Adomas Zubė

radio producer and cultural journalist, currently collaborating with the journalist collective NARA. His stories have been featured on LRT RADIO and LRT KLASIKA, where for the past three seasons he has been producing ‘Arijos dekonstrukcija’ (The Deconstruction of the aria), a programme dedicated to opera storylines. In his creative practice, Adomas explores how audio journalism can be intertwined with sound art and how authentic voice recordings, together with other sound elements such as soundscapes, vibrations and music, can merge into a single, fluid sound texture.
