  • Tigran Hamasyan's "Leninagone," from his 2017 album, An Ancient Observer. Video by Melanya Hamasyan. “Leninagone” is dedicated to all of the children who survived the devastating earthquake that happened twenty-nine years ago today in my home town Gyumri (Soviet name: Leninakan)," says Hamasyan. "I come from the generation of children whose lives were directly affected by this tragic event and the collapse of the Soviet Union three years later. This video footage is from my second grade elementary school end-of-the-year performance in 1995, which someone happened to record on VHS tape. This is school N. 10, which at the time was a temporary school that the children attended while the real building was being constructed. When I found this tape in my parents' video archives, I felt that this footage was the visual reflection of what I felt when I wrote “Leninagone.” The video portrays the struggle and the hope of all the generations that lived through this apocalyptic time."
