Dmitry Evgrafov is a hugely talented young Moscow-based pianist / composer / multi-instrumentalist. Having studied Sound Design in Moscow, Dmitry’s music blends intimate piano parts with delicately evocative string arrangements and rich electronics, bringing to mind the work of contemporary artists such as Goldmund or Nils Frahm (with whom Dmitry has performed live) whilst retaining roots in the minimalism of the likes of Arvo Pärt or La Monte Young and classical stalwarts like Ludivico Einaudi and Michael Nyman.
Completely self-taught (he has never attended any music class), Dmitry began to play music from the age of fourteen, starting out on guitar before quickly moving onto piano. Between 2011 – 13 he released an EP and two albums, the first of these arriving at the age of just seventeen. Largely self-released online with next to no promotion, the most recent of these ‘records’, ‘Pereehali’ is a particularly beautiful combination of luminous, contemplative piano rooted in a particular location and subtly enhanced with smeared tape manipulations.
