Force Carriers present: ‘Eternal Wanderer’

Травень 12, 2017

This friday, 19.05, me, Apex Sphere and VJ Solar Olga will play for the first time as a trio - Force Carriers at Unsound Dislocation X Mental Force festival. Our A/V project ‘Eternal Wanderer’ is a tribute to a unique artist Jazep Drazdovič (1888-1954) who became the first Belarusian on the Moon, Mars, Venus, Saturn and other planets.

Unsound Dislocation X Mental Force Festival - 19-21.05.2017, Minsk

Красавік 20, 2017

In 2008 Unsound Festival has changed my life by connecting me to other artists (Pinch, Artem Atrashevsky) and giving a chance not only to show my own music, but also to (re)present the Belarusian music culture abroad. So i’m glad to reciprocate by co-organizing the Unsound Dislocation X Mental Force festival in Minsk together with my Mental Force Festival colleagues.

And though festival organizer work eats half of my brain, i’m going to play there too: together with Alexei Usinovich (Apex Sphere, S4DS) and Volha Salakheyeva (VJ Solar Olga) we’re preparing a debut collab performance as Force Carriers. The project is dedicated to the great Belarusian artist, thinker and ‘eternal wanderer’ Jazep Drazdovič (1888 - 1954).
