about

Vlad Dobrovolski – The Drums of the Fore and Aft
A Musical Marine Journey

Winter, spring and summer of 2014.


I tried to rework sounds from my immediate environments – seas, places where I stayed and everyday life.
I was inspired by absence of people in a blue sea. Absence can create silence that is more unsettling than merely contemplative.

I prefer to think about absence rather than silence – absence of sound is much more active, compelling a listener to fill these gaps in.
Physically and metaphorically it creates a space for multiple projections.

When I produced “The Drums of the Fore and Aft”, I kept as true as possible to my heartbeat by humming some instrumental parts in my head and then leaving it silent.
