Just advertisingI said, «Or I wrote the music for the film and get four of them, or I take my song, and fuck you with your film.» And hung up. Ohrenevshy Andron three days running, for some directors, beat his fist on the table and yelled: «I am. Do not know anything, he dork, but I want his stuff.» Three days later I signed with a valid contract. In '23 I became the youngest composer who wrote music for the film...

The greatness of Alexander Gradsky

According to the materials: "musica.com.ua"

The greatness of Alexander Gradsky can be no doubt

The greatness of Alexander Gradsky can not be doubted. It is documented by official regalia, confirmed consistently sold-out concerts, reprinted in the press. The oldest character of Russian rock mythology, he can not stand it when it labeled, such as "the patriarch of Soviet rock 'n' roll" refers to the reporters with a large grain of salt, and loves to turn your interview into real intelligent execution. Sharp mind, explosive temper, with serious ambitions and justify all this talent - Connect with Gradsky requires caution sapper. Arranging a meeting in the hotel "Central", we, of course, some experienced spiritual awe. Of course, we knew that Gradskij worked for several years in the Donetsk Philharmonic, but by no means certain that the memories lead him to the blessed spirits, we did not. Too fast time flies. Too good to Carnegie Hall to recall acoustic virtues "Friendship" with affection and nostalgia.

Porter "Central" only reinforced our worst fears. "You have to Gradskij? Come on. Get up, but keep in mind, his mood is not festive."

- To be honest, we did not want to ask questions about the pathos of traditional Russian national anthem and arrange provocations in the spirit of the newspaper "Top Secret" ...

- Yes, still nothing will come of it. So ask.

- We would like to talk to you about the New Year, which is inevitable and perhaps imminent.

- For someone like. Some people, and not live.

- Generally the New Year - a holiday? Or simply mark a calendar?

- No, no, I love this holiday. This is the only day except the day of birth, which I note.

- We celebrate the fact that old. In the year closer to death. Do not you think it strange?

- We do not have aged a year. Only for one day. Getting old year was at a birthday party, a New Year ... It is believed that the nature of just entering a new round. That's the whole point.

- Do you follow all these Eastern calendar, the year of the Snake, Year of the Horse?

- Well, indirectly.

- Red horses can be trusted?

- No, sulfur. Gray. And all fire signs, they are repeated after some long period of time. I do not remember exactly how many. Actually, I do not watch too much, so, oriental something. Although we are also to some extent East.

- Have you noticed how the people's attitude to these nor to innocent little animals? A year ago, everyone said: "Snake - it's wisdom, serenity" ...

- A horse - what is this? Efficiency?

- Maybe reliability.

- Ah! In the sense that it all go? And if she kicks?

- That's right, the year passes, everyone remembers how much any rubbish happened ...

- and knocked on all the animals? No animal is in no way to blame. Actually no - no serpent, no horse.

- Tell me, how on professional soundtracks which one is perfect for the New Year?

- This is what is meant?

- What to listen to? What music?

- Who likes that. I personally have not come across any music festivals. The maximum that you can afford - is that somewhere in the corner quietly, very quietly squealed TV. To it flashed any image. To be able to once again turn to the side of the screen to see what happens there. And say: "Well, your mother shit!" Once again the table. That is, the TV today exists as a discharge factor. When just make sure once again that this shit is indestructible. So that when you come back to communicate with friends and girlfriends, it became clear to you that this is where the real life, then all well and good, and there - another crap. In order to better understand the quality of communication with your friends, you need time to time to expose it compared with something. Preferably in a bad way. This is the maximum that I can not afford a holiday. And listen to the music, I do not really like.

- Regardless of the holidays?

- rarely listen to music. Now, at least. In the car - yes. In the car - very often, but it's mostly something quiet and do not interfere with driving. In a classical concert to go - this event. It is necessary that the ideal was the fulfillment of that was a very good orchestra conductor or a decent great singer. And this is not often the case. Recently, I noticed that I am a supporter of the perfect execution - I am today is not enough to go somewhere and spend time on non-ideal performer of whatever genre.

- A perfect performers exist at all, or an abstraction?

- Perfect for me. Generally - abstraction, of course.

- What are a couple of names.

- It's hard to say. There was a concert Clapton - I went. But the concert, which was Carreras, did not go. Even though I love him, but he was at first, did not act alone, with some kind of a singer ...

- With Sarah Brightman?

- Yes. That's it for a praise, and he - no. I know that he was not in shape. Although I consider it the best. But I did not go.

- And we went to a concert Baskov?

