Hi, my name is Mike Konoval and I am from Central Russia. Naturally, I have had a keen interest in music. And from the very childhood I had another burn - video games. Now, I am an independent composer and sound designer. Passion for both music and games drove me to become a game – composer. However, I bear a great fervor for music in general. I believe that an ability to work in different genres and styles is vital for a game composer of today; that's where my classical background and great experience of playing for bands of diverse categories (from hard rock to disco) come to help. I am carrying on playing and at the moment on the go I am playing the role of bassist in two different bands. Did I mention that I can play a varied range of instruments? Piano, guitar, upright bass are my favorites. If I can't play some instruments, don't worry, I can easily fake them. However, I also like to team up with other astounding musicians and artists from all around the globe – both in virtual and in the real world.
