Born in Moscow on December 7, 1960, Borisov graduated from the Moscow State University where he had studied History and Arts. His controversial performing career (as a guitarist) began in the Center new-wave group, in 1980. Next year, he formed the Prospekt mod-band, and re-modeled it in 1985 as the shifting Night Prospekt with then-partner Ivan Sokolovsky. After the dissolution of the band in the beginning 1990s, he surfaced then in the "noise reconstruction and techno acoustics" duo F.R.U.I.T.S. with Pavel Zhagun (also known as Piezo) and in various short-lived art/noise/industrial acts Like Joint Committee, Atomic Bisquit Orchestra And Sever.

He and his previous associate, the experimental Finnish sound-sculptor Anton Nikkila, established in 2000 their own N&B Research Digest label.

Among his other collaborations are the joint projects with the performance-group "North" (Russia), KK Null (Japan), Jeffrey Surak (USA), Leif Elggren (Sweden), Kurt Liedwart (Russia). Borisov also collaborates with the video-artist Roman Anikushin, multimedia-artists Aristarh Chernishev and Vladislav Efimov and also with Olga Subbotina, Moscow theatre director. Lately Borisov prefers solo music career. He also works as a DJ in clubs and on radio and contributed as a journalist to some Russian ("Bulldozer", "Ptjuch", "Fuzz", "Downtown", "man'Music", etc.) and foreign ("B'Mag", "Technikart") magazines and newspapers.

He is portrayed in the 2013 music documentary Elektro Moskva. Alexei Borisov in January 2015 founded Fake Cats Project with Igor Levshin and Kirill Makushin
