“After having had his music released alongside sound artists and on a compilation by pop experimentalist Björk, this is Mikhail's first solo album.
Orphica takes the listener on a thrilling sonic adventure. Twelve songs map a journey through epic encounters, intimate confessions and emotional confrontations in an exuberant melding of pop, electronica, Greek folk and avant-garde music. Drawing inspiration from the mythical singer Orpheus whose music had miraculous powers,
Orphica's sonic universe is high-tech and baroque, raw and delicate at once through the sounds of harps and harpsichords, while choirs chant alongside distorted static, creaking insects and whistling bats. In the midst of this, Mikhail's voice reaches out for its limits with the determination of a futurist.”
