about

Though recorded before the Russian invasion of Ukraine in February of 2022, Oleksandr Demianenkoโ€™s ๐ผ๐‘› ๐‘€๐‘’๐‘š๐‘œ๐‘Ÿ๐‘ฆ ๐‘‚๐‘“... cassette very much serves as a meditation on the importance of preserving art, culture and roots at a time when war threatens to erase all of them. Dedicated to the memory of the late Olga Fedoseevna Sergeeva (1922-2002), a folk artist whose voice is featured in legendary director Andrei Tarkovskyโ€™s 1983 film ๐‘๐‘œ๐‘ ๐‘ก๐‘Ž๐‘™๐‘”โ„Ž๐‘–๐‘Ž, Demianenko immerses tape-looped snippets of Sergeevaโ€™s singing - culled from field recordings made in her village - in layers of synthesizers and pedals. The result is an invocational auditory experience that, bridging the worlds of traditional folk music and modern ambient, coaxes Sergeevaโ€™s spirit out of the past and into our tumultuous present. The fact that Demianenko used first-takes exclusively only intensifies the living presence already embedded in this striking music.


At the same time, ๐ผ๐‘› ๐‘€๐‘’๐‘š๐‘œ๐‘Ÿ๐‘ฆ ๐‘‚๐‘“... contains deeply personal dimensions for Demianenko. โ€œAs a child, I spent a lot of time in my homeland. I often heard the folk singing of my grandmother and her friends,โ€ he says. โ€œTo me, [this music] is also a fond memory of my childhood and adolescence in my native village in the forests of Ukraine.โ€ So while the pieces certainly exude the aforementioned somberness, theyโ€™re also gently pastoral and heartening reminders of a homeland and Demianenkoโ€™s love for Ukraine.
