Born in 1988 in Lithuania. Julius Aglinskas represents the new generation of composers, producers and audio engineers. His compositions show influences of genres outside the classical realm; they materialize in his music regularly, yet never prevail.
In 2014 Julius Aglinskas graduated from the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre (LMTA), where he studied with Prof. Vytautas Barkauskas, and afterwards, with Prof. Rytis Mažulis. He also attended master-classes with Wolfgang Rihm, Andrew McKenzie and other acclaimed composers in Vilnius, Rostock/Germany and the UK. In 2011 his composition for mixed chorus The New Net In Two won the Third Prize at the Vox Juventutis ’11 competition. In 2013 his composition scored for two keyboards, Fragmentai dviems (Fragments For Two), was awarded the First Prize at the competition organized by the LMTA Centre for Music Innovation Studies and the Jauna muzika Festival.
The works by Julius Aglinskas were performed at different festivals, including Druskomanija (Druskininkai, 2010; 2012; 2013; 2014), Brücken (Rostock, 2011), Ahead (Vilnius, 2013) and Vasaros Klavišas Festival (Anykščiai/Lithuania, 2014). Recently, he began displaying his own organizational talents. In his hometown of Anykščiai Aglinskas organized a concert ‘Pasigarsink Anykščus’ (Turn Anykščiai Up) with performances of advanced popmusic and modern folk bands. In 2014 he organized the ‘Nonclassical Lithuania’, one of the events of the Vasaros klavišas Festival, that featured performances by Gabriel Prokofiev and Nwando Ebizie.
