Back in the nineties, Gintas K was the founding member of Modus, a pioneering Lithuanian industrial band that still remains something of a legend, which is not surprising given the superb quality and boldly experimental nature of its recordings. As Modus eventually became a one-man act, however, Gintas K switched to solo work in the areas of psychoacoustics, microsound, noise and post-techno. His conceptual and challenging audio works are released by international record labels, and selected tracks are featured in international experimental music and sound art compilations. Gintas K is a frequent participant of Lithuania's important electronic music and contemporary art events, as well as major international festivals like Transmediale.
