The RUSSIAN SPACE AGE NIGHT is presented in collaboration with Moskow Diskow.

Last years 40 year "first man on the moon" anniversary left us with a full month of repetitive small steps for man and even more giant leaps for us all in international western media. All good and well, pretty impressive, but we've seen that by now...

What about Spudnik, the first earth-orbiting artificial satellite. Laika, the first mammal in space, Yury Gagarin, the first hu-man in space, Valentina Tereshkova, the first wo-man in space, and Alexei Leonov, the first man to walk in space.... Havent seen much of those early space-age troopers have we?
|Cine|Sonic| & Moskow Diskow will now give you the opportunity to brush up on your CCCP space age image bank with a special cinema screening of CCCP in Space, a tell tale compilation of early russian space age imagery especially made for |Cine|Sonic| by SISB3000 accompanied by a live soundtrack played by O.M.F.O. A dreamlike mesmerizing trip through space where indeed before no one was bold enough to go before... Those Russians did, you'll see!

The second stage of this night we will be decdending back to earth, scourching through the atmosphere with a dj set by Moskow Diskow. In your dreams you shure will be floating through space feeling like Leonov once did.

The spectrum of O.M.F.O.'s work is wide. He produces soundtracks for adult video clips and composes jingles for Turkmen radio stations. He contributes his tracks to the Russian made blockbuster Manga and wrote the soundtrack for the first ever Central Asian pavilion at the Venice Biennale. OMFO gives solo concerts, performs as a sound artist and collects fields recordings. Welcome to the electronic Walachia! where folk meets Kraftwerk and where electronic bizarre instruments and electronic sounds combine to create a whole new musical dimension.

MOSKOW DISKOW is a collective of artists/djs that create an imaginary Moscow discotheque filled up with exotic, thrilling and teasing airs. As a tribute to the Telex classic, `Moskow Diskow` will deliver to you a seductive cocktail of funny’n’funky, glittery disco, sweaty Italo, neowave and vodkabeat. From Chicago to Berlin, from Tokyo to Vladivostok, featuring local and international artists, with an eye on Russian electronic scene. No brain drillers behind the decks and no statues on the dance floor.
