Valentina Goncharova: Where music goes

What was the path of a musician in the USSR, who decided to leave classical music for avant-garde and electronica? How did one get signed up by an Enlglish label with just one demo-record? What was the 1980s improvisational scene, which united musicians of different generations and genres? These and other questions are discussed by V–A–С Foundation music prorgammes curator Nikita Rasskazov and avant-garde composer and electric violinist Valentina Goncharova.
