121. Nikita Rasskazov, The value is in achieving failure and surmounting success. The dark contains all the light you need
This selection is united not so much musically in its form rather than by the sense it gives — the sense of aid and balancing light in the conservative dark of today. This was an attempt to abandon constant analyzing of the context and language each author builds in own work and let more subtle connotations in, let them make you feel lost and blur, alternate your perception of time blurs. The opening piece is by Ukranian-born composer and electroviolinist Valentina Goncharova, who has special affection to Venice where she lived in the tent and performed in the streets long ago. Her material from 1980-90’s was released this summer by amazing label Shukai from Kiev. Among others, both artists and labels, are those who I have personal or imaginary connection in Russia. Nikita Rasskazov is a Moscow based forever music amateur and activist, an occasional dj and music curator for V-A-C Foundation.
