Dominykas Digimas (*1993) is a composer of the younger generation, whose practice spans a wide range of sound and music practices. In addition to his work in the field of academic music, Dominykas is active in the contexts of sound art and performing arts.
The music of Dominykas Digimas is ascetic, never congested with too much fabric, concentrated. To an extent his works can be described as introverted; they encourage self-assessment and submerge in a subjective reflection. Characteristic is also a sense of unique, hovering melancholy, which he presents in slightly altered forms in his various works. It manifests itself in different ways: sometimes an accordion imitates the sounds of a traditional Japanese Shō and at times it is prompted by the solitary sound strolls through the city soundscapes. This emotional palette has been a part of the composer’s voice since the beginning and is characteristic of almost all of his works.
