What is the Kino group phenomenon? What is Viktor Tsoi’s path from perhaps the country’s most famous stoker to stadiums and millions of fans? And why hasn’t the “movie mania” died down yet? The day the great musician could have turned 60, the Mir TV channel prepared a special issue “Born in the USSR”, dedicated to the legend of Russian rock, and also included many stories in the programming on the occasion of the memorable date. .
Hardcore star named Choi. The one whose songs are still sung by millions of people around the world and whose voice, music and lyrics seem to be in the DNA of more than a generation. We grew up with this music. And our children continue to grow.
“How many songs are left unwritten? Say, cuckoo, sing…”, “But I’m planting aluminum cucumbers in a tarpaulin field”, “Oooh… Eighth grader-ah-ah-ah…”, “Everything is wrong and everything is wrong when your girlfriend is sick… and, of course, “Change! We are waiting for changes!” and “To those who go to bed, have a restful sleep” – these and other lines from the hits of past years do not lose their relevance. However, as the music of the Kino group You can be convinced of this recently: At one of the Wild Mint music festivals, Kino’s songs sounded like Viktor Tsoi had been gone for a short time and was about to come back and collect all his hits together with a crowd. of thousands of people. In Russian cinemas, the film “Assa” (a carefully restored frame-by-frame version of a film in 4K format) is again shown, and tickets for film screenings are sold quite successfully. What is the secret?
Viktor Tsoi’s path began under the steely, gloomy low Leningrad sky of a suffocating boiler room in the women’s hostel. However, it will take a little time, and a simple stoker will light a real flame in the hearts of millions of people. He will be idolized. He will be envied. They will want to die for him, but he will manage alone. He dies at the height of his glory. The faster you die, the less trouble, but more fallen angels. Tsoi did not claim the title of angel either during his lifetime or after his death. Here, as they say, there are no illusions. And this, in principle, makes it akin to many of those whose letters are already carved in the subcortex of consciousness, and not rewritten with the characteristic handwriting in black notebooks.
But they love him not for his angelic behavior, but for his rebellious spirit, freedom of expression and thought. For trying to live in such a way that it is, and not that it seems. And if someone considers freedom to be an illusion, then Choi could argue and argue with any philosopher, if they were at the same kitchen table today, and “if there is a pack of cigarettes in your pocket, then everything is not so bad.” today”. .” Connoisseurs would argue. But even they sing the songs of the Kino group between yoga and spinach shakes.
On the day the musician would have turned 60, the correspondents of the Mir TV channel not only released a special film from the Born in the USSR series of programs, but also prepared their stories for the anniversary of the St. Petersburg artist.
So, for example, Andrey Zakharov, a correspondent for MIR 24, looked at the famous Blokhin yard, 15 on the Petrograd side, where for almost two years the artist worked as a firefighter in the legendary Kamchatka to avoid accusations of parasitism, and gave concerts. unofficial here along with other rock musicians. He also attended a rehearsal of the St. Petersburg Polytechnic University youth choir, where the hit “Kino” entered the repertoire on the anniversary of the Soviet rock legend.
– We must try to resist this intensity of emotions, – explains the artistic director of the youth choir “Polyhymnia” of the Polytechnic University Ivan Chekodanov in an interview with the correspondent of the TV channel Andrei Zakharov.
And where in today’s St. Petersburg to look for places associated with legendary musicians, and the music of foreign artists was inspired by Viktor Tsoi? – You can meet the correspondents of “Mir” in the program “Special report” and, by the way, in the same report you can hear how the “type of blood on the sleeve” sounds performed by the string quartet and the orchestra”. Flying”.
Everything is passed down from generation to generation. That is, if my parents listened to this music, I listen to this music, respectively, my children will also listen to this music and I am sure they will love it, – says Anastasia Feoktistova, leader of the string quartet and Letania. orchestra, in an interview with the film crew of the television channel “Mir”. One day I was passing by a volleyball court near my house and suddenly I heard some familiar music. I thought some older guys had already come to the site. And she noticed with surprise that very young schoolchildren listen to “Blood Type”. They played the whole album. And they sang together. And they knew it by heart. And I thought: maybe this is a sign? Should we play this song too?
Correspondents of the MTRK Mir culture department, like millions of other people, are wondering: what is the secret of the Viktor Tsoi phenomenon? How did he manage to fall in love with so many people belonging to completely different trends and even times? After all, there was something so subtle and elusive about this man that it drew him like a magnet. At the same time, Tsoi himself always seemed as distant as possible. Universal love, glory, veneration: he did not seem to take all this seriously.
Artemy Troitsky once spoke very precisely about this: “Where did this metaphysical firmness of Tsoi come from? “Eastern” origin? Punk hardening? I think it’s something else. If I understand Tsoi’s nature correctly, then I can say that we have a rare type of born hero. This is a person who goes through life not so victorious, but with a complete feeling of being a character from an adventure novel or an action movie. He is lonely, independent, noble, and this is not a pose, but the norm of life! Consequently, he perceives all the blessings of life, temptations, market conditions, etc. calmly and with a slight contempt, as he befits a true cowboy…”.
How the anniversary of the rock legend is also celebrated can be seen in the special issues of Mir correspondents on button 18 and the Mir24 channel, as well as on the social networks of the radio and television company. (here the transition to the site for sewing on the link 🙂
