ROYCE X is a project, dedicated to the 10th anniversary of electronic rock band ROYCE from Klaipėda. It will bring together various performers working in diversity of musical styles and genres. Enriched with the sound of string and brass music instruments, the well-known original compositions by the band leader Ilja Gun will take on a completely different form – somewhat unexpected, but very characteristic of their creator’s ‘cinematic’ sound and colour. The concert programme will include both new and well-known works including “Of Sand and Milk”, “Coming Home” and “Go People”. The project hopes to appeal to a wide audience of academic, rock and electronic music fans.
