He composed and performed live two musical scores for the Sergei Eisenstein's mute films The strike in Riga, Latvia (at the festival Baltā Nakts) in 2006[6] and The Battlefield Potemkin in Dresden, Germany together with Xabec in 2009.[7]

In 2006 he won the best soundtrack prize at the film festival Côté court in Montreuil, France.[8] The movie was directed by Gisèle Pape and edited on DVD by Ad Noiseam.

Trivia[edit]

Between the years 2000 and 2002 C-drík used variations of his moniker for various compilation, increased by one letter of the alphabet for each new compilation. Aliases such as D-Drik, F-Drik, H-drík, J-drík, Kirdec, O-drik, Q-drík, R-Drik, V-drík, Y-drík are therefore variations of C-drík main alias.
