The son of
the famous Russian electronic sound creator
Eduard Artemiev, Artemy is in his own right a
talented Russian composer who works in the field
of electronic music. His profession is soundtrack
composition. He has scored music for more than
fifty Russian feature films, documentary films,
theater plays, and television programs.
The music of his first solo album, "The
Warning," was written

music with dark, modern ambient textures. "The
Warning" has appeal
for those who like electronic sound as well as
modern musical art.
is the second solo music project by Artemiy
Artemiev. Here the composer experiments with
sound in an attempt to make listeners not only
feel the cold embodied in the sound, but also to
transmit it from the ears into the soul.
Sonically, the experience consists of dense
rhythmic textures and extreme tone colors.
What is cold? Is it a feeling of fear when you
are afraid to lose the warmth that gives you
life? Or is it a feeling of emptiness and
loneliness? Maybe it is a certain state of
existence where a person can look inside
themself, escape the chaos, and comtemplate past,
present and future.
In his third
opus, Artemiev tries to find a "Point
between two genres of music - electronic and
electro-acoustic, and two cultures - Eastern and
Western. The music is complex and multi-layered,
fusing Russian classicism with multinational
cultural influences and classic cosmic
synthetics. It allows the listener to experience
his own point of intersection between the harmony
of nature and the human soul, between heaven and
earth, between life and death.
fourth album, "Five
Mystery Tales of Asia",
Artemiev takes an audio excursion into the
culture of the Far East. Combining electronics
with the timbres and native instruments of
Mongolia, China and Japan, this series of five
compositions blends Mongolian folk themes with
the mystical spirits of ancient Chinese dynasties
and the ambience of a sacred Japanese temple. The
musical result conjures up the magic of a
moonlight meditation along the Great Wall.
