Svetlana Marinchenko:
"This project and this album are my first appearance in the music world. Like first words.

Every composition here is a separate story, a blazing image or a feeling that will stay with me forever. Only the ideas are mine, though. Everything became alive and breathing, turned into a real painting only because of the outstanding musicians that were beside me. They put their energy and their souls into this music, painted it with unique sound brushstrokes. It was a truly creative work, full of spontaneity, discoveries and evocation of crazy ideas. It is not something of MINE, but it is OURS.

I’m immensely happy that this music has turned out just like I hoped it would!

Special thanks to:
Kira Malevskaya, for our friendship, sincere interest, high professionalism, total dedication and fantastic help.

Dmitry Ryzhov, my husband, for patience and for emotional and financial support!

Andrei Kondakov, my teacher, for noticing me, for bringing me up as much as he could and for giving me constant inspiration. And, of course, for believing in me even when it seemed like there's nothing to believe in.

Arman Sidorkin, for his assistance in multiple fields, from effect recording to self-sacrificing babysitting!

Anton Davidyants – for sincere friendship, for opening a new world to me by bringing me and my music onto a completely new level, for support and for love towards my music.

Gena Rubtsov – for friendship and lots of assistance. Almost all the key writing happened at his home on his equipment.

Huge thanks to the musicians – almost all of them participated in this project just for the joy of it.

And finally, thanks to my parents, Sergei Marinchenko and Natalia Kravchuk; to Araik Jabberwocky, Anton Gorbunov, Kirill Guzhov, Vladimir Erin, Yana Kobzeva, Andrei Fahriev, Dmitry Rodionov, Marat Saifutdinov, Viktor Savich, Misha Shilov, Dmitry Shvarts, Alexei Utkin, Peter Voilokov, Anna Kaznadei and to Dmitry Olegovich for the epatage grief.

Also thanks to everyone interested in our music – and in music in general!"
