life on paper is a story about some aspects of my life: the sunrise through the window, the singing of birds in the early morning, and the morning sky. The sounds samples were recorded near my house between January-April 2012.

"Self-taught composer, Vitaly Beskrovny can be counted among the many neo-classical experimenters of East-European origin. Rejecting academic language, the Ukrainian artist prepares a proposal that mixes minimalist piano and electronic manipulations, drawing inspiration from the natural charm and fleeting movements of the soul. This is what happens in 'Life On Paper', the result of introspection and observation of everyday life, translated into the world of sparse piano notes, wheezing and dense saturation, arching into the seabed distorted or, more often, to fade into widespread ambience, not without a certain romance punctuated by echoes and austere tones."

Translated from Italian and published in April 2013 in: musicwontsaveyou.com/2013/04/12/vitaly-beskrovny-life-on-paper/
