Following his return, he collaborated with some Russian musicians and released Euphoria in 1997. Pavel decided to work with music producer Irina Mikloshich and together they released an album titled Utopia which was followed by Atlantis.

Life and Death of Pavel Kashin: The Parkour Guru not The Russian Composer
Questions about Pavel’s death became an uproar after he was mistaken to be the Parkour Champion who died in 2013, however, the composer is very much alive. But here is what really happened with the actual dead Pavel Kashin.
Pavel Kashin was a renowned Russian Freerunner who was perfect in his acts. Originally from St. Petersburg, Pavel took the path of being an acrobat or rather in its redefined term a Parkour Guru. If you are wondering what Parkour is, we’ll tell you.
Parkour is a technique taught in the military for easy jumping, rolling or leaping over objects within the quickest time. Pavel being adventurous went extreme and was able to take the darnedest steps involved in Parkour.
The Parkour hero died in July 2013 while making one of the deadliest moves in his craft. To make the particular act even more dangerous, he chose a three-foot wide ledge rooftop which was surely his second mistake because while attempting to do a backflip, he missed a step and fell to his death.
The distance he fell to from the top of the building where he tried to do the trick from was estimated to be a distance of 200 feet. This has been termed one of the greatest falls in history. His last moments were captured by his friends who were his cheerleaders and upon his death, they wrote a tribute referring to him as the bravest of them all.
Cautiously, his parents agreed to upload videos of their son’s accident on the internet in order to create an awareness especially to those who practice the act without safety clothing. Many who have watched the video of his death think it should be added to the Fox series 1000 Ways to Die.
Pavel Kashin the Russian Composer is still very much alive and kicking with the rest of us. The story about his death should be taken as that of a mistaken identity where he shares the same name with another of his countryman who was popular in his act till his death and even after his death.
