  • Dance of Silence
    Jeanna Turchina

    & Contemporary Dance Atelier

    Peace and quite
    Gathering figures to the pattern step by step, feeling the tread. With no intention and no direction.. Just being as is... Just following outstream. I'm coming back like a story to tell.
    Where is the beginning and where is the end? It is audible, it is feelable... It is clear...
    You can feel it when lazy morning noise come into your open window like a cloud of hopes and expectations.. like fuss... like ado... And you expect some kind of a tram clank or a train honk.. Buzz of a wedding cars... Or a funeral orchestra?
    I'm listening to it
    I investigate
    I feel the water drops from a tap.. I feel the flour whispering from the paper package. I pour this sounds.. I slop them away!
    Sounds around me like signs. They are like a kaleidoscope glasses gatehring into amazing and unstable images..
    But the only thing I wonder..

    Where does the silence live?..

    Magical Power Mako

    distant concert

    MAGICAL POWER MAKO (Makoto Kurita) was born at Izu-Shuzenji, Japan in 1958.
    With a natural talent for playing the piano and composing music, he started his music career and laid the cornerstone of his musical foundation in 1973. His first album "Magical Power" was issued in 1974 and crossed a multitude of musical boundaries. A toy box of noises, soundscapes, explosions of distorted fuzz...not eccentric as such in the music scene at the time, but quite a few people were surprised and amazed at his avantgarde explorations and progressive techniques.

    Mako can play more than a hundred instruments, and his songs are filled with a plethora of those.
    His attitude towards musical performance and theory might be described as highly unique and individual.
    Over his more than 30 year long career Mako is here again. Unfortunately he won't be able to come to Rostov but he will present his brilliant music and his new album distanty.
