Juozas Milašius

Guitarist, composer and author of various performances, the enfant terrible of the Lithuanian jazz scene. Probably no other Lithuanian jazz musicians has stirred up so much controversy as the experimenting conceptualist Juozas Milašius. Having made his stage debut in 1986, he earned the reputation of the most uncompromising jazzman in Lithuania, entering the areas of total free, uncontrollable noise and bizarre sounds, provoking both unconditional admiration and relentless opposition. Completely overtaken by the guitar, Juozas Milašius has tested the limits of this instrument playing solo and experimenting in various projects with improvisers, electronic and experimental sound artists.
