Arma Agharta


Arma Agharta is a sound performance artist and promoter from Lithuania devoted to improvised and experimental music. He got involved in the worldwide underground 20 years ago by publishing zines, running label, playing in bands and organizing shows. Currently Arma performs both solo and in collaborations, also curates special events in Lithuania.

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.

Arma has participated in many festivals and special events including Dark music days (Iceland), Sonic Protest (France), All Ears (Norway), Arctic Sounds (Greenland), Volta (Mexico), Klex (Malaysia), A Love Supreme (Spain), Destroy Vancouver (Canada), Transgresje (Poland), Gogbot (Netherlands), Sonic (Denmark), Jauna Muzika (Lithuania),  Construction (Ukraine), Le mini Who (Netherlands), Mlode Wilki (Poland), Camp (Germany), Aposition (Russia), Hamselyt (Ukraine), Other Worlds (UK), MEM (Spain), Noise & Fury (Russia), Sonic Circuits (USA), FIME (Mexico), Experi-Mental (USA), SOTU (Netherlands), Sound Around (Russia), Garso Architektūra (Lithuania), Supynes (Lithuania), Braille Satellite (Lithuania), Yaga (Lithuania).
