The Album is about transformation of the concept of home against the backdrop of two wars. A bomb shelter in Tel Aviv, a snow-covered Novoslobodskaya street, Mitzpe Street with the smell of the sea, the tree-lined Vykhino district — I rush through them as if in a dream.
The album title is a reference to transfer USSR stickers from the 70s. Sliding pictures capture the moment when a part of life has already been imprinted on tiles, while its continuation hangs in the air. In this movement — lies all the beauty and horror. I find home in it.
Almost all tracks on the album are collaborations with my friends, musicians, and alumni.
It’s as if I’ve had an epiphany: for the first time, I’ve gone beyond my self and found new strength in collaboration and synergy. It seems that with this strength, one can endure any war and truly feel support.

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:
