Saint Petersburg's Kubikmaggi introduce themselves as follows: "The band has trouble recalling specific dates. Its members instead neglect any chronology; in fact, they're barely able to count, giving all the time they've spent working with different time signatures. Kubikmaggi embody a sort of musical terrorism or jazz-punk. They're endlessly experimenting and looking for new modes of self-expression. The numerous musical ideas that are concentrated in every square centimeter of sheet music often reach breaking point."
An unflagging wish - or need - to run around between bewildering rhythms or references is actively encouraged by the members of Kubikmaggi, who have no desire to sit still and be compartmentalized by the lazy pigeon-holing of others. "The band embodies a whole range of unrelated sensations: they display a remarkably serious stance towards their craft - as if in service of a Muse! - whilst simultaneously using high degrees of irony, a sharp tongue, many forms of 'figurative' cynicism, and - on top of all that - the spirit of youth, romanticism, and vigor, too...."
These snowballing, shifting aims are overseen by Ksenia Marokkanskaya (vocals and piano); Maks Rudenko (bass, sampler); and Ilya Varfolomeev (drums, percussion), and Ivan Rips (sound engineering).
