On September 1, together with the British project Wet Sounds, RED BULL MUSIC FESTIVAL will hold Russia's first underwater concert at the Chaika open-air swimming pool, which was built in 1957 and still retains its retro charm.
The idea that music can become a comfortable environment for a person to be alone with himself came to many visionaries, starting with Eric Satie. In the 20th century, it was formulated by an outstanding theorist and practitioner Brian Eno, who coined the term “ambient” to describe such music and became the founding father of a whole new trend, which then grew to be a separate universe. What if you could dive into music which harmonizes your emotions, just like you would into warm water? By the way, this is not a far-fetched fantasy — you will soon be able to experience it.
A British sound artist and media artist Joel Cahen created his Wet Sounds project, reflecting on how the perception of music changes in water. Wet Sounds is an unusual concert that takes place in a pool with specially installed audio systems: under and above the water surface. The sound under water is perceived completely differently than above the surface: under water, sound travels 4.5 times faster than in the air, and vibrations are transmitted directly, bypassing the eardrum. Wet Sounds aqua-concerts let you sink into the sound from head to toe — literally. Wet Sounds successfully tours the world. Pierre Henri, Nurse With Wound, Cluster and Mira Calix specially composed soundtracks for these concerts.
The underwater concert will feature a 76-year-old American multi-instrumentalist Laraaji, one of the pioneers of the new-age and ambient philosophies. In the early 70s, Laraaji lived in New York, admired Eastern mysticism, and performed in parks, playing a vintage stringed instrument called “zither.” In 1978, Brian Eno saw one of Laraaji’s street performances and helped him record and release an album called “Ambient 3: Day of Radiance.” The release introduced this American musician to a wide audience, and his next 40 albums made him a true legend of meditative music. Laraaji will share the stage — or the diving tower to be precise — with French pioneer of ambient music Ariel Calma, as well as Joel Cahen from Wet Sounds.
Russia will be represented in the line-up by Red Bull Music Academy alumni from different years: concept curator, multi-instrumentalist and improviser Dima Ustinov, as well as musician and composer Maria Teriaeva, who explores the possibilities of modular synthesizers. Two graduates of RBMA 2018 in Berlin — Sasha Vinogradova and Atariame — will present the first joint live performance; and improvisational musician Vlad Dobrovolski will perform his works from his “Natursymphonies” series.
Diving Into Sounds at the Chaika pool will consist of five separate sessions, each 2 hours long, with their own casts of artists. Tickets for each session are sold separately. The number of tickets is limited.
