Russian Outskirts

“Ghettojukebox”

All the sound’s fat and the juiciest original groove is always on the periphery. He is born in the backyard, in the underground, on outskirts. Proceeding from this I left Petersburg. For several months I made a number of musical sketches in the industrial Kirovo-Chepetsk and completed this experiment in the border Svetogorsk, among the moist forests of the Karelian Isthmus.

Ghettojukebox is not an album, it’s a finger pointing to what’s going on. Eight compositions – eight metaphors for different, quite specific situations that took place in the Russian reality in the fall of 2017.

If images, such as photography, can reproduce the moment, then the sound restores the experience of the moment itself. Any sound is born in the oscillation, the reality vibrates chaotically, and tongues shake the air of what’s going on, filling the space with feelings, giving birth to a deep, unique vibe, in a tangle of perfectly natural rhythms.

My artistic task was to fix impulses and vibrations of the situation inside the situation and to transform them into the vibrations of your speakers. Using the natural plasticity of sound as a material, I made a kind of map, under which the listener has the opportunity to set foot on the territory woven from the material of paneled five-story building and the blackened boards of forgotten Russian villages. In the ratio of noise and silence to hear the mysticism of the forest, to feel people, dogs and the life of the Russian periphery.
