Kryptogen Rundfunk

Real Name:Artyom Ostapchuk

Kryptogen Rundfunk is an experimental sound project started in 2002 in St. Petersburg, Russia and currently based in Amstelveen, The Netherlands. The project works with analogue electronics, radio waves, electromagnetic interference and found sounds, creating sophisticated aural images, often exploring extreme areas of the sonic spectrum. The purpose of these experiments is to temporarily switch off listeners’ rational perception and immerse them into the direct experience of abstract sound.

During more than 20 years of its activity Kryptogen Rundfunk has recorded several studio albums released by various European and Russian labels, and performed numerous live gigs, both solo and in collaboration with many local and international artists. Other prominent works include several soundtracks created in collaboration with the contemporary sculptor & painter Dmitry Kawarga.

Artyom Ostapchuk, the man behind this project, is also the founder of the Zhelezobeton record label, which became one of the biggest distributors of experimental music in Russia, but was closed in 2022. At present time, Artyom operates Base Station label and Fonodroom distribution. , Bandcamp , Soundcloud , Facebook ,
