SOUND ART PROGRAM – February 4, 19:00
Taiga Creative Space
Meow Moon (Russia)
Meow Moon is the project of Ilya Sadovsky and Chris Mgassa, enthusiasts of the analog synthesizer sci-fi sound from Kaluga. Their music could be characterized as atmospheric ambient and drone with intermittent retro-futuristic noises, synthesizer melodies and mesmerizing bass patterns that enter like waves into a collective audio stream that is pleasing for the ear. The sound artists aim to immerse listeners in meditation, pull them away from the daily bustle and unite them with the sound universe by providing soul food and resonances for a renewal, thus making them ponder what is important. In their own words, this is “something like a DNA massage”.
Nikita Bugaev (Russia)
The music of Nikita Bugaev from Irkutsk cannot be associated with any phenomenon in the landscape of young Russian electronics: he is remote from all the processes that are conspicuous nowadays, including the rethinking of dancing culture and radical electro-acoustic experiments. Perhaps the best description of the horizon of his creative interests is the tagline of Danish label Phinery that released Nikita’s debut album “Keila”: the aesthetic lexical combination of “art // sound”. This is ideal pop music of the future that is rooted in the discography of labels Mille Plateaux и 12k and, at the same time, despite the wealth of cultural connotations, resists any critical description.
