Yesterday I rode on bicycle to concert Other Orchestra plays The Prodigy. On the road from Polevskoy it was rainy from the beginning, but later rain stopped; in some places road was more like a pool and at the entrance in Yekaterinburg my bike was all in dirt. All in all way to city and to CK Ural, in which concert took place, went without problems. After 10 – 20 minutes of waiting in CK hall, security let people go into main concert hall. There is no sense to describe concert itself, everything is seen on videos; I’ll just say, that first part was relatively calm, people sat and listened to music, but in second part fire started :-) .
To say a little about Other Orchestra : it exists for 5 years and mainly performs concerts in CK Ural and periodically plays music in other cities. They play music from classics and Jazz to electronics, Trip-Hop and disco. The Prodigy has no need to be introduced, but in case if somebody does not know : they are one the firestartest electronic musical groups of 90ties, 2000ties and, it seems that, 2010 – 2020ties.
There were interpretations of such compositions as : Charlie, Omen, Firestarter, Breathe and others; there was also compositions from new album The Day is my Enemy : Wild Frontier, Nasty and Ibiza. And at the end there was explosive Voodoo People. After concert there was night time ride to home, first in the city, then on the highway, that was lit only by diffuse light of clouds with white roadmarks, that guided me this night. At 2 o’clock I was at home, I rode at this day 110 km, this was unforgettable : with whistling in the ears after loud music and after dancing till drop down, I wish more such symphonic concerts to be performed.
From time to time I’ll publish videos from concert, I have around 7 GB of them.
