Ear to the Ground Scotland

Rūta Vitkauskaitė: Konnakol, Canntaireach and Collaborative Composing

February 16, 2022

Rūta Vitkauskaitė is a composer, performer and curator whose work in music crosses
conventional boundaries. She studied at the Lithuanian Academy of Music before moving to
London to complete her PhD at The Royal Academy of Music. Her music has been described as
'resembling natural forces - seemingly unorganised and chaotic forces sticking together a highly dynamic, vital and unpredictable whole, always generating an active emotion'.

While living in the UK, Rūta has developed an interest in music education and is currently initiator of CoMA, Contemporary Music for All, Glasgow branch.
