Gintas K - Slow (CD Baskaru)
This Lithuanian artist seems to churn out at least a few albums per year and that’s, to be honest, generally a bad sign in my estimation. Especially when they straddle the spheres afforded by a home digital set up and are prone to melding patchwork abstract electronics together with somewhat predictable electroacoustic and glitch works. The pieces here are forged of grizzled digital flotsam with a vaguely melodic disposition not exactly unlike the foraging of countless similar artists on this terrain. It all delivers too workmanlike and perfunctory for my more demanding requirements, doubtlessly falling into that deep chasm where grown men look as bored as the audience as they reside behind a laptop for the live, uh, ‘experience’ RJ.
