Best comments of audience 2020

07.18.20 On #4 so far. This is very varied and enjoyable. Craig Ketter plays Bob Cohen's difficult piece superbly. The noise piece by Nadzharov is now moving into contrasting volumes, very interesting. Zvolinksy's demonstration makes me curious to learn more, I will look him up. Nizamutdinova's improvisation had me inhabiting an alien forest for a while there, I loved it. I would suggest however that all SoundCloud links should be embedded just like the YouTube videos are. The opening of the SoundCloud in a new window or tab will probably cause confusion or at least timing issues for many viewers.

07.18.20 I really enjoyed "Rhapsody In Discomfort#3: Covids “Я” Us," as composed and performed by Dan Flanagan. I'm listening from Sacramento, California, U.S.

07.18.20 Great!!! Thank you for everything. I will enjoy going back and hearing things again! Too much to think of and to say, right now I am so hungry! Thanks again.

07.18.20 This festival is off to a wonderful start, and I am looking forward to this entire day - from New Jersey (USA)

07.20.20 Dan Flanagan создал изумительную концептуальную какофонию. Он доказывает , что даже катастрофа может быть вдохновением для создания истинного искусства.

07.20.20 Many good choices. I love so many of these performances. My favorite is Catherine Neville's piece. #35

07.20.20 Amazing program!

07.20.20 I love the sense of movement in Neville’s Danses, and the way Dan appears to perform the piece “to” the lithograph in the video. It surely contributes to his interpretation to be able to look at the image that inspired the piece as he plays—and adds to our experience too! Flanagan, really resonated with a lot of what I’ve felt during my own time in lockdown. I loved the violin piece that was composed and performed by Dan . A very clever, relevant and remarkable piece.

I wrote the cello parts as a heated, dramatic dialogue that seems to promise calm before a sudden and aggressive stop to the piece.

The electroacoustic duet Nizamutdinova/ Golikov is a musical technological project. The performers of the Duo are participants of international festivals, winners of international competitions, have orders abroad. They played their music at such venues as museums, theaters, concert halls, universities in Russia and Europe.

Nikolay Golikov is a programmer, a sound artist. He performs on modular synthesizers of his own creation (as developer). 

R. Nizamutdinova is a composer (and project manager). She creates synthesis and sound processing on a laptop by using different DAWs, programming environments and soundscapes. 

The genre in which the musicians work is electroacoustic improvisation using the latest technologies. The recorded sounds are modified on the computer, the generated frequencies are layered on them. Different timbres of the modular synthesizer sound are against this background and woven into the electronic sound palette. The Duo was founded in 2019 In the next few years we hope to win several competitions called "Artist in residence" to work and perform our sound projects in the institutions of the studies of electroacoustic music and technological art. We also are open for invitations to festivals and concerts as performers of avant-garde music and program designers of technological art. Please, don`t hesitate to contact us by e- mail

10) Антон Ровнер. Созерцание для скрипки и фортепиано (памяти Бориса Петровича Юргенсона)

Anton Rovner more

 "Жизнь Бориса Петровича Юргенсона была совершенно особенной, уникальной жизнью. Борис Петрович изменил ее, выражаясь словами классика, nell mezzo del cammin. К пятидесяти годам став профессором, доктором геолого-минералогических наук, он, правнук знаменитого русского нотоиздателя XIX века, друга Чайковского, Петра Ивановича Юргенсона, встал перед выбором: или возглавить кафедру петрографии, или продолжить семейное дело. И, насколько крутой поворот он совершил в своей жизни, настолько же серьезный поворот ему удалось совершить в ншей музыкальной жизни. Ведь петрография (от греческого— камень) — искусство тончайшего среза с минерала. И таким же тонким, природно-объективным срезом с музыкальной жизни Москвы становился каждый концерт в Гостиной Юргенсон. А ведь за 15 лет существования гостиной на Хохловке их прошли сотни. В свою очередь, таким же срезом международной музыкальной жизни оказывался каждый конкурс имени его знаменитого прадеда. Прищуренным, нацеленным в самую суть взглядом естествоиспытателя он глядел на нашу суматошную и сумбурную артистическую среду. И всякий раз точно выхватывал самое главное, и говорил об этом в необычайно точных и емких формулировках. Очень жаль, что его интереснейшие суждения о музыке отрывочны, и теперь их придется собирать по кусочкам. Наши с ним разговоры о путях и судьбах музыки зимой, у горящего камина, и в глуши летних муромских лесов нельзя забыть... Когда в конце 1990-х гг. он пришел в музыку, мало кто верил, что Борису удастся сделать хоть что-нибудь в том застойном болоте, в котором находилась современная музыка в те годы. Но он, при поддержке семьи, упорно шел к своей цели. Состоявшийся в 2001 году конкурс имени П.Б. Юргенсона казался неслыханным чудом. Вкладывая в это свою огромную энергию, прислушиваясь к мнениям крупных музыкантов, Борис организовал первый в России музыкальный конкурс международного масштаба. За 14 лет существования конкурса он открыл несколько звезд европейской величины. Увы, на последнем, восьмом конкурсе ему так и не довелось присутствовать. Он состоялся за девять дней до его кончины. Борис был преданным другом всех музыкантов — от выдающихся до самых молодых и низвестных. Он старался помогать каждому, несмотря на колоссальную занятость. И одновременно мы все были его друзьями и могли обратиться к нему за помощью и советом в любое время. Пять лет назад он взвалил на себя и заботы об издательстве "Композитор", достигнув таким образом своей мечты и поравнявшись со своим знаменитым предком. Увы, слишком мало времени ему отпустила судьба на вторую, музыкальную половину жизни. Сколько интересных проектов, и издательских, и концертных, осталось незавершенными. Сейчас вся забота о наследии нескольких поколений семьи Юргенсонов легла на его дочь Анастасия Юргенсон, прекрасную, талантливую женщину."  Ф. М. Софронов

2) Leonid Zvolinsky. X-SynapseL для блокфлейты и лайв-электроники.

 live-on-the-spot during the actual broadcast

Леонид Зволинский - композитор, саундартист. С 2018 года - один из авторов в научно-просветительском исследовательском проекте "Hearing X" при NTT Communication Science Labratories (Япония), научный руководитель Макио Касино (Makio Kashino). Проект с разных позиций исследует специфику восприятия звука человеческим слухом. Леонид Зволинский создаёт музыкальные композиции с комментариями, демонстрируя различные явления звукового восприятия, такие как аудио-иллюзии и другие. С октября 2019 года проходит обучение в Лаборатории Сугуру Гото Токийского университета искусств на факультете Аудио-музыкального творчества. Родился в Рязани. До переезда в Японию в 2017 году, жил в Москве. Выпускник композиторского факультета Московской консерватории (2014 г, класс проф. В.Г. Агафонникова), кафедры Теории музыки Колледжа имени Гнесиных (2008 г), факультета звукорежиссура аудиовизуальных искусств Института кино и телевидения (ГИТР, 2015 г, дополнительное образование). 

 X-SynapseL для блокфлейты и лайв-электроники - пьеса о внутренней коммуникации, об искажениях при передаче информации, а так же о последствиях, когда в результате таких трансформаций накапливается критическое количество ошибок. Попытка найти исходные смыслы порождает движение, неизбежно уводящее всё дальше в сторону. Три элемента в самом начале пьесы - ритмическое движение, акцент и длинный звук с модуляцией - получают развитие, трансформируются, постепенно смешиваются и образуют новые формы. Партия электроники происходит из взаимовлияния с партией флейты, создавая подобие синаптических связей между музыкальными элементами.
