about

The woman lying down sensually, dreamily, studiously too, on the cover of Slow is the perfect representation of Gintas K's music: research-based music that can also seduce, music that allows your mind to focus and then wander away, to be attentive to the techniques being used and then drift off in the wake of melodic fragments.

Gintas K (born Gintas Kraptavicius) comes from Lithuania's experimental music scene. He started in 1994 as a core member of the country's first industrial music group, Modus, before entering the world of sound art. Since then, he has created a large number of sound installations, live performances, and film music. He has released several albums, mostly on the Crónica label, but also on Retina Scan, Percepts, and skyndo. Slow is his first album for Baskaru.

On Slow, Gintas K focuses on microsounds, on deconstructing delicate sound sources, and on juxtaposing microgranulated textures and melodic elements. Eleven short pieces through which the artist pushes his techniques further while unveiling a seldom-heard melancholic side of his personality (a trait that puts this new album close to his 2009 Crónica release Lovely Banalities).

Gintas K produces a focused sound sensation that leaves out unnecessary and raises crucial.
