Ričardas Kabelis


Photo: Edward Ussel

The striking austerity, characteristic of the major part of Ričardas Kabelis' compositions, seem to flow from the underlying formal procedures he employs such as meticulous reduction of musical material. Quite a few of his works are based on the exposition of a certain single isolated musical parameter (such as rhythm, harmony, or timbre), eliminating the others. Since the early 90's, he delves thoroughly into the subtleties of microtonal music and puzzles of its rhythmic arrangement. Hardly audible changes of timbre, microintervals and acoustic intensity in his compositions immerse the concentrated audience into an endless space/time continuum. Clearly off the mainstream of contemporary music, however, oeuvre by Kabelis', probably the most radical and enigmatic figure in Lithuanian music, is considered neither easibly performable nor listenable.
