About Veles

Veles is a major Slavic god of earth, waters and the underworld, associated with dragons, cattle, magic, musicians, wealth and trickery. He is also the opponent of thunder-god Perun, and the battle between two of them constitutes one of the most important myths of Slavic mythology.

This battle is symbol of day-night shifts and there is no "good" or "bad" side, as usual on Christianity and similar religion. Veles (emotions, wild nature, unconscious) and Perun (intellect, discipline, will) are both important for cosmic balance, as well for balance of individual mind.

Dot in project name is coding allegory. In Object-Oriented languages with dot you're calling sub member or property of some object. When I produce music that has atmosphere that fits symbolism of particular old-slavic god, I'm signing it with my personal nickname: hardy and dot + name of deity.

Live acts

I'm doing live-acts as hardy.Veles and as hardy.Rod (ambient, break-beat). Also there are combined live-acts with Float and Zyce. Since my goal is to make live performance live as much is possible, if suitable I'm taking one guitarist and one percussionist with me.

If you're thinking about booking, let's say also that I'm preferring to travel with someone else from TesseracT Studio, so think about double booking ;)

Also about me

Beside music production I'm very active in other fields of live. With father, I'm running private company selling industrial equipment (koplas pro). From 2008. I'm scientific assistant on private business university (Alpha university)with goal to become professor in e-commerce and marketing. Coding (C#, AS3, php, C++) and graphic design are also part of my hobbies since very childhood.
