Traditional Scheme

by Kirill Shirokov



The composition for five improvisers was written at the
beginning of 2020 suggested by Sergey Krasin as a sidepiece
for one of the episodes of the play “The Golden
Donkey. White Composition” (Electrotheatre Stanislavsky).
Five logics with different backgrounds, techniques and
internal projects are combined in a fifty-minute flow
filled with obstacles. Here, the predetermined modes of
interaction, structure and some of the written out sound
materials serve as starting points for the play of energies
clinging to each other, opposing, extinguishing and arising
again within the quintet.

Work on the release had two stages: before and after the
large lockdown. Thus, we have collected this sound action
twice: first we found it in the picture of our usual social
life, and then we brought out the previously found material
from the experience of isolation reflection, which reveals
(perhaps unbeknownst to it) a new saturation.

Kirill Shirokov

Our freedom was framed by a timer and a chart with user
instructions: «Get from the depths of your subconscious,
the most important thing that is in you and warm it up at
the right time to a golden crust. Don’t forget to add it to
the rest of the dish». I’m sure it turned out delicious.

- Sergei Khramtcevich

All is precise, clear to the full, but is always left for your
consideration, incredible responsibility and boundless
freedom, everything is woven into one and you feel it but
the thought that there is something, that you will still hear,
never leaves.

- Alina Anufrienko

Dance in the presence of time. It didn’t just look at us,
and we didn’t just control it. We took time by the hand
and went into the whirlpool.

- Peter Ototsky

Here I am in a small room, and we are not alone, these
rooms flicker, and we turn into some other spaces. It will
never end, and when it ends there will be no stop.

- Vasilisa Filatova

Fifty minutes is a little and a lot. Here it turned out that
every minute is also a little and a lot within itself. Listening
and interaction during the performance are intertwined to
the point when your own sound and silence are no longer
distinguishable. And the feeling of constant detailed
contact between all the participants even in the most
intense sections of the performance goes beyond the
boundaries of what is permissible ... It was an experience
of total connection.
