Alwayslate is a new side-project from Misha Mishenko. In the past he has spoken of the ways in which both tradition and inspiration lead to a quiet, indescribable force - something that operates independently of his will. "My mother brought an old family piano all the way from Irkutsk to Moscow. Four generations of our family have played on it, including me. I've thought a great deal about why this kind of music comes out of me... One day I finally understood. When I compose, I simply turn off my brain and surrender to a flight of fancy. It's something elusive. It happens all of a sudden, spontaneously... it's what you might call 'improvisation of the soul.' It happens so fast, just like flashes of lightning at sunrise. The main thing in those moments is to surrender your ego - and think of nothing."
