Lithuanian Summer Day on Radiophrenia Glasgow

Monday, 9th November 2020 – 22:00

My piece Lithuanian Summer Day will be played on Radiophrenia Glasgow Glasgow in a show that starts tonight at 10 p.m. (so 11 p.m. CET) and with that I am sending a special greeting to my friends in Lithuania. Here is the program note: My grandfather had Lithuanian nurse during the years before his death. Lena became part of our family and my son and I spent two summers with her largely self-sustaining family in the countryside. Lena always says, “It’s a hard life but it’s a good life.” I got water from the well every morning and night. You can hear the repeating pattern of this in the piece, and with it rhythmic patterns of chicken sounds, transforming into children playing, and then transforming further into a rhythmic block of the children swimming in a pond in the yard.
