Lauri Supponen: Continuo (2021) is a literal re-composition of Girolamo Frescobaldi’s Recercar con obligo movement from the Fiori Musicali (1635) collection. In it, a trio of musicians feed a keyboard player with live-recorded samples of their playing. Fragments of the obbligato are given to the toy piano.

Misunderstandings (2015), Andrius Šiurys: Again, most of the time, relative ‘understanding’ is an illusion. You imagine that some kindred spirit has appeared who understands what you want to say. Even though she doesn’t really understand a damn thing, but maybe she senses, maybe she smells, maybe something has vibrated a little bit and she’s picked up on it, caught a whiff of something… It’s like in communication: when two people are talking, there is very little actual communication in the text.

defunensemble concert shows versatile voices in the colourful genre of Baltic electro acoustic music. History and modernity are present in these works, where diverse musical materials merge to form a kaleidoscopic concert programme.
