ASTMA is a duo project of Olga Nosova (drummer and vocalist mostly known for her work with Moscow noise-core band Motherfathers) and Russian industrial/electronic scene pioneer Alexei Borisov. The collaborative project was formed in April 2009 in Moscow, and it's developing very fast and steady: their mind-boggling and abstract (though surprisingly groovy) music is already highly acclaimed amongst experimental music lovers around the world. Paying homage to both experimental tradition of Alexei's countless musical reincarnations and Olga's instrumental noise experience, the duo embrace elements of weird free-form spoken word psychedelia, live electronics, noise, heavy acid, electro-acoustic, dub and far too many different types of acoustic torture to even bother mentioning all of them. The music is highly improvised, so naturally Borisov / Nosova collaborate with various musicians, video-artists and poets from different countries both live and in studio: Anton Nikkila (Finland), Dave Phillips (Switzerland), Matthieu Werchowski (France), Dora Bleu (Canada), Thomas Buckner (USA), Tom Smith (USA), Jandek (USA), Ilya Belorukov (Russia), Sergei Letov (Russia), Nikita Tsymbal (Russia) to name just a few. ASTMA band is now touring extensively, performing in Russia, Ukraine, Belorussia, Turkey, Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania, Slovenia, Finland, Poland, Germany, Austria, Netherlands, France, Israel, USA, etc.
