“The Waste Land” reviewed by Vital

And finally Luca Forcucci, of which no information was yet available. His cassette was composed and mixed in places INA-GRM, Electronic Music Studio TU (Berlin) and Atomic Lady (Earth). Maybe his composition ‘The Waste Land’ is inspired by T.S. Eliott’s poem of the same name, about the decay of life, and listening to the title […]

“Under my Skin” reviewed by Vital

Gintas K, from Lithuania, who has been around for many years, has used no field recordings on his new release. Instead he uses ‘digital synthesis’. I am not sure if an input of any kind is needed here, but maybe it is all in some sort of feedback process, where sounds bounce back and forth […]

“Juryo: Durée de la vie de l’ainsi-venu” reviewed by Vital

Music releases by Paris born and based composer Emmanuel Mieville are quite apart (Vital Weekly 803 and 1000 for instance) and has a strong emphasis on field recordings and this one is no different. Mieville had training in sound engineering in a film school and later on at INA-GRM, but also played in Javanese gamelan […]

Gintas K’s “Under My Skin” reviewed by The Wire

Gintas Kraptavičius is a prolific Lithuanian sound artist whose work exists somewhere on the left side of the glitch continuum. His music is composed of many short-term electronic events, most of which are somewhat melodic in-and-of-themselves. Much of the work here occurs inside a fairly tight sonic field, so it can feel a bit repetitious, […]

We’re very proud to present Gintas K’s (and our own) first tape release, Under My Skin. Gintas K has been active as a composer, performer and interdisciplinary artist since the 1990s, focusing on experimental digital music aesthetics — overloaded massive structures, static and physically overwhelming frequencies, melodic ambiences, voice and field recordings. Gintas K has […]
