Description

Alexei Borisov - Before the Evroremont

Outside of his native Russia, Alexei Borisov is probably best known as a live performer with a sound and visual style that make his performances transcend the usual gig situation and resemble Beckett-style absurd theatre. Their soundtrack is a live collage often based on domestic or everyday material: field recordings of arbitrary soundscapes and conversations, mostly done diary-style with a cheap dictaphone, Borisov reciting his automatic writing-type lyrics, snippets of music from the radio, separate instrument tracks recorded for his other musical projects, solo playing on various instruments in a sleepwalking style or ”blindfolded”, as he has described his working (anti-)method with computers. The elements are mixed and cut up through effects in a manner which remotely resembles dj’ing with its sharp timing – Borisov’s long experience as a live dj can be felt – or a manual telephone operator turning his work at a switchboard into poetry, as David Keenan noted in The Wire magazine: ”The whole is rent with fuzzy, intercepted conversations that sound like archived wiretaps”. ”Before the Evroremont” was recorded live at Helsinki’s Avanto Festival in 2001.
