On Friday 29 October Vykintas Baltakas’ Cladi III (2021) for ensemble and electronics will receive its premiere by Bremen Loudspeaker Orchestra, LENsemble Vilnius, Vykintas Baltakas conducting, in the GAIDA Festival, at Contemporary Art Center, Vilnius.
A gigantic landscape of loudspeakers and musicians is spread over the entire concert hall in this unusual concert. The audience is situated in the middle of it and perceives 34 loudspeaker sculptures that, like musicians, have their own music stands and note parts. Sit down on a musician’s seat and listen to the LENsemble – 17 musicians scattered around the hall together with three singers, and often wandering. At the end of the concert, the audience can actively participate.
Vykintas Baltakas’ Cladi III will be fully available for perusal and purchase shortly after its premiere.
