Hello A.A.
it's j. citizen here from Blatant Propaganda - a small electronica label and zine in Australia. I recently received a package of CDs from you. They're terrific. We love them. Thank you very much. Unfortunately, I have misplaced the note you attached with them and hence, your e-mail address (I can't see it listed on the CDs!) Anyway, via e-mail I was just going to say how much we like the music and that we'll review them as soon as we can... we've got a lot of CDs in the pile to do, but we'll do some of yours early on.

PS - I also do several shows on local community radio 2XX98.3 FM in Canberra. Unfortunately my present specialist programs don't cater for international ambient music, but there are shows that do and I will bring your CDs to their attention. I'm sure they'll love them too.
all the best,
j. citizen

Hi Electroshock,
I found your site through an e-mail from Martin Fumarola. We (Digital Music Archives) have a similar site to yours in that we are promoting electro-acoustic music in the UK.
I liked your site a lot, and wondered whether you would be interested in any links or other co-operation between us.
Best wishes,
Richard Gonski
director digital Music Archives

I compose electronic music; I was just curious.

Hi Artemiy,
Just checked your web site to see if the it was active yet, and what a surprise I had. Very impressive indeed. Congratulations!
One observation - the photos took a very long time to download, I think you might find they need to be optimised and the file size shrunk to make them faster.
Keep well - will email you soon.
John @ The Borderland

Tell Artemiy hello from Dwight Loop and Earwaves.
My new has music streaming from him on it!!!
I love Electroshock and didn't know there was a website.
Great one.
Tell him to continue to send. I have not replied on his latest releases he mailed me from Russia.
Thanks. Dwight

Hello Artemiy,
Thanks for referring me to your site.
It's a real pleasure to listen your father's "Waltz for Maria" while driving streets of night Los Angeles.
Love his music and hope to get familiar with yours.
Anna Korsun

I am a great fan of Artemiev's music and Tarkovsky's films.
I've been listening to nothing else on my stereo ever since. It is fantastic!
Tell Mr. Artemiev I greatly admire his music and that it is absolutely wonderful. I'm going to play his music for all my friends and family here in the states. Who knows, maybe you'll have MORE people bugging you to buy the CD too!
Take care and thanks again!

Hello Mr. Artemiev,
We've just received your package of five CD's here at CFUV Radio in Victoria, BC, Canada. Thank you so much. We are a small but, certainly, growing population of electroacoustic music lovers here in Victoria. We have a number of programmes at the station that feature electroacoustics and avant garde music. We are all big fans of yourself and artists on your label. Congradulations and thanks again,
Louise Bradbury.

Greetings. Your site looks fine. Just received your 5 new CDs. I'll listen to them over the Holidays and will write more fully then but I wanted you to know that they arrived safely. I also received 3 disks last winter which I'm sure I acknowledged although you apparently didn't get my letter. I'll write later after I've had a chance to hear your new releases.
All best wishes,
Charles Bestor

Hello A. A:)
I just found your site in the new music power links. I am a German artist, play in 3 different projects electronic music. So when you are interested on some very strange experimental pieces, shall you visit my website: there you will find some mp3 from 2 of my projects, and some art-work, I did the last years. But when you like the music, write me a small note. .. this is not music for the masses or for the mainstream, this would never be like this, but check it out. unfortunately I can"t hear some of you music, but I've checked some other sides, may you have some music-files there...Greetings from Germany..
Tri Phase

Thanks for very nice surprise - 5CDS. I like very much music and graphic. Very good work. I will present them in my radio program. What about our project? Last week I send you my CD-R. Mery Chrismas and Happy New Year!
Miroslaw Rajkowski

Dear Artemiy. It is from your "Five Mystery Tales of Asia" that I hear your wonderful music. I have all the VI volume of the electroacoustic series and recently I bought Stanislav Kreitchi's "ANSiana" CD and I found it incredible. I would like to know more about the Russian electronic scene and above all about the ANS synthesizer. If it is possible send me a photo of it.
Have a nice 2001 to you, to the great Edward and to you wonderful Electroshock label.

Wade Hatchel.

