Jauna Muzika Festival

Electronic and Electroacoustic SOUND GALLERY 2013


2–7 April 2013, Vilnius






In the current edition of the Jauna Muzika Festival, besides the overviews of a contemporary sound art, the organizers decided to face text and diverse possibilities of its articulation by musical means in the realm of interdisciplinary art. The text acts as a very important element in everyday life; it does not matter whether it is a verbal narrative or an information encoded in a digital form. Therefore it is meaningful to look through various media, such as voice, script (text: literature, drama, poetry) and virtual reality. In this perspective we can observe how different cultural links, yet of the same kind, connect. Remembering the first attempts in the beginning of the 20th century to tell by text more than its meaning (Ursonate by Kurt Schwitters, the so called sound poetry) and invoking new technologies which invoke to feel differently the very text material, the art of sound unfolds for new experiences of text reading and perception. It is where this “Jauna muzika” programme comes from.

One will hear both well-known ambient compositions and newly created works adapted for the circumstances of the project. Participants of the project are young composers Tadas Dailyda, Mykolas Natalevičius and Lukrecija Petkutė, together with an organist Karolina Juodelytė, a laureate of The International M. K.

AVaspo: post 3 (2013)*


AVaspo: Gabrielė LABANAUSKAITĖ – texts, voice; Vladas DIENINIS – electronic percussion; Gediminas ŽYGUS – electronics; SUCKMAFINGER – VJ


“We are part of pop culture. Its mirror. Its beauty and the beast. The mascara is dripping from the eyelashes,” says AVaspo, calling themselves musical manipulators. Welcome to the territory where one plays with concepts and flirts with fetishistic metaphors. Everything is real, because it is impossible to define what hasn’t got a simulacrum in the 21st c yet.


The metamorphoses of the programme “post 3” of musical and textual audiovisual poetry group AVaspo come from digital domains and transfer by communicative channels to the experiences beyond screens. Works of “AVaspo” are inspired by the conflict between everyday self-urbanisation and instinctive nostalgia for the origin of nature. The resolution from this existential tragedy is the consciousness that the technology and the nature are not the opposite and the errors happening in the virtual world may be equal to the natural disasters of the world still called “real”. The virtual world becomes a simulacrum of the usual life, the characteristic of which, speaking Jean Baudrillard’s words, is a Promethean aim of a continuous world-wide expansion.


Tickets: Lt30; Lt15 (for students, schoolchildren and senior citizens)

Stereo Hypnosis (Iceland): Óskar THORARENSEN; Pan THORARENSEN


“Morphic Ritual” is a project of ambient music and video compositions, immersing in the natural ambient atmosphere of the music. “Morphic Ritual” was recorded in west part of Iceland (Hellissandur) and mixed at Svörtuloft from the 1st to 13th of January, 2013.


The electronic duo “Stereo Hypnosis”, a father and son collaboration of Óskar and Pan Thorarensen, was founded in Flatey, Iceland, in 2006. “Stereo Hypnosis” is very ambient-driven electronica, full of lonely organic environmental sounds, birds in the background, waves crashing the shore, water dripping, with soft beats and gentle melodies that cast a soothing feeling of overcast skies and rainy days.
