The results of the creative workshops will be presented to a wide audience by the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre, together with the Lithuanian Composers’ Union and the Jauna Muzika festival, in an immersive media concert in a specially designed spatial sound and video installation in the cultural complex “SODAS 2123”.
