The heterogeneity of Pranulytė’s style is determined by ideas – the importance of concept – which lead her continually to renew her musical language. Composer Juta Pranulytė has worked with vocal and choral music, sound and space synthesis and pieces that combine different media. Most of her music flows slowly but has scintillating textures. Her large-scale works are often site-specific, exploring both acoustic properties and symbolic meanings of a particular place.
I am a Lithuanian composer currently living between Vilnius and Graz. I’ve graduated from choral singing school in Vilnius with specialisation in musicology, studied composition at the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre, Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Victorian College of the Arts (University of Melbourne), and currently studying at the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz with Franck Bedrossian and Computer Music and Sound Art with Marko Ciciliani. I have also spent time at the Vilnius Academy of the Arts, studying Art History and Theory, where I investigated practices of sound installation within Lithuanian art scene. I’ve attended composition courses, among which are the International Summer Courses for New Music in Darmstadt, Royaumont Voix Nouvelles; now also taking part in the Young Women Opera Makers Residency (Académie du Festival Aix-en-Provence).
My work has been selected for the Anthology of Lithuanian Art Music of the 21st Century released by Music Information Centre Lithuania, and music has been performed by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Dunedin Consort, Red Note Ensemble, Les Métaboles choir as well as Vilnius Municipality Choir Jauna Muzika among others.
