Let’s play together?

A doppelgänger phenomenon has existed for centuries in mythology, literature, visual art, and later cinema and television. It is about the idea of a biologically unrelated but look-alike, or a double of a living person (usually considered evil version of the original). So far, I’ve never met one in my life. However, if I meet him one day, the first thing I will ask him (or them) would be: “Let’s play together?”

MESSIER 87

April 10th, 2019 became a turning point in history of astronomic observations. In the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) project’s boundaries the first direct image of a supermassive black hole at the center of Messier galaxy was presented. This image provided a test for Albert Einstein’s general theory of relativity. M 87 black hole is characterized by strongly defined accretion disc which consists of large body of incandescent matter. MESSIER 87 for symphonic orchestra (2020) is based on idea of spinning that chaotically gives birth to tempests, hurricanes, and explosions. It is an approach to this gigantic object through clouds of dust, its close overflight observation and departing back to cold depths of outer space.

The piece MESSIER 87 was premiered on September 15th, 2022, by Saint-Petersburg Academic Symphony Orchestra, conductor Fedor Lednyov.
