Tell us a little bit about yourself and your life. Not necessarily music-related!
I’m a not very communicative slow turtle, which loves boxing and cooking. I can also speak Lithuanian.
How did you first get into music?
I started with guitar, but it was very boring so I decided to make my life more exciting and started playing drums in the jazz orchestra.
What made you decide that music would be an important part of your life?
I loved touring with bands and all the stuff you do after the concerts.
What has been your musical highlight so far?
One time in a free jazz session I was so much into the music that I almost fell into a catharsis, I couldn’t feel anything but God playing through me. This is the moment I will never forget.
Who are your favourite composers/artists/musicians?
What do you anticipate for the Nevis Ensemble?
I think it is a good example of looking at music in a different kind of way, where the most important thing is not the music itself but how it is presented to people.
