Valentin Chernov aka Sapphirine Phlant was born in 1995 in a small Russian town, called Novocherkassk. He started to make music in 2012 but it was later in 2013 while listening to AFX’s “Analord” series that Val made the final decision to strictly only make Ambient / IDM music. Respected electronic artists Aphex Twin, Autechre and Burial are his many influences/ And he is also highly influenced by the non-electronic music, especially Black metal bands like Taake, Silencer, Darkthrone, Lustre and Burzum. Sapphirine Phlant’s music evokes a sad and lonely minor sound, where his emotions can be transferred in the most plausable way using the same old 808 and 909 drums mixed with Minimoog and Massive deep basses and unpredictable EFX’s and atmospheric pads.The material for this album was recorded through 2014 under the influence of Norwegian Black Metal, grim moods and wandering in mirk. Some ideas were also inspired by chtonic investigation of H.P. Lovecraft opuses.
