Roman Matin            

Я на электричках много ездил, и с детства и в молодости. Иногда просто садился и ехал… Станция за станцией, без конца. Поля за окном пустынные… И электричество гудело все время. В гитаре тоже электричество гудит... Магнитоводы в датчиках как токоприемники в электричке... и дальше по проводам. С такими ощущениями всегда... Из этого гула возникает музыка, она в нем и исчезает, умирает в нем. В этом истоки моего стиля… Это психоделическая музыка с медленными и зацикленными образами. Я считаю свой стиль по сути русским. Назвал бы русским электрогитарным стилем...

"Roman Matin has an original sound on guitar. Although all of the music is played by Roman alone on his guitar without overdubbing, it often sounds as if several musicians are performing at once. He expertly uses overtones and occasional distortion. All in all, this is a thought-provoking set of original music that is difficult to describe but well worth hearing." - Scott Yanow, main jazz contributor to All Music Guide
