The Fifth Dimension of the Odd Flat project 15.11.2010 17:13

The Virtual Encyclopedia of Russian Recordings for the first time steps out from the Internet into real world. This will take place in Moscow Mikhail Bulgakov Museum, where The Fifth Dimension of the Odd Flat project comes to life.

More than hundred records from the virtual collection helped to enliven the writer's memorial museum permanent exposition by filling it with 1900-1930s music that surrounded Bulgakov and his famous characters. Audio samples will accompany visitors in their journey from Bulgakov's Kiev home musical memories to Moscow's infernal communal flats of the 1920s reconstructing the musical atmosphere of The Master and Margarita as well as sounds of the radio set beside Bulgakov's bed in the last year of his life.

The project is created by Alexey Petukhov, the Editor of the Soviet Chapter of the Encyclopedia.

The presentation of the new audio exposition will take place on November, 20, 2010, at 5pm. A small show of vintage sound playing devices from Bulgakov's era will accompany the event.

Address: Moscow, 10 Bolshaya Sadovaya, apartment 50 (The Odd Flat)

Expansion of the website topic 28.04.2010 16:32

Dear friends, we are happy to announce the expansion of the website topic toward Soviet period. In order to concentrate Participants efforts on the most scarce and interesting records we are setting the top date for records of the state monopolist company Gramplasttrest on the end of WWII. However, this limitation will not be applied to the local plants that had their own recording studios. This limitation is also not applicable to reissues of pre-WWII records, pretty much in the same way as we always had for Soviet reissues of pre-Revolutionary records. The name of the website is correspondingly changed to The Encyclopedia of Russian Records.

What remains of the people when theyre gone? Love in the hearts of friends and relatives, memory, and of courses their deeds, especially those that were intended not for the profit and gain, but for the welfare of all people by giving away a piece of Self to the others. One of such deeds of Howard Friedman was writing of The Collectors Guide to Gramophone Company Record Labels 1898 1925 that he devoted the last years of his life. In November 11, 2008 he passed away, but the Guide is here, and a piece of his Self that he put into this work will forever remain embedded into its lines! Unfortunately, while the Author was alive, we did not manage to fulfill our promise translate the Guide into Russian language and publish it on our website But as they say, the beauty of a debt is its payment we publish in two languages Preface and Acknowledgments, Introduction and the most interesting chapter for all portal participants - the Russian Recordings. And it is only the beginning!
