Siberia's Aleph is Inspired By Little Blind Fish
A kid from a remote Siberian village grew up with classical violin training only to turn to electronic music. Now, at age eighteen, Aleph has begun releasing music.
His debut EP Haunt For A Little Blind Fish just dropped this month.
Over four tracks and a modest runtime, Aleph shows us how he looks at sound; through a prism of his own that might not have existed had he been from a major city, surrounded by beat culture.
Whether it’s a four-to-the-floor beat, or a slow dubstep groove, Aleph employs his own take entirely. His sense for classical music shines through in the icy melodies he composed in the tundra he calls home.
The theme of Haunt For A Little Blind Fish is a simple and beautiful one that makes you want to pick this kid’s brain…
“The music here is inspired by Astyanax Mexicanus, the impossible-to-catch cave fish that is born without eyes, so must rely on sound and the tiniest of vibrations to survive. Aleph sees a zen kind of connection it shares with the samurai, for whom elusiveness is also a way of life.”
