In this World the Music plays ©
Hi! My name is Arkady Kuznetsov. I`m very glad to see you here.
When I was 8 years old I took notice of a music in my mind, which I had never heard before. After four years my parents gave me my first PC as a gift. It had a television screen instead of a monitor and it loaded programs from magnetic tapes. Really, it was the freak of technology! Using it I learned to write the first programs and my music, which was rather far even from the 8 bits standard.
I was 16 when I became familiar with DAW (Digital Audio Workstation). At that time I had my PC with the Intel Pentium processor. It was Cakewalk – Audio Pro 9 and with the help of it I started to write my compositions, to make minuses, music arrangements, to get to know the basic elements of mixing and mastering. And so the music became “the blood of my soul”.
From that time to this day I`m never totally satisfied with my work and I believe that it is right. Perfection has no limits and one must develop always. In the beginning I could think the point is that I had no high-quality equipment, but I realized soon that in the final analisys I had the lack of knowledge, experience and… comprehension of taste! Yes, we often don`t take it into account. My taste was not bad, but I understood it badly and I developed it hardly.
However, after the accident which had happened with me and several days of coma in the reanimation section I learned to understand the taste, to hear the sound, the music from different points, to hear this way, which I could not before. I felt that there are very tasty sounds and their combinations, elements of arrangement and composition and there are different ones too. I understood the principle of Contrast and Measure, which is the basis of all around us. It turned out that the music is more many-sided, that I had believed before.
And nowadays I don`t stop to learn and to improve myself in technical, theoretical and emotional questions. I work in this sphere more than 16 years: I write music, arrangements, poems and songs, doing mixing and I always seek something new and interesting in the art of composition, arrangement and sound engineering. During this time I`ve worked as a sound technician in 2 sound recording studios and 3 television channels and I`ve taken a course of singing. So I choosed my way.
Studying at Technical University and Music College, I developed the technical and creative sides of my inner world. Some of my works could be heard on several radio show and in a number of night clubs. They buy my works abroad now. Also I cooperate with musicians and help them to reach the high-quality sound of their works.
I hope you like my works and become useful.
I wish you success!
