“Lovely Banalities” is the second release in Crónica from  
Lithuanian sound-artist Gintas K, after the much acclaimed double CD  
from 2006 “Lengvai / 60 x one minute audio colours of 2kHz sound”.

“Lovely Banalities” presents fourteen short pieces — a collection  
of miniatures, impressions, sketches, innuendos and errors — inspired  
on the exceptionality and suprisingness of the quotidian, on the  
extraordinary everydayness.

Gintas K draws analogies between these pieces and Modest Mussorgsky’s  
suite “Pictures at an Exhibition”, mapping fourteen individual  
moments, ready to be visited by the listener. The pieces of  
synthesized digital music are contrasted with evocative field  
recordings, captured in Gintas K’s hometown of Marijampolė, during a  
windy summer Sunday afternoon. These are sounds of lovely and  
quotidian moments, unremarkable sounds that are an evocation of  
forgotten and rediscovered feelings, of small and precious things from  
the past that still hover in the air, that remain in the streets,  
somewhere in the grass. The field recordings weave the pieces  
together, guiding this auditory visit. “Lovely Banalities” thrives  
by its apparent formal and structural simplicity, but this simplicity  
— as in everyday life — is an illusion.

“Lovely Banalities” was composed by Gintas K. The lovely cover art  
was created by David Muth. It was designed and mastered by MCarvalhais.
