nature or outer space. Both look better than the present (noisy) day.
