Igor Baskin and D-sound project in the Benois Wing

24 april 2017

On April 24 an experimental music project will take place in the Benois Wing, Hall 78. 

Russian experimental group D-sound project with musician Igor Baskin will "play" the picture of avant-gard artist Pavel Filonov "The German War" (1915).

Painted during the First World War, Pavel Filonov’s The German War is stylistically similar to two other compositions — Untitled (1917) and Untitled (1919). It also has much in common with the Cubo-Futurist works of Kazimir Malevich, Lyubov Popova and Nadezhda Udaltsova.

The picture is painted in restrained grey-brown tones and divines the contours of Filonov’s future works. Following the artist’s desire to convey the dynamics and chaos of destruction, the forms break up into “splinters”, reuniting in crystals and new variations.

This is the fifth music performance within the joint large-scale project with the Russian Museum on creation of "musical copies" of the known paintings from an exposition of the museum. Earlier, the collective had interpreted Wassily Kandinsky, Ivan Aivazovsky, Jasper Jones, Mikhail Vrubel.

April 24 at 4 p.m.
