Snow Slow Party
At the age of 13 he started making music. As it used to be at that time there were a lot of home lo-fi recordings and rock-based experiments. In 1992, together with a friend Vlad Tsvetkov, Roman started a band by name of Second African Hunt. After three years of making music the band switched to a combination of guitar sounds and analog-computer tones.
After the S.A.H. activity dropped down to zero, Roman started a new solo project 0:28, oriented to an atmospheric electronic music and ambient. At the period from 1999 to 2001 three albums were created: “Introverb”, “This Is on Lunar Soil”, “Deja Vu”. Naik Borzov was impressed with his music so much that he invited Roman to take a part in his big concert in Moscow. Collaboration of the electronic musician from Izhevsk and the metropolitan rock-star continued with some remixes of Naik’s and his wife’s Ruslana songs.
In his creative work Skarednov tries to develop a number of different directions simultaneously: vintage-romantic music, cynical IDM and experimental downtempo. So, 0:28 is not the only title that Roman stands behind of. In addition there are: ABC Galaxy (tuneful tracks with style allusions to the 80s) and Snow Slow Party (the synthesis of classical piano texture and synthetic sound of a drum machine).
Listen to some music by Roman Skarednov:

A creature, brought into being on a whim of the mad scientist of ABC Galaxy. It was constructed in a laboratory setting from some primal material on a deep level of IDM. We mean, DNA.
A leisure dance of naked piano and gentle drum machine, which happens under a slow snowfall. Simple things are neatly assembled into beautiful compositions.
The three-sided compact disc, the album-test and the mental masseur. Instructions are included.
