Soviet Electroacoustic under the tecnic – María Gelpí

Introduction

When the Russian avant-garde were cut off in favor of realism, both formalism and artistic experimentation had to move closer to the refuge of other disciplines within the framework of the emerging USSR policy if they wanted to survive. In the first place, in the strictly political sphere, although initially the rupturist intention within the framework of the bourgeois society was a point in common in both social agents, the artistic and the political, once the bases of a society and some new ones were established values, any hint of renewal intention would be postponed under the yoke of purges. The other element pointed out here is the technophile that, far from being a carbon copy of European futurism, rests on ideological components such as cosmism, assumed by the Bolsheviks otzovites of the left that sustains this experimental emergence of the arts, also in the field of sound .
