Tomas Ciucelis

London based Lithuanian guitarist/composer who demonstrates his highly personal approach to jazz guitar by balancing composing, improvisation and live looping techniques.

About Me

London based Lithuanian guitarist and composer T.Ciucelis appeared in Lithuanian jazz scene in year 2000. After almost a decade of playing in various venues around Europe with his jazz trio, he moved to London and started performing as a soloist. Tomas demonstrates his highly personal approach to jazz guitar by balancing composing, improvisation and live looping techniques. "Tomas Ciucelis uses his FX-laden guitar as a field for sonic and compositional experiments, yet his explorations are far from being an end in itself and never turn into unlistenable meanderings. His guided tour down the string is as pleasant to the ear as it is adventurous. To put it shortly: Tomas is an intuitively talented and endlessly curious musician whose playing just cannot fit within the confines of traditional harmony, but neither does he want to abandon the solo jazz guitar style altogether. The result is a curious and infectious hybrid that you have to come up with a name for yourself. " --Jurij Dobriakov, culture critic
