The original concept of Kirlian Crossing 
was Ilai Rämä and Teemu Sinkko.

Then things started to change and 
hopefully the changing never stops.

Kirlian refers to Kirlian photography 
and crossing is a place where you get across.
That is what we choose to do.

The original idea was to combine acoustic folk songs
into Soviet Union era science fiction in Tarkovsky spirit. 
It's uncertain where we got lost. 
The things we've done don't fill the definition. 
Maybe we're still in between.

We've been building microphones and effects. 
We've used Soviet-made technology and Russian microphones. 
We've gone by channeling sessions, books, cinema. 
Eventually we've counterfeited UFO footage and 
looked the world through pinhole cameras.

We are the chance of a dog wandering into 
the scene in Stalker.

Believe me baby, 
we've done questionable things.

The current line-up of Kirlian Crossing is:
