Arma Agharta is the sound performance artist and promoter from Lithuania devoted to improvised and experimental music. With more than 451 performances in his baggage, he is one of the most active performers from Europe. In 2018, celebrating 20 years of involvement in the worldwide DIY music scene, he is going on a world tour, starting from Europe and heading towards North America and Southeast Asia.
His intense and high energy shows span a broad territory between the eruptions of chaotic noise and hypnotic psychedelic ritual to dadaist humour, odd bodily movements, spontaneous improvised games and the voice, detached from meaning and turning into unintelligible glossolalia.
Participated in these festivals and special events:
Sonic Protest (France), All Ears (Norway), Arctic Sounds (Greenland), Volta (Mexico), Destroy Vancouver (Canada), Gogbot (Netherlands), Sonic (Denmark), Construction (Ukraine), Le mini Who (Netherlands), MlodeWilki (Poland), Camp (Germany), Aposition (Russia), Hamselyt (Ukraine), Other Worlds (UK), MEM (Spain), FIME (Mexico), Noise & Fury (Russia), Sonic Circuits (USA), E:MF (USA), SOTU (Netherlands), Sound Around (Russia) and all the main Lithuanian festivals.
His music is exclusively released on cassette format in various European and American labels.
