B. Petrov – Memory, Rock Ballet (1988)
Composed by Boris Petrov who also plays synthesiser together with sound engineer Yuri Bogdanov (of which at least one of the instruments of choice was a SYNTHI-100), this work for the most part is a wondrous example of vintage 1980s Soviet electronica combining glassy space-age ambient, modern classical pop cheese and experimental electro-disco pop in roughly unequal measures. As the titles of the mostly short tracks suggest, this album should be heard in its entirety as a soundtrack to an imagined ballet or similar opus. Preferably one combining various media including film, maybe some live acting and dancing, and one where stage performers and audiences alike can act, dance and sing together.
