Last April, Le Pont hosted an annual festival of experimental music Hors Normes, which included Swiss-Russian project «Periferiya». The project summarized short-term research residency of the Russian experimental musicians Mikhail Myasoedov (Brinstaar), Boris Shershenkov and Kurt Liedwart. During the festival, the artists performed with their Swiss colleagues together with the Llama/OLO duo and Christian Müller.
These joint performances led to the decision to give several joint concerts in Russia and continue cooperation with more Russian musicians and sound artist, as well as to make a recording at the Russian studio.
Christian Müller supported the idea with enthusiasm as his studio residency in CCI «Fabrika» allows him to join the concerts of Llama/OLO in Russia. Russian members of the «Periferya» project as well as the stars of Russian sound art, musicians and composers Alexey Borisov and Oleg Makarov will also join the Swiss musicians.
In September, musicians will perform in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Yaroslavl, and Zelenograd. The tour program is available here
