While there were Maslenitsa (Mardi Gras) festivities on the streets of Sergiyev Posad, the nearby Abramtsevo college made it on their own. The would-be ceramicists and painters had fun playing outdoor games and enjoying live music beside the college main entrance. It all ended with a joky scarecrow burning as a symbolic farewell to the winter. This is what it sounded like – a soundcape recorded on that day.
