An official statement bills Zerkalo is “an ongoing musical experiment built around a synthesis of the scientific precision of Heinrich Mueller’s work and Victoria Lukas’ lyricism.”
“Through the coupling of electronic music and video art,” the note continues, “Zerkalo became a vessel for reconstruction and sublimation of memories, reflections and visions into audio visual dream world.”
Zerkalo refers to Tarkovsky’s 1975 film of the same name (it means ‘Mirror’), and there’s a strong visual and literary current running through the project, with allusions – some obvious, some embedded – to the likes of Virginia Woolf, Friedrich Nietzsche and Marina Tsvetaeva.