- No, I did not go.

- not ideal?

- You asked if I was on a concert (laughs), I told you to go - no go. You have a newspaper with jokes? (Original Gradskij used another word - auth.) Once that question or I could not interpret.

- God forbid! We just heard that you are very favorable attitude to it.

- No, I can not say about any of our title, I'm sympathetic to it. Simply I did not swear. By the way, in an interview all consider it necessary to say about him something nasty. And I just said it was a successful project.

- That is the success of the project - more merit producers?

- I think so. The fact that I am not a fan of any of our talent artist - it can not be doubted. A project is successful, a lot of advertising. The only thing that I do not really like it - I told the producers it - that's what he just consistently fights for me everything that I did. the repertoire itself. On the other hand, why not? Still, the man sings, among other things. Unlike so many. That's what I said. But this does not mean that I like it.

- What do you think about such projects as a producer Vitas or "Tattoo"? It seems the people there, too, worked well.

- Yes, but you see the point, I "Tattoo" was not at the concert, I saw a couple of clips and do not know if they work alive. For me, the actor begins from the moment when I see how it works on stage.

- where we had a full soundtrack.

- Well, too bad. I think she's at all, even in a very well-known artists. I will not call names. To date, I do not remember any entertainer who would work alive. Somehow I do not remember. Also Kobzon, who always sang live. But he has a repertoire that is quite impossible to imagine that he is some kind of romance singing to the soundtrack. And so, all working under the plywood and it's disgusting. About these artists generally can not be spoken of as artists. This question should be removed. How to be an ongoing issue for the public, which allows itself to come to the concerts, where she vtyuhivayut deception.

- Who is cheating just vtupuyu - written on the posters "live sound" ...

- It's all - the lack of legislation. And the inability to pinch the organizers and the artist himself.

- Legislation there. Perhaps there is no mechanism to take this organizer for any soft spot.

- mechanisms Full. Just fiksiruesh write and act. That's all. The same as with the copyrights. And with the use of newspapers in some hard-hitting words. Unable to attract liability newspaper or magazine - the legislation, at least Russia today is inaccurate in this. Yes, it is possible to establish that was the fact of slander, but clear penalty does not exist. If one person kills another, the precise terms provided for him - 8 years, 12 years or even for life. This is defined. A judge who examines the libel case, it is not appropriate gradation. For him the $ 2,000 - a large sum, because he gets 100. If it has been written - or eight million, then to some Dorenko or its owners would be hurt. I would then be happy and only to those engaged in (well, if it is about me saying bad), I would have had a good way to make money. And so it turns out, people breshut about each other, the newspaper is printed and nothing can be vysudit. Because, in fact, which is why the fuss? Due to the hundred rubles?

- Let's go back to the New Year. Banal question, but can not do without it. What shocked you this year? What struck?

- Of course, on 11 September. Cram every possible cup of patience of civilized nations. Finally, people began to realize that the crazy need to destroy. They should not be allowed to live among normal. They must be destroyed, like mad dogs.

- On some humanity we can not go?

- No, no humanity. These are not people. You know, I may be, I'll be right too harsh. There is a misconception that all those who speak, walk, talk, greet, defecate, eat and drink - it's people. This is completely wrong. It is not a skin color, not nationality, not in the way of life, not religion. Case in actions, actions, sometimes even in the words in the statements. When humanity will understand that it is not people, and begin to destroy them as a stinking dogs or jackals, it will become easier. Destroy or simply evict somewhere where it is impossible to escape. Island, Alcatraz any. To them there like rats, lived and ate each other. Who will determine who is a jackal? Life itself will determine. Also on September 11 ... Of course, the loss of the "Kursk" - a tragic event. But this year, it turned out that we have enough strength to lift it - we did what could not be any country in the world. And many were drowned. And the American boats, and German.

- What place in this series takes you to the death of Harrison?

- Well, of course, that too. But you know, we are all mortal, and therefore the death of any person is not surprising. It is not shocking. Harrison could die this year, and could in fifteen years. It is not an accident. It is inevitable, although it is a pity that it happened today. What else ... my prediction comes true with respect to the reign of President Putin. It is in general more and more doing what I want. If I initially had some doubts, but now they are almost gone.

- In general, you are satisfied?

- And it does almost the same thing that I am eight years ago suggested - how can you be unhappy? Moreover, it does so more effectively than I would have done. I'm in his place would have committed follies, I would be slapped someone in the face and have done a lot of hasty and drastic actions. He does much more skillfully, and it is also a matter of respect. Let's see where it will climb further, as it will continue to get out (laughs), because he had to get out very seriously. There are some errors, I would have done in his place in a different way, but who knows, maybe, big politics - this is what I can not boast of great skill. I am not a politician and never will not, but to predict something I can do. Strange as it seems.

