Ivan Farmakovsky Pianist, composer, arranger

"Pianist Ivan Farmakovsky has an abstract approach to making music that reminds me of Wassily Kadinsky’s method of painting. Farmakovsky sprinkles his compositions in geometrical patterns and profound shapes that keep the music in a state of flux making his release Next To The Shadow a rolling film of changing currents from single-note strands to an array of vibrating flurries."
