The contemporary music ensemble Synaesthesis, established in Vilnius in 2013, has built a reputation as a daring ensemble that is uncompromisingly dedicated to new music. Having been awarded the Ernst von Siemens Foundation Ensemble Prize in 2020, Synaesthesis continues to widen its reach as a performing entity of considerable renown.

The team of musicians has taken up the mission of introducing works of experimental Lithuanian and foreign composers to audiences around the world. The ensemble’s vision extends beyond the sound into space, light, movement, and narrative — any medium that allows for professionally performed music to become a multidimensional experience and blur the lines between genres.
