Now at Copland House

Žibuoklė Martinaitytė will be in residence through most of April. She was a previous resident in 2009 and a co-winner of Copland House’s 2017 Sylvia Goldstein Award. A New York-based Lithuanian composer whose works explore the tensions and longings of identity and place, she creates sonic environments where musical gestures emerge and disappear within transparencies and densities of sound layers – “music,” she explains, “that slides on the very blades of emotions.” Her A Thousand Doors to the World was commissioned by the Lithuanian Radio to celebrate Vilnius as Europe’s 2009 Culture Capital, and premiered by Euroradio to an audience of 4-million. Her U.S. commissions include the MATA, Look+Listen, and Other Minds Festivals, as well as the Barlow Endowment. She has had residency fellowships at the MacDowell Colony, Millay Colony, Harvestworks, Djerassi, and the Cité des Arts (Paris). Her recent projects include a solo CD, Horizons, of orchestral and large ensemble works, released in 2017 by LMIC, and an hour-long multimedia piece, In Search of Lost Beauty, scored for piano trio, electronics, and video projections, on a forthcoming Starkland Records CD.
