«Bikapo of the Heavenly Forest» is a concert-mystery involving sound kinetic sculptures, structures and objects by Herman Vinogradov. Bikapo is a number of unique sound structures and metal objects acting on the principle of free vibration, as well as a total sound installation built using them. In the space of this installation action is unfolding that combines sound, light, and natural elements — earth, fire, and water. As the installation author said, Bikapo is a consciousness, the bearer of which he was himself, the way to freedom of creative expression through a ritual addressed to the primordiality, «primordial human essence».
