about

Alexander Piterskiy was born in the summer of 1986 in a place no longer on the map, Leningrad, USSR. (These days it's called Saint-Petersburg, Russia.) By the age of 13 he had gotten the idea that music could be his way of his life. Like many children that age he dreamed of having a guitar and a puppy, but he was getting high marks in physics and math, so his parents gave him only the puppy.

Luckily music stores are plentiful in Saint-Petersburg. Visiting them from time to time, Alexander taught himself to play simple melodies on every instrument he could find, though he shied away from trumpets. One day he was caught trying to steal an upright piano from the store. Alexander spent about five hours in the police station before being released because the officer decided he was not clever enough to constitute a serious menace to society. Having demonstrated the extent of his desparation to create music, his parents finally bought him his first bass guitar. It was not long before he acquired an acoustic guitar, harmonica, a bongo, accordion, flute and toy piano by Yamaha.

In 2008 Alexander graduated from Polytechnic University. He celebrated by buying an American Fender Stratocaster HSS and getting a tattoo of J.S. Bach playing the contrabass. By then the puppy had become a big dog and succumbed to illness.

Alexander's music has always been notable for the diversity of its styles and genres. He has composed for two performances by Eugene Radkevich, one of which, Solaris (based on Stanislaus Lem’s novel), can still be seen playing in a small community theater. He regards Nobuo Uematsu as his musical teacher and finds the original soundtrack to Final Fantasy VIII an unattainable ideal.

"Many times I was inspired simply listening to the music of Uematsu-san," he has said. "That's what I'd like to compose but cannot... so far". Since October of 2008 he worked at the Institute of Macromolecular Chemistry in the city of Prague in the Czech Republic. The tracks he composed during that time have formed the bulk of his compilation Praha 8 Za Vodárnou 1, which can be heard on Bandcamp.
