I was born on March 16, 1987, in Minsk. In 2000 I graduated from music school's accordion class and in 2005 from a percussion one. I've written electronic music since the age of 15, when I got a computer, but I'd composed music since early childhood. I've played in an orchestra, worked as an arranger, producer and DJ.
In 2011 I founded the Society For The Development Of New Music, the purpose of which was to develop and promote contemporary classical music. The members were composers and teachers of the Belarusian State Academy of Music. I've also founded the Belarus Modern Ensemble and initiated the Belarus Modern Orchestra, both of which were specialized in contemporary classical music of Belarusian composers. As a result of activities of the society have been organized concerts of Belarus Modern Orchestra and released albums:
Between 2012 and 2014 I was the sound engineer at an independent recording studio.
Today I use modular synth and software written by myself to write music. My genre lies somewhere between electronic, electroacoustic, contemporary classical and shoegaze. Here are some of my releases:
- Transliaciya (2016)
- Kasha-Malasha (2013)
- The Ranges Of Time-Space (2013) (with Anna Ivanova)
- Alexander Martovsky — M42 (2010)
- Alexander Martovsky — Libidakachańnie, martydavajna (2010)
I'm also an author and co-author of several generative and/or interactive artworks. Such as:
- [microscale] (2017) — an album which is generated in realtime from random Wikipedia articles
- 24h Solaris (2014) — a generative installation done with Almira Ousmanova, Natallia Nenarokomova and Ales Patapenka
- Posłuszny Piksel (2013) — an interactive installation done with Maciej Niewiński and Mark Włodzimirow for Bialystok’s Opera and Philharmonia
