"Ukrainian composer; writes solo and chamber works using electronics and experiments with non-standard instruments, while also musically employing uncommon objects. Her pieces are highly contrasted in terms of sound intensity, ranging from subtle, barely audible sounds through strong, piercing culminations. Arkushyna’s oeuvre attracts particular attention thanks to its richness of sound effects obtained using a wide spectrum of original performing techniques, which at the same time inject her compositions with emotional distance."
