The fine art of Sergey Filatov has the power to produce visual experiences beyond the usual set of concepts and ideas. His abstract compositions have the quality of acheiropoieta - that is, they create an impression of having been created not by hands, but by a miracle. Paintings are formed spontaneously and expressively: according to the author, it all flows from the total presence in the moment. Layer after layer the paint is gradually applied to the surface of the canvas by prepared tools: brushes, rollers, spatulas, fabrics and other materials. As a musician Sergey Filatov works in experimental electro-acoustic music genres: Drone, Ambient, Noise, Glitch, Musique concrète, and others. In his live performances, Sergey Filatov uses home-made instruments as well as field recordings. Sergey Filatov is the author and creator of "Neti Neti” sound theatre. It is an original project based on the principles of psychoacoustics and art therapy. These art sessions often take place in subdued lighting, without any visual support, therefore the attention is fully focused on the music. The composer creates sound collages in realtime, immersing listeners in a peculiar sound environment and a meditative atmosphere. The effect of complete immersion in the space of sounds is achieved by a multi-channel speaker system that allows distinguishing and localising individual sound sources within the total soundscape (through spatial distribution and compositional movement). Sergey Filatov has been a regular participant at international festivals of experimental electronic music with his solo performances, as well as in collaborations with distinguished musicians.
