Vena Portae is a Russian band formed by Artem Demidov in Barnaul (Altai Kray) in 2006. He started out with dark-ambient, noise, abstract and experimental. Next years the music changed into IDM, ambient, glitch, downtempo. The author started using recorded sounds of towns, trains, nature and people. He calls the songs «photographic tracks». Each song is a real story, an event that becomes a sound. In 2011, Katerina Zlobina joined the band. She influenced the general sound of the band by beautiful singing and playing melodica (“blow-organ”). Since then Vena Portae have started creating songs using acoustic instruments: acoustic guitar, glockenspiel, metallophone, percussion, Native American flute etc. Acoustic sounds and sounds of nature interweave charmingly with electronic music. Vena Portae give concerts in town and out of it. The band also takes part in different performances, art exhibitions, festivals, installation art etc.
