Arma & Refusenik
Collaboration between Arturas Bumšteinas and the charismatic Lithuanian event organiser and performance artist / musician Arma. In this duo musicians employ analogue and digital synthesizers in order to create improvised flow of synthetic subconsciousness. Melody is an important element in this duo collaboration.
We will see them perform together on the 12th of september at Huset.
Refusenik will do a solo show on the 13th, also at Huset.
He will present his “Musikaliszer Pinkos” for electronics
This music was inspired by “Musikaliszer Pinkos” – a collection of more than two hundred Hebrew religious hymns and Chassidic songs compiled and published by Abraham Berenstein in the year 1927 in Wilna (nowadays Vilnius). The selection of songs from “Musikaliszer Pinkos” was used by Arturas Bumšteinas as a source of fragmentary pitch material and re-interpreted in a new context of electronic sound and cut-up composition. All music was recorded with the use of Soviet-era Russian synthesizer Polyvox. The premiere performance took place in St. Catherine’s concert hall in Vilnius, during a festival Virtual Memorial, 2013/09/26.
