One of the most talked-about movie composers, Hildur Gudnadottir will present the live soundtrack to the iconic Chernobyl mini-series for the first time in Russia! Tickets sales are on sale at kassir.ru.
Berlin-based Icelandic composer Hildur Gudnadottir rose to worldwide acclaim thanks to her groundbreaking soundtracks for the movie Joker (a work, which gained her the Oscar, Golden Globe and Soundtrack Stars award of the Venice international festival) and mini-series Chernobyl by HBO (the soundtrack to this series was awarded with Grammy and Emmy awards).
Chernobyl received critical acclaim, gained 3 Emmy awards and became one of the highest rated series of all time, scoring 9.5 out of 10 on IBDb website.
The musical building blocks for the entire soundtrack were recorded on location in Ignalina Nuclear Plant, a decommissioned power plant in Lithuania, or were made with the composer’s voice. Hildur Guðnadóttir, Chris Watson and Sam Slater visited the plant in August 2018, spending a day recording machinery, 600 meter long rooms, and exploring the sonic potential of the decommissioned power plant in which 2000 people work each day to disassemble - its sheer scale found its way into the music; it was instrumental in composing this score.
Sonically the performance is a deeply immersive experience. The audience all face towards a single central stage, surrounded by 6 large stacks of powerful speakers, with a further 4 speakers suspended overhead. Sound comes from all parts of the room, sometimes so soft it doesn’t feel amplified, sometimes so loud it feels it could push you over.
“So far we’ve planned just a few dates of Chernobyl live show, – said Gudnadottir in an interview to Meduza web portal (one of the most popular news websites in Russia), – Usually we choose the location ourselves, looking for an abandoned factory or power station. The location is vitally important for the show, because the production is very complex and sophisticated”.
This is why the show on April 28 in the industrial surroundings of CCA Winzavod is the unique opportunity to immerse into the haunting sound and visual atmosphere of Chernobyl!