- Do you remember September 11th. There is much talk about what those events were largely triggered by Hollywood, terrorists almost wrote the script.

- Hollywood akin to science fiction writers. After all, so many things science fiction writers predicted long before their appearance, and Leonardo da Vinci - long before science fiction writers. Initially, there is a certain idea, an idea which can be transformed into literature, cinema. And then the idea takes hold of the masses. It's not the first attack on the World Trade Center. Someone really thought that blowing up the two towers, you can cause damage to the ideological. Here you are right. Hollywood itself was preparing the people to ensure that such an attack is psychological damage. And not somewhere out there, namely, the "twins". Although there is a skyscraper, which is much higher than in Chicago.

- It is fair to admit that the Chrysler Building in Hollywood bombed at least.

- Yes, the Empire State Building, too, but that King Kong climbed it on the "twins". But what is surprising is not it. What is surprising is that the characters given more importance than reality. It is believed that if you destroy a symbol, it will be suppressed nation. Psychology of Americans - is child psychology.

- But we are in the same situation. For us, she was a symbol of America. The symbol of stability and security.

- America has not changed. For example, I always knew that America is as vulnerable as any other country. Just one thing for it did not take. And now I came from. For me, the characters do not have any significance. For me specifically killed people and destroyed a work of human hands. It's monstrous. It is foolish to assume that destroying the character inflicts damage ideology. Vice versa. The man who organized the explosion of "twins", hardly represents a plus received the American ideology. Earlier, people were united around abstract things - the flag, patriotism, - and today they're much stronger united. I saw it, came back recently. It's like Russian: until the Germans reached Moscow, the Russian peasant did not move with the furnace. Later, when the enemy invaded the family, children, mother, we turned around and (laughs) started to work.

- Do not you think that in the formation of child psychology Americans also participated Hollywood?

- Hollywood - it is like a general formula. "McDonald's", Hollywood ...

- Another symbol?

- Yes. Hollywood is very different. There's a Woody Allen, and there's this ... "Wag the Dog" - "Wag the Dog" ...

- Barry Levinson.

- Yes. They have different movies. Tales that gather huge audiences. A story can be found anywhere, even a fabulous movie genre. We can assume the tale and "Rain Man", and it is possible surprisingly gentle sentimental story. Under child psychology I mean that everything is painted in black and white colors. Few semitones. For the general public, in the view of Hollywood, should not be distracted by a semitone. Although it is in Hollywood, a negative image was created, causing sympathy. This character was not in the literature. Bad cop. Like Bulgakov - no bad people. It's a long conversation, the truth is not found.

- You are one of the few who does not scold American cinema.

- And how can you blame totally amazing things? Our filmmakers criticized by envy, they are very bad professionals, almost all. If we compare our and American films 50-60s, they are technologically very similar. And thematically similar, although many Soviet films of that time were much better. We had brilliant works such as "New Gulliver" or Rowe tales. And then came the computer, and set all the places. Amerikashki is wonderful used.

- By the way, we had a great surprised to learn that you are singing along with Kris Kristofferson. We did not know what he sings professionally.

- Yes, a very long time. He sings a pop country. We know him well.

- We forgot about the New Year again. You do not have the feeling that the Christmas decorations look like a child, but do not cause the same joy?

- What are you?

- family holiday spirit evaporates, leaving tradition.

- Well, yes, it can be transformed rather a formality. At twelve o'clock we are sitting at the table, but after an hour the children go to a disco. And they sit with me? Children need paint sensations, fireworks.

- New Year's Eve Donetsk turns into a bloodless war zone: all the shooting, continuous fireworks. It seems that in terms of child psychology, we can give odds to the Americans.

- Russian it replaces the lack of money. People are happy that there is still a force to pull the trigger. It's fine.

- Another traditional question. Where to find you the arrival of 2002?

- Houses. I rarely go somewhere. Once I met a New Year's Eve in Japan. I was sitting alone in a tiny room (in Japan in general, all very small), the table was some sausage, tomato, bottle of wine. And on the TV show sumo wrestling. In Japan, since the New Year meet in a completely different time. It was terrible.

- Thank you. Frankly, before the interview, we pretty nervous. We are afraid of you.

- Well, now no longer afraid of?

- It seems to be yes.

- A vain! It's only begining!
