Vitalija Glovackyte creates music bringing together second-hand analogue machines, conventional / home-made instruments, electronics and lo-fi visuals. Aside from her solo work, Vitalija is one-half of the experimental pop duo HYPERDAWN.
Her most recent large projects are WE ARE FOR A WHILE (hour long multimedia work for recycled instruments and tech) and TENDER VOLTS (for amplified slimming belt motors and live lighting). Offering new life to broken instruments and battered machines recovered from dumpsters, beaches and alleyways, WE ARE FOR A WHILE was originally created for Apartment House. The consequent UK tour with the group in 2017 earned great reviews in The WIRE and Fluid Radio, as well as broadcasts on NTS Radio, Resonance FM, BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction, Orange Radio, Reform Radio and LRT Radio.
The same year it had its New York debut with Almost Credible Music and landed the new music scene as an individually hand-stitched and very limited edition LP under Manchester’s label Ono.
TENDER VOLTS is a solo set created using 3 amplified sliming belt motors, live lighting and electronics. Originally devised as a solo experiment for Kammer Klang, it has been remoulded and re-commisioned by Phaedra ensemble for a performance of 3 in 2018.
