A collective cherishing its own internal contradictions and using them as an artistic method.
DAT DOT is a duo which is experimental for starters, in the sense of its premises. It is the result of a rather wild idea to combine melodic skills of an experienced composer Aliya Sagitova with a pretty vague audible contribution of some guy who, to make matters worse, prefers to hide his name.
The working process of DAT DOT is simple and quite sequent: Aliya creates a melodic basis, then the second participant messes with it, cuts instrumental parts in pieces and adds effects. After that, Aliya reviews the outcome of those manipulations and tries to save as much of the beauty of her original sounds as possible. Finally, two colleagues find a sort of compromise and that’s it.
It may sound a bit tough, but there is just a regular, normal amount of struggle and pain which are, as you know, the usual elements of any creative process.

Oh, wait. We are.
