ARTURAS BUMSTEINAS - Three Sixteens
“Karlstad” was commissioned by Dutch new music ensemble DASH! as a remix track for their CD release „Bangalore“ in 2008. Bumšteinas took very short snippets (no longer than 1 second) of breathing noises of the ensemble's vocalists and used it as loops to build the instrumental harmonies upon them. Short remix version of this “remix” with guest violinist Lina Lapelyt? was featured in Wire Tapper 22 compilation. The title of this piece is derived from the sofa brand of the Swedish IKEA shop. The part of commission fee which Bumšteinas got for the creation of this piece was spent to purchase the abovementioned sofa.

“Studie II” (2009) is a composition based on the spectral analysis of K.Stockhausen's early electronic piece of the same name. Bumšteinas made the slowdown instrumental version of the original electronic piece which was performed in various instrumental combinations during the period of several years. All of these versions were recorded in concerts and rehearsals in House of Culture (Wigry), Contemporary Arts Center (Vilnius), King's Place (London), Norwich School of Music (Norwich). All of these version were mixed together to make the final version which is published on this CD.
