Sergey Rybytskky’s musical influences cover a broad range from Alice Cooper to Marty Friedman. The primary motivation for Sergey’s music is to create an emotional experience for the listener that is original, lively and refined. Rybytskyy’s main instrument of choice is the keyboard, but he also uses a variety of other instruments which allows a wide range of synthetic and authentic sounds. Sergey Rybytskyy’s instrumental music unites the elements of classical and progressive rock beats into a sound that is cinematic and is often used for soundtracks.

Some Questions We Asked Sergey:

–High profile projects or clients you have worked for?

I have signed an agreement on a non-exclusive basis with approximately 20 music libraries and music publishers. At the same time, I have concluded 3 treaties on exclusive basis with TJC Communications Publishing (BMI) (USA), The Guitar Library (PRS) (UK), and Soundtaxi GmbH (GEMA) (Germany).

 –Primary instrument? –Favorite music-making piece of gear or software you currently use?


Shreddage – Electric Rhythm Guitar,  Electri6ity, Superior Drummer v2, (libraries for Kontakt)

 –Piece of gear or software you wish you owned?

 Real Full Orchestra

 –Film score or song you admire? Why?

“Jewel” by Marty Friedman & Jason Becker.

This song is contemplative, dreamy, romantic, and sublime. The composers have put their whole soul into the song. This song is kindly and highly artistic.

–Music education background?

I went in for music at the age of 7. I decided to master the piano that was in our home. And before that I liked to listen to music. After 2 years of my independent studies I was admitted to the last grade of the music school. Then after a short break, I connected with mastering another engineering specialty. I then entered the second course of the Dnepropetrovsk Music College where I got acquainted with a wonderful composer and teacher V. Skuratovsky who has been giving me private lessons in harmony, polyphony and composition.

 –Memorable “Aha!” moment during your musical education?

 I like to improvise on piano and once I was so carried away by the process that I absolutely forgot about cooking preparation. As a result, the concoction was spoiled. It was scorched baked pudding.

 –Most embarrassing music-related moment?

It all happened way back in the 90ies when I was studying in the musical college. I appeared on the stage before onlookers. It was in the concert hall that I performed the musical compositions on piano. I invited many mates and fellows. It was crammed, congested and crowded in the hall. While performing I heard harsh sharp creak. Being addicted to reproduce any squeak and any moan after listening Steve Vai’s music I repeated the creak on piano.  Although the audience clapped for me, as a result I got a C for my performance and for my freak.

–If you had a time machine and could record or perform once with any artist, who would it be?

 Jason Becker.

He has Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. It has crippled his body and speech, but not his mind.

 –Moment you first knew you would be a musician?

 After Glinka Musical College graduation

 –Advice you would give to a younger family member interested in a music career?

Never surrender!

Furthermore, try to combine various musical genres in your music. From my point of view music should express some feelings. And feelings may be different.

I consider it essential to put my whole soul into compositions. I always try to represent romantic principle, particularly, different emotions such as gladness, anxiety, etc. In general, help other people as far as possible, respect different opinions and never act against your conscience.

 –Five songs or albums you’d take with you to a desert island?

I am delighted with classical and progressive rock music.

Bach – Messe H-Moll

Rhapsody of Fire – The Frozen Tears Of Angels (album 2010)

Marty Friedman – Introduction (album 1994)

Tony Macalpine – Maximum Security (album 1987)

Joe Satriani – Surfing With The Alien (album 1987)

–If you could master another instrument, what would it be?


–Favorite time of day to work in your studio?

24 hours per day

 –Any studio collaboration you experienced that stands out in your mind? Why?

Collaboration with my old fellow Roman Daniels. He is a fascinating, amazing guitarist. Roman took part in recording some my compositions. He is a first-class guitarist and I plan to record our teamwork sooner or later.
