#5 Daydreaming with Julius Aglinskas

Exploring the intuitive nature of the compositional process, Aglinskas takes us on a journey of inner dimensions exposing the complex layers of solitude, authentic, but honest melancholy and an unusual talent of relating to his listeners. The composer shows his true self with pieces composed in an introspective style reminiscent of Feldman, invoking an experience transporting the listener into a nostalgic auto-pilot. You may feel a sense of longing as you listen and surrender to this special music and conversation.
