Ligovskoï is the project of Nikolaï Azonov and Valerio Selig, based in Paris and Brussels. Formed in 2010 the pair create experimental soundscapes that shapeshift between ambient and drone. Using field recordings in addition to acoustic instruments and synthesisers to create atmospheric tracks.
Their live shows showcase their use of A/V technology creating an immersive experience for their audience taking them on a journey of deep contemplation.
In 2011 they contributed to the 'Outland' compilation, a project from Parisian label Silicate based on the 1983 science-fiction film by Peter Hyams and have released an album on Kyoto based imprint Ilya. Their second project for DEMENT3D, the 'Mana' EP, was released today.
