Emergence performed on Festivalis Druskomanija finale concert in Vilnius, Lithuania, June 2

My multimedia piece, Emergence, for Flute Quartet, Electronics and Video Projection will receive its Lithuanian premiere on June 2 at 8PM, at the Arts Printing House, Black Hall (Šiltadaržio st. 6), in Vilnius, the capitol city of Lithuiania. This concert, called Spheres, will be the closing concert of the Festivalis Druskomanija.

The performers for the concert are: Jens Hedman and Lars Brøndum (electronics, Sweden); Flute Quartet 112 (Latvia): Daina Treimane, Vita Rozēna, Anna Petraškeviča and Andis Klučenieks

The program will also consist of: Jens Hedman (Sweden), The Beast with Two Heads (1999–2010); Lars Brøndum (Sweden), Convolving Sphere (2011); Impetus (2009); and Albertas Navickas (Lithuania), Blanche t’a vu (2006). A nice feature of this closing concert is that all the composers and some of the performers were all involved in New Music Incubator, an international project I co-administrated in the summer of 2010.
