In Ekaterinburg, where he was born in 1972, at the border to the Asian part of Russia, the composer Vadim Karassikov lives and works in great seclusion.
Karassikov notates his scores precisely. The pages of music appear in a fragile pencil calligraphy which could also be shown in exhibitions of contemporary graphics.
The vagueness of the extremely precise, yet sensitive notation corresponds with the music, for its dynamic level hovers around the border of the audible.
His works have been regularly included in the programs of the most important international music festivals and concert series as well as in special concert programs in Moscow, Paris, New York, Amsterdam, Vienna, Berlin, Stockholm, Los Angeles, Antwerp, Toronto, Luxemburg, Dresden, Buenos Aires, Salzburg, Frankfurt, Graz, Hamburg, Linz, Stuttgart, Darmstadt and elsewhere.
Karassikov’s works are regularly broadcast by Radio France, Holland Radio, Austrian Radio, West German Radio, Hessian Radio, Middle German Radio, Radio Bremen and other broadcasting companies. They have been released on CD by BIS Grammofon, Sweden (BIS-CD 765).
