Cisfinitum is a prominent post-industrial project from Moscow, Russia. It was started in the late 90s by composer and musician Eugene Voronovsky, and since then has drawn significant attention as one of the most uncommon and distinctive acts of the national experimental scene.

Cisfinitum has a very specific emotional style lying within the boundaries of drone ambient and noise.

Eugene Voronovsky has graduated from the Moscow State Conservatory as a professional violinist. In his music he uses classical instruments such as violin, piano and percussions, along with sounds traditionally considered "non-musical". All sources are subjected to processing, both Soviet analog tools and modern digital technologies are used.

"Cisfinitum is the sound of eternity. I've always wanted to create the music of Russian cosmos, music capable of expressing information about Russia that is impossible to reveal by means of words. They call this 'drone' overseas, but I prefer to define it 'metaphysical ambient'", claims Eugene.

Cisfinitum has released a lot of material during the years, among his full-length works we'd like to mention "Landschaft", "V", "Bezdna", "Coniunctio", "Malgyl", "Music of Light" and "Mental Travellers" issued on labels such as Entity, Insofar Vapour Bulk, Waystyx, Ewers Tonkunst, Monochrome Vision, etc.

The project has also performed live in various parts of the world and took part in many festivals along with other artists of the modern experimental scene. One of the latest Cisfinitum's works is a collaboration with Rapoon.

"Nevmenosis", a collection of tracks recorded between 2001 and 2007, was released by Afe in late 2008.
