LIVING TEMPLES is a multimedia art project in which modern technology helps blending location recordings from ancient Curonian sanctuaries in Klaipėda region with sounds obtained by natural objects collected in those places – tree branches, stones, birds feathers – and with sounds created using archaic shamanic instruments – drums, rattles, whistles, zithers. Our creative strategy is that the music is made in collaboration with the landscape, regarding it as a living being and allowing it to play its part.

Spells from the book “LITHUANIAN VERBAL HEALING CHARMS” by Daiva Vaitkevičienė are recited during the performance.
