How is Russian classical opera related in its very origins to the swamps of the Kostroma region? What role do field recordings with ‘marsh singing’ and toad voices play in contemporary music practice? What should one talk about with a tea mushroom and which Soviet scientist discovered the secret of creating ‘dead water’? Ivan Martov, editor at Gorky.media, talks to Eugene Voronovsky, composer, sound artist, founder of the Cisfinitum project and lecturer at the School of Design at the Higher School of Economics. An extended written version of this conversation can be found on the KROT website.
This episode is in Russian.
