STROON is a pulsating element of the Slovak music scene. This is not only due to the vibraphone which is his primary instrument, but also due to a large scale of projects where he leaves his footprint. Dreamy, contemplative no-gravity and conceptual inside, full of modalities, rhythmical patterns, minimalism, distortion, synth beddings and proto-melodic elements outside. He always tries to adapt his live sessions to the place, time and to his listeners. That is why you can hear early electronic music, acoustic compositions, dystopic improvisations, solar preludes as well as his latest creations in his sets. STROON has drawn attention to himself in 2010 with his debut Ruine Noire which had truly positive reviews. Since then, he has been bringing his report on his momentary music direction almost every year. Smithereens, Triple Farewell and Impermanence were about exploring his own „electronic“ language to which he was gradually connecting the vibraphone. The above mentioned explorations have climaxed with his single, the Astatine, which became one of the most rotated tracks of Radio FM as it was published. His short EP Chosen Months (2015) was a strong return to his metal roots. His Solar Preludes (2016) have blended the antagonistic worlds of distorted guitar and vibraphone in an electronic form.
