Адрес страницы
Boris Gagloev is a composer and a guitar-player, a representative of the generation of the musicians performing academic and jazz avanguard. He combines various tendencies of post modem, new jazz and orient cultures in his creations. Having refracted these tendencies through the prism of his world view he creates a music language that combines the abstractiveness and the cleanness of the images with the subjectivism and eccentrics of their realizations. The abstractiveness and eccentrics have become the result of his separation from the primitive realistic philosophy of the traditional art. However the music of Boris Gagloev possess well-built aesthetic and philosophy that is based on the well-known ancient ideas of the universe and personal intuitive experience of the composer. It is practically impossible to determinate Boris Gagloev's style. It can evoke various allusions from the formalistic constructions of the 20th century to the Gregorian choral. Habitually the compositions represent permanent twinkling of styles or their eclectic combinations. The eclecticism, been risen to the level of the conceptual value, however becomes one of creative principles without which the music of Boris Gagioev couldn't exist. The spontan improvisation is the - main preference of the composer in which he realizes himself in a best way. Having not been painted in one color his improvisations habitually are nonfigurative and a little bit static, but they never evoke the impression of monotonous and ennui. They remind to the very fast rolling roundabout of rhythmic and intonation symbols, dynamic collapses and rises which are brief in time but tremendous in amplitude. The form could be both static and developing by changing the emotional plentitude and colors. The questions concerning the primary human nature and universe are the center of Boris Gagioev's interest, but those problems don't prevent him to combine the meditation and asceticism with irony and epatage when it is necessary.
