Arturas Bumšteinas
Palma Ars Acustica“, the newly created Award for Radio Art, goes this year to the Lithuanian composer and concept artist Arturas Bumšteinas.

The jury, made up of representatives from 11 European Public Radio Broadcasters, took its decision after the final round on Saturday, 27 April 2013 at WDR Broadcasting House. The prizewinning piece was Arturas Bumšteinas’ “Epiloghi – Sei modi di dire Zangtumbtumb”, in which futuristic sound visions confront effectful Baroque music. The production was first broadcast on DeutschlandRadio Kultur (Producer: Marcus Gammel). Apart from Jacopo Peri’s opera “Dafne”, Bumšteinas refers to texts by René Descartes and Luigi Russolo for his Six Miniatures. The jury praised in particular Bumšteinas’ colourful sound worlds made up of vocals, harpsichord and harsh noises.

Bumšteinas was born in 1982 in Vilnius where he studied at the Academy for Music and Theatre.

Arturas Bumšteinas has so far released two albums in Crónica, “Pastoral” and “Jakov & Gwizdały”, both free to download.
