Edward Sol (Edward S.) was born 1974 in Ukraine. Educated as professional sound-designer (cinema/TV production) at Kiev's University of Theatre, Cinema & TV Arts. He started recording/composing soundtracks for short and experimental movies with poor lo-fi audio gear OF USSS era (utilizing tapes, tape loops, field recordings and vintage Soviet synthesizers). Some of his sound-works for films won prestige prizes on different Cinema Festivals (incl. Sergey Paradzhanov's Prize). 2001 he started independent Quasi Pop label, dedicated to experimental and unusual music.

How could he sleep with these voice in his head? I really have no idea. It was May 2011 when Edward recorded the sounds of thousands of frogs in Lychanka village, Ukraine where he lives. No edits, no layering at all, just pure field recording. Eco noise, unknown psychedelic experience.
