I was born in Siberia, my family lived in Taiga behind the Polar circle in a temporary settlement, while my father worked on the oil pipe construction in the 80’s, me and my sister were the only kids in the village. I was spending all my time in the taiga, witnessing the arctic lights, snow storms, presence of wild animals, hearing songs of indigenous people. Sun and frost is a full length piano album of 12 tracks and 2 bonus tracks featuring my friends musicians, each piece is an image, reflecting impressions I experienced living in the hyperborean world: magical northern scenery, native people´s songs and drum rhythms, atmosphere of the forest and the ocean.
