Dmitry Evgrafov

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 with delicately evocative string arrangements and rich electronics. Completely self-taught, he 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’ was a particularly beautiful combination of luminous, contemplative piano rooted in a particular location and subtly enhanced with smeared tape manipulations.

Having been impressed enough to help out in the compiling of ‘Pereehali’ back in 2013, FatCat’s David Howell remained in touch with Dmitry and in early 2015 signed the composer to the 130701 imprint. Dmitry’s debut album for 130701, ‘Collage’, was released in October 2015. A year later, a digital EP, ‘The Quiet Observation’ was released, whilst Dmitry’s second 130701 album, ‘Comprehension Of Light’ was released in October 2017 to glowing reviews.

Besides his own music, Dmitry has worked as a sound designer / composer, writing bespoke music for a number of videos, reels, commercials, audiovisual installations and scores.  In summer 2015 he completed a degree course in sound design and is currently employed as a composer/ sound designer for a company making musical/ creative mobile apps aimed at children. He has worked on several soundtracks for film, including scoring two films for Russian director Vladimir Beck (‘Skinless’, 204; ‘Little Bird’, 2015), and Shadow Boxer‘ (2017) for Danish director Andreas Bøgglid Monies. Dmitry is also a co-founder and a composer of Endel, an app that generates ambient sound environments for personal and public spaces.

Fluid Radio have described Dmitry as “…a prodigious young talent hailing from Moscow, who imparts into his music a maturity which seems grounded by practice far beyond his years… one gets the impression that Dmitry Evgrafov will become an important contributor to his generation’s neo-classical movement.”
