In 18th June BOLD Design Store was pleased to welcome Artemy Troitsky, a legendary music critic, journalist, television and radio host, at a private presentation of Andrey Airapetov documentary “The CRITIC”.
If there is an incarnation in the whole history of Russian rock in one person, then it is certainly Troitsky.
He was born in one year with a Rock`n`Roll, so he grew up and developed along with the music itself, changing his attachments from the melodic beat music toward the psychedelic underground rock, from hippies to punks and new waver. Troitsky was a person who followed music for many decades. He discovered talents who later became famous and respected in certain areas of music and popularized new music genres.
For many years Troitsky has been a recognized musical authority not only in Russia but also abroad. But this film tells not only about life of Troitsky. It is also about society of Russia in 80s, its diversity and attitude against new movement of underground rock.
Here is a small photo recap how we celebrated music, art and life.
