September, 17-18, 2005, international music festival «Children of the Night», Kiev, the club «Peremoga» . Official site of the festival: www.deti-nochi.kiev.ua
For the most of us the movies Martrix & Raven are ones away from our reality. But few of us know that these movies show gothic in its own reality. It’s also rather curious that such commercial bands as RAMMSTEIN, HIM, MARILYN MANSON, NIGHTWISH, DEPECHE MODE, EVANESCENCE belong to the same stage with OOMPH!, NINE INCH NAILS, DIARY OF DREAMS, THE SISTERS OF MERCY e. t. c.
Seprember,17-18 in Kyiv you will have possibility to find yourselves among the thousands of people in style of Matrix & Raven with music in the same stylistics, to find yourselves in another world among the fans of romantics of the 21-th century.
It is almost 2 decades that “Gothic stage” exists in Europe. This very stage includes performers of different styles of intellectual music: from energetic industrial metal, folk full of sadness to sympho-gothic metal, from neo-classics & philosophical gothic rock to urbanized cyber electro. The peculiarity of this different in form but having the same energetics music is a cold, melancholic atmosphere filled with dark romantics with intellectual lyrics, addressing to the inner world.
In Ukraine gothic stage & this subculture develop rather quickly. There are gothic bands, the most famous of which are КОМУ ВНИZ, ХОЛОДНЕ СОНЦЕ, GRAY\SCALE, DUST HEAVEN, ВІЙ, INFERNO.
In Internet there is powerful art & musical resource “Ukrainian Gothic Portal” www.gothic.com.ua which is also a promo-agency (organization of performances of Ukrainian gothic groups in Poland & Germany), a label ( the 1-st CD “Ukrainian Gothic”) & a center of distribution (realization of nearly 2000 occasional bands of the world dark stage). Every month in Kyiv, Odesa, Lvov, Ternopil & other cities gothic-parties are held. One of these parties became a mini-festival 5 years ago. There were almost 2000 people on it. Actually gothic-parties are unique as they unite non-standard & very original musical & theatrical performances, declaiming of poetry, watching movies & gothic video &, naturally, dances.
This time Ukrainian Gothic Portal invites to the unique event – the festival “Children of the Night: a black meeting-2”, which will be held in Kyiv after the 5 years pause. The precedent show being held at September, 14, 2000 has made all the organizers & participants understand that gothic culture has a great potential which has to be developed.
So, concentrating all our forces the Portal with all our Goths this autumn presents the 2-nd gothic festival. At September, 17-18, 2005 in the club “Peremoga” the last romantic night will celebrated, the meeting of the thousands romantics in black… Our night. Our gathering.
Gothic is the style admired by millions of people all over the world. That which early used to exist only in the elite clubs now has spread to all the social layers.
