V-A-C Live is proud to launch its future Moscow home GES-2, with GEOMETRY OF NOW, an investigation of sound through site-specific interventions in the space of the former GES-2 power station.

GEOMETRY OF NOW reflects Russia’s strong tradition in electronic music and rich history of experimentation with sound. The focus of the project will be a series of newly commissioned installations reclaiming the raw structures within GES-2, an interdisciplinary lecture and workshop programme developed around topics in sound art studies, and performaces that reconfigure the architectural space. It brings together both internationally renowned and emerging artists and musicians working across a diverse range of genres, from RP Boo, Mumdance, Lee Scratch Perry and Terre Thaemlitz to Florian Hecker, James Richards, Sergey Sapozhnikov, Richard Sides and Jana Winderen.


The performance programme begins on Wednesday 22 February when American composer/guitarist Stephen O’Malley (from Sunn O))) ) collaborates with Moscow-based musician Alexey Tegin, known for his interpretation of ritual music of the Bon tradition from Tibet. They will perform from the basement level, which was originally the power station’s boiler room, set below the vast interior of GES-2.


The project is curated by Mark Fell, a multi-disciplinary artist based in Sheffield, UK. He has been producing music and sound art since the 1990s and is widely known for exploring the relationships between popular music styles, such as electronica and club music, and approaches to computer-based composition with a particular emphasis on algorithmic and mathematical systems.


Fell said: “For me the most interesting aspect of the space, an imposingly beautiful pre-Soviet power station, is its temporal physiognomy: a site of discontinuity between deconstruction and reconstruction. It is a place where possible histories and possible futures interrogate one another in a play of reciprocal disturbance.”


GEOMETRY OF NOW takes place at a pivotal moment in the history of the GES-2 power station which is soon to be transformed into an exciting cultural destination. Offering new opportunities for artists and audiences on a local, national and international level, it will become the first major venue in the city of Moscow for V-A-C, due to officially open in 2019.


Among the line-up of artists and musicians in GEOMETRY OF NOW are: 
Ryoko Akama, Oren Ambarchi, RP Boo, Alexey Borisov, Georgina Born, Theo Burt, Ivan Bushuev, Christophe Charles, COH, Crys Cole, Inga Copeland, Charles Curtis, Equiknoxx, Errorsmith, Luke Fowler, Gleb Glonti, Jacqueline Kiyomi Gordon, Will Guthrie, Russell Haswell, Carl Michael von Hausswolff, Florian Hecker, Kozo Inada, Philipp Ilinskiy, Jlin, Sergey Kasich, Karina Kazaryan, Alexander Kislov, KTL, Kurvenschreiber, Okkyung Lee, Bruno Martinez, Dmitry Mazurov, Richard McMasters, Mumdance, Stephen O’Malley, Lee Scratch Perry, Pita, Eliane Radigue, James Richards, Ripatti, Carol Robinson, Sergey Sapozhnikov, Hannah Sawtell, Alexander Selivanov, Anthony Shakir, Boris Shershenkov, Adrian Sherwood, Richard Sides, Laurie Spiegel, DJ Sprinkles, Vasily Stepanov, Alexey Tegin, Terre Thaemlitz, Conor Thomas, Rian Treanor, Keith Fullerton Whitman and Jana Winderen.


A book and record will be released after the event documenting the spaces, exhibitions and commissions.
