My name is Iouri Lnogradski. I am from Russia (so it’s Юрий Льноградский, just in case).
This site is yet one more attempt to embrace my activities in music-related area to whoever is concerned from abroad — in terms of a person, not particular projests. I book musicians, I make gigs (and sometimes quite huge creations and festivals), I write reviews, interviews, bios, reports and analytics (on music), I translate some good works (English to Russian), I provide promotional services to independent artists. Jack-of-all-trades, in short, as the only way to survive in this cruel world.
I was born in 1976, studied at state technical university in my hometown (with a degree in, surprisingly, automatic controls and informational technologies). For 20+ years, I am involved in a lot of jazz-and-around activities in Russia, including some major agencies and mass media in a certain period. Now it seems to be some sort of independent professional life. I reside in the northern part of Moscow neighbourhood.
I’ll build some collection of my text works here, just to keep some tracks of myself. The work is in progress, and I doubt it’ll be done soon, as my past is deep. But some people say it’s needed.
Welcome with whatever ideas you might have.
