Mnogoznaal – Hotel “Cosmos”

Albums are called synteypes (from the word cinema) for good reason – the performer believes that visual perception is important in his music, that is, the imagination, with which the listener will draw pictures in his head in Maxim’s scenes.

By chance it somehow happened that for his two plates (“Ye” and “Kids See Ghosts”), released this month, the topic of freedom turned out to be central. Continue reading
