This episode explores the music and creative process of Justė Janulytė. Her award-winning music is an inner journey and recognizable by long, slow expositions, gradual enrichment of textures as if being transported to a completely different time and place. These dimensions emerge from nowhere until you immersed in a special atmosphere while you experience an equally surprising disappearance. This virtual conversation between New York City and Milan, we discuss her many perspectives on the creative process and cultural identity.
