Beginning in 2003, Peter Smiloff broke into the scene under the moniker HYMS, taking the notions of "do-it-yourself" to a new level. Growing tired of being limited to one instrument, Peter took a break and re-emerged as A Vacant World, introducing a element to his songwriting and performance.
Wanting to take atmospheres and ambiance to a new level, A Vacant World contains electronic beats, as well as modified guitar riffs, creating harmonies to create the overall landscape that draws the listener into a world that becomes sonically beautiful & emotionally devastating all at once. Staying true to the D.I.Y format, Peter Smiloff takes on all responsibilities and recreates everything in a live setting without resorting to pre-recorded music or the help of another person. In some live shows, imagery & film sometimes accompany the music to paint the picture for the listener.
