w/ Antanas Dombrovsky

Arturas Bumšteinas and Lithuanian sound artist Antanas Dombrovsky collaborate on various musical projects since year 2002. Apart from creating together in Quartet Twentytwentyone they have performed many other different gigs together.

“Piano Piece No.13 (Carpenter’s Piece). SEQUEL.” (2011) is one of their common creations.

In 2008 Vilnius Contemporary Art Center British new music ensemble Apartment House (lead by Anton Lukoszevieze) performed a piece “Piano Piece No.13 (Carpenter’s Piece)” by Fluxus founder Jurgis Mačiūnas. In the image below (check the youtube video) you can see how the piano looked like just after the concert when it was “saved” by Lithuanian sound artist Antanas Dombrovsky and sampled extensively and recreated into a new experimental life-form together with another Lithuanian sound artist Arturas Bumšteinas.

Recording of this re-creation was done in Klaipeda in 2011. Authors of this piece are Antanas Dombrovsky & Arturas Bumšteinas. Photo in the video below is by Anton Lukoszevieze:
