Artist statement by Ilia and Kirill:

"Before the concert, we hadn't discussed much of what we will be playing. Kirill proposed to place the "June '21" score on the table, to follow the impression, the feeling, the direction of what it suggests to play. Sometimes we noticed how one part of the score or another would lead us to new ideas whilst we were playing.

It was a special concert because of its circumstances. We decided to have one big table for both our setups, and to be standing up during the performance. Kirill used some objects, electronics and field recordings. Besides zither, Ilia played on a tamborim and music box, instruments he hadn't yet used before.

The surrounding environment was very different from the sterile and almost claustrophobic one at the earlier concert in June 2021. At the beginning people were still chatting, and when they stopped we began to hear the sounds from the street outside.Luckily, our recorder managed to capture this atmosphere perfectly. And, while it's not necessarily a high quality recording, it has its own character that effectively translates the music we played that night."
