Music shapeshifts from deep & dubby to trancey or more agressive techno, dubtech, electro, tribal rhythms or ambient. It’s not style that is important, but a general feel or character of sound flow that can be summed up as ‘hypno’ or ‘liminal techno’ – techno that borders or merges with other genres.

Main music projects: Pavel Ambiont & Nieviadomy Artyst.

Works with Belarusian promo groups Foundamental Network and

Organizer of Force Carriers techno label.

Recent collaborators include: VJ Solar Olga, Alexei S4DS, Parametric and VJ Michał Mierzwa.

The cooperation with Unsound Festival has led to work with UK dubstep producer Pinch with whom Jellybean / Poison / Remedy (12″) were released – and to playing with multi-instrumentalist Artem Atrashevsky (B_twisted) in a dub/downtempo duo Nerdy Dubz.

Works at European Humanities University (Vilnius, LT) teaching courses on Contemporary Music Cultures and Creative Industries.
