Justė Janulytė

Justė Janulytė’s music is recognisable by long, slow expositions, gradual enrichment of texture; thanks to her relished canon technique large sound layers create impression of twinkling, rippling, flashes of light and colour. The music as if emerges from unseen distances and gets closer to the listener without notice, then finally pierces into the listener, passes through all the cells, moves the atoms, and then slowly recedes until disappearing completely in the horizon. Sometimes it seems that Justė’s works do not have a beginning or an end and that over there, behind the horizon, the music keeps on moving, pierces someone else. Justė’s music raises associations not with sound images but rather with the substance which is moving in space and has its temperature, light and density. Such substance-like quality of music is effective to the listener: even when hearing the piece for the first time you can identify in which section of the piece you are, where the mass of sound is moving to. This quasi-physical contact is an essential feature of the reception of Justė’s music.
