Gintas K has been working as a sound artist exploring minimal digital sounds, sine waves, noise, glitches, microwaves and acoustic vibration, making music for films, sound installations. Gintas K sound works have been presented in various festivals and exhibitions and released by record labels worldwide.
Kundrotas Robertas, poet, prose writer, playwright. Since 1990 he is editor-in-chief of the legendary new music magazine "Tango", since 1999 he is editor-in-chief of publishing house "Pasvires pasaulis".
The title translates as 'Seven Bridges In The Centre Of The World' and brings together Lithuania's most active force of laptop glitch, Gintas K, together with Robertos Kundrotas, who can be held responsible for bringing new music (as in Vital's world) to the same country, since a long time, when he started to publish 'Tango' (in 1990). In October 2007 the two of them performed at an audiovisual poetry festival 'Tarp: Vasaros 5' in Vilnius. It's a bit hard to say what the texts are about. They are not easy to understand, even if I would speak Lithuanian. The voice is pushed to the back and Gintas waves over it a network of sounds - starting rhythmically but slowly more and more heavy sounds drop in, like washes from the sea until the voice has entirely disappeared. Towards the end it returns and things seem to come to a natural conclusion. Quite a heavy piece, which is unmistakably a live recording which could have perhaps trimmed down a bit more, but nevertheless is a well rounded piece. (FdW) Vital Weekly 625
