The Fifth Dimension of the Odd Flat project 15.11.2010 22:13

The Virtual Encyclopedia of Russian Recordings for the first time steps out from the Internet into real world. This will take place in Moscow Mikhail Bulgakov Museum, where The Fifth Dimension of the Odd Flat project comes to life.

More than hundred records from the virtual collection helped to enliven the writer's memorial museum permanent exposition by filling it with 1900-1930s music that surrounded Bulgakov and his famous characters. Audio samples will accompany visitors in their journey from Bulgakov's Kiev home musical memories to Moscow's infernal communal flats of the 1920s reconstructing the musical atmosphere of The Master and Margarita as well as sounds of the radio set beside Bulgakov's bed in the last year of his life.

The project is created by Alexey Petukhov, the Editor of the Soviet Chapter of the Encyclopedia.

The presentation of the new audio exposition will take place on November, 20, 2010, at 5pm. A small show of vintage sound playing devices from Bulgakov's era will accompany the event.

Address: Moscow, 10 Bolshaya Sadovaya, apartment 50 (The Odd Flat)
