"In reviewing Synaesthesis’s creative work up till now there are no doubts that this is the Lithuanian new music ensemble that is the most striking and the most engaged in the performance of contemporary music. Over the five years of its existence the collective has already attracted attention not just in Lithuania but also abroad."

Maybe this is a good way to present contemporary music to listeners – through the character of old forms mixed with modern electro-acoustic."
