events


Since 2006 I've been actively involved in organizing and curating experimental music and sound art events. During those years I did different festivals, small shows and series of events. Met hundreds of artists... I still keep on it, though bit less than earlier. Below is the list of current and past activities. Must say that I'm always open to ideas and collaborations, so feel free to contact. 


CURRENT



FESTIVAL "YAGA GATHERING", 7-8 of August, 2020, open air in the woods of Lithuania
In 2019 I've curated program for "Outmost" stage with live experimental / weird music acts and DJs. in 2020 I continue with this. http://yaga.lt/



PAST

















Festival "GARSO TEATRAS" (Panevėžys), J. Miltinis drama theatre
2019 edition was held Oct. 10-12th in Panevėžys and November 8-9th in Klaipėda.
2018 edition was held Nov. 9-10th in Panevėžys

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), POST gallery
2019 edition was held April 24 - May 11thThis was called "event series", but I consider this as a festival spread in a series of events in four weeks. This was based on experimental / improvised music, sound performances. Events were held in POST gallery in Kaunas. Program included: sound art exhibition, sound art seminar and performances. The festival was supported by Lithuanian Council or Culture.





AGHARTA (active 2009 - 2018) was a promoter name 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 (see the list at the very end of this page). 


SPEIGAS festival - (eng. "Frost") the main event by Agharta which was started in 2010 and finished in 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.


SUPYNES 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.
