'Variations in a-moll for a granular synthesis' was created by Gintas K in 2016, during an art residency in MoKS (moks.ee), Estonia. The album uses a classical variation form in a-moll and is an extremely overpowering listening experience. Stunning and surprisingly melodic harmonies keep emerging from the granulated and continuously shifting computer generated sounds.
