Feodor was born in Tashkent, Uzbekistan. He took up music at 7 which was a mere hobby. His parents insisted on his studying at the Tashkent University of Information Technology. Feodor abided by their demands and won an admission to the University to become a fiber-optic link engineer. But his great love for music kept him on the hop.
When he was just 17 Feodor became the winner of the international rock-festival “Flower children” that was held in Tashkent as the best solo-guitarist. After graduating from the university Feodor moved to Moscow and entered the State Gnessins Music College to learn guitar playing. The next year he conquered the all-Russian competition of young guitarists called “Guitar’s many faces”, where he got the Grand Prix as the best guitar player. After that he dedicated himself to music only.
An exciting creative period of Feodor’s life began. There were acquaintances and co-projects with jazz stars. During this period he learned much. Feodor played and recorded with such musicians as David Sanborn, Billy Cobham, Eric Marienthal, Damien Schmitt, Michael Shrive, Dave Koz, Hadrien Feraud and Phil Perry. Thanks to them Feodor gained his own playing style and lineaments; his
individuality became more outstanding and creative. New ideas and plans that had to be realized came up. A bass player Anton
Davidyants and a drummer Damien Schmitt became his like-minded fellows. The guys noted each other’s gifts at the first onset. It became obvious that they had to pool their efforts in common cause. Tours, performances, coauthorship the guys enjoyed each other’s musicianship. The result of this cooperation the album called “Moscow” was appreciated not only in Russia but also abroad. Feodor began to receive invitations from West Europe to give master-classes there. It’s worth mentioning that while working on the album Feodor got very interested in electronic music. A track “Idea” from the “Moscow” album is one of his first creative experiments, where he tried to insert electronic music elements into fusion music. Modern styles are heard more often in his works and arrangements, imparting them with a fresh an exclusive sound.
Today Feodor lives an active creative, studio and tour life.https://jamtrackcentral.com/artists/feodor-dosumov
