« Arturas Bumšteinas is a well regarded musician and visual artist from Vilnius, Lithuania. He is involved in many projects in the fields of contemporary and experimental music. His compositions have been published by many labels as physical and online releases. Bumšteinas also has a prolific career as visual artist, working on techniques ranging from video to drawings, sound installations or photography.
Eterniday News (Vol. 1) is a compilation of four compositions centered on many aspects of soundscape composition, sampling and recombination. Composer has prepared quite a long oeuvre that portraits different moments during his touring around Europe. In general the whole release is a tour around different aspects of Bumšteinas interest in contemporary composition. A tour that generates an imaginary landscape of acoustic moments that has an inherent feel of sound logbook or the kind of recording you get back home after traveling.
„Refusenik” was composed from various field-recordings captured in churches around Europe in years 2009-2010. Additional sample material of wind and stones was recorded on Sylt island, Germany in March of 2010. Instrumentals by Arturas Bumšteinas (organ), Travis Garrison (crotales), Sigutė Ilgauskaitė (voice sample). — Audiotalaia »
