Gintas K’s “Lėti” reviewed by Felthat

The work of Gintas Kraptavicius who works usually under moniker Gintas K since 1994 opens up a entirely different universe tingling with variety of references and influences. Since he has been working in a diverse fields of modern composition, sound art and sound installation, film music, granular synthesis, electronic music that is positively problematic to be defined and classified under one file, quite naturally you might experience a richness of  all this.16 years after his first album with Crónica based in Oporto, Portugal he is coming back with an electronic array of tracks. A synthedelic tableau – a script of gentle melodies and subtle granular squelches and minimalistic but not necessarily involving repetition and all the aspects of minimal music characteristics, he slowly navigates towards a narrative that is both pleasant and in some form keeps the dramatism of every day discoveries as an open form to the listener. That is probably a note to a listener to participate in the whole listening process more openly. A set of 11 tracks that are both a pleasure to listen as well as something to ponder on when it comes to the work of a composer that blends so many fantastic elements into an opaque calleidoscope.
