Blue Monuments is an anthem for chess champion and failed Russian presidential candidate Garry Kasparov’s political campaign: it is a narrative, incorporating both fact and fiction, with musical elements, including media documents and a notational transcription of Kasparov’s fateful 6 games against Deep Blue. Through it we imagine a history that might have been written otherwise, in a kind of audio retouching.
