Origen journey to the international music stage from Kiev (Ukraine) in a flurry of light & sound started in 1996 when this name first appeared on the CD "Electro" (available at www.cdbaby.com/origens). The founders of the band were Alexsey and Denis Zakharenko. Their music was as the nature of the soul in it's boundless proximity to the cosmos. It obliterates the boundaries of space and time and impressed the listeners with the originality, as well as inspired style and sound.
The forays into the mysteries of art & sound, based on large body of work both Classical , New Age and Electronic & coupled with a propensity to evoke classical images, resulted in the release of the Origen's second album "Era of Aquarius" in 1999 (available at www.cdbaby.com/origens). This album blends together elegance and beauty dressed in electronic clothing. Hitherto "Era of Aquarius" is the best selling Origen's album. "Dance Of The Clouds", a very beautiful piece from this album with a plaintive electronic synthesis piano of baroque & melancholy tone & ambiance, like a candle flickering in the dead of night was recognized as the best musical piece and got the Diploma at the IV International Festival Of Underwater Art "Silver Shark" in 2004. Also in 2004 the song "Your Love" from another Origen's album "Mooky Zvoo"available at www.cdbaby.com/origens ) became Nominee in the dance song category of the "2004 Just Plain Folks Music Awards " in USA. There were 140,000 songs entered from 85 countries worldwide and "Your Love" was chosen as one of the best dance song of the year.
New turn in Origen's music happened in 2002 when Alexey Zakharenko invited opera soprano Tanya Lubimenkoto take part in the recordings of electronic/new age album "Ave Maria" (available at www.cdbaby.com/origens). Three months after the release of this album on June 2002, all tracks from the album were at the top of different international charts. "Ave Maria" (by J.Caccini) climbed to #1 at New Age mp3.com Charts, "Ave Maria" (by F.Shubert) was #1 in Electronic Classical Charts, Largo from Bach's concerto Fmin was # 1 at Progressive Metal Charts. About two months the songs occupied their #1 position and till now many tracks from this album are at the top in different international charts. "This is so good! Incredible sound, and mixing..and I cried when the vocals came in... this is "Dead Can Dance + Sarah Brightman. I will be listening out for more... how can I not".
