OneBeat Russia!

OneBeat Russia!

OneBeat Russia brings together nine socially engaged musicians from Russia and the United States to compose, create and perform original music, and explore ways that music-making can build community across cultural and geographic divides. Anton Maskeliade participates in the program as organizer and musician.

OneBeat Russia is comprised of 3 one-week residencies, starting in the medieval city of Suzdal, continuing to Sviyazhsk Island and Kazan in Tatarstan, and ending with a week in Moscow, co-organized by GROUND Khodynka. In each residency location, OneBeat fellows will create original music, lead youth workshops, and do sound-collecting expeditions with folk musicians. The group will also give performances in Suzdal’s city center, in Kazan (at Smena, Sol Bar, and Ugol), and in Moscow, at Powerhouse Moscow (June 24), culminating in a final performance of our adaptation of L’Histoire du Soldat at GROUND (June 25).

OneBeat is cultivating a pioneering international network of leading artistic, technological, and social innovators in music. Designed and produced by the groundbreaking New York-based music organization Bang on a Can’s Found Sound Nation, OneBeat employs collaborative original music as a potent new form of cultural diplomacy.

Maskeliade was the first Russian OneBeat fellow in 2012 when the program started. Gig in Washington:

Maskeliade Street Studio is a social project where the microphone and instruments are placed in the middle of the street, and anyone can come up and strum / sing / yell whatever they want. We create a live musical performance in which every passer-by becomes a musician.

The video was shot in Taganskiy park in Moscow.
