The first mini-album Noises (2006) is a result of his sound experiments; dirty digital noise, like the audio drugs & i-dosing that would become popular years later. At the same time an unnamed release (later titled Early Recordings ‘06) was distributed among friends. The album consisted of soft melodious tracks and sharply contrasted with the experimental sound of Noises. Thorn1 tended both toward melodic songs and the atonal noise which creates surreal soundscapes, but it was clear that at some point they should be combined.
In early 2008 Thorn1 [EP] was distributed among friends. Interpenetration of melody and noise gave a new turn to Evgeny’s creative work. Neoclassical etudes spiced with the hum of the ice-cold Siberian winds have become the main feature of his music. The EP brought Thorn1 fame among the fans of experimental electronic music in his hometown, but since that time Evgeny Zheyda has distanced himself as a purely electronic artist.
In late 2008 after a personal drama Evgeny left Partisani to devote himself to Thorn1. The search for solace resulted in the contradictory So Far As Fast (2010, Silber Records), the first official release of the young artist. The album is filled with funeral hymns, snowstorms, & the freezing breath of solitude. His music continues to become more personal, more accessible, more challenging, & more refined with each release.
