The basic principles of the composer are manifested in the unique combination of the outstanding radicalism of the musical language and extended techniques within the frames of the Baroque or classical structures (i.e., sonata, rondo, concert).
Dorokhov's music is unmistakably recognisable due to the high degree tension occuring between noise and silence, simultaneously combining the perfect self-irony and extremely vulnerable sincerity.
