Studio-producer / sound-designer / musical critic. His creations unreserved by the boundaries of any one style, he is known as a multiformat specialist. In autumn of ‘05 he launched a Paranorma project, which is closely related to his scientific medical activity in Moscow. At this moment William Grey is manager and executive producer of “IntroSpect. Porta Tracks".
It was 1993 when Daniel and William Grey met and began working together. They launched three independent projects: Vacuum Stalkers for progressive, tech sound compositions.

Vacuum Stalkers - Sci-Fi Animation album:
Austrian Synergetic Records label and Moscow based Vacuum Stalkers duo (Koan / Fatum Sci-Fi) signed an agreement to release debut 'Sci-Fi Animation' album. Released is based upon science-fiction aesthetics of French animator and film director Rene Laloux ('Time Masters','Fantastic Planet', 'Gandahar: Light Years'), American screenadaptation of Strugatsky Brothers 'Stalker' and cyberpunk features of Japanese animators Hiroyuki Imaishi and Shinji Aramaki ('Dead Leaves'and 'Appurushido'). Sci-Fi Animation is a genre fusion of contemporarydance and full-prog trance sounds. Skillful combination of different sample based elements, pulsing and mutating bass lines, interweaving main themes and sound that is both dense and crystal-clear make the release intense and varied.
