There are over fifty Lithuanian music personalities, bands and events from alternative, jazz, experimental, electronic, improvisational, classical and avant-garde territories presented in the magazine. Some are researched in detail, others are highlighted with a few accurate strokes. The various tours into these different Lithuanian music scenes and niches have been prepared by their best Lithuanian guides – Dovydas Bluvšteinas, Domininkas Kunčinas, Rasa Murauskaitė, Rūta Stanevičiūtė, Edvardas Šumila, Vitalijus Gailius, Laima Slepkovaitė, Eirimas Velička and Mykolas Katkus.
‘We are always proud of our authors who are experienced professionals in their fields, sharp analysts, sensitive observers, active participants in the scene and excellent writers nonetheless. It is interesting to read their texts and their insightfulness, expertise and appreciation of context leave a strong impression. It is amazing that the magazine continues to inspire the writing of these dense authorial texts at a time when press releases and interviews prevail in Lithuanian discourse,’ comments Asta Pakarklytė, the director of Music Information Centre Lithuania.
