I/DEX (Vitaly Harmash) is a natural born musician and sound designer, searching for sounds from early childhood. Having previously released music under Harmash, Mystique and Speculum, he started to make analogue music since 1993 using synths, microphone and drum machines, then using field recordings and radio noises, then Sony PlaystationTM, and now a laptop. His works get an approval of leading musicians and European music zines.
In 2002 Vitaliy Harmash (i/dex) and Andrey Savitsky (hhtp) exchanged their records for future collaboration. Tracks and sounds were taken from Andrey’s albums «Forming» and «Wave weavers». Vitaliy mixed up and alchemized them, and now, eight years later recollected this collaborative work. As a result, this entrancing mini-album shaped out.