Artemiy, want to thank you for your music I heard it in my car while drying to San Franciso. It was broadcasted by one of our local FM stations. Great music. I'm a classical music lover and I must confess that I don't like electronic music at all but this touched me so deeply that made me ordered your CDs via your American distributor. I ordered all. You are a very talented person. Good luck to you and thank you for your music.
Tom Richman

Dear Mr. Artemiy Artemiev. I heard you music over the radio several days ago and was amazed. Ordered "Point of Intersection", "Five Mystery Tales of Asia" and "Forgotten Themes". Hope to receive them within next three days. I have a personal ask to you. Would you please be so kind as to sign CD-booklets for me? I became a real fan of your music. I promise to order all CDs with your brilliant works till the end of February and propagandize your activity among my friends. I'm sure they'll order your CDs.
Robert De Loroshe

It looks like "Electroshock" and Artemiy Artemiev won our unlucky president race. Tell Artemiy I was listening to his music over LA radio during past two weeks (every day!!!) and I'm not tired of it. Believe it or not but I bought his two CDs ("Cold" and "Forgotten Themes") and I don't think that it was the last purchase of his CDs. I'll order more soon.
Richard Rilly

A friend of mine from UK *(Trevor Knightsmith) told me about your company. I am interesting in making contacts with you. I am a manager of bulgarian world music and new-age band "Lot Lorien"
Hope to hear you soon.
Iasen Kazandjiev

Hello Artemiy:
Just wanted to say your latest batch of CDs totally rock! Am listening to DOWNLOAD THE GOD and it is just awesome! Your label is one of the brightest lights in the sky of modern music and I only wish I was a millionaire so I could get the word out even more.
If you're a websurfer and are reading this guestbook, buy the CDs on this label. They are unbelievable!
Gotta run and fix supper for Kathryn (she's teaching tonight), but wanted to say "Hi" and publically acknowledge the great work you're doing with Electroshock!
Stay as cool as you are!
Bill Binkelman ("Wind and Wire")

Hello there, my wife and I are huge fans of Artemiy Artemiev, we hope that things are going well for him, a friend of ours turned us on to his great music, we have most taped, but we would love to get in touch with him.

Several years ago I thought that Russia gave the world only four things: Vodka, Perestroyka, Glastnost and Matrioshka. Now I can add "Electroshock Records" to this list. Thank you friends!

My name is Lorenzo Dorelli. I'm working for an Italian Encyclopedia of Cinema, that will be published by the Istituto della Enciclopedia Italiana; particularly, I attend to music for film, writing and supervising biographies of composers and articles related to this field of cinema. Actually I'm writing the biography of E. Artemyev and I need some information, that i didn't find in your Web Site. Can you help me? These are the questions:
1. Where and When (day) was he born?
2. When did he accomplished his academic musical education at the Moscow Conservatoire?
It would come in very useful for me to get free some Artemyev's CD collection distributed by your label (The Odyssey". Soundtrack. - 1998; "Electroshock Presents: Electroacoustic Music. Vol. IV. Synthesiser ANS. 1964-1971". Electronic Music. - 1999; "Solaris, The Mirror, Stalker". Soundtracks. - 1999; "Electroshock Presents: Electroacoustic Music. Vol. I". Electronic music. - 1997 ; "A Book of Impressions". Electronic & electroacoustic music - 2000; "Music to N. Mikhalkhov's Films". Sound track. - 1995). Is it possible? Thank you very much. With kind regards.
Lorenzo Dorelli

Greetings Artemiy,

You are the best. We love you music & we want you to know that you are the only modern Russian composer available (and who are well-known) in our 3 big CD-stores in Glasgow. Thank you for your music. Your "Cold" is really cool. We bought all your 6 solo CDs & 2 collaboration projects. Everything sounds great, especially your "Forgotten Themes" and "Mysticism of Sound". Your "Five Mystery Tales of Asia" - is a classical CD of ambient music. Stay well and keep on making good music.
Jane & Tom Winslow

Dear Artemiy:

You came highly recommended by Rudy Carerra. I look forward to checking out some of your music.

Thank you very much for creating this site!
Since my very childhood I heard Edward Artemyev music and did remember it for the whole my life. Although having favorite pieces in my home CD collection was impossible until this day. Now for, God Sake, this will be mine at last. Thank you for making the music of my heart.

