This recording was made during Peter Kowald's third visit to Russia. He was supposed to hold a solo concert in the framework of the project of Nikolay Dmitriev "Silent cinema — speaking music" in the Central House of the Artist. Peter brought a wonderful film by Charles lane "Street stories" about the life of two, as is now politically correct to say, African-American homeless. And, though, the film was shot in the 1990s, according to the Director's idea the sound in it appeared only at the very end. Kowald skillfully voiced this tape, using all his unique, invented by himself methods of possession of the double bass, clearly getting into the idea, the meaning of the picture. Agree that using only one tool to do it is very difficult!
I don't remember how the idea came to record this performance by Kowald, but as it turned out, it was a very good idea! Kolya Dmitriev was not going to publish this record at that time, and how was it to be published? The accompaniment of Charles lane's film by Peter was so successful that it was simply impossible to imagine his music separately without the film! The decision came after the departure of Peter Kowald from this world. Of course, I wanted to do it on DVD along with the movie "Street stories". Nick began to search for the original movie to solve the legal issues with publishing, like the film itself, and the musical accompaniment to it. Of course, he planned to do it on his label "Long arms". Unfortunately, due to his constant employment in numerous concert, publishing and festival projects, he did not have time to implement this idea...
After listening to the preserved record, it became clear that it must be published! It's okay that it will be released without a film by Charles lane - because publish the same sound tracks to famous movies! Today, any previously unreleased recording of Peter Kowald, immediately becomes an event and the subject of search and collecting from specialists and fans of the unique musician, especially such a unique one as this!
