Vitalija Glovackyte


from We Are For A While

We Are For A While is a sonic and visual tale about recycling. Offering new life to broken instruments, borrowed music and battered machines recovered from dumpsters, beaches and alleyways across the UK, the work is a deep-felt and jovial exploration of the forgotten and the unwanted. These material outcasts prove their own worth in sonic beauty against the more conventional instruments, making this work as much about the art of re-using as it is an ode to trash. Originally a 50 minute multimedia performance for acoustic instruments, found objects, live lighting and electronics, We Are For A While was created for and first toured with Apartment House, as part of Vitalija Glovackyte’s 18 month residency with the group. It is released via ONO.
