Composer, arranger, musician Viktor Kireya, was born in 1962, in Osinniki, Kemerovo region (Russia).
During my school years, I took lessons on the accordion and piano. From the age of 16, as part of the local VIA (vocal and instrumental ensemble), he played the ionic, and then the bass guitar.
At the end of the 1980s, a big creative break came in my life. And only in 2021 . I'm back in music again.
It is known that Michelangelo began writing his "Last Judgment" for the Sistine Chapel at the age of 61. Goethe completed Faust at the age of 81. Titian in 95 painted one of his best paintings "Mourning for Christ".
I started writing music at the age of 58.
I compose and perform dance music in the style of disco, house, pop, Europop, electropop, rock. Didier Marouani, Jean-Michel Jarre, The Alan Parsons Project, Electric Light Orchestra, Zodiac, Deep Purple, Whitesnake, Rainbow had a special influence on his work.

There was a lot of different music in my childhood, but I listened most often to Didier Marouani, Jean-Michel Jarre, The Alan Parsons Project, Electric Light Orchestra, Zodiac, Deep Purple, Whitesnake, Rainbow.
I liked different music. I listened to Soviet vocal and instrumental ensembles, foreign disco, jazz and classics by great composers.
I listened, played guitar and composed my own songs.
But I really started writing music after I turned 58. I've been writing it every day since.
My music can be different, it can be funny, it can be sad, it can be romantic, it can be serious, it can even be funny, but the main thing is that there are always a lot of feelings and emotions in it. Music is everything. Because music is not just sound.
Images are born in my music that I cannot describe, but they are so vivid and vivid that I feel them with my skin, as if these images live in me.
And when I write music, I feel to some extent that it lives in my hands and in my heart, and that it is not just a set of sounds, but something alive, real, that responds to my feelings.
Music is my second Self, which lives in me, in my memory, in every movement, in every thought, in my feelings, emotions, experiences, dreams, dreams.
Now music is not only a hobby for me, but also a job. Now I understand that I am not just playing, but creating music - now I understand its essence and I can say that I am a composer.