Greetings from Knoxville, Tennessee in USA. Looking forward to hearing your music.
Dig, Jay Nations

Just a line from Edward's music lover!

Thank you very much for your sound-mysticism. You are a real magician. Your music helps my patients to cure from their diseases. I'm a doctor in Northern California and I'm very grateful to you for helping me with my work. I tried a lot of electronic music stuff but couldn't reach such positive effect as your music does on my patients. I bought all your CDs and waiting for your next solo and collaborative projects. Sincerely,

Dear Artemij! Hi!
This is Vladimir Djambazov - a composer of electroacoustic music from Sofia, Bulgaria. I think, you remember our short correspondence some years ago. I just visited your site and -congratulations! I am proud that a composer from slavic country became that popular in the world!
Don't stop writing! Go ahead!
Friendly, Vladimir

Last week I heard a cut from "Dreams in Moving Spaces" played on the program, Music for a New Age, on the public radio station of Michigan State University. I was absolutely blown away by the cut which was as high energy and electric a music as I have ever heard. Trying to find a place to buy this CD. Keep up the awesome artistry!!

hello Artemiy,
Just finished to read your home pages. it's great and very informative. wish you good luck in your east trip.

nice to have found a web site in Russia about electroacustic music. I'm an electroacustic composer from the south of France. I make some concerts in France and in others countries in Europe. I studied composition with Denis Dufour, member of the INA GRM and I show my creations next October in Paris. This autumn I'll do some projects in Kiev, Ukraine and I certainly will come to Moscow, and if you like we could contact each other.
With respect, Berangere Maximin, composer.

Dear Artemiy,

How was your trip in Mongolia?

I recently recieved an email from Artemiy Artemiev which had been forwarded to the 'SILENCE' [john cage] mailing list, in regards to the proposed electronic music festival in Petersburg for the coming summer.
Unfortunetly, the forwarded email did not contain an email by which I could reply to Mr. Artemiev. If someone could supply me with the appropriate address, it would be much appreciated!

Dear Friends,
our filmgroup is on the process of finishing an experimental feature film and we are still looking for international musicians for experimental and electronical music for the soundtrack.
Musicians from Germany, UK, USA and Australia have agreed to join this project. The film is a collage out of found footage only, stolen images from TV, hired videos, amateurfilms and artvideos worked over with digital effects and manual destruction of the filmsurface. It is meant as a comment on the world of media and on the copyright discussion.
Since around a dozen of musicians are supposed to work on different parts of the Film there will be about 5 min for each...
I am sorry to say we cannot offer any money, but every musician involved has the right to use the film for own screenings and to keep the profits from them...
I don't know if you are interested to work under the conditions described above so I would be happy about a reply from you...
Kind regards from Germany
P.S. check out our website for more infos about us and our work!

A very informative site. Congratulations.
I would have liked to have seen a complete catalogue of your product - in both CD and Lp form - for reference.
Gregory Young

Wonderful site, great music. Yesterday bought your CDs and was amazed! You are the best!

Hello electroshock,
Just visited your amazing site. Great job. Keep on doing this.
A lot of greetings from Cologne/Germany and all the best wishes for your future work.

Several years ago, a friend gave me the double LP of Tarkovsky film music by Edward Artemiev on the Torso Kino Label. After the first few bars, I knew I would play all four sides without a pause.
It was so fresh, original and profound. Now I discovered this website by chance.
Is it possible to buy the Electroshock CDs directly in Petersburg? I'm in Petersburg quite often as my wife is from there. Is there any information on the ANS synthesizer available on the web? Does the instrument still exist? Is it true that Manuel Goettsching will perform during the next festival?
I think I will be in Petersburg this summer and would really like to hear him (and also the rest of the festival, of course). I will probably also give a concert in Petersburg - on the Sound Ways festival in November - but, alas, purely acoustical.
Markus Berzborn

