On Thursday, June 2, one of the most gifted contemporary Latvian composers Andris Dzenītis will perform his electronic music at “Skaņu mežs” bar/record store on Miera iela 12. Concert starts at 9PM.
On Friday the same place a different musical mood will unravel as DJ Krii, one of the better known Latvian hiphop producers will take “stage” at 11PM.
On Saturday, June 4, record exchange fair will take place from 6PM to 8PM and at 10PM the most re-known Lithuanian sound artist Gintas K will perform. He was the core member of the first Lithuanian industrial music group, “Modus”. Performances, actions, and even short films shaped the activities of “Modus” (translated as “the way of life”). Later Gintas Kraptavičius was active as a performer and interdisciplinary artist, known for his actions, happenings and written instructions in a post-fluxus manner.
In 1999 Gintas turned his scenery name into Gintas K and started exploring experimental digital music aesthetics: from overloaded massive structures, static and physically overwhelming frequencies to melodic ambiences, voice and field recordings. He has released several albums, contributed to online releases and projects and participated in various international festivals of new media and sound art.
