"Electronic music wasn't designed to be dance music, it was designed to be a futurist statement"
. Jeff Mills
The Faculty is a project aimed at promoting the evolving art of modern electronic music in Uzbekistan. Relying on cutting edge pedagogical techniques, the project expands the horizons of listeners by exposing them to sound sessions, providing practical hands-on training, and inviting professional DJs to share emerging technologies with its eager students.

The Faculty has two major ongoing projects in Uzbekistan. The first, Stihia, is a festival of electronic music. The second, Fragment, is a series of instructional sound sessions that travel nomadically across Uzbekistan to teach students about currents in electronic music.
Stihia (trans. "an unstoppable force of nature"), is a unique event in the diverse world of electronic music. First and foremost, it strives to raise global awareness about the devastating problem of the Aral Sea to increase individual responsibility about the rational use of water in the hopes of revitalizing the once marvelous Aral. Stihia, an annual event supported by the Government of Uzbekistan, is an out-of-this-world sound installation conducted on the previously coastal town of Moynak in the autonomous republic of Karakalpakstan inside of Uzbekistan. Moynak is now a ship graveyard that stands as a monument to the dried-up Aral. This sound festival directs is rhythms at the now distant Aral in the hopes that they will contribute to her revitalization.

Fragment are a series of nomadic sound sessions of Faculty students that are held in various locations across Uzbekistan. The group, which brings together audiophile nomads, does not subscribe to any musical philosophy. Fragment sessions set the tone and gives rhythm to modern Uzbekistani society. These sessions encourage purity of thought and reject the imposition of homogenizing ideologies and frames as it teaches students about concepts such as rhythm, pulse, and vibration.
