Hello, my name is Arkadij Gotesman, and I live in Lithuania.
I would like to offer your festival my new project, "Music for a Non-Existent Ballet."
The solo composition for percussion was inspired by the instruments themselves. Graceful and almost imperceptible hand-playing with brooms and sticks creates the illusion of two dancing figures. During this process musical story is born a ballet that is created in audience minds here and now. This music is a multi-novel about my sounds, myself, and my town, Vilnius.
