Help TwinPeaks release their first CD


 

 

 

 

 

Bridging the distant worlds of the American and the Russian music scenes is an artistic collective based in the San Francisco Bay Area, appropriately claiming the name Twin Peaks. Formed in 2009, Twin Peaks is a band that loves playing live shows for screaming and dancing fans as much as working patiently in the studio on new releases. The repertoire of this musical group includes a growing set of original compositions as well as a selection of international cover songs. The styles of music played by Twin Peaks range from indie-rock to swing to bossa nova. While being true to their roots, the band seeks arrangements that incorporate fresh and vibrant sounds to help reach a broader audience. They call it intelligent rock.

Hometown-NYC

Biography
DODO orchestra

This NYC based miniature orchestra is a very new formation, but gaining popularity by day. Their musical backgrounds differ, but their taste for quality music is same. They all have musical education and experience, and readily incorporate their knowledge and abilities in interpretation of sophisticated and crazily diverse repertoire. Pianist Leonid Gelman is doing most of music arrangements for the group, and is equally at ease playing guitar and saxophone, when a song calls for these instruments. The leading vocalist Maria Sokolovsky is classically trained opera soprano(MM,Mannes College of Music), who is tremendously happy in that “crossover” collaboration. She is finding that quiet amusing and pleasurable to be able to sing all the great melodies that world has to offer. The bayan player Dmitry Sokolovsky is a graduate of Gnesin Academy of Music in Moscow and one can hardly find a tune that this musician hadn’t yet play. Their sought-after Bass player Dmitry Ishenko has graduated both from Berkeley and New England Conservatory and often can be spotted at the top notch jazz venues of New York City. And finally, their percussionist, Boris Zeldin, also trained as a piano major, well known for playing around with many rock bands.
It’s hard to define their style; in short, they are acoustic band that plays “con gusto” world music that appeals to them, that is Tango, Samba, Bossa nova, American, French, German, Italian and Russian retro, all sang in original languages.

Oleg Buryan – ArtWork “STAKAN”


 

 

 

 

 

 

St-Petersburg-Moscow
Installation consists of two parts:
The first (the visible part) – the oldest architectural form -ziggurat
A second (virtual part of the installation) – an interactive project for the Google-maps.
“In the archeology of Russian life, we will come back to the faceted glass always. This is our symbol,
but rather- just the matrix. This bowl is not just for birthdays, but also a memorial bowl. It balances life and
death. And means serious things.”
Viktor Erofeev
The purpose of the work- to fix a vanishing archetype in the space of visual culture (in the form of monumental
ziggurat) and synthesis of ritual space with virtual ..
Abstract:
The word for a glass(STAKAN) allegedly comes from Turkish, where «tustygan» ,or “ tostakan “(and in the modern Kazakh lang.) -denotes a bowl.
Galahad – Knight of the Round Table King Arthur and one of the searchers for Bowl the Holy Grail was known
for spiritual purity and courage, and the only knight who found the Holy Grail.
Galahad is also a sort of native grape, which produced an excellent low-cost wine.
