On Sunday 12 September Vykintas Baltakas’ Music of Falling Sounds for violin and electronics will be performed at the Festival Muzika Erdvėje (“Music in Space”) in Vilnius with Rusnė Mataitytė, violin.
In 2012 Luc Tuymans produced the magnificent mural Angel in a corridor of the highest foyer of the Concertgebouw Brugge. Immediately a new space came into existence: the Angel Room. The narrow and tall corridor was designed by Paul Robbrecht who kindly referred to it as: “the cathedral of the Concertgebouw”. The way the light enters the space and the acoustics add to the special atmosphere surrounding Tuymans’ work. Inspired by Morton Feldman’s Rothko Chapel the Concertgebouw commissioned a series of compositions specially written for the Angel Room.
Not only the mural, but the whole architectural context of the space inspired this piece [Music of Falling Sounds]. The tall ceiling and the a-typical floor plan create a unique acoustic. The space feels sterile and transparent and so does the composition: frugal and icy sounds in a high register.Vykintas Baltakas
