Making music on the fringe since the underground movement ignited in Russia in the beginning 80s, Alexei Borisov has developed an impressively diverse body of work as a member of NIGHT PROSPEKT, F.R.U.I.T.S.
and VOLGA, among many other projects.
Born in Moscow on December 7, 1960, Alexei Borisov graduated the Moscow State University
where he had studied History and Arts. His controversial performing career (as a guitarist) began in the CENTER new-wave group, in 1980
. Next year, he formed the PROSPEKT mod-band. And re-loaded it in 1985
as the shifting NIGHT PROSPEKT with then-partner Ivan Sokolovsky
. After the actual dissolution of the band in the beginning 90s, he surfaced then in the "noise reconstruction and techno acoustics" duo F.R.U.I.T.S.
with Pavel Zhagun (also known as PIEZO) and in various short-lived art/noise/industrial acts like JOINT COMMITTEE, ATOMIC BISQUIT ORCHESTRA and SEVER.
Being left with little possibility of finding a label to fund and promote his most radical projects, Alexei Borisov with his old-associate, an experimental Finnish sound-sculptor Anton Nikkila established in 2000

Among other Borisovs' collaborations are the joint projects with the performance-group "North" (Russia), KK Null
(Japan), Jeffrey Surak (USA), Leif Ellgren (Sweden). Borisov also collaborates with the video-artist Roman Anikushin, multimedia-artists Aristarh Chernishev and Vladislav Efimov and also with Olga Subbotina, Moscow theatre director.... Read More
