The Sound Projector/ September 21, 2014
No sooner had I reviewed Lithuanian madman Gintas K’s most recent album, Nota Demo, than along pops a predecessor from the same, fertile year of 2013. While Greit (‘Quickly’) is audibly a similar proposition to its digitally volatile, junior sibling, it’s relatively earthy and unrefined nature (only relatively, mind you) owes to the employment of a wider, more ‘try-before-you-buy’ array of psychoacoustic strategies to bore holes in unsuspecting skulls than in that unyielding, magmatic stew. There’s no mistaking Gintas’ handiwork anywhere; certainly not in the digital chatter that resolves into a dense vibration in ‘Greit 2’, though the radiant hum of ‘Greit 4’ – hiss-soaked as it is – betrays more human warmth than he’s hitherto shown off. Still, Nota Demo’s signature sound is signposted by the neon sand-wash that opens Greit: a grainier approximation albeit of those ‘liquid glass eruptions’. As if following Gintas’ eye-line, the scene swiftly microscopes into a crystal clear image of a boulder-battered barricade: an invasive tenacity that matches Gintas’ scientific rigour as he glides around a lab of contact-miked beakers with strangely coloured liquids he cooks to boiling point. The blend of cold curiosity and childlike wonder he affects while abusing a droning synthesizer and other objects, resulting in many pleasant surprises – including three minutes of silence in the closer – reminds us that he was playfully sifting through many a sound source before arriving at the present point of focus.

"Fascinating, sterile sound explorations that manage to imbue cold machinery with otherworldly biology and personality."
