SHRINE is the music project of Hristo Gospodinov, started in autumn 2003 when after several years of playing various acoustic instruments he has finally turned to sampling and computer music.
Under the heavy influence of the dark ambient scene from the mid-to-late 90s, the original idea of the project was to create some noticeable dark ambient works. However the idea got blurry over the years and has finally dissolved into the wide field of audio experiments. Today SHRINE has no strict genre limits, but the artist is still interested mostly in ‘drifting’ type of music, and especially to mix nature sounds with machine sounds and other artificial things into a processed ambient environment. The sound sources vary from audio synthesis, to acoustic instruments, to field recordings, to whatever he finds interesting to make sounds with, so not much of a limit here. It’s an experimental art after all.