Hi Artemiy:
Sorry that I couldn't get in touch with you before but I was in the middle of many trips to America and to my natal Argentina, where unfortunately my mother died 4 months ago. So I was late in sending you my dossier! I am afraid that now is too late for my participation in your wonderful, but in that case we could try for next year.
Anyway I am offering my contacts here for promoting your festival and please do not hesitate if you need some help from my side. I will released a double album with Anthony Phillips next month and I am rehearsing also with my group, including to ladies singing, in a very symphonic-cosmic approach.
Please keep in touch! All my best to you. Sincerely

This is an excellent site..
I'd like to stay in contact with you from Guatemala my site is about history and evolution of electronic and experimental music
Juan Morales

Dear folks, imaging me, grown up in western Germany, watching east german TV in my childhood. I strongly remember these "strange" electronic sounds in some of those old, in the Fifteeth and Sixtieth made soviet space films that where so much refreshing different from all US productions. I was faszinated!!
Keep on trucking

I have a large flat 256m2 in Barcelona for sale !!!
Why tell you? Because I looked to see where you represent electroshock and you have nothing in Barcelona!

It is a high flat 7th floor (lots of sunshine), there are 2 elevators (lifts), and there is no zoning (meaning there is a mix of businesses and housing in the building (20 flats total).

Dear Edward Artemiev,
I am looking for "Sergey" waltz from Michalkov's movie Urga (Under Volcanoes of Manchukuo). It is very emotional waltz for me. Unfortunately I am unsuccessful so far. Do you have this waltz for example in mp3 format? Or is it some CD with this waltz?

Thank you for this wonderful looking upcoming festival! I wish I could become involved, but the Stockhausen courses are calling me back this year. I hope next year things will be different and I'll be able to attend. Good luck to you!
Rod Stasick

I have just come across your website and saw that you have a festival of new electro acoustic music. I was wondering who you program and how you go about programming. certain works. I have a work I have recently completed and was wondering if you would consider it for performance/diffussion.

I've just bought your CD Cold, and it sounds amazing.
I have read about the festival in St. Petersburg, and i would like to come. I have some practical questions considering the prize, and where to buy the tickets for the concerts and do I need to reserve seats???
Best regards

Hello, my name is Hector Gonzalez Molina.
I live in Canary Islands (Spain), beside West of North Africa. All my life I am very interesting about your music, and, which is my surprise when suddenly I found IT, YOUR MUSIC, I can't believe it.
I am always interested about Russian culture. When I saw the film SOLARIS I was 23 years old, and now I am 40 years old. Now I have the sense and the security there are many fundamental question about the human being condition are surrending your music and the THARKOVSKY message; like in any other great artistic creation.

Greetings Artemiy
I have just visited your home pages and its great and very amazing to see.
Congratulations and greetings from belgium.
Marcel Pallemaerts

Dear Artemiy,
I'm a professor of music and host a show on the University's radio, and I like very much the works of your father, they inspire a lot and I hope to inspire and teach my students from the music of Solaris, Stalker and Zerkalo. It's impossible to me to get that CD in Chile, could you send me a promo CD? I'm very interested in your work too, so if you want send me a promo CD of your own work too - I'm pretty sure it's at least great. Please e-mail me.
Gustavo Guzman

Dear Artemiy,
many congratulations for your Site! I just dropped in today and I see here a major interest in being updated about your activity. It will be interesting to have more information about your activity (maybe a contact through my e-mail).
I see also interesting for you to be informed about my recent CD "The Aforesaid" (col legno 20077; including five of my works for conventional instruments and electronics. I will be glad to send you a complimentary copy of it. Maybe we can find grounds for future collaboration. Thank you very much, best wishes,

Dear Artemiy Artemiev:
Your festival looks great! Thinking I would not be able to attend, I did not yet submit anything for programming consideration. As it turns out, I will be able to be there from July 21-25. As a result, I would be very pleased if I am able to participate in any way---either by presenting a lecture or a work on a concert. I suspect that the program is now filled but wanted to contact you in the event that any change in program frees up a void that you would like to fill. I look forward to hearing from you and wish you the best as you prepare for this exciting festival.
with warmest regards,

One song from a first demo was on Ronald"s DVN Broadcasting Radio show last year and Ronald gave me your address. About my music. Elrond is combination of new age music from 70-ties, soundtrack stile and symphonic gothic music. I wonder, is there any possibilities to contact You and send You my demos ?

