2014–2024 | VILNIUS

“Muzika erdvėje” (“Music in Surroundings”) is the only site-specific music festival in Lithuania and the region dedicated to exploring the relationship between music/sound and the environment in specific locations, highlighting the architectural, urbanistic, historical, social, and other contexts of the places. Since 2014, the festival has brought music by composers, sound artists, and artists from other fields to more than 50 locations in and around Vilnius, including the Palace of the Grand Dukes of Lithuania, the Swedbank headquarters, the railway station, the Television Tower, public parks, and other places.

Over the years, “Music in Surroundings” has focused on themes such as various Vilnius communities, the city’s neighborhoods, stereotypes prevailing in public spaces, urban archetypes, the relationship between individuals and the state, and even the concept of time, among others.

Since 2019, the festival’s strategic partner has been the Lithuanian Composers’ Union. The festival is partially funded by the Lithuanian Council for Culture and the Vilnius City Municipality.

Directors of the festival – composer Matas Drukteinis (co-founder, managing artistic director) and composer Agnė Matulevičiūtė (artistic director).

Organizer – Culture Agency “Art Gene”.
