Gediminas Gelgotas

The music of Gediminas Gelgotas is fervently cruising the territories belonging to the lively microcosms of the European contemporary art scene and is beginning to permeate the North American expanses. His complex artistic language is based on a refined audio-visual aesthetic that is flavored with sometimes sharp, and sometimes gentle hints of (post)minimalism, and contains a universally relevant subject matter, integrated into the titles of his works (Everyday More, Never Ignore the Cosmic Ocean, What’s Unrobotizable). This syncretic mold of motion, human voice and imagery tends to unfurl in spaces that can be a little unusual in the context of contemporary music (according to the established notions), and is represented by Gelgotas’ own New Ideas Chamber Orchestra that professionally delivers and nurtures this form of art. In his 2009 personal letter to Gelgotas, Terry Riley wrote: “I like that beauty seems to be his guiding principle. It is what people are hungry for – music that has an element of peace. Gelgotas has a very unique and compelling compositional voice.”
