While walking in the park, you can hear New Year's jingles and wishes from Zaryadye friends, different “space” styles compositions, and a new musical logo of the park.
The music logo is a special sound identifier that will be used in the soundtracks and videos of Zaryadye.
“As the theme of Zaryadye Park we have chosen Modest Mussorgsky's “Dawn on the Moskva River”, an amazingly beautiful and picturesque introduction to the opera “Khovanshchina”. By the way, Internet search engines, in response to the query “Dawn on the Moskva River” give images of the rising sun over the Kremlin, over the highrise on Kotelnicheskaya Embankment, and more recently, over the River Overlook of Zaryadye Park. The overture by Modest Mussorgsky is a recognizable, very understandable symbol. It was hard to find a better musical basis for creating the sound mnemonics of the park”, said Ivan Demidov, the director of Zaryadye Park.
The musical map of the park is dedicated to one of the main events of the upcoming 2021 – the 60th anniversary of the first manned flight into space, the flight of Yuri Gagarin. While walking in the park, you can now immerse yourself in the romantic and slightly naive atmosphere of the 60s and 70s, or listen to modern music created by artificial intelligence. About 1000 tracks from all over the world written in the period from the middle of 20th century to our time, were selected for the map.
The broadcast takes place in 5 zones – each has a separate musical arrangement.
For example, Media Center hosts the New Soviet Wave collection, contemporary Russian music inspired by dreams of space. Dozens of young performers in the 2000s energized Space Age Pop – the music from the late 50s and 60s, lighthearted and romantic, funny and mysterious. It was performed by large pop orchestras and ensembles of electronic instruments. This music balanced between fears of terrible aliens and excitement of the coming space exploration.
For Nature Center, which houses an almost space object Florarium, the music of the Space Disco genre was chosen, the origin of which took place in the late 70s and coincided with the release of the Star Wars saga. Visitors of Nature Center will hear hits from Space, Zodiac, Jean-Michel Jarre (a pioneer of electronic music, also known as the director of grandiose music and light shows), Russian bands Kim & Buran, Zero Cult and others.
Ice Cave is a home for foreign and domestic neoclassicism sounds. The part of Ice Cave consists of works by Kirill Richter, the author of the official theme for the 2018 FIFA World Cup broadcasts, the author of soundtracks for the sci-fi blockbuster “Draft”, Ivan Tverdovsky's drama “Jumpman” and performances by Sergei Polunin. You can also hear the works of Max Richter, a British composer, author of music for films and documentaries, the best film composer in 2008 according to the European Film Academy, as well as Ludovico Einaudi, the Italian grandeur, known for the soundtracks for the films “1 + 1”, “Insidious” and others.
Calm electronic music in the style of Space Lounge Beats sounds on the territory of the park, and in the playground area – soundtracks from cartoons and science fiction films about space are being played.
Guests of Zaryadye can hear the New Year wishes by the artistic directors of the Stanislavsky Electrotheatre Boris Yukhananov and the Praktika Theater Marina Brusnikina, the director of the Museum of Cosmonautics Natalya Artyukhina, the voice of the Moscow Metro Yulia Romanova-Kutyina, the singer Monetochka, musicians Yuri Bashmet and Ilya Lagutenko, actress Varvara Shmykova and many others.
