Oleg Nesterov's innovative multimedia project SCHNITTKE LIVE (E+U) will be presented in the DK Rassvet on January 25. An unusual program has been prepared for the audience - an exhibition-concert, where a video installation by the artist Dina Karaman will be shown, and works by the Soviet and Russian composer Alfred Schnittke will be performed on the acusmonium sound system.
“Acousmonium is needed for live performance of multi-channel music: dozens of loudspeakers are placed in a certain space, which are controlled by the director from the remote control,” the national tourism portal Russia.travel reports.
The conductors of the "loudspeaker orchestra" will be composer and artist Anton Yakhontov, curator of the international festival of electronic spatial music "Acousmonium", and Oleg Nesterov himself ("Megapolis"). They will perform their spatial version of Schnittke's well-known melodies written for Soviet cinema: Khrzhanovsky's "Glass Harmonica", Shepitko's "Ascent", "Still I Believe..." by Romm and other films.
