E Ignashev is a Vienna-based composer and sound/audiovisual artist. His work, aiming to create tangible sonic experiences and fusing musicality with pure sound sensations, includes acousmatic and live-electronic compositions, installations, A/V and theatre/film/app music projects. It often refers to surreal, oneiric and scientific narratives. 

Psychosonography and sonic adventures as a mission to create immersive sonic worlds of resonating entities and expressive gestures interwoven with machinery composure. Sounds from custom-built instruments, extended instrumental/vocal techniques, synths, field recordings, vintage lab equipment, audio-programming environments with psycho-/otoacoustic elements, microtunings, AI tools, spectral transformations and site-specific spatial sound projections.

He is a co-founder of ‘moquette’ and ‘Blinds’ concert series with the punctum collective ensemble; A Certain Trio (ACT) explorative sound art union, Wiener ARP Ensemble (W~ARP), Marie Byrd Land, The Kickers and other project-specific collaborations. He contributed music to several films and the Loóna app (winner: Apple Design Awards 2021).

His work has been supported by the Ministry for Arts & Culture (BMKÖS, AT), City of Vienna MA7, SKE, and others. He studied electroacoustic music, composition, sound art and electronic media at the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna (mdw/ELAK), Darmstädter Ferienkurse, cello & music tech since an early age + psychology with a focus on cognition in music as a diploma/PhD.
