YGO _ is a multimedia project that includes 3 artists from St.Petersburg,
Russia. YGO is a synthesis of experimental music, video art and unique
ancient Russian singing tradition "Znamenny Raspev" (znamenny chant). One of
the goals of the project is to familiarize the general public with the
history and treasures of Russian Spiritual music and liturgical chant.

As happens so often, the musical structure of the half-forgotten ancient
tradition of Znamennij Raspev has something in common with modern music
concepts. Electronic and 'just intonation' music use the same modes as
Byzantine and Old Russian monodic singing. The essence of the YGO project is
to achieve the synthesis of these two concepts. Thus the project is neither
reconstruction nor restoration of ancient tradition. It's authentic and
distinctive music supported with original video art and may be more likely
referred to modern experimental and avant-garde music trends.

If, Bwana is the experimental music/sound art project of Al Margolis,
currently located in Chester, NY. If, Bwana is sometimes a solo venture and
sometimes includes other musicians. This evenings' version will also feature
longtime collaborators Dan and Detta Andreana.

"If, Bwana is some sort of evil genius working with raw materials which are
never adapted to a genre or a context, because they create one in that very
moment." ­ Massimo Ricci, Touching Extremes
