Mahi Bukimi (real name, Maksims Borisovs) is Latvian sound designer from Liepāja, Latvia. His first musical experience was a graduating in piano at the Liepāja Musical School in 2000. Taking a part in the art rock project Karjer introduced musician to the Soviet era analog synthesizers and endless improvisations. 2001-2003 were the years of creating and developing the sound studio at media laboratory of the Culture and Information centre K@2 at Liepāja. It was a time of making music for performances and films - suite in four parts, written for the international audio, video, photo and performing arts festival KASte, music for the Playground, a short film by Ieva Arone, awarded at the One Minute Movies festival in Amsterdam and many other works were created there. A lot of the audio-visual workshops with participation of Planktons & Aquarell, Martinez Gonzalez, Alexander Ganja and many other artists took a place at Medialab.

Taking a part in the contemporary theatre ANET Festival - BLENDING 2002, organized by the REX, B92 cultural centre, Beograd, Serbia confirmed the ideas of making a sound for performances. Interest for the elements of the classic music, played on strings and piano through the digital processing effects, also appeared there. Bzzzzzzzzz(0aaa0090z988z0zz100100*(x)*(8901111010110) - was an interactive sound exhibition at the Contemporary Arts gallery K.Maxla, Liepāja (2003). The main idea of event was to analyse information in the objects around us. Live sessions, where everybody were able to make out a sound from any object located in the gallery, were running by composer and his friends Emsis and Vnz (Stones and Tables project followed this collaboration later) at every February 2003 day.

The sound was amplified, processed and prepared for the participants in the audio-visual way. This experiment followed the creative friendship with Derek Holzer (Netherlands) - a partner for the trips into the Zona at 2001-2003, (karosta.edworks.net), one of the largest military territory of the Soviet Union in the Baltic States, left completely abandoned, using field recordings and GPS for saving the atmosphere and coordinates of areas. The result of it was the album Kosta, released on Nexsound. Derek also acquainted Mahi Bukimi to Kriipis Tulo.

Than, Mahi Bukimi was an artist of the Kolka Music label for some time (Yoshio Mashida Meets Kolka Music Artists, Skaņu Mežs, Microstraava, 2 Annas). Since 2006 collaborating with Kriipis Tulo as the Astrowind project. At spring 2007 the first EP of Astrowind was released by Russian netlable Electrosound. During 2007-2008 in Moscow and Berlin four albums of Astrowind were released - Into Vernadsky, Somewhere the Music Had Been Played, Fresh Wind in the Valley of Dreams, and Der Leuchtturm. In spring 2008 together with Kriipis Tulo the soundtrack to the Dreamers, a new exhibition of popular Latvian painter Ritums Ivanovs, was presented at the Rīga Gallery. V/A In Memoriam Andrey Tarkovsky LP was dedicated to Andrey Tarkovsky, where Astrowind took a part with the Autumn Drifting.
