gintas k - taip taip (zermoon)
i'm following gitas k's work with the years because he is in the acid fake recordings roster from its very own beginning, before he had some noticeable particular releases. and yes, his is one of fines lithuanian electronic artists. after that he putted much material on other labels around; and this
is his 3" release on zeromoon. sound can be described as recognizable zeromoon sound, similar to what violet and zeromoon works. gintas k work is also recognizable and he is always moving in his own, very good established
sound paths; of course varying in the sound from release to release as much as he could. high or low pitched sinewaves and static noise pads that vibrates around with glitchy or micronoise cracklings in them. last track which is longest (twelve minutes) shows his drone perspective. starting very calm with waving sound slowly grows into loud noisy drone flow, ending with loud harsh noise taking enormous dimensions. on moments ear piercing and static noisy, on moments very calm and melodic or even using amorphous
blurry bass or beat, gintas knows how to combine all that sounds into fine
beautiful and listenable fusion.

GINTAS K - TALP TALP (3"CDR by Zeromoon)
vital weekly 423
Gintas K is known for his organisation of Garso Zona festival (see last week's issue) but he is slowly getting around with his music. Here on a 3"CDR on the US Zeromoon label. It's a strange release. Five tracks in total, of which the first three don't last very long and the last one is over twelve minutes. In these first tracks it's hard to get an idea about his music. It's rhythmical, with some high end peeps, some deep bass but they are over before you know it. 'Talp Talp' is a bit longer but at the same time also a bit more minimal. Here the Pan Sonic influence is the strongest. Digital, bit-rot drones are the central theme of 'Kai Nuvaziuosin', which unfortunally do not sound original. Like I said, this is probably not the best introduction to the work of Gintas K.(FDW)

GINTAS K -Taip Taip
GINTAS K, the core member of the first Lithuanian industrial group MODUS, is a unique and intricate entity of human development. Don't let the simplicity of his sound compositions fool you. You won't find any melodic influence or progressive percussion here, let alone anything that 99.9% of the population would consider remotely musical. But then again, that's not what he's about. With pieces such as "Taip Taip" and "Kai Nuvaziuosin", GINTAS K draws from the John Cage and Iannis Xenakis school of thought, manipulating everyday sounds and stretching the definition of what sound is, and how people relate to sound. His minimalistic surreal aural landscapes feast on timbre development and manipulation of standard dynamic ranges. Although, not something this critic can listen to on a daily basis, it's a very interesting glimpse into the world of sound art. [D. Panfili]

Gintas K "Taip Taip" [zero019-r]
Zeromoon, 2004 Литовский музыкант Гинтас К охвачен идеей возможности воздействовать тем или иным образом на психику слушателя, его произведения - попытка работы с сознанием и рефлексами. Он использует генераторы синусоидальных волн, сложные ритмические структуры, скрежет и треск. Из этого почему-то получается нечто, что вполне можно назвать музыкой - такой себе майкро-нойз.
Двадцать минут протяжного воя и ювелирных скрипений, временами вполне себе ничего, но не более. И только на последних минутах случается нечто любопытное: громкость резко набирает обороты, звук распухает и становится невыносимо колюче громким. Как будто кроткий и застенчивый электронно-ограниченно-писклявый музон вдруг рвет на себе манишку и ревет во всю глотку "Довольно!". И не вдруг - снегом на голову, а вначале присматриваясь к окружающим звукам - можно ли здесь такую выходку устроить, поймут ли? Ехидно пролезая в сознание, входя в доверие, даже предлагая послушать почти тишину. Чтобы в свою очередь устроить как можно громче. Формат 3" CD-R
