Lithuanian composer Justė Janulytė's works, mostly written for dense monochromatic ensembles (strings only, winds only, or voices only), explore the musical perception of space-time through vast textures with extremely progressive metamorphoses.


Striking a balance between the aesthetics of minimalism, spectralism and electroacoustics, she composes sonic metaphors of visual ideas (The Colour of Water for solo saxophone(s) and orchestra, Was there a Swan? for orchestra), searching for the visual nature of musical phenomena within works where sound and image merge (Breathing Music for quartet, electronics and kinetic sculptures, Sandglasses for 4 cellos, electronics and video).
