Robots & Petals
Type: Vinyl record
Jonas Jurkūnas is a chameleon-like composer who successfully changes his creative ‘skin’ from traditional score writing, electronic sound experiments, and soundtracks for the theatre and cinema, to popular culture, background music, and – rarely but eagerly – interdisciplinary collaborations that offer opportunities for linking up with his diverse experience.
Robots & Petals (2016) reveals a great sense of humor and is based on intense and varied rhythms, a broad emotional palette, and diverse tempos from the orchestra.
Golden Chains (2021) exudes powerful energy and represents a mixture of ideas and techniques that locate it somewhere between jazz and classical music.
Temporarily. Letter to Charles (2012) ) is a composition inspired by the soundtrack for Temporarily, a film by Jūratė Samulionytė where the composer has used a musical inspiration from The Unanswered Question by Charles Ives.
