Aesthesys is an instrumental outfit based in Moscow, Russia. Founded by Nik Koniwzski as his one-man project back in 2007, it has eventually evolved into an ensemble performing post-rock music with ambient and neoclassical influences by becoming a quartet in the end of 2011, with Eldar Ferzaliev, Dmitry Solopov and Arsentiy Karpov joining as guitarist, bassist and drummer. A few months later Ivan Lubiany joined the team as band's sound engineer, and by early 2013 band widened once more with Victor Krabovich joining as keyboardist.
Aesthesys performed live across many European countries, including at the biggest post-rock festivals of Europe - dunk!festival (Belgium) and Astral (Russia), and shared the stage with such bands as God is an Astronaut, 65daysofstatic, Maybeshewill, And So I Watch You From Afar, Ef, sleepmakeswaves and many others. They also have toured in Asia.
The current lineup consists of Sasha Coudray (bass guitar), Nikita Sarukhanov (drums), Eldar Ferzaliev (guitar), Victor Krabovich (guitar, keyboards), Nik Koniwzski (violin, keyboards, guitar) and Ivan Lubiany (sound engineering).
Apart from Aesthesys we have connections with a bunch of other projects: Nik records eclectic stuff under the variety of monikers, Victor creates various music as aliass, Eldar has a solo-project 365 years in a year, Nikita also plays progressive rock in band Velcrocranes, while Ivan works with so many other bands that the rest of this page would hardly be enough to list them all. Also Nik, Victor and Ivan founded a sound workshop murmur where they also release original music under murmur's moniker apart from other lines of work with sound (like mixing, mastering, creating sound design, etc).
