She has collaborated with some of the world’s leading ensembles and soloists including Teatro La Fenice Symphony, Gothenburg Opera Symphony, BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Polish National Philharmonic Orchestra, Brno Philharmonic, French Flute Orchestra, Riga Sinfionetta, Birmingham Contemporary Music Group, Ensemble Bit20, Orchestrutopica, Estonian Philharmonic Chamber and Male Choirs, Danish Radio Chamber, Kamer, Sequenza 9.3 and Camerata Silesia choirs, Quasar, Xasax and Flotilla saxophone quartets, cellists Mario Brunello, Francesco Dillon, Henri Demarquette, and Anton Lukoszevieze, flutist Manuel Zurria, saxophonist Marcus Weiss, harpsichordist Goska Isphording amongst others. Her music has been performed across Europe, the Americas, and Australia, and has featured in some of the world’s leading festivals including Sydney Festival, Schleswig-Holstein Festival, Venice Biennale, RomaEuropa, Holland Festival, Warsaw Autumn, Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, SonicA (Glasgow), Maerzmusik (Berlin), Biennale Némo (Gaîté lyrique, Paris), Musica festival (Strasbourg), Musik protokoll im steirischem Herbst (Graz), Musicadhoy (Madrid), Vale of Glamorgan Festival (Cardiff), Expositions of New Music, Moravian Autumn (Brno), Gaida (Vilnius) to name a few. Justė Janulytė first came into public view in 2004 when her graduation work White music, for 15 strings, was awarded as the best chamber piece of the year by the Lithuanian Composers’ Union. Furthermore, her five next compositions also won the same prize. In 2009 Aquarelle, for choir, won the 1st prize (in the category of composers under 30) at the International Rostrum of Composers in Paris. In 2011 she was awarded the Young Artist's Prize by the Lithuanian Ministry of Culture and in 2017 the Lithuanian National Arts and Culture Prize, the highest artistic distinction in Lithuania. The majority of the works by the author, written for dense monochromatic ensembles (only strings, only winds or only voices), explore musical time/space experiences through large-scale multilayered textures of infinite pulsating sounds and extremely gradual ‘thermodynamic’ metamorphoses. While balancing between the aesthetics of minimalism, spectralism and drone music, Justė Janulytė composes acoustic metaphors of optic ideas (Observation of Clouds for voices, winds and strings, The Colour of Water for saxophone(s) solo and orchestra, and Here at the quiet limit for male choir and string orchestra), and researches the visual nature of musical phenomena in the works where sound and image are fused together (Breathing Music for string quartet, electronics and kinetic sculptures, Eclipses for 4 strings, live electronics and soundproof glass installation, Sandglasses for 4 cellos, electronics and video installation). Justė Janulytė currently teaches composition at the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre, lives between Vilnius and Milan. www.justejanulyte.com Photo: © Dmitrij Matvejev

Cathy van Eck

Cathy van Eck

Jury2018

Cathy van Eck is a composer and sound artist. She focuses on composing relationships between everyday objects, human performers, and sound. Her artistic work includes performances with live-electronics and installations with sound objects which she often designs herself. She is interested in setting her gestures into unusual and surprising relationships with sounds, mainly by electronic means. The result could be called “performative sound art”, since it combines elements from performance art, electronic music, and visual arts. Her work transcends genres and is presented at occasions as diverse as experimental or electronic music concerts, open air rock festivals, sound art gallery venues, digital art events, or performance art festivals. Cathy has a teaching position at the Sound Arts department of the University of the Arts in Bern, Switzerland. She is a regular guest lecturer at other art and music universities. In her book Between Air and Electricity, published in 2017, she investigates the use of microphones and loudspeakers as musical instruments.
