Lithuanian Composers' Union

Jauna Muzika festival presents artists working with sound and music as a form of experimental art. It is one of the oldest and most changed music festivals in Lithuania, founded in 1992. As the concept of music changed, maintaining its relevance so did the festival itself, its directions, and sometimes its names.

The central theme of 2022 year’s event is Action(s) and their historical, philosophical and scientific interpretations. With the brutal war and genocide raging in the heart of Europe, the moment encourages thinking of actions and counteractions as well as the paths and trajectories being set. Within the festival, the concept is conveyed through sound experience, since sound production is directly related to action, reaction and proactivity. Each piece of music in the programme is a set of actions that correspond to today’s realities. They explore it, react to it or turn into pauses between sound-steps.
