Evgenii Ж Ignashev (AT/RU) is a Vienna-based Moscow-born composer, sound/media artist, and performer. His works range from acousmatic multichannel and live-electronic pieces with acoustic instruments/voice to improvised electroacoustic performances, sound installations, and film music.

His particular musical interests lie in utilising psycho-/otoacoustic phenomena in music, spatial sound distribution concepts, spectral sound transformations accompanied by a perpetual search for exotic, custom-built, vintage or cutting edge instruments, sonic machines, sounding test equipment, natural sound sources, and extended techniques for his sound palette.

He studied electroacoustic music, composition, sound art, and electronic media at the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna (mdw/ELAK), composition at Darmstädter Ferienkurse, cello and music technology since an early age, and psychology with a focus on cognition and creative thinking in music composition as a diploma/postgraduate.
