Collection #2 (2020) is an acousmatic composition for which sounds were sourced from the composer’s collection of synthesizers. All the synthesizers, heard in this piece, were made in the post-Soviet Eastern Bloc.
Jonas Jurkūnas (b. 1978) is a composer keen on discovering and exploiting very different layers of musical creativity, from academic to pop and incidental music. Genre-wise, his creative portfolio includes chamber and orchestral pieces as well as electronic music, multimedia and interdisciplinary projects. Stylistically, his music finds itself in the neighbourhood with minimalism and new tonality. Very often he uses simple sound patterns, pulsating with rhythms, as his creative start-up while searching for the new or already forgotten timbres and expressions. These are the minimalist strategies, which the composer weaves into his music together with experimental or club-style electronics, ambient stylistics, as well as elements of jazz, pop, or even romantic music.
