Currently a studio-only project, Starsoup is the creation of vocalist/guitarist/bassist Alexey Markov (Shadow Host, Distant Sun) who is joined on the album by keyboardist/sampler Andrew Gryaznov (Timesquare) and several guest musicians.

That rush of creativity ultimately resulted in eight more songs, including one composed by Lex Plotnikov (Mechanical Poet).
