|The idea of this experimental music project, later named AUTISM, emerged
in the latter half of the 80's when two school friends, Vadim Militsin and
Dmitry M.U., lived in Leipzig (Germany). Instead of going to school they
played home sessions using metal pipes, pots and "Blasinstrument Koko"
in the hope of producing something like "techno-pop''.
In 1995, both DM-fans came back to that idea when they had some money to
buy their first ''adult'' keyboard. In the middle of that year, they
recorded a demo-album at home, entitled "The Spiral Twist", which primarily
tried to fuse the spirits of techno-pop, trance and Coil. The duo's second
work the same year was the mini-album "Analogue Hallucinogen" under the
name of ON THE EDGE - a fully experimental project with ambient elements.
In 1996, AUTISM mastered computer technology and began writing music using
various sound blasters. Now the whole of the duo's equipment consists of a
PC and two old Soviet analogue synthesizers. Using these devices, AUTISM
recorded "Hypno-pop" (1996), "Ultramarine" and "Membrana"
(both - 1997).
AUTISM makes a couple of live performances each month in different clubs
around Minsk, and was named the best live Belarusian electronic group of
1997. In autumn 1996, AUTISM played several concerts in Eindhoven
The concept for AUTISM is "emotionally coloured" electronic music with no style frames. "Membrana" , the duo's latest work, is a mixture of trip-hop, ambient, blues, new age and jungle with elements of oriental and Indian ethnic music.
