Bathed in the light of history, the walls of Dom Radio have a deep meaning to musicAeterna. They form a space for invigorating rehearsals, a space voiced and discovered by musicians through performances, a space full of thoughts and discussions on various aspects of culture: philosophical disputes and talks on modern period poetry, Byzantine chants and music of the future.

Dom Radio’s key mission in musicAeterna’s activities is to be a place where new art is born without limits or boundaries. That process begins in the silent solitude of Dom Radio, where, invited to Saint Petersburg by Teodor Currentzis and the musicAeterna art committee, the resident develops his ideas. Even before his vision is brought into life, his ideas are reviewed by the musicians who let them sound during creation. The outcomes of that creative laboratory descend into the main halls of Dom Radio, where they meet the audience. Temporarily separated from their phones which symbolize everyday matters and troubles, the listeners walk up into the thundering marble shadows to face something new — and to take an essential part in the ultimate birth of the ideas conceived during the residency.


Upcoming residency events

An event of Dom Radio residency

To commemorate Eduard Srapionov, Dom Radio’s spaces will host an interactive installation of Papa Srapa’s handmade synthesizers, a screening of a film about the Russian underground scene of the 2010s, a specially created dance performance, as well as performances by modern representatives of the noise and performative Russian scene. Dom Radio will present to the audience a multi-dimensional portrait of Eduard Srapionov, an engineer, musician and a man who influenced several generations of Russian underground noise artists. All funds raised from ticket sales will be spent on vinyl release: the release of the Papa Srapa project recording made in November 2021 at the DIY studio in Kratovo will be our offering to the memory of this artist.

Blending film, analogue video and computer-generated graphics, crossing different formats and reinterpreting archives, Anya Tsirlina and Sid Yandovka create experimental art projects that elude exact definitions.
