LongArms Records

Long Arms Agency was founded in spring 1996 by Sergey Kuryokhin, Nick Dmitriev and Dmitry Rezvan. Our idea is to distribute and to promote in various ways different kinds of new and old marginal, forgotten, unknown or unidentified music. This includes free improvisation, new composed music, noise scene, electroacoustic, ars acustica, creative cross-cultural projects, authentic folklore, traditional non-european music, etc. All these projects are connected in varying degrees with Russia, Russian music or Russian musicians. From the very beginning our agency works in close cooperation with IMA-press publishing house.

Long Arms Agency aims to improve the activities of concert and festival life, and CD production. The agency also organized several festivals and concert series: LongArms Logo

festivals "Diptych", "Sprouts & Roots", "Moscow-Petersburg: Noise Scene", "Sergey Passion", "Le cru et le cuit", part of "Alternativa" in Moscow, "Sprouts & Roots" in Vologda and "New Jazz Fest" in Arkhangelsk; "Silent Movie Talking Music" Series with "Metropolis" by Fritz Lang, "Strike" by Sergey Eisenshtein, etc, in Moscow; performances of Otomo Yoshihide and Keshavan Maslak, Kazutoki Umezu, Min Tanaka, Jason Hwang, Ned Rothenberg, Phil Minton, Maggie Nicols, Werner Lüdi, Dror Feiler, Fritz Hauser, Dieter Glawischnig, Heinz-Erich Gödecke, Vladimir Miller, Vladimir Tarasov, Vyacheslav Ganelin, Vladimir Chekasin, Vyacheslav Guyvoronsky, Vladimir Volkov, etc.
