Podcast The Colors and Concepts of Justina RepečkaitėPosted on January 23, 2023
“With the innovative courage of Modernism combined with a deeply focused ruthlessness of fine detail, Repečkaitė guides us through a musical journey ranging from her cultural roots of folk music, her musical beginnings, then sharing the most complex experiments and meticulous execution in electronic and computer-based music. Electro-acoustic projects with groundbreaking techniques and meaningful collaborations with instrumentalists are a highlight as she walks us through her experiences at IRCAM (Institut de recherche et coordination acoustique/musique) in Paris.” True Rosachi, a New York-based composer, theorist and technologist, a host of Composers on Air. Listen on Spotify or from the Composers on Air PodBean website:
