Welcome to Aquarium On The Web - the English
page of the multilingual site of Aquarium!
Этот сайт, созданный ценителями творчества БГ и группы АКВАРИУМ, давно нуждался в реконструкции и сейчас перенесён на систему, позволяющую администрировать его многим редакторам и переводчикам, а также вносить всем желающим свою лепту в его оформление.
Для окончательной доработки новой версии нужны ещё веб-программисты, знающие друпал, или желающие и могущие в нём разобраться. Далее нужны дизайнеры, художники и просто люди, которые хотят поучаствовать в разнообразии внешнего вида страниц сайта, который пока (в стадии доработки) находится по адресу aquarium.surreallife.de
Если есть интерес и желание - пишите на email@example.com
Творчество - дело настроения, но программист нужен срочно - без него нового сайта не будет, хотя работы там на один день. Если вы сами не можете, но хотите помочь - спросите ваших друзей и знакомых - может быть среди них найдутся те, благодаря кому виртуальный мир АКВАРИУМа станет не только информативным, но и креативным центром разных людей, объединённых резонансом с этой группой.
В ответ на частый вопрос: нет, денег не будет - это чисто благотворительный проект, основанный на желании поделиться прекрасным с другими людьми. Если вы не согласны и у вас есть советы о том, что и почему нужно делать - не пишите. НУЖНЫ ТОЛЬКО ТЕ, КТО САМИ ХОТЯТ ТВОРИТЬ!

Summer Songs 2005:
New Summer Album Coming Out!
Aquarium is currently finishing a compilation album expected to be released in July! The "Aquarium Reggae" collection will contain sixteen songs from different periods of Aquarium. "Rastaman's Words" will feature for the first time on CD "Rastaman's Words"!
On June 8, 2005, Aquarium and Jivan Gasparan played their first concert in Geneva Switzerland. The concert was a huge success. It is reported that Victoria Hall had never seen such crowd reaction.
This concert came on the heels of Vladislav Mitsovskij joining Aquarium as new group manager the first of June. Under new management, Aquarium is already beginning innovative new projects.
Also, this month, it is a pleasure to report that Andrei Surotdinov has resumed touring with Aquarium. after completing other projects that have kept him occupied the last few months.
Following a short rest on the shores of Lake Geneva, Aquarium resumed their rigorous "Zoom, Zoom, Zoom" tour schedule with back to back concerts in Moscow, Kiev, and Odessa. Then on to the final trip of the season through Siberia.
The Siberian concerts concluded with an amazing outdoor concert in Kemerovo. This gig marked another beginning, as the first outdoor concert in recent Aquarium 3.0 history.
The successful "Zoom, Zoom, Zoom" tour of 2005 culminates with two concerts in Moscow July 1 & 2 at A2. These concerts co-inside with the beginning of Tibetan Cultural Festival where Aquarium also particiapated.
Expect fewer concerts in the upcoming tour season. So plan early to get tickets when Aquarium is in your area.
In other projects, Boris is completing recording of the "Aeroship" radio programs for the summer and compiling music for some upcoming films.
Aquarium's concert in Geneva!!!
Aquarium will be playing only one concert in Europe on the "Zoom, Zoom, Zoom" tour before summer. This concert will be at Victoria Hall, in Geneva, Switzerland on June 8, 2005.
21.05.05 New radio program by Boris Grebenshikov "Airship" about his favorite music will come out every Sunday from 22nd of May at 2:10 P.M. Moscow time. You can listen to the streaming feed of "Russia’s Radio".
Recent News of BG’s Current Projects
Beginning Sunday, May 22, BG will host his own radio program on state owned Radio Russia - 13:10 on the dial. This will be a one-hour program featuring Boris’ favorite music. The program will start with music of the late 1960’s from the U.K.
This type of program is quite a novelty. Nothing like it has been done before in Russia. Nor am I aware of anything similar in the U.S. This program is a testament to BG’s popularity and clout in Russia. There are few VIPs that could accomplish something like this. Via satellite radio perhaps we all can tune in.
Boris has also been working with fellow Russian popular musicians and government officials to create a state-sanctioned venue to help young unknown Russian musicians get recognized and recorded; as well as offer a place for the stars of Russian rock to meet and exchange views.
BG still has some work ahead of him on this idea as some of the other rock stars who attended the meeting last month in Moscow seemed more concerned with furthering their own interests (such as, getting paid) than with helping others.
Boris Grebenshikov wrote all the songs for “Zoom, Zoom, Zoom” during the summer of 2004, while he vacationed on the Mediterranean Sea. Grebenshikov has said about the new songs: “The history of this album is the most extraordinary of all the albums that have been recorded in my many years in music. For almost a year, we worked exclusively on the other album, “Reproductor”. Then suddenly, during my summer holiday on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, I have written 16 new songs in one month! As a professional, I speak frankly: this does not happen! 16 songs in one month are a miracle that happens only in special times and places!”
BG brought the new songs to the members of Aquarium and in autumn of 2004 they recorded them in Livingston Studio in London. When the recorded songs were brought home to St. Petersburg Aquarium realized something was not right with the songs. That which had sounded so well in London was not “caustic” enough in Russia. Therefore, according to BG, large chunks of the album were re- recorded in the group’s studio in St. Petersburg.
This album truly reflects the origins of its creation. It is an album foretelling the coming of summer that encourages the listener to throw off their coats, go outside, and live!
