Marynka Nicolai-Krylova - Maxim Chapochnikov

Piano & Voice by Marynka Nicolai-Krylova

Marynka Nicolai is born and raised in Moscow, Russia. She has been a real pioneer as can be noticed in her intuitive writing and performances, “honest art expressions”. Marynka gets her inspiration of each and every moment itself. Her music can be described as improvisations flowing through her own experiences, senses and observations of life. Her artistic labeling lists a musician, a composer, an actress, a teacher, and an inspirer.
Her musical search spans from the music of Scriabin and Debussy to the Oriental music such as Indian raga’s.
Since recently Marynka is developing an original concept of Instant Music, which allows her to smoothly enter the realm of improvisation.

Electronic Art by Dr. Goldfinger

Maxim Chapochnikov aka Dr. Goldfinger is a dj, researcher and artist (b. in Ural, Russia) who moved to Amsterdam in 1988. Here he became fascinated by a growing electronic/ambient music-scene. Simultaneously he developed interest in “exotic” musics from around the world, since Amsterdam offered boundless access to various cultures. The results of his research of ethnic in Siberia and Central Asia influenced the artistic works of Dr. Goldfinger. His art projects are musical production, soundinstallations, radio programs, conceptual events, dj sets and cooperation with other likeminded artists.
