My name is Hristo Gospodinov and SHRINE is my own music project, born of my interest in esoteric music and the desire to express my obscure understandings of life and everything in a nonverbal way. It was started in autumn'2003 when after several years of playing various acoustic instruments I have finally turned to sampling and computer music.
Under the heavy influence of dark ambient scene from the middle and the end of the 90s, the original idea of the project was to create some noticeable dark ambient works. However the idea got blurry in the years and has finally dissolved in the wide field of audio experiments. Today SHRINE has no genre limits. Still, I'm interested mostly in 'drifting' type of music, especially to mix nature sounds with machine sounds and other artificial things into a processed ambient environment. The sound sources vary from audio synthesis, to acoustic instruments, to field recordings, to whatever I find interesting to make sounds with, so not much of a limit here.
It's an experimental art after all, isn't it?
