Introduction

Poligraf is the brainchild of Christopher Stewart who acts as its driving force, pursuing his ideal of creating original, inspiring, and challenging music in the context of a rock ensemble.

The band has been founded on February 6, 1998, and has been active in various configurations since then, except for a few short breaks here and there and a hiatus of about one year beginning in February 2003 following the dissolution of the band’s original core.

The original Poligraf (1998-2003) was characterized by frequent changes of personnel which severely compromised the band’s ability to publish the results of its efforts, but which in turn contributed to the creation of a vast reservoir of musical ideas integrating a wide variety of influences.

In contrast, the present incarnation is marked a shared willingness to develop Poligraf to its maturity.

The band presently counts three members :

While in recording mode, various hired-guns will gravitate around the three musicians who form the poligrafic core.
