I record and play live as a solo artist, mostly as Optimal, Industry Standard or Centralia.




Optimal is a plunderophonic studio project, drawing on the aesthetics of jungle, breakcore and the Digital Hardcore Recordings catalog. Currently released, the three half-hour EPs are available in their entirety on Soundcloud. A CD is planned to be released by Rope Worm in the near future.

Industry Standard


Industry Standard is an industrial techno project, focused on heavy and abrassive danceable sounds. It came to life in 2019, and after a string of demo recordings and a digital single, first full album, Dominant Hand, was released in joint collaboration between Positive Regression and Z.W.F., in digital format and as CD.

Ideogram (digital single, 2020)



Centralia was my solo music output, founded under this name in 2015. Both live material and tape releases were designed around connecting topics in the matter of concept, but not aeshtetics. Utilising cheap analog sound generators, guitar pedals, toy synths, prepared guitar, tape machines and samplers, everything done under this alias connects under the same denominator of various forms of violence. Pulp fantasy, TV docudramas, war, war through the lens of media, civic unrest, colonial appropriation of underprivileged cultures. Currently on hold.
