ARMA AGHARTA (Lithuania)
ritual / dada / toys / objects / voice / action / costumes / spiritual / maximalist
Arma Agharta is the sound performance artist and promoter from Lithuania devoted to improvised and experimental music. He got involved in the worldwide underground 20 years ago by publishing zines, running label, playing in bands and organizing shows. Currently Arma performs both solo and in collaborations, also curates special events in Lithuania.
Since 2007 he has done nearly 500 performances all over the world, from Brazil to Phillipines, from Greenland to Siberia.
His intense and high energy shows span a broad territory between the eruptions of chaotic noise and hypnotic psychedelic ritual to dadaist humour, odd bodily movements, spontaneous improvised games and the voice, detached from meaning and turning into unintelligible glossolalia.
Since 2006, Florian Walter (Germany) works as a saxophone and clarinet player as well as composer of contemporary music.
He studied music, jazz-saxophone, composition and historical sciences in Essen.
Playing in different ensembles in the fields of experimental pop music, modern jazz, improvisation, contemporary and theatre music, he seeks new ways to develop and construct sound, and to perform it in a situative context, without falling back onto stereotypes of traditional musical conceptions. Florian is also developing methods to present contemporary music and arts, for example since 2010 with a concert series with improvised music in convenience stores.