After checking your label's website, I have been very curious about the music you create.
I remember the soundtrack your father made for Solaris and it's very interesting.
I wonder how can I get some of your new music and some other new musicians of your label (unknown here in Uruguay).
Thank you for advanced, and waiting your answer.

dear artemiy artemiev:
I've noticed your website in May, and since then the announcement of the festival to be held in October's been ringing in my head. I would be very interested to offer you some of our electro-improvisers and electroacousticians for a festival, but the website has no contact address.
If you are interested for some of our musicians to participate in your festival, please send me a short notice about the possibilities, so we could make something going...

Hi there!
I'm searching for Artemiev's soundtrack of SOLARIS & STALKER for years. now I just found ELECTROSHOCK while surfing the www. good people you are to release this fine music! but it's so damn hard to get it here in Germany. any chance for me to get the CD? it's unfortunately not in the CUE Records catalogue. I'd be delighted if you could help me.
By the way: maybe someone of you likes to lend an ear to my CD "die schostakowitsch-mission" on my website

Some time ago I left a message in this guestbook about an experimental collaborative feature film. It is just finished and worldwide 18 electronical musicians worked on the soundtrack. Some contacts were made through this website. We just had the premier of "FAITES VOS JEUX", a timetravel in form of found-footage-filmcollage (stolen images only), audience and press was excited. Now (august 02) we are trying to get several film-prints to start a distribution and send the film to festivals and alternative cinemas worldwide. If anyone is interested or can help with contacts or in any other way, please contact us. Find out more about our film-group and this film project under: (

Hi Artemiy,
Just read about your site in HOS catalog (small world, huh?). What a great joy to find out there's someone evangelizing electronic music not only in the States or Europe, but also here in Russia. The site is awesome, one of the best I've seen among the electronic music sites out there, congrats. My best wishes to you and all the people at Electroshock. Please, keep up the good work.

Hi! Do you know if Electroshock ever took delivery of a EMS Synthi100 Electronic Music Synthesizer during the early 1970s? Thanks!

Hi, saw your link on the ambient labels on astreaux world and thought you may be interested in what we are doing. This is a really nice track that I think would work very well with your label called "from master wong." All the artist info is at under listen. The artist is a buddhist master and mixes all his tracks with buddhist mantras and female vocals. If you check out listen on our site and like any of the tracks you can e-mail me and are welcome to license any of them or sign the artist up. Thank you.

I have followed the work of E. Artemiev for 30 years and have managed to get vinyl copies of "Siberiada", "Moods", "Ode", "Metamorphosis" & "Warmth of Earth", however I did have to visit Russia to buy them! But I now look forward to buying CD's of his work, and his son and others.
Thanks to Electroshock...

Dear Artemiy,
"Electroshock Records" has become a very helpful source for my radio shows on "-1", the nationwide cultural broadcasting station of Austria.- After three shows last year I started 2002 with "Electronic Music of the World" with works of Galante, Nunez, Ruohomaki, Gleisberg, Fumarola and Jorge Antunes" in my show on Jan,3rd. - Next I will present from the archive tapes of synthesizer ANS pieces by Edward Artemiev, Gubaidulina, Denisov, Schnittke, Kallosh and Kreitchi on Friday, Feb,14th from 23.05 till 24h GMT. So you will imagine, that "Electroshock Records" is a real treasure to learn about electronic music from Russia and all over the world, of actual creativity, as in the connotation with history. So I wish you the best to continue this important work.

Hope you have now found strawberry tea in Moscow.

Hi. I once saw from the TV a soviet document about the soviet army (probably made in the 80's or very early 90's). I liked very much of the ultracool techno music of the document. I'm wondering if somebody out there could inform me more about the soviet-era techno music.
Big thanks for the great site!

Hi, I am a composer of electroacoustic and acoustic music from Colombia (South America). I have lived in the United States half of my life (around 24 yrs). I would like to know what is going on in Russia's electroacoustic world. Festivals and CD releases or calls for works for festivals or CDs releases. I wouldn't mind working in collaborations perhaps to create multimedia projects or other type of projects.

I'm a fan of Edward Artemiev's Music and actually I'm searching for his original motion picture soundtrack of "Soleil trompeur  Burnt by the Sun" (Director Nikita Michalkov - Auvidis France / THREE T Production).

Thank you in advance. My best regards

Hallo Mr. Artemiy. Congratulation for our work and for your website. Portugal is a very poor country in electroacoustic music. all the best.

My name is Steini and you mention that there are over 368 big and 500 small electronic music events in the world, can you help me find out what all these are? I am currently creating a data base for the Icelandic music community and this would be a huge help.

Great to see the Russian power of elktroszene. Great stuff!!!

Hi I'm from England and I'm a electronic artist. Can you send me your address to send demo's... I want to be on your label........

My name is Martha Abello and I am the lead singer from Perfect Dark, an electronic rock band that was founded in 1996, and though after some member changes it is active to this day. Its components are four guys and myself which together cover the most important parts of a band, with two guitars, a bass, a drummer and an electronic technician. For many years now we have been singing life in various places, as well as formed part of the opening act for a well known band here in Spain. And after such period of time we are now interested on the next step, but for that we need a producer... I am really interested in your company because it covers most of our needs. I found it through Google. If you are interested in our band, and you would like to know more about our future projects please write to me.
Thanks for your time
Martha Abello

Just read the texts in your site. I was amazed by your perception of electronic music.. Just matches my dreams and quests too. I am an electronic composer and wish to send you my demo to be part of your community. Could you send me the essential info?
Thank you!
Rovithis Emmanouel (mosQto)

Hello Artemiy,
I am a TV- and radio-producer from the north of Germany and I received some of your newest CDs today. Thank you very much! I am very impressed by the wonderful compositions and also by your highly informative website. We will be doing several shows with a special focus on your work. As we have a strong Russian community in Kiel in the north of Germany we will also invite some students and professors of music to combine knowledge about the music with information about Russia. All the best with your excellent work and I will write to you soon,

A big HELLO and Congratulations from the Netherlands. Great news that your fine releases are now available in Holland. Received your packet in good order and again, real fine tunes for the radio show.
All the best.

Hi from Istanbul, Turkey. My name is Deniz Pinar.
I'm doing a radio show here in Istanbul, on lounge-space age pop called "The Elevator". I present conceptual audio-video performances at different venues like Godet, The Red Room, Dulcinea etc. At the last Istanbul Biennal, I was on the decks with DJ Leenus and performers from Sweden on a project called "People's Park". I'm a writer and content provider at "Yeni Muzik" and "Superonline-Music" web sites. Written articles on "Blaxploitation", "The Secret History of Electronic Music", "Space Age Pop-Exotica", "Moog and Analog Snythesizers", "Bossa Nova-Electronica", "DJs and Club Culture in Istanbul". Interviewed DJ Crush, Kyoto Jazz Massive, Jazzanova, Jay Jay Johanson, Adam F, Christian McBride. I've contributed to an album called "Hava Narghile, 1966-1975", a Turkish obscure psychedelic compilation released by Dionysus Records in America. I'm working on an obscure album of Turkish lounge, easy and funky tracks compilation from 60's and 70's. Wishing to be released on a foreign label and probably remixes of the tracks coming afterwards. I may send you demo CDs of some amateur Turkish artists and groups if you're interested. Most of them experimenting Turkish music in a modern way. I would be pleased if you would send me any demo records or CDs of your label, so that I could use them on my radio show and at my DJ sets. Please let me know, If any of your artists or friends come and visit Istanbul. You're welcome for an alternative city tour and maybe staying at my place or my friends'. I may also find a cool place to perform for you. I may call myself a vinyl junkie. So, I held an exhibition on record fetish at Kargart Gallery, Istanbul. The motto of the exhibition was "Bad Taste". It was about Turkish record covers on the concepts: "Turkish Underground", "Belly Dance", "Turkish Kitsch", "Comedy", "Fairy tales", Turkish garage-beat-psychedelia and a room dedicated to the Turkish pop diva Ajda Pekkan. I would like to take the exhibition abroad very much. I'm also looking forward to present an audio-video performance abroad. I'm a fan of B-movies and a collector of movie posters. Especially the ones printed in Turkey with a different graphic image. If you're a fan of Blaxploitation, horror, kitch, camp, B-movies, science fiction, exploitation, monster movies, spy-Bond, Hong Kong movies and want Turkish posters for them, please let me know. I'll do my best to find the posters you need. I'm especially a fan of 60's and 70's Turkish B-movies. Did you know that there are Turkish versions of Star Trek, Star Wars, Exorcist, Dracula and Tarzan? I use some loops of them at my audio-visual performances. Please, visit my website including a top 10 of my DJ sets, some concepts of performances, and a strange records gallery (Sorry, this is just the beginning for the gallery, I'll add Turkish covers later on).
Here's a playlist of my radio show "The Elevator":

