Chernyshkov’s new work is performed in a “vintage” technological environment that the young Russian composer has found to be incredibly stimulating and liberating for his original and unbridled creativity. In this experiment, Chernyshkov “tackles a score that brings together everyday tools-devices (elevator relays, dot matrix printers, obsolete floppy disks, etc.) and the contribution of two unconventional poly-instrumentalists. With an approach to the space that again seeks to reach past the traditional concept of concert to engage the audience in an immersive experience of proximity, increasingly essential to the most advanced electronic musical experiences”.
