God-blessed and Satan-driven music lovers find right beat.KLAIPEDA - Can ear-drum blasting electronic music go along with the eco thing? Can music make the local clergy speak of the Satan itself? In such a small country like Lithuania, both these things can happen.
Electronic beats Electronic Beats is a T-Mobile funded lifestyle concept which is composed of four projects:
Electronic music and ecology? Both are compatible, say organizers of the traditional alternative electronic music festival Tundra that is to take place on the picturesque peninsula of Lake Duburys, Zarasai region on the holiday weekend of July 5-8.
Signifying that weekend's commemoration of the coronation of the only Lithuanian king, Mindaugas, Techno, Bass, Psytrance and Chillout sounds, produced by more than 100 world-famous electronic music performers from a dozen countries, some as far away as Canada and the United States The United States and Canada share a unique legal relationship. U.S. law looks northward with a mixture of optimism and cooperation, viewing Canada as an integral part of U.S. economic and environmental policy. , will fill up the peninsula and its surroundings.
"Tundra is one of the leading electronic music festivals in Lithuania and the Baltic countries, one in which can be distinguished a strong bond with nature and a nine-year history. Based on a beautiful lake peninsula, the festival covers a variety of musical genres, from techno to IDM (1) See identity management.
(2) (Integrated Device Manufacturer) A company that performs every step of the chip-making process, including design, manufacture, test and packaging. Examples of IDMs are Intel, AMD, Motorola, IBM, TI and Lucent. , from drum'n'bass to post-dub-step, and from psy-trance to ambient," says Aivaras Ustinavicius, the festival spearhead.
He says this year's Tundra will be as mysterious as never before. "At night, all wanderers and dancers will be illuminated by the bright full moon and supervised by four majestic gods of Tundra. The dreamy location will offer daytime activities, too - workshops, meditation, performances, baths and yoga sessions. Numerous kitchens will deliver ample energy, while the acts on the four stages will provide the space and the sound to burn it," relates the Tundra Festival organizer.
For environment-conscious Zarasai Municipality to let this army settle into the picturesque peninsula was a big challenge. The authorities braced for the worst, but the Tundra folks have appeared to be of no concern so far. "Already for five years, we have been cherishing the eco traditions - encouraging all festival participants and guests to protect the local nature," says Ustinavicius.
And that goes well beyond nice words: along with the stage, a number of different eco-workshops will be set up to teach the festival guests how to properly recycle garbage.
"Besides, we'll use bio-degradable ashtrays and china," adds Ustinavicius. The festival initiator says tickets are still available and can be bought online via Tiketa.lt.
Devil-driven ones will swarm Anyksciai
And no other Lithuanian music event can rival it for the clergy's curse and accusations of Devil worship worship of the power of evil; - still practiced by barbarians who believe that the good and evil forces of nature are of equal power.
