Mihail Doman’s career started with a dream back in October of 2011. It was a vivid dream which would shake Mihail’s life to the very core. That’s because it brought with it this intense quest to find out what life and destiny will bring.
Years came and went, and after many attempts at many things, finally in the Fall of 2015, Mihail began working on his first album – ‘Arhythmology‘. This was an album that he had somehow been working on his entire life, but it was only just now that he could actually manifest it into the world.
The album was maybe a bit simplistic, but what it lacked in musical and compositional prowess, it made up in a kind of authenticity. The deep saw synths, the dramatic strings, and even the simple naming scheme were all an amalgam of Mihail’s biggest influences: Beethoven, Jean-Michel Jarre and Hans Zimmer.
In August 2017 ‘Arhythmology VI’ got a brand new 4K video. It was inspired by Boticelli’s ‘Birth of Venus’, but also by the theory of the five classical elements. The video features a beautiful choreographic performance and was shot in wide screen, on a perfect white background.
Fast forward a few years, and in March 2019, ‘Neptune‘ was launched. A step away from the first one, this album feels like a journey to a distant place among the stars. Its deep warm pads and synths will take the listener somewhere else, somewhere within oneself – where people rarely go nowadays.
The year of the pandemic 2020 brought ‘Rebirth‘ – a compilation of musical pieces inspired by the changing times we live in. The short release contains reworks of some of Mihail’s previously released musical pieces, which have all been re-orchestrated with electronic instruments. ‘Rebirth’ steps into the genre of space music and electronica, something quite different than the previous works.
The next opus – released in March 2021 – is ‘Humanity‘ – an exploration of the human experience seen through the lenses of the 5 classical elements. In these dehumanizing times, Mihail makes the case for getting closer to our selves, to our essence and to that which truly makes us human. ‘Humanity’ features only orchestral instruments, departing a bit from the tried and tested electronic music influence.
And in September of the same year, ‘Humanity: Anthology‘ was released – a soundscape inspired by the sounds of the NASA Voyager program recorded on the famous Golden Record.
