Airto
Airto

Airto ambient project by Nikita Technov from Moscow. Since 2007, Nikita has been working in radio broadcasting as a sound engineer. That same year he began studies at the Faculty of Media Production and Sound Engineering at the institute. He was particularly interested in creation of incidental sounds, noise spaces and architectural acoustics. Later he decided to combine the accumulated experience of noise production with the musical component. The first full-length album was released in 2015 (Airto - Antennas and Аbove). Back then he was greatly influenced by Stanislav Lem's books, and the album was created with elements of space themes and ideas of intergalactic travel. A year later, a joint album was released with Alexander Smirnov (Airto meets Welcomeblack). During this period, Nikita traveled a lot, making noise recordings in the countries he visited.
The music of the project can be described as ambient, drone, experimental.
