"Music is the reflection of the reality in the emotional experience and ideas aroused by feeelings. These ideas are expressed by means of sounds of special kind. Generalized intonations of human speech underlie those sounds."
It's really hard to write about myself, but I've decided to try. I was born on August 12, 1977, in the second city of Ukraine - Kharkov. Since 5 years I'm engaged in play on a piano. I guess that's because my mum was music school teacher. In the childhood I played classical music to develop my technics, but only at mature age I began to understand and appreciate creativity of composers: Mozart, Bach, Chopin, Tchaikovsky. At 22-23 I've understood, what a jazz is. At 17 I've started to learn a guitar and a bass to understand the rock music.
My favorite rock bands are Europe and Bon Jovi. And I will always play rock in spite of that's not marketable goods, this music just needs perfect technics. (I don't even speak about virtuosity!).
In 1995-1997 I played atmospheric-gothic-doom-metal. We were "Apeiron", and we played interesting music. But I had to choose, what was music for me - hobby or destiny. I think, my choice's right. In 2000 I graduated from chemical faculty of Kharkov National university. And I don't regret it. One year I worked in school. It's funny! My former pupils are adult people now. I believe, they'll find their ways. 2.5 years I worked as manager in a trading-civil engineering firm (not bad experience :)). Since November 2004 I work in a store of musical instruments, but my future I see related with music and only with it. I wrote about twenty songs with english lyrics from 2004 to 2008, and you can hear ot on my site http://www.pauldubrovsky.com/ In 2009 I made my dream come true writing an instrumental recording in electronic style http://www.myspace.com/musicpauldubrovsky which is considered like a final product and can be exposed to wide audience. Actually, I decide how to promote my work, hoping it'll be attractive and interesting for producers, musicians and average listeners. I have great plans about 2010 year: I want to rebuild my songs 2004-2008 period with a good vocal and new arrangement. This recording will have the name "Greatest but not latest" and I plan to finish it by the autumn 2010...To be continued :-)
I'd like to express gratitude to people, who have affected me. So... Thanks to:

Mum - for her help in development of it. She was my first teacher.

Well... That's enough... for now!
"To achive an incarnation of the destiny is the only real human responsibility. Everyone knows his destiny while he's young... But as the time goes by The Secret Power convinces people that it's impossible to incarnate destiny. This Power seems to be unkindly, but it directs, how to incarnate destiny. It makes ready a heart and a will. There is one great truth in our planet: when you really want something to happen, the whole universe conspires to help you to realize your dream, because it came from the Soul of the World. It is your mission on earth..."
