In autumn 2018 together with a partner Tadas Stalyga we have started new festival for sound art and sound performances called "Garso Teatras" (end. "Sound Theatre"). The first edition was held in Panevėžys city, J. Miltinis theatre. We had two nights of installations and performances by local and international artists. The festival was supported by Lithuanian Council of Culture and was completely free. Here's first the review of the firs edition in lithuanian language


Festival "CORPI SONORI" (Kaunas)
2020 edition dates TBA
2019 edition was held April 24 - May 11th

This was called "event series", but I consider this as a festival spread in a series of events in four weeks. Again this was based on experimental / improvised music, sound performances. Events were held in POST gallery in Kaunas. Program included: sound art exhibition, seminar and performances.

More about the past activities:






Agharta (active 2009 - 2018) was a promoter from Lithuania devoted to adventurous music and noise. We organized irregular concerts in different towns of Lithuania. We had a few hundreds of artists and bands from all over the world. 

SPEIGAS festival - (eng. "Frost") the main event, which was started in 2010 and finished on 2015. It took part each February in Vilnius and Kaunas. The festival is quite dynamic type - mixing genres, changing spaces, but it's mostly  about rough experimental and noise music. Format: concerts, lectures and workshops.

SOTU festival Lithuania -  ("sounds of the underground") joint festival with Amsterdams' SOTU. This one and only edition of this festival took part in September 2014. It included alternative and experimental music concerts, lectures and workshops. Events held in Vilnius, Kaunas, Ukmergė and Jonava.
  
Outermost - were the series of concerts held in Kirtimai culture house in Vilnius. The idea was to present cross genre music in the furthest venue of the city. Four editions took place during the year 2014.
Meno trikampis - ("eng. "art triangle") was the art project in central Lithuania. Started in 2012, and finished in 2014. Ukmergė, Jonava, Kėdainiai - these three towns are in geographical triangle, and the idea was about the cultural collaboration between these towns in forms of exhibitions, concerts and workshops. Information about the events can be found here and here.

Sūpynės festival - the annual summer open-air festival held in beautiful Lithuanian woods. Agharta had a showcase there, presenting experimental music in a broad way. Here's the showcase program: 20142013.
