Idiosync

Daniil Alexandrov has been making music since 1998, first as Moonscape, and since 2006 as Idiosync. Having experimented with a lot of forms, sounds and styles he came to a conclusion that any real life sound carries more semantic value than anything generated by a live or electronic musical instrument. Field recordings may evoke flashbacks and associations just like a familiar smell might. Modifying these recordings, chopping to pieces and blending them with each other could affect listener’s perception in the most unexpected ways. Upon that realization the musician gave up using almost all synthesized sounds and concentrated on searching, recording and altering samples.

In 2012 Daniil released his second — and Idiosync’s first — album “Extrapolation”. The material for it came from a somewhat obscure source: the musician set to dissect and reassemble the music of Soviet Union, with which he had, albeit involuntarily, a deep-rooted connection. The result is an odd mix of deconstructed old soviet songs, radio and TV broadcasts, and all and every contemporary music influence the musician has absorbed so far.

While the making of the album required from Daniil to stay within certain ideological boundaries, he doesn’t pursue any particular style or sound, constantly generating ideas and developing concepts for his sampledelic collages.

The name “idiosync” comes from the term “idiosyncrasy”, which refers to an individualizing characteristic, peculiarity or eccentricity. Idiosync stands for sample-based music that pursues unpredictability and ambiguity of interpretations.
