Gintas K’s “Lėti” reviewed by Aural Aggravation

Having seen various videos of Gintas K’s improvisations, involving a keyboard and a dusty old Lenovo ThinkPad running some custom software, it’s apparent that his approach to composition is nothing if not unusual, and it’s matched by the results.  His Crónica debut, Lengvai / 60 x one minute audio colours of 2kHz sound was sixteen years ago, […]

Gintas K’s “Lėti” reviewed by Classical Music Daily

This is my second review of the works of Gintas K, a fascinating and innovative sound artist, born in Lithuania in 1969 and a person who has generated considerable interest.

“Under my Skin” reviewed by Gonzo Circus

Een kleine verrassing bij Crónica is de nieuwe uitgave van de Litouwse componist Gintas K. Hij is geen onbekende – ook niet op dit Portugese label – maar meneer K komt hier met zijn eerste uitgave op cassette. De reden om voor die geluidsdrager te kiezen blijft onduidelijk. Belangrijker: ook inhoudelijk is ‘Under My Skin’ […]
