The violent temper of the famous mountain river inspired the artist to a unique experiment - creation of a musical instrument for the Terek.

In his artistic practice, Sergei Filatov explores and records the underwater sound of aquatic areas: the author's equipment helped to collect the “sound portraits” of rivers and canals of St. Petersburg and Moscow; the Baltic waters off the coast of Denmark, Sweden, Finland; the rivers and lakes along the Black Sea coast, etc.

The artist's idea of creating a musical instrument for the river will be realized for the first time at the Alanica Festival. The waters of the Terek, passing along the ancient channel, acquire a powerful high-speed charge: the variability of its water flows will be reflected in the character of sound improvisation.
