MUSIC SPACE ARCHITECTURE FESTIVAL 


The Music Space Architecture Festival is dedicated to understanding the links between two semantic systems — architecture and music — and questioning how can we make these connections on various grounds. Architectural acoustics, providing the ability to perceive sound in space; time in music and space in architecture; subordination to numbers, which are shown through proportion and rhythm, and sometimes its avoidance. The festival unites the program of lectures, performances, sound installation, film screenings and a conference in an attempt to identify and present different areas of interaction between music and architecture, sound and space.

Curators — Sasha Elina, Yuri Palmin
General partner — Moscow Architecture School MARCH
Dates: December 1–9, 2018
Location: ZIL Cultural Center, Moscow

SPATIAL COMPOSITION #3.X
The ‘Spatial composition #3.X’ for two improvising ensembles (7 soloists, 10 performers) is a text score that defines the form of the performance, sets the sound fields and trajectories where the participants’ movements, sound and space interactions exist in an unusual play that gives different musical and sensual result. The performance took place inside the halls and corridors, outside and even on top of the building.
Composer: Vladimir Gorlinsky
Instruments: megaphones, electronics, voice, string instruments,
noise objects, accordeon, flute, saw.
Duration: 110 minutes

GOST 111-35
A site-specific sound installation that reimagines and reveals the sonic memory of the glass. The title refers to the official Russian State Standard number of clear sheet glass — “GOST 111-35”. Along with concrete and steel, this material was very popular in the Soviet Union in the 1930’s when The Vesnin brothers’ Likhachev Palace of Culture (ZIL) was designed. The installation consists of six metal constructions, each with pieces of glass suspended from them. The sound signal sent from the speaker cones attached to the glass sheets is composed of highly obscured sounds taken from film scenes of the Moscow urban environment, along with Soviet and Russian songs of different years — all of these blending with more abstract noise material that shapes the piece.
Artists: Anton Kuryshev, Andrey Guryanov

Duration: 24/7

LARGO MA NON TANTO
The film about a flickering time of a journey across an unfamiliar space. The video that shooted in Japan, the electronic sound and field recordings, the italian text from the 'Travel Diary of Luigi Pelli of Aranno from Saint Petersburg to Lugano in 1829' are strangely connecting through the unexpected resonances and random coincidences. Together they form an unstable object, where the architecture and music, moving and still meet.
Director: Alexandra Karelina
Producer: Sasha Elina
Sound: Alexey Borisov, Darya Zvezdina
Text: Yuri Palmin
Duration: 21 minutes
