about

Ear-catching cassette, limited to 50 copies, features five sprightly digital improvisations in a comparable textural vein.
- Julian Cowley, The Wire #347 2012


It’s a bubbling charmer of hot mud. This Lithuanian stitcher has had his dark embroideries released by Cronica and Zeromoon to my knowledge, and now here he is with a full-length set of improvised pieces he made in 2011. In contrast to Ruez and his strict rules, Gintas K is just letting it all sprawl out over his workstation like so much electro-acoustic gruel being spoon-fed into the mouth of a recalcitrant infant. Very painterly, very intuitive, and achieving results that are like fragments of broken music being soldered and glued back together again. On this outing at least, Gintas K is driven to prove that he can push the machines around and win, injecting lengthy slabs of unpredictable noise with a vaguely aerated and gaseous vibe. The 18-minute piece on side A is especially noteworthy, like a melted cheese sandwich bubbling under the grill with its own built-in indigestion tablet for the comfort of the elderly diner. The B side contains somewhat more robotic and mechanical drones, every second of the inhuman surfaces studded with ornate décor and invention. Also some uncanny staccato effects and interpolations, redolent of Venusian plant life budding and spawning under the hot moons of another galaxy.
- Ed Pinsent, The Sound Projector
