A founding member of an electronic music band called Autism, Vadim Militsin was born in Georgia and raised in Germany. His early works composed in the mid 90's in Minsk (Belarus) bridged the gap between electronic pop and experimentalism, pioneering the intuitive use of old analog synthesizers from the Soviet era. Critically acclaimed by Christopher Franke (ex-Tangerine Dream), Autism's fundamental album 'Membrana' is webbed with many ethnic samples. Since moving to New York in 2000, Vadim Militsin has been exploring synthetic sound structures. The latest work by Autism including "Gaijin' (2004, Segment) was influenced by journeys to Japan and Mexico.
