#10 Cold Beauty and Fragile Moments with Diana Čemerytė

This dialogue investigates what at first seems to be a window into an ascetic and still landscape of sound, but we also experience carefully crafted complexity that is nurtured by space and breadth cleansed from chaos and demonstrating a clear musical message worthy of a special calm. We discuss aspects of early music, Gregorian chant, deep dives into the creative process and uncovering how intention and inspiration transforms into musical encounters of ruthless honesty.
