Monikaze Electroacoustic Symphony
The St. Christopher Chamber Orchestra together with Monikaze, a MAMA award-winning young artist, present an exclusive concert of electroacoustic music. It will feature tracks from Monikaze’s recent album Laws of Distraction. “In an era defined by social media, the world has become a battleground for attention, click here and there, and before we know it, we’re gone,” says Vilnius-based composer, songwriter and producer Monika Zenkevičiūtė aka Monikaze. The composer employs her quirky vocal style to tell her story through its main character, while an intertwining combination of electronic layers and live-processed string orchestra textures narrate that character’s inner and outer world.
Monikaze is a native of Klaipėda, a graduate of the Stasys Šimkus Conservatory, and a graduate of the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre, where she studied composition with Mindaugas Urbaitis.
