"New Ukrainian Soundscapes" project

Curator of project – Lyubov Morozova

Project coordinator – Yelena Borischpolets




«New Ukrainian Soundscapes – it is the unique program which doesn't have any analogues in the modern Ukrainian festival life. It is unique because we select the brightest music scores of our contemporaries, thereby turning them into live history. In most cases, modern music of our authors, sounds seldom after the premiere, it is accepted as some avant-garde and experimental music. We want to show that it has already passed the laboratory stage and now it is a way to reflect the modern events in an amplitude from their acceptance to escapism. And it is music that wants to be close to its listeners and to speak about their experience and their sound world.»

Lately the musician has been moving in the direction of the sound sculptures, constructed by the means of synthesis and stratifications, distortions and the other sound processing techniques. Compositions of Heinali were released on Sony Interactive Entertainment, Fluttery, NEN, Paradigms and the other labels.


Alexey Shmurak (objects, Kiev). Was born in Leningrad, lives in Kiev. The composer, the pianist, the keyboard performer. Works in many formats, including song projects and lectures, prefers multidisciplinary performances.


Maxim Kolomiyets (objects, Kiev). Composer, oboist, musical program curator of the “Gogolfest 2017” festival. Cofounder of Ensemble Nostri Temporis and the head of ancient music ensemble Luna Ensemble. The participant of numerous Ukrainian and foreign festivals, his music was performed by ensembles musikFabrik (Cologne), Lions Gate Trio (the USA and Europe), Neo Quartet (Gdansk), National symphonic orchestra (Kiev), Masma (Moscow), Vladislav Pesin (Moscow), Yan Peys (London), Hayk Melikyan (Yerevan), etc. Since 2015 has been the solo oboist of the "Ear ensemble".


Composers Aleksey Shmurak and Maksim Kolomiyets, who in 2007 created Ensemble Nostri Temporis, in cooperation with Oleg Shpudeyko, acting with Aleksey as a part of the “Bluk” duet will present the "My favorite thingsmusical and theatrical performance.


The purpose of the project is the reactualization of the used things, leaving our life. These things have been familiar to us since the childhood. Things are born and die, leaving memory about them, defining our life, changing ourselves. The objects, once habitual for us, that made a huge part of our life are slowly forced out by their more modern analogs. Dial phones, home video projectors, cassette tape recorders, old children's toys, vinyl players are outsiders of a modern material world. Leaving, they take away with themselves our memoirs, dreams, hopes and just daily thoughts.


The idea of the project lies in reviving the forgotten objects, in breathing new, may be only sound life in them, in making them talk to us, tell their story in a new way.


Various auxiliary sound devices, such as modular synthesizer, contact microphones, pedals of effects processing and others whose oblivion is still ahead will join the company of material outsiders.


The sound component of the project, as envisioned by authors, has to be organically connected to visual one – light, video, scenery objects – and their symbiosis is interwoven into surrounding space, considering its features as much as possible. Thus, finding by a landscape its own unique voice and a visual image through scoring it by many-voiced chorus of the dying-away bodies of things from our past will be a result of the project.
