a common space & database for harmonic overtones
Two people from different cities met in the summer of 2010 – Svetlana Sukhanova, a Krasnoyarsk pianist, and a jew's harp player from Irkutsk – Vladimir Markov. The jew's harp and the piano are very different-sounding instruments, but in the difference is hidden not only a certain difficulty for the performers, but also an amazing, unusual beauty, which was what prompted the musicians to come together as “1046” and to embark upon a course of creative experimentation. The name of the group, “1046,” is the distance between their two cities (in kilometers). Eventually they added other instruments to the original two – ethnic flutes, the Kalima, synthesizers. The distance does not hinder the duo and when they meet, the musicians create a multicultural space, viewing various musical environments, strata and traditions through their own worldview – which is what has found its expression in this, their first album.
