SOMA was established by Vlad Kreimer, a radio engineer and a musician who lived in Donetsk, Ukraine, and later moved to Moscow, Russia, after war broke out in the city.
Earlier Vlad made hi grade studio and audiophile equipment, as well as created unusual synthesizers and music equipment for his music project.
After the demo for LYRA sparked the interest of the synthesizer community, he has decided to start massive production of these synthesizers. This is his first experience with mass production and many things need to be learned from from scratch.
The philosophy behind the instrument was met with support and understanding by the musicians, which motivates to further create a line of electronic music instruments based on similar ideas and approaches.