    - The cat (Lalo Schifrin)
    - I wanna be evil (Aertha Kitt)
    - Fantasy in orbit (Tom Dissevelt)
    - Mucho muchacho (Esquivel)
    - La cumparsa (Elsa Popping)
    - Devil-s witchcraft (Les Baxter)
    - The Avengers theme (Laurie Johnson)
    - Oppressione (Bruno Nicolai)
    - Christine (Miss X)
    - LSD (The Duke of Burlington)
    Hope to hear from you soon,
    Deniz Pinar.

You are already aware of the "Qwartz Electronic Music Awards" that will take place in Paris. Some little changes have been done, they will now happen at the end of 2004.
Here's some news to keep you informed:
Last Tuesday night was held at the Triptyque in Paris the press conference followed by a night with ASTROBOTNIA (Rephlex). It was a real success, thanks to your enthusiasm and your support! Today, 400 independent labels of 20 countries have subscribed to the Qwartz. Therefore Qwartz will go beyond its initial European project for a world wide event.
Qwartz becomes :
"Qwartz, Electronic Music Awards". The handing over will take place by the end of 2004. The event is pushed back to the end of 2004, and the candidatures are opening on the productions 2003 - June 2004.
Concerning your label:
For precision, anyone who has their music published and edited (not necessarily commercialised) is eligible to the Qwartz for their productions made in 2003 up to June 2004. You can now register on line via the identification form. The selection of the prizes through a personal file is still under development. I'll let you know when it is ready. Also, the dead line for sending materials is deferred to June 19th 2004 and not in February, as it is mentioned in the site (update need to be done, sorry). We'll keep you informed as when to start sending us your materials.
One last thing: if your label registers its artists, those cannot register themselves individually because this would doubled data. It is important that the label along with their artists enrol together!
For information: Qwartz will be present at the MIDEM forum in Cannes. We will have a little reception on the electronic village (Allee 01, level -1), on 26th January at 18:15 PM. If you or your distributor happened to be there, please join us. We will be meeting electronic labels and world wide specialised press. Qwartz is a project for independent labels and artists .
All the best,

Dear Artemiy Artemiev,
I am interested in promoting your music on my specialist ambient/chill/electronic web radio station - Radio Tribulation. Please e-mail me and we can discuss things further.
Kevin (Trib) Salt

If I send you a completed master and pre-press files for the cover, and if you approve it for your label, what are your basic terms? Who pays for what and how are the revenues split? Thanks, just the basic info. please, while I consider where to submit.

I find your website and label ( by the Darker Than The Bat radioshow ( that play our songs, and I decide to contact you because I'm a french writer and composer in a band called SHED. We have auto produced our first album "Electronic Tales" in a electronic-pop style and we are looking for a label. I invite you to visit the new version of our website : We would like participating on the next Electroshock compilation, so where Can I send to you our first CD and some new demos ??

A great surprise to find a website from Russia that dedicates some big space to talk about an extraordinary artist like Edward Artemiev and, of course, his son Artemiy. I became a fan after I heard a cassette-tape of MOODS, an album I could only hunt thanks to the magic of the internet last year after a long time waiting. I not only want to congrat you for the interesting website but would also like to suggest you try to reissue MOODS on CD, first because I think the music quality and range covers a wide period of time with Artemiev's varied possibilities for the music for the small and big screen. Besides, this is such an obscure item I think many more people should find the chance to discover. Thank you for the great releases and hope you can let more and more people hear the fantastic music emerging from Russia all the time, since they days of my ever admired Stravinsky, Tchaikovsky, Shostakovich and...oh, well....they're so many!
All the best from
Santiago, CHILE

Hi. here Diego from Spain and a Latvian friend discovered this label to me. I'm 23, and I'm starting to listen the early Soviet electronic music (I'm in love with concrete music, stockhausen, raymond scott, xenakis, and antique electronic stuff). I got Solaris from the great Tarkovsky time ago, but now I finally got the Artemiev's Soundtrack and I can't stop listening it. I also love a lot the "ELECTROSHOCK PRESENTS: - ELECTROACOUSTIC MUSIC VOL IV - ARCHIVE TAPES - SYNTHESISER ANS (1964-1971) - 1999" compilation, it's amazing good pioneer stuff in the vco's world and the sound of the ANS is totally beautiful for me. Some weeks ago I bought an Aelita Soviet synth, and I'm definitely surrender to the things you've got there. All my admiration and gratitude to that great works you release.
Finally, my software music instruments are quite inspired in the soviet instruments artwork:

Hello. I found your site after watching "The Odyssey" again. Congratulations on the Emmy that it's no wonder you won! The music truly complemented and brought out more of the action and the emotions. The work is a wonderful experience. Thank you. Can you please recommend other recordings (including by other composers) like the music used in the romantic scenes with Circe (played by Bernadette Peters)

All the best

Tony Johnson

Hello AA !

I am originally from St-Petersburg but now live in London. I was study in SPB conservatoire, now started to compose electronic ambient music. I just wanted to say, i always loved music from Tarkovskiy films, but I didn't know anything about composer. I am so proud that Russian electronic music industry is continue to grow !!! I would like to listen to some samples of your music online, that would be great !

Dear Artemiy,
Thanks for all the great music of all around the world. I will be pleased to broadcast it in Austrian nationwide radio OE1. The only thing I need, is to know something more about the album "Antarctica". Please, get me some information about it. Many thanks in advance,
Sincerely yours
Giselher from Vienna

Hello A. A. in Russia,
Just marvelous to listen to your music. I have been fascinated by electroacoustic music for years. This initiative of yours to publish it on internet is most praiseworthy. May the rest of the world follow in your footsteps. Please give me some more hints about Russian electronic music, CDs and alike. Best wishes from a 58 years old listener in Sweden.

Good day (my birthday 5 April!) to you ARTEMIY! I am really enjoying this site to feel the Russian Artist Passion that you have brought to the internet.

Hey, I write electronic music in my studio on Long Island and think you'll be interested in hearing it. I also write classical pieces and all kinds of other things. If you could please send an address that I could send a demo to that would be great. Thank you for your time.

I would like to send you some of my music, if you're interested. Could you e-mail me your post address?

Thanx, Frank Schwinn

hi there at Electroshock!
I'm interested in your items, but couldn't figure out where to order them. is there a list of currently available CDs, the Tarkovsky soundtracks and the Electroacoustic compilations are highly interesting to me, being a composer myself. Please send me some info.

Good luck.

Hello! My name is Matteo Torcinovich, I'm writing from Venice, Italy. I'm 39 years old and it's 20 years I'm working with music, like DJ in some alternative clubs of Venice and now also in a independent radio with a program of international music, most alternative, noise, punk, industrial, electronic, indie and more. I'm interested to receive all kind of materials and news from your label.

Thank you very much
Matteo Torcinovich

Shalom to Edward,

Just wanted to inform you about a project related to your work. mystified and swamps up nostrils and seetyca joined forces for doing an alternative score to the Tarkovsky movie "Solaris". This way we pay credit to the work of Andrei Tarkovsky and even Edward Artemiev

Best wishes to you and Electroshock.

G'day from Adelaide, South Australia! Very nice and useful website.


Hi Electroshockers and especially Artemiy!
I am very impressed about your international guestbook! Great every time! I'm looking forward seeing you personal in spring! It will definitely be very interesting for me, and its a honour for me that you want to talk about releasing. I just got in contact with a duo in Poland (electronic music/visuals) called Palsecam, they are also very creative and original. I think there are a lot of great artists in eastern Europe and Russia. I have to come to Russia to check out some festivals I think! All the best, take care

Frank Schwinn

Dear Artemiy!
