World Music quartet, the Berkeley-based Gojogo, will perform new original instrumental compositions set to films from the compilation “Masters of Russian Animation,” August 15 and 16, 2009, at the Community Music Center in San Francisco. In 2006, Gojogo, who Stewart Mason of All Music Guide calls, “an uncategorizable delight,” began composing musical scores to accompany these short animated films created in an oppressed Soviet Russia between 1969 and 1984. Gojogo first premiered their compositions-set-to-animation to critical acclaim in 2007 in San Francisco.
“Masters of Russian Animation” exemplifies some of the best work of Russian film directors who, with little resources, abandoned the real world in favor of one over which they had complete control. Through innovative techniques like stop-motion animation, cut paper, and over-laid glass, these films defy “low budget” and convey meaning relevant to any time and any place.
